**+ $ Carlo Rossi Burgundy, CA - Review and Rating

Review: The Carlo Rossi Burgundy is one of those practically free wines, the sort of wine I review from time to time in order to "take one for the team". It comes in 1.5, 3 and 4 litre bottles, averaging about $3 or so per 750 ml equivalent when you purchase the larger bottles. Jug wine for sure - and the jug bottles are helpful for my own winemaking activity.

So, not coming at this with high expectations, let's see what we've got: In the glass, the Rossi Burgundy is medium red, going lighter a good distance from the edge. Aromas are shy, fresh ripe muddled cherry and raspberry fruit. The taste is consistent, bringing a sweet, round middle of the same fruits, touched by almost no acids or tannins. Finishes clean, with no cloying sweetness.

Two stars out of five, with a plus for its easy approachability.
