I received this wine as a gift from a friend. It was an acceptable table wine. It was nothing special.
Very good for a $2 dollar wine.
Great with ethnic beef dishes.
Of course it's cheap and decent. It's Chuck (of some number of dollars depending on the state you're in)! Nice light fruits -- darker tannins stand out far too much. You can tell you're drinking alcohol. Still, it's eminently drinkable.
