Admittedly, easy to drink, but I just didn't enjoy the fizziness and slightly strawberry Kool-Aid flavor. (Was it supposed to be like that, or did a secondary fermentation occur in the bottle?) Nonetheless, I could see how some people would really enjoy this. And, at 400 rubles ($6.35) for a whole liter, it didn't set me back much just to try it.

Good enough for Hendrix, Saddam, and the Queen... this is the PBR of wine.

A little fuzzy and Kool-Aidie. For $5.00 not terrible, but probably for a nice hot summer day.

Great, even outstanding...if you're already way drunk. Other than that a somewhat sweet strawberry juice w some bubbles.

My parents used to drink this stuff back in the 1980s. It was a pleasant, fizzy, and cheap (€3) trip down memory lane to try it in Batalha, Portugal.

Deep ruby rose with an oaky and smoky start and little sizzle tarty finish with a hint strawberry
