Added Nov 16, 2011 at 4:16pmArbor Mist ... a not-that-cheap-añmost-wine version of Boones Farm. Not real wine but refreshing. Try a LA Cetto blanc de Zinfandel for real wine.

Added Aug 15, 2011 at 1:47pmJust a great wine . Great color , realy balanced flavor (sweet berries), great aroma (flowers with a hint of tobacco) . It is great. The fact that it has no cork, but a resealable cap makes it really convinient . Great value wine .

Added Aug 12, 2011 at 8:05pmI have to say , this wine is .... is .... just terrible . Good color , but an aroma that is all citric and a taste that is salty and just really unbalanced . Full of tanine and with an acid aftertaste . Use it only to prepare sangrias or avoid it at all costs . I give it one wine glass out of five .

Carlo Rossi Merlot 2011Compare and Buy
Average Price: $16.69
Added Aug 12, 2011 at 8:02pmI have to say , this is the best wine to serve to non wine drinkers . I you want to have a toast with people that do not drink wine , and you are not willing to drink cheap Boones or wine coolers this is the option to go with . It has a great aroma . It is sweet, but not too sweet . It has non tanine flavors or aftertaste . You can actually taste the wine (non like Boones wines that are completely full of artificial flavors) . It can be compared to Italian sweet wines , but with the plus side that Carlo Rossi is actually really cheap . (about 5 dollars, at least in Mexico) So, I give it 4 wine glasses out of five for the value.

Added Aug 12, 2011 at 7:47pmThis is a chilean wine, botteled by an American Winery (Gallo). The wine is smooth and has very low tanine . It helps a lot if you let it oxydize 10 to 15 minutes . It has a cherry and berries flavor , with a bouqet that reminds me of wet tobacco . Great value, defenetly better than most Gallo wines , and an excellet chilean wine .

Barefoot Pinot Noir 2009Compare and Buy

Added Aug 12, 2011 at 7:54pmFisrt of all, it has to be said that if you find californian Pinot Noir , you have to immediatly doubt the quality of the wine . Pinot Noirs are not very good in California or in all of the Mexican wine zone . Pinot Noir need a Cold harsh weather . California and Mexico have tried to develop this wines , but they have not been very succesful at it . Then again , I have to say that this wine is not that bad. Although I would still recommend Oregon wines , this one has a great purple color , with a great aroma (smells like grapes and berries) . The taste is great at first . Smooth and silky. The problem is the aftertaste. It has an unbalanced tanine flavor at the end. I would recommend to let this oxidyze overnight poured in a decanter in order to enjoy it better . Now ... it is about 10 bucks ... so ... it is not that bad for the price you are paying (a good Pinot Noir should be about 30 buscks) .
