$3 Wal Mart Wine

In the Dallas news there is an article showing the results of an informal taste test for Walmart's $2.97 bottles of Oak Leaf wine.  I have not tasted the wine and don't intend to anytime soon.  If you do read the article, and I hope you do, be sure to read all the way through including the follow ups on who makes the wine, the other brands they make, and then the scores and comments.  The comment about the alcohol levels being moderate makes me think the wines could be a touch sweet, and that makes sense if you want to appeal to a large group.  Look at Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio and Kendall Jackson Chardonnay.  Both of these are very popular and on the sweet side.  Why do all these BLC (Big Liquor Company) brands come up with names using "leaf" in them? - Salamanzar
