This wine isn't really all that bad. Yes, it's thin and has very little nose. On the palate it has a pronounced capsicum character, something not unknown to Cabernet (Sauvignon and Franc). It's relatively smooth and inoffensive, but for Pete's sake - £9.99? I didn't pay that obviously, but still...I don't know why I'm surprised, we see this time and time again, we know that it's never worth the full price, and usually not worth the sale price.
Hopefully I've tried this so you don't have to. Again, it's not terrible. If it were £3 or £4 I'd say it was worth the money.
