    January 28, 2015 - Saw the bottle on the shelf at Safeway. Read through some of your comments and have decided it may not be worth the risk.
    They are asking $74.99, is that too high?

There appears to be a herd mentality here that allows some CT people to feel comfortable bashing a wine only because others have done so.

    The $75 is too high though. I think ours were more like $55. As someone mentioned earlier the liter maybe more like $70.

Finally tried a bottle last night was not bad but for me not spectacular if you like fruit bombs probably worth it. Interesting let half the bottle sit overnight and just poured a glass fruit mellowed I think I am liking it more the second day
