"Suitable for summer. The days this week were hot and sticky, so a chilled wine appealed. By the way, the reason for the recent hiatus has been to enjoy short-lived glut of bitterol at a certain discount retail store. The clue is in the name. 6.5/10"

"Nice ruby colour, adequate with a spicy dish, but otherwise avoid. The only good attributes are that it doesn't taste of vinegar, is cheap and will not give a headache the following day. Do not take to a dinner party with friends; you will not be invited again. 3/10 "
