One of the highlights of visiting my parents these days is getting to try a new wine with them. I am usually the bringer of good sprits and good cheap wine, but this time my own dear mother supplied the wine. As a regular reader of Cheap Wine Reviews, she figured a wine with this name would be fitting for my site, and she was right.
Costing no more than a movie ticket, the name of this wine is simply “Cheap Red Wine”. Vintage? I couldn’t find it on the bottle.
Although the bottle lacks description, I found this wine to be medium-bodied and somewhat dry. It was pleasant to drink, but I found a mild metallic aftertaste a bit distracting. The bottle does at least tell you where it is from: Morgan Hill, California.
Save this cheap wine for a cheap friend or a cheap date. Mom gets an “A” for effort, but this wine gets a “passing” grade of 6/10 on my scale. I will be keeping my eye out for the “Cheap White Wine” to review sometime. Maybe my taste buds will agree with that one a little more.
Rating: 6/10 – Drinkable, but nothing special (other than the cool name)
