I saw this on special and thought I'd try it, especially since a portion (HALF) of their proceeds goes to various charities. I expected mediocrity and was absolutely floored when I uncorked my first bottle, a merlot. It tastes like a wine that costs 2 to 3 times as much. I am now placing my second order. By the way, shipping was very prompt and the wines were well packaged, arriving in good condition. Considering the Holiday deliveries and how some packages have been mutilated, that was a relief!
