That’s it. This is the last Aldi-carried wine I will try and review. I can’t be so fucking broke that I continue to drink this sort of vino. It’s more than the Winking Owl too! This bottle of garnet colored nonsense retails for $4.99. I’m sorry to admit it was purchased in a moment of frugality. I will suffer the consequences of sacrificing two Bolthouse Farms drinks a week to buy true, good wine instead.

Gack! Katrina’s favorite expression of all time returns in full force here. When you uncork the bastard and let it sit out, I think it smells worse! Not like a locker room full of undeodorized Robert Pattinsons, but close. It claims to be sweet; it is not. It’s sour-mash like, minus the whiskey. Which is a shame, because it would have improved everything. There is an overpowering plum taste, some darker notes like cocoa, and some undefinable ickiness that I cannot identify. I know it won’t improve my outlook even if I did identify it. There is a sickly weird taste during and after you drink the wine. I chilled it in the hope it would help somewhat. No dice. I mixed it with the Boone’s Farm Blackberry Merlot frozen cocktail. It ruined the Boone’s Farm. It will ruin whatever, avoid at all costs.

About generationgbooks

I read a ridiculous amount of books in a ridiculously quick amount of time. I read everything- fiction, history, sports, political science, fantasy, young adults, kids, romance- everything. I have worked in books almost half of my life now, and I never get bored with them. I need an outlet for books, where I can reach many people who may or may not give a fig about my opinions. I'm kind of known for rambling about books, so I figure it's about time I get off my lazy ass and take it to the blogosphere, where I have had the great luck of meeting many wonderful people inflicted with this book-disease. Personal stuff? Not much. I work too much, I'm single so I have more time to deal with this and less to deal with BS. I'm a die-hard Duranie and 80's fan. I am way too entertained with social media and astrology(for those of you who give a fig, I'm a Capricorn, or the sexier description- a seagoat.) for mine and the world's- own good. Only insanity can result from me blogging. That said, here goes!
