Once you open this bottle and let it breathe, it's delicious. I love the fruity after notes that this wine has. This is my new go-to wine for entertaining friends. It can be paired with many meals. It's nice with definite fruity notes that really leave you wanting more.
I didn't like this at all. I usually get boxes of Jackson Triggs Shiraz or Merlot but can settle for Peller Estates boxes on sale or with extra air miles. Since it's January and my Christmas was sandwiched between 2 car repairs, the sale price on Bodacious made me decide to get it instead. Sweet and not as "bodacious" as I'd hoped. Kind of thin if you're used to Merlot or Shiraz. It'll drink fast it's so sweet so I hope to replace it soon. I'd only buy it again in a similar budget crunch. But even with the crunch, I wish I'd forked out the extra few bucks.
Bodacious is a full-bodied Ontario red wine. It is a blended wine being a mixture of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon which makes it a great wine either alone or paired with food. At just over ten dollars a bottle I don't think you can go wrong. It has a fruity palate and I find it very enjoyable. No sweetness at all. Just perfection!
This is a great red wine. Very bold but smooth at the same time. I'm an avid red wine drinker and enjoy this one alot. It also is priced out very well!!
I am an avid red wine drinker, this is a good choice of you are looking to change things up a bit, it is on the heavier bodied side but still enjoyable if pairs with a good steak or a fish. I find a glass is easy to sip on but price could be more Forgiving seeing that it's not the best wine out there.
This is BY FAR my very favourite wine. It's fruity without being too sweet, and not at all oaky, something I cannot stand in a red wine. It's bold and smooth, and it now comes in a box, which is perfect. The first glass and the last taste absolutely the same. Highly, highly recommend this wine. Plus it's a Canadian wine, which makes me happy.
Normally I drink white but due to having guests over that prefer red I decided to pick up this bottle. Cute simple label. I really enjoyed it. Tastes very smooth.
I usually cannot drink red wines. I bought a bottle of this because I needed some for a recipe and then didn't want to waste it! It is pretty much all I buy now! I love Bodacious and have now tried the whole lineup!
I used to be a very loyal white wine drinker, but I've been in a red wine phase recently. I am certainly no expert, and I would not consider myself a "wine snob", I just drink what I like. If I don't know what to get at the LCBO I buy what is on sale. (Sophisticated, no!?) It's basically Russian roulette with wine. I very rarely come across one I really don't like. But I stumbled onto Bodacious Red Wine and I love it! It is sweet, but not too sweet. The flavour is lovely! Some hints of berries. I like to sip my wine while relaxing, so I can't tell you what to "pair" it with. I usually pair it with a bowl of popcorn and a good movie (Olivia Pope style) (If you haven't seen "Scandal" you won't get that one, but it's a GREAT show!) (Sorry about the review within a review)
Anyway, I don't know what all the wine tasting terms mean, like "tannins" or "full-bodied" so I won't pretend I that do. But I know that Bodacious tastes great, so if you like red wine, try a bottle of this one!
I wasn't a huge fan of this wine.. I found it to be too sweet. It was good once I got a glass down haha, not sure I would buy this wine again.
