I’m not a wine snob. I drink, and enjoy, plenty of cheap crap from Trader Joe’s. I love nice wine too; don’t think I’d be allowed to live in the Willamette valley if I didn’t. But I’m just prefacing this so you know I’m serious.
I tried to get a reaction shot of Nick drinking it but he wouldn’t let me. This is the closest one.
This wine tasted like straight up dirt. Mixed with poop. Or, to be more classy, manure. I could not believe how much it tasted like soil. I’ve had earthy wine, I know sometimes you can taste soil tones…this was liquid dirt.
Nick checked the label to see if it listed dirt as an ingredient.
We ended up googling the wine to see if anybody else has hated it, and there was a review saying the wine improved after decanting two days. TWO DAYS. Who keeps wine in a decanter for two days? Anyway, Nick and I tried it and omg. The wine was even worse. I had to spit it out of my mouth and we poured the wine down the drain.
Don’t buy it. Don’t drink it. Or if you do drink it, do it as a prank with a wine snob and tell them it’s expensive.
