13% ABV

I don’t know why I have not seen, nor tried this wine earlier.
This stuff is is inexpensive. Cheap even.
It is under eight bucks for crying out loud.
I was expecting some real rot gut but was surprised. It is not that bad at first taste. I guess that is what you get when you put your expectations real low. And in real terms, what can you really expect from a wine that is perhaps the least expensive in Ontario? I’m not gagging as I drink this. I am not making a sour face. But then again I am not thinking – WOW.
This stuff is drinkable. After the second glass I have an after taste in my mouth that is not too pleasant. It is not disgusting mind you, it is just a taste that lingers and makes you think about your toothbrush and the selection of toothpastes that might be had in your bathroom.
