I have been drinking Winking Owl wine from Aldi for about the past two years. it is amazing to get a wine this inexpensive that tastes so delicious. I have had the Cabernet Sauvignon, The Merlot, The Chardonnay and the Shiraz by Winking Owl. I would have to say, although I liked all the wines, The Shiraz is my favorite. It is a smooth, fullbodied California wine. It has an interesting texture, and is smooth on your palette. It has a taste of cherries and goes well with any type of food, particulary pastas. I really get a kickout of drinking this wine, because it costs so little and tastes so good. It is 12% alcohol per bottle and has an easy to remove cork. It is comparable to Trader joe's Charles Shaw or "Two Buck Chuck."
