This is a great wine for socializing. It is on the sweeter side but still maintains great red wine flavor. I really enjoy it.

This stuff is foul. It looks pretty enough in the bottle, and that is the only place it has any business being. It tastes sort of like cranberry vitamin water or watered down nyquil, but with a spectacularly chemical sweet cut to it and a mouthfeel that's like watery syrup. The finish is my favorite part, as it reminds me what a bad idea that was. Though I prefer drier wines, this is not wine. It is a fermented grape beverage packaged and sold to people who drink wine because it contains alcohol and it seems classier when it's in a bottle. I had a friend bring (and leave) a bottle when I had some people over for dinner. There was about half a bottle left (with students present), and after some thought it was turned into sangria. When half a liter of soda water, fruit, lemon juice, and sugar can't make a wine drinkable that is impressive. Managing to sell it year after year is almost laudable. Almost.

A great-looking rosé that's surprisingly bland. It does indeed look gorgeous in the glass, but that's about as good as it gets. It's somewhat sweet, but lacking any kind of character. It was like drinking sweet water: kind of bland smelling, kind of bland tasting in the front, kind of bland going down, and with a bland and slightly unpleasant aftertaste to top it all off. It's never a good sign when you have to struggle to down a bottle - wine's pretty delicious naturally, after all. I wouldn't recommend this. Then again, I prefer dark dry reds, so maybe I was barking up the wrong tree here to begin with.

A decent red for social occasions. It's sweet with a fairly pleasant aftertaste. You'll get sufficient bang for your buck.
