Chilled in the fridge for about 10 minutes; poured and waited; tasted and waited; waited some more. It never really came around for me. I guess you get what you pay for, but I expected much more from this bottle. Oh well. Moving along.

Very fruity, with strong apple and pear notes. Very sweet, but a good desert wine.

Great starter Bordeaux! Bought on recommendation from wine store personnel and was not disappointed. This is a great introduction to French wine.

Wow! This is a VERY sweet wine! Cherry, cherry, cherry. No structure at all; flabby and overly-sweet. Not recommended. However, at the price ($4.99), I guess you get what you pay for.

This was a surprisingly pleasant experience. I had seen the good reviews on this website before I purchased, but didn't expect what I got upon opening. Once the cork was popped, it was a powerful blast. But I allowed it to rest and breathe for a couple hours and, wow, am I glad I did! It rounded out very well, with legs to match! Very highly recommended. May need to wait a few years for it to come to its prime, but it still drinks very well now.

Very sweet and fruity; hardly any tannins; overwhelming fruit of dark cherry and strawberry
The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle.

Very surprising! Tannins were strong but not overpowering. Alcohol seemed a bit high, as well. Overall, a great wine for the money!

very, VERY nice wine for the price...smooth and subtle, it doesn't take a whole lot of experience to know that this is a very good starter wine for the price.

Thin and fruity with powerful aftertaste. Very fruity and overwhelming at times. Good with seafood.

Quite a dry wine that improved with aeration; quite strong when first opened, but this wine settled down quite a bit once it was opened; probably won't buy again, but it was worth the price paid.

Outstanding wine for the value...drank the entire bottle by myself; it was empty before I realized it was gone. Will purchase again.

Absolutely loved this wine! Great for those hot Texas summers. Light, cool, crisp with heavy sweetness and notes of honeysuckle. This was a great crowd-pleaser and, for the price, it was a great deal. Will definitely buy and consume again. One note is that is an incredibly sweet wine, so it's best left until after dinner.

Agree with my peers; this bottle was undrinkable in almost every aspect; very harsh and acidic with little to no fruit to speak of; very thin and unbalanced; light color; poor choice; I guess you get what you pay for.
