I know everyone raves about this, but it was too sweet to accompany a meal. It's a good wine if you don't really like wine very much and want something sweet. For us, though, it's probably not something we'd buy again. Tastes of blackberry jam and roasted chestnuts.

Very fruit forward medium bodied red wine. Good every day drinker and only $8 a bottle at Safeway. A little too sweet for some.

A bit sweet, but a nice easy flavor. Good for a party, attractive label. :-)

Too sweet and oaky. Easy drinking though, I'm sure it would be a crowd pleaser

Artificial vanilla flavored coffee beans with whipped toffee cupcake frosting...mixed with Juicy Juice fruit punch. A red for girls who are used to sugary cheap wine product Moscato and "girls' nights!" -- when they want to feel like actual adults by drinking a red. However, this is not. it. Stick to your Yellow Tail, ladies.

Very oddly sweet. Vanilla seems to really overpower. Didn't enjoy it. (However others at the cookout that tried it seemed to really like it. Acceptable for a cheap cookout wine)
