    This review should be higher. Since I'm not a fan of Merlot, I'm already biased against the style, however I can certainly give points for sweetness. In typical Merlot fashion, the wine is dry, so this portion of character would be a 'crowd pleaser' I suppose amoungst fans, but is the reason why I'm personally docking points. Dry is here, but sweet makes me happy, though likely to the dismay of others. If you can make any sense of the review, the best summary would be: Dry and sweet. Try it if you like these, otherwise, stick to more familiar pastures.

    Light, sweet, a bit of white and and bit of peach, this refreshing splash is a relief for hot summer days. Peach comes in more in the aftertaste, slightly dry, a little tart, yet still sweet. I got it because I wanted something different and deliver on character it certainly did.

    Having tried the chocolate strawberry, I had a hint of expectation here regarding the milk chocolate, which delivered as one might expect. I was picturing this to taste like those chocolate oranges which are typically found around Christmas time. Surprisingly it was more like an orange Tootsie Pop, which I enjoyed as much as the chocolate oranges as a kid. The candy-like flavour had a distinctive sugary bite which I enjoy. Bottom line, if you're into that kind of ole candy flavour, give it a go.

    Dry, tart, indistinguishable from the pack. The hope was for something unique and characteristic. Back to the Relax Riesling for me.

    Rarely do I have a neutral review, or tastes for that matter, but this 'hot or cold' reviewer found some good points to speak of as well as things that I'm not finding to my tastes. On the plus, it is a wet rose with a pleasant light colour and sweet fruity finish. As for the 'not my style' side is a bit of a wood-like flavour not really indicative of a rose's I favour. That said though, it does add character that I'm sure a lot of folks are looking for, to know for sure that indeed you're drinking a barreled-like wine. If you like wet, sweet yet a tinge of oak refresher, give it a go to see if it's you.

    After lamenting the loss of availability in my area for Croft Pink, I'd been searching for a suitable substitute to sweeten my senses without submerging into sugarcoating. Duplin's Hatteras Red looks vibrant, smells slightly floral, lavishes the tongue with opulent sweetness, and yet throws in an air of mysterious character. What is that sensuous slight musk? Whatever it is, I want more. Some cherry and cranberry notes as well? Highly romantic. In matters of taste, let the discerner decide...while I go pour another glass.

    So you read the label as I did with various lovely descriptive words such as "Sweet", "Cherry", and "Wine" and perhaps got a bit excited by the prospect. Silly me, I purchased this thinking at least one of these would apply. I taste none of them, just a chemical that might be good for staining oak to cherry colour perhaps. One moment please while I pour this out.

    Unique packaging, wine in a cup with a resealable lid. This zinfanel is what is commonly expected from a good wine. Sweet with only a slightly dry finish, the greatest appeal comes from only needing to have one glass...or shall I say cup? Ideal for camping, picnics and the like, travels light, easy to stow away and satisfying overall.

    As a fan of Fu-ki Plum Wine, I was anxious to try another. Although this class is in the 'too sweet to have often' category for me, every now and then that dessert craving comes 'round. Most of the flavour is reminiscent of a cream sherry, which was a surprise but not altogether unwelcomed. There's a fruity finish however, which says "sugary plum" not found in any grape. I do like it a lot, but miss the cherry-almond found in Fu-ki. Gekkeikan Plum bridges the gap between sherry and Fu-ki, thereby earning a distinct place on the rack.

    Apparently there is a great variance when it comes to ruby port wines. Although the first scent and initial moment of taste tempted a fruity lusciousness, such a hint was plowed by a speeding locomotive of dry, wood flavour. If woody is for you, Cockburns. If you eat enough sugar, this might counterbalance. As for me, pass.
