Bought this wine at Trader Joe's for $4.99. Clocks in at 13% alcohol.
Found some funky flavors on the nose - really strong pineapple scents and something else that I could only describe as crayons. Yes, the smell of Crayola crayons. Weird, I know.
In the mouth this wine starts off nice with syrupy tangerine, lemon flavors, then, unfortunately disintegrates at the center. The rich fruit present at the beginning falls off, leaving a steel-metalic taste and alcohol notes. I'm guessing this is because the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks, and didn't see any oak, according to the winemaker's site.
For less than $5, this wine is certainly better than many others at this price range, but I ended up leaving half the bottle unfinished. I might serve it at a big party, but overall I've liked Epicuro's reds, such as it's Salice Salentino, much better.
