Admittedly, I have not cracked open the bottle yet, but I had an opportunity to sample some of these wines before buying this Cabernet. I was shocked at how closely it mimicked my favorite varietal: I was amazed that it tasted authentically “wine-like.” It didn’t have the sweet artificial or heavy fruity overtones that permeate other non-alcoholic wine offerings, and I was impressed!
The reason we haven’t opened the bottle yet, is that we are saving it for Thanksgiving: I bought this as a gift for my son, a recovering alcoholic (9+ years sober) and wonderful human being. He has often expressed discomfort at family gatherings: he loves our relatives, but many of them work for industries involved in alcohol manufacturing and marketing, and most imbibe, as well. I picked this up while on vacation in North Carolina on the off-chance it would help him, and was surprised at how grateful he was for it! He is actually looking forward to our Thanksgiving gathering and I thank you for that!
