Why do I keep buying this stuff? Nice nose but thin and watery, like a six-month-old Beaujolais Nouveau. With her cabbage lasagna. 13% alc/vol and $9.99, at least twice what it's worth. Bah!

We've had a couple of '05s that were just fine. See Dananne's post below.

The problem may have been the source of this bottle. No entry in CT so was probably non-standard, maybe a discounter I visit infrequently. It wasn't cooked, just insipid. Will stick to reliable sources for that label.
