Review: Why Red Wine? WHY?! Overall this wine was rough to swallow, literally. It has a very strong flavor of…well…it’s hard to describe. On OneStopWineShop.com it is described with a dark cherry taste but I just can’t taste it!¬† I admit that the wine itself does go down smooth, but the taste is a little overwhelming for a wine beginner like myself. Even though I didn’t like it, there’s a chance you might. I bet that it would go good with some Italian or Chinese food but by itself, I can’t really appreciate the flavor it’s trying to accomplish. If it had a more distinct or sweet flavor, it probably would have gotten a higher rating. But for now, 1/5 it is!

Review:¬†Just as a forewarning, you have to have one heck of an acquired taste to actually enjoy this wine! (I get pretty harsh with this one…) Yeah, I am definitely still learning the intricacies in the world of wine, and I have my first wine to add to my DO NOT PURCHASE LIST! =( I knew that Red Wines are a lot different from White Wines, and you pretty much have to pay some hefty cash to find a sweet Red Wine that tastes good, but I never knew that a wine could taste this bad. This wine in-particular has 3 stages: Taste, After Taste, and an After After Taste. The initial taste starts off O.K., with a slight sweetness and then it wreaks havoc on your taste buds in the worst way imaginable. The aftertaste, if you can imagine I guess would taste like mud, and that’s after it’s already gone down your throat. Then in the final stage, all of a sudden there is a miniscule burst of flavor that tastes like Red Velvet that lasts maybe a millisecond and disappears forever! All of my hopes and dreams were crushed with this one wine.

Now that I think about it though, this might be a good wine to cook with, but I have no idea…seeing as how I poured the rest of it out, I doubt I will ever know. x.x
