White Zinfandel is crap. That’s my opinion. I’ve never had a white zin that I liked in any way. This one is no different and I think it will be my last. If you think you know of one, cheap or not, that isn’t crap let me know and I’ll try it. Otherwise I’m done. This rose crap smells like rotten cherries and tastes like kool-aid spiked with cheap vodka. Yuck.

Very pink in color and it smells and tastes like strawberries. These Beringer wines tend to taste like cheap wine, more so than other wines that are in the same price range. I’m not a big fan. It’s fairly tasty and I can see why a lot of people would like it though.

Umm, yeah. This is what I expect when I drink a White Zinfandel and that’s a bad thing. I read an article about how you shouldn’t be a snob and there are good White Zinfandels out there. While I’m sure that’s true if you pay enough, I’m cheap so I’ve never had a good one. This one is a light red color and has a light, fruity taste. It’s like the McDonald’s of wine, wine for those who don’t really appreciate wine. And this from a guy who rarely drinks a bottle north of ten bucks. It reminds me of drinking Boone’s Farm wine in college and that’s a real bad thing.
