    I just bought a bottle of this particular wine this evening for my Christmas dinner, which I will be cooking on Friday because that's when I get my next day off. Anyway, was just wondering if this is a good wine or not ??, I only paid $6.26 for the bottle.

    Hard to tell -- where's it from, and when, and what grapes are in it, etc etc.

    The only way to know if it's any good TO YOU is to open and taste it. If you like it, it's good; if you don't but others do, it's good, just not to you; if no one likes it, well, it still might be good, but not to you and your friends/family. In other words, it's all very, very subjective.

    But I hope you like it, and have a lovely holiday dinner. :D

    I broke it open on New years day instead of Christmas, and it is a very good wine, has a very smooth flavour, and it doesn't have the sort "alcohol burn" that most cheap wines do. It's from a vintner in Niagra Falls.
