The Barefoot Wine Sweet Red is a mystery. What is a Sweet Red and why does it exist? As part of our goal to drink every wine Barefoot makes, we set out to answer not only these questions but more. In the interest of science, we assembled a tasting panel, went to the grocery store, and plopped down $7 on this enigma of a wine. With that covered, we got to tasting.
Barefoot recommends that you drink the Sweet Red chilled. If nothing else, we are good at following directions. After getting this out of the fridge, the most common thing we heard from the tasting panel was that this reminded them of fruit punch. Unfortunately, they did not mean that as a compliment.
This is a wine that does not really pair with anything nor does it really merit drinking. We cannot recommend that you give it a try. For your $7, you can get a much better wine, even from Barefoot Wines.
