Bad wine taste like vinegar

The case I bought had a weird taste, maybe it was aged in an older barrel, not something I could give a good review .

...and don't pay any attention to that 5 star review listed (by:Douglas). i'm pretty sure it is the wine chateau supervisor andy. a false/incorrect review and rating to try to boost the sales of this bad wine. pretty shady if you ask me. reviews by jreville and albert were dead on.

Pretty decent bottle of everyday type wine. Nothing to write home about but for under $5 it's a good quality bottle. Enjoy.

This is a great wine because its a great deal for a quality wine. This wine is less than five dollars, yet it retails for nearly $16. I would compare it to some $20 wines. The trick, and it's important, is that this wine needs to breathe (at least thirty minutes to an hour) to be appreciated. It is flavorful with tannin and balsamic overtones that require breathing. There are some red wines that are not as good tasting immediately out of the bottle. This is one of them, but not because its a poor wine. In general, the Aeration Rule of Thumb: the more tannins and balsamic a wine has the more time it will need to aerate. I recommend this wine.....and take your time with it.
