Charles Shaw Nouveau

Member Review by sarahbeader:

My husband and I tried the 2011 "vintage" of this red table wine, and really enjoyed it. We are your basic wine novices, but we've taste loads of reds at our local wine store, and this is really comparable with some very nice reds. It is dry, and the tannins are present but mild. We detected notes of black cherry, berries, & plum. This rating comes with the understanding that it is so good for being so affordable!
