Although some other dinner companions were able to drink this, most of us were not. It was just too acidic, non-varietal, and out of whack. One taster categorized this as "basically vulgar." Not sure if we were victims of the inconsistent quality thing associated with this label. - WB team 2003-01-29

[decant03  2003-02-24] This wine was almost rancid. I took only a few sips and had to throw the rest out. Never again. How can people agree with this wine. Horrid flavors pulsed through my mouth. This is not even worth the $3 I paid for it.  User Rating: 50.
