Bad Wine

In showing wine is indeed a matter of individual taste... I bought a bottle of Luzon Verde, an organic red, on the advice of a local wine merchant, who thought my wife, who likes sweeter whites (and not much on the red side) would like it.

Blech. It tasted like grape juice with some sort of rancid citrus juice poured in. Really sickening sweet, with no real reason to drink it. J agreed - so down the drain it went.

I searched for a link to the wine or winemaker, and this is one of the many praises I found.

Either I'm a totally unsophisticated boor (which is entirely possible), or it just shows how fickle wine drinkers can be.
