I am sooooo in love with Rayun Chardonnay, or I used to be. It seems that something that was so good just started to drop in quality. However, while at Canal's on Route 70, I decided to to try the Carmenere by them which I never saw before.

The review on the tag underneath the bottle [on the shelf] made it look good, and I chose to have this with a freshly made New York Strip steak. Unfortunately, this wine came off very weak and watery. You can tell that this wine could have potential, but it seems too diluted to even be something that can be taken half seriously. At best, I can taste cherry and the slightest hint of cocoa, but I get a lot of just plain 'water.'

What more can be said?
