Deborah reviewed this wine:

At under 15 dollars this wine truly reflected its value. Light aroma with an undertone of red berries and grass similar to Sauvignon Blanc. The bottle states, " aromas of fresh strawberry, raspberry, and cherry". Its taste - dry, light, a hint of hibiscus and overall too delicate for my enjoyment. On a hot day an icy bottle of Cabernet Rosé paired with cheese and fruit could refresh the palate.

Bear Flag Soft White Wine Blend

Deborah reviewed this wine:

I definitely didn't care for this blend of Muscat of Alexandria, Symphony, Sauvignan Blanc, Chardonnay, and French Colombard. Just reading all those different grapes for one bottle shouts confusion. Bear Flag describes this semi-dry Soft White as "Ooh - La - Luscious", and their website video speaks of a wine layered in flavor with "so much going on". I tasted neither. Light on the palate, with notes of pear and peach, and the scent of fresh cut grass with a twist of honey, the wine lacks the depth for seasoned wine lovers. What makes this blend attractive to buy is it's label, a true conversation piece, and it's low price. Good for the novice. I'd serve this one chilled!
