Not bad for the price point, but not great either. Good to use to make Sangria.

Bought this in Golf Shores, Alabama June 2015 and just now drinking months later. Did not expect much, however it is mild and fairly smooth. A decent nose and not as dry as a normal Merlot, but lacks anything of great substance and/or character. Like many wines of this caliber, I find they often taste better the second or third day after air is removed/vacuumed and stored in the refrigerator. It would also likely benefit from decanting / breathing / aeration. Also, drinking 5 degrees below room temperature advised.
