venturing back into the budget priced wines, i picked up this bottle at a local wine store, just because it had a low price and i liked the label. i really don't try many wines that i truly dislike. some are just not ready to drink. others are not bad. this one however was really not good at all. it wasn't corked, it just wasn't good. the nose was cherry, and sour ones at that. the taste was very fruit forward but it was more sour cherries and a bit too thin and green. not really sure what the wine maker was trying to accomplish with this. if you have tried this and liked it, please let me know why. i was not impressed at all. sells for about $7, and i would pass on this one.
