Fish Eye Sweet Red pours a dark, cherry red. It smells of sweet strawberries and raspberries. This carries over into the taste, with pronounced sweet raspberry and strawberry, and a hint of cranberry in the finish. The tannins are there, but really quite mild. Fish Eye Sweet Red is as you'd expect, sweet, but the flavors are much deeper than I was expecting. Typically sweet wines tend to be a bit thin, but this is a bordering on full-bodied which is refreshing to see from a sweet red, which is probably from the Shiraz base. Whatever it is, it works. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this!
Drink This: if you want a surprisingly fuller-bodied sweet red wine. I could see this being enjoyed by newbies to red wine, as well as veterans. It fills the gap between traditional dry reds and sweet, pink wines. And with a suggested retail of $7 a bottle, it's definitely worth a try.
Don't Drink This: if you're looking for a dry, oak bomb of a wine.
