This is a decent sweet wine for the person that doesn't care for any type of dry wines.
Someone mentioned that it tastes like a grape soda and I agree. There is a bit of an easy kick as you drink it down.
The bottle recommends being chilled but I like it at room temperature.

Perfect balance of sweetness... Just like drinking an adult version of Welch's Grape Juice!

Sweet, I actually enjoyed this quite a bit. It's what I imagined wine tasted like in biblical times. Will definitely buy again.

Surprisingly good for a sweet red. I'm usually not a fan but this one has won me over

This wine is fruity with a smooth, almost flat finish. The ripe red berries dominate the palate. Full-flavored and sweet. Great dessert wine. The wine has a lot of weight from the sugars. The soft tart aromas become more apparent on the palate if swished around in the mouth.

Food pairing: chocolatey desserts
Situation pairing: casual drinking when doing at home beauty rituals or for warm baths in the winter.

Against all odds, this was really good with Cinnamon Churro Smashmallows.

It tastes like grape juice. I love it, honestly. A good sweet wine without being too sweet. It's better a little chilled.
