Great for an outdoor cookout, we drank it with shrimp kabobs. Light and crisp and citrusy. An uncomplicated wine, it's nice quality for the price, and definitely a crowd-pleaser - those who didn't drink a lot of wine liked it. I'm going to order more.
This wine is fruity and smooth. Really a great shiraz. Even my husband, who doesn't usually like reds, likes this one. Try the Marquis Philips Shiraz 9 as a special treat if you like this wine!
Very Viognier-like, slightly sweeter than most other whites...grapefruit is definitely a good description of both the flavor and aroma. Nice surprise - I also received it as a club selection - great for the price.
I have never had luck with lower-priced reds - but this one is a winner. It was a club selection and one I would never have tried had wine.com not sent it to me. Full-bodied, fruity, chocolatey...all the characteristics of a wine 5 times as expensive. Highly recommended, especially at this price!
This one is a great wine for the price. Earthy, buttery, but not too sweet. I cellared this one for a week or so it was served at 57 degrees, and was perfect. Highly recommend.
Delicate and smooth, went great with both chicken and pot roast...ordered 4 bottles, and might have to order more! Worth the price - I am going to give a friend a bottle for her birthday - if there's any left by then!
As a reviewer before me noted, I am also a mostly-red wine drinker. I have not had a lot of luck with roses, and this one came as a wine.com club selection. Usually I find roses to be too tart and watery, this one was full of flavor, mildly sweet and even held up with ice cubes in it (I know, but I couldn't wait for it to chill down to drink the first glass!). High alcohol, but flavorful and fruity nonetheless. I am hosting a wedding shower for a friend, and will be serving this wine as a refreshment for the guests!
I did not enjoy this wine. It tasted thin and watery. It was very "grapey"...this was a wine club pick and usually the selections are great, but this one was not a hit with me!
Chocolatey, rich and smooth. Very much like a California Cabernet. Loved it! Let it stand for a minute before pouring, and use a filter, as there is a fair amount of sediment in the bottle (at least, there was in mine).
As the reviewer before me said, this isn't a very complex wine. However, for the price, it is wonderful. Drink this one super cold, if it's too warm it's too sweet. My sister, who only likes Reisling, likes this one. It's a nice crowd pleaser because it is slightly sweet, but not too much so. Drink with seafood, cream-based dishes, and salads.
