1) it is DRINKABLE, with 2+ people
2) 13.5% alcohol content
3) tannins were quite distinct I must say. But it finishes nicely, in that the blech taste doesn't linger
4) somewhat burns when swallowed
5) doesn't NOT give pounding headaches hours later (yay!)
Verdict: will not purchase again. My search for a good Rose continues...

Cocobon red $6.99
Joseph Handler sweet red $4.99
La ferme julien rose $4.99
Espiral vinho verde $3.99
My favorite (affordable) wine is Sara Bee for $5.99, which is why I bought 2. All my friends know I am not a wine connoisseur. My taste in wine is sweet, almost like juice! My previous star was Michele Chiarlo Nivoli, ~$16/half bottle; also extremely sweet. It was definitely a table pleaser amongst my friends, but totally a ding to my wallet. Sara Bee is perfect in terms of price and sweetness. I paired it with salted apples and it was delicious!
I'll provide my feedback on the new wines I got, later.
