    It's drinkable but will always be second best to a good Rioja.

    Is that red? My fav red is louis jadot beaujolais villages. It is very smooth, little tannin which I don't like.

    Yes, red. I whole heartedly recommend you buy yourself a bottle. (Spanish).

    Have you tried Buckfast tonic wine, made by the monks of Buckfast Abbey? In Scotland its somewhat part of the culture especially among teenagers. I actually went on a pilgrimage once to the Black-friars Abbey in Devon where they make it but when I arrived it was closed and I had to make do with licking the gift shop window.

    If I can find it in prudish America. Have you tried the Jadot? Isn't Mendoza Argentina?
