Added Jun 20 at 9:05pmRarely 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 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.

Added Jun 13 at 9:29pmSo 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.

Added Jun 13 at 9:14pmUnique 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.

Added Apr 25 at 6:49pmAs 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.

Added Apr 17 at 9:17pmApparently 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.

Relax Cool Red 2012Compare and Buy
Average Price: $10.49
Added Feb 22 at 9:45pmHaving been impressed with the regular Relax riesling and amiable to the pink, I thought I'd give this a go. The description says dark cherry, yes there is perhaps a hint there, and plum but I couldn't seem to find it present. On the light-side of flavour depths, there is a slightly dry, slightly tart, and crisp taste that will probably have others remark, "this is nice" but for me, not a lot of the luscious and opulent presence that I personally enjoy most. Give it a try, it might be your thing if this description sounds your style, but I'm seeking something a little more robust.

Added Nov 23, 2013 at 6:49pmAlmost a cordial, thick and sweet. Washes surprisingly clean which seems signature for Schmitt Söhne along with its Riesling. Impressive character if you're into white dessert wines.

Added Nov 8, 2013 at 9:38pmAn interesting and unexpected red in two ways. As dark as the colour is, the flavour is refreshingly light. Otherly, the wine washes across the roof of the mouth to deposit the taste rather than the tongue. What this means entirely, I'm not sure, but will declare this a unique characteristic. It's neither dry nor wet, settling perhaps somewhere in-between, mostly sweet with a hint of tartness. Recommended for those who've tried various table wines but would like to try something new along with a meal not had before.

Added Oct 25, 2013 at 9:41pmSweet blackberry grape combo is a luscious burst of flavour at first, which then turns dry with only a slight tart finish. As such, it is easy to bottom the glass to go back for seconds. Some may miss the alcohol presence making itself known, but as for me the fruity rich flavour makes it pardonable.

Added Oct 12, 2013 at 5:14pmJudging this one unfairly because I have a favourite already in this category, but surely deserves a respectable nod. Slightly tart, slightly dry, definitely zinfandel. Biggest issue I have is that it doesn't seem to have enough character to distinguish it from other Zins. If you're a Skinny Vine collector, surely keep this in the rack, but for me there is another.
