I give this a good rating because it's red wine. That is all.
This is my favourite red wine under $10 (US) at the moment. I recently discovered it when my local store had it on sale for $5, and while I usually am a little suspicious about wines that are so inexpensive, the regular price of nearly $10 plus the 94 point rating from the 2008 California state fair and the Gold Medal from San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (2011) convinced me to try it.
I'm no connoisseur, so those accolades seem pretty impressive to me. Maybe they're meaningless: I don't know. What I do know is that this wine is rich and full-bodied and has a giant rooster plastered on the label. And really - can you beat that? CAN YOU?
