    We are typical Merlot connoisseurs, but this was refreshing. The rose petals and grapefruit taste was fresh and new.

    I'm not a lover of wine that leans to the sweeter side but it was fine with a fruit salad.

    This would be a great "summer wine"...fruity and light, paired it with Tilapia and risotto for a delightful dinner.

    This was quite possibly the worst wine I have ever sipped! After a taste, my husband and I put it aside and wondered if it would be possible to use for cooking. The bottle wasn't , it was simply too sweet to enjoy. This wine was a major dissappointment!! This quality of wine is reason to hesitate in joining a club with "mystery" selections sent monthly!

    Had some guests over and served this wine with assorted fresh fruits, cheeses and crackers. Lovely bouquet. Sugar:acidity well balanced. Medium body. Pleasant sweet fruit ester notes with slight greenness and a hint of floral. Nice finish. Perfect complement to the hors d'oeuvres. Our guests raved about it.

    I am sorry to say, again, that I did not like this wine either. It tasted very cheap. Carbonated (box wine)Honestly I am not sure if I want to order again without knowing what I am ordering.

    OK, I don't get around to rating very many of the always excellent wines I enjoy as an ACWC member, but the real "gems" deserve recognition. The 2007 Aurelia Symphony is one of those! (Can I get more)?
