I received this wine as a gift from a friend. It was an acceptable table wine. It was nothing special.

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.
