classing in everything I do
Not usually into reds, but this was smooth and inoffensive. Dry, bold taste, typical red, but none of the harshness I usually associate with reds. — 3 years ago
I think air must have gotten into the bottle or it may have been stored improperly, because it had a stale, flat (in terms of taste, not carbonation), day old wine taste. Definitely not our cup of tea.
Edit/update: we had a second bottle which turned out absolutely delish, but probably wouldn't repurchase just because there's apparently a chance of getting a bad bottle. — 3 years ago
The perfect wine for people who are not sure if they like wine:
Is it too sweet? No.
Too sour? No.
Too bitter? No.
Blue nun is perfectly inoffensive. It's watery and refreshing and it goes with everything. Not the strongest "wine" taste, but that's why I like it. — 3 years ago
I like the taste: grapey and refreshing... But this stuff is just too cloyongly sweet. — 3 years ago
Not sweet, which I like, but kind of flat/lacking character and it burned on the way down. Very winey tasting and good value for an every day red wine that's not pumped full of sugar to mask it's flaws, I'm just not particularly into red wine.
UPDATE: we only drank about half the bottle the day it was opened, and when we went to finish it the following day it was nasty and oxidized and vinegary. Would not repurchase based on how quickly it turned. Usually we can enjoy a bottle of red over 2-3 days, and this was a disappointment. — 3 years ago
If you're not sure if you like sake... Try sparking sake! This has the typical sake taste, but is slightly sweet, light in alcohol, and carbonated. Very easy to drink! — 3 years ago
So refreshing and tasty. The deliciousness of a bellini with none of the hassle or seasonality of making white peach purée. — 3 years ago
Much more sour than I was expecting. Okay, just very sour. Would probably not spend the money again. — 3 years ago
Not too sweet (which I was worried about for a cheaper rosé). Although still not my cup of tea: l'm new to wine and just starting to develop my pallet and this tasted too "winey". Although if you like wine you'll probably like this.
I usually drink blue nun (re: watery and inoffensive), so I'm probably not the best judge. I would not purchase this Spier wine again, although I don't think there's anything wrong with it, maybe I just don't like chardonnay-pinot noir blends.
UPDATE: we drank half the bottle the day we opened it and then left the rest in the fridge for two days. When we went to finish the wine today it had mellowed out nicely and was smooth and just delightful to drink. No off taste from oxidation at all! I really hate the taste of oxidized wine and it's a shame how many half bottles get poured down the sink because we're not heavy enough drinkers to finish a bottle in one sitting... Will be buying this wine again specifically because it stayed fresh even after two days! — 3 years ago
