He says: Pretty boring and unspectacular. A dilute palate accompanied by a harsh, tart finish. Even the bottle is dreadfully ugly. Avoid.

She says: There is not much to say about this wine; it was clearly the most disappointing. A simple palate of red fruit with some dusty notes. Unmemorable except for the gimmicky shaped bottle.
