    This is April 2010 and we found a bottle in a box on the floor(tile) and we jumped into the spa and opened it. It was great. Very sweet and smooth. More of a desert wine.

    Glad you enjoyed it Len – I did too. The fruit and the RS work in a synergistic way to make the sweetness seem even more so. Cheers! RJ
