Relax Cool Red - Wine review

I know I just got done saying I'm not a big fan of red wine but that was before I tried Relax Cool Red. Unlike most red wine Relax Cool Red is meant to be served cool. It's also exceptionally smooth and easy to drink.

We first tried Relax Cool Red tonight and it was the perfect accompaniment to our steak dinner. A little sip between each bite of steak made the steak taste steakier (yes it's a word!) and the wine taste winier.

From the website: "Relax Cool Red offers wine lovers an approachable wine meant for enjoying rather than debating. This fruity, flavorful Beaujolais-type wine is a pleasant alternative to traditional reds."

Well, I don't know what Beaujolais means but I agree with the rest of it! Relax Cool Red is a nice red wine to try if you're not sure you like red wine. At about $9.99 a bottle it's a nice, affordable addition to a steak dinner or to an evening curled up in front of the fire.
