Yes, that is a -1 you see on the rating. How can you have a -1 on a scale of 1 to 5? When it’s your blog, you can! And I am now using it.
Some background(culled from my memory, so if there are odd ramblings or spacing between words, you know why).: This is a Dave Matthews wine. Yes, THE Dave Matthews- the singer. Of whom I had one album. Then never again. After having the wine, well, I can just say I don’t think there’s a lot that Mr. Matthews can do well.
The wine itself- not very crisp. It’s light, but on the side of the light taste, is the underbelly of boring. I could not pinpoint any specific flavor, neither could Dylan. It tasted like seltzer water with a little itty bit of lemon spritz. Dylan got the idea of breaking out the Magic Bullet and putting fresh strawberries in it, blending it up, chilling it for a while, and trying it then. Well, that DID improve it somewhat, but I felt bad for sacrificing good, juicy strawberries for this wine. I suspect Dylan felt the same. It just plain sucks. It’s flat. There is a slight acrid aftertaste also, kind of like drinking crisp, cool, battery acid. I decline.
Sorry, Dave Matthews, like your music, your wine sucks.
