Purple Moon Shiraz Manteca California 2005

Member Review by Tone7171:

For the price, it's a great bottle wine. Just a little something to have around the house. Picked it up at Trader Joes for $3.99. Wish I could be more descriptive but it's been about 2 weeks since I had it, just picked one up the other day but haven't opened it yet.

About  Purple Moon Shiraz: The first bottle we tried, we could not believe how good the wine was for the price. We tried a couple more bottles, one of them was not good.

About  Purple Moon Shiraz: The first bottle we tried, we could not believe how good the wine was for the price. We tried a couple more bottles, one of them was not good. We decided that was freakish so we bought 5 more bottles. Big mistake. Out of those, only one was good, the rest of them were not drinkable , I am being charitable. We read many negative reviews on this wine, but we didn't believe them because the first couple of bottles were so good. Mystery solved. The lesson here is, "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!" What is worse than a bad wine is an inconsistent wine that yanks your chains. Lesson well learned. Read less

Tasted like concentrated green pepper juice, mixed with glass cleaner. This wine was terrible. I bought from Trader Joes while on vacation, since we dont have them in Utah. This wine got some decent reviews, so I figured why not. My wife got sick, and I had to spit the wine out. Not sure if it was just a bad bottle, or this is how they all taste, but I wont be finding out. I will not try this again!
