 Tasted by lefty815 on 7/15/2012 & rated 89 points: We love it. Especially for $8 (1382 views)
 Tasted by Mike Mann on 10/8/2010: Nice nose lots of tanins (1938 views)
 Tasted by ttuominen on 2/5/2010 & rated 89 points: A beautiful, slowly cooked rack of Australian lamb. A real experience with the smoke from the charcoal together with the tender and juicy lamb. A full, manly meal. And for this price, definitely worth a try! (2193 views)
 Tasted by cnr128 on 11/1/2009 & rated 83 points: Liked it better a year ago. Kind of flat...past it's prime I suppose. (2361 views)
 Tasted by vinole on 4/25/2009: NR. Used to make sangria for a party with Cuban food. (2727 views)
 Tasted by Captain Haddock on 3/30/2009 & rated 86 points: Really quite palatable and reasonably interesting after airing, when the plummy, slightly tart (acidified?) fruit gains a smoky, earthy dimension. (1701 views)
 Tasted by ICWHITE on 1/18/2009 & rated 75 points: Dark ruby syrup and spice but not very nice! A bit middle of the road. (1836 views)
 Tasted by smackers on 1/16/2009 & rated 70 points: Undrinkable (2118 views)
 Tasted by Mark in Seattle on 1/10/2009 & rated 78 points: Don't buy this. Even at $6.50. Life is too short. (1916 views)
 Tasted by craigbeck on 1/1/2009 & rated 81 points: Not a bad table wine but probably a little overpriced for mass produced supermarket plonk - a little thin - lacks depth or character (1857 views)
