Review of Cocobon Red Blend California-Value Beyond Price
First, let me state that I'm not a wine snob. This means I don't judge the quality and value of the wine based on its prices. As a matter of fact, if you have a cheaper priced wine with exceptional value it therefore has much more value for me!
Yet that unfortunately is not the opinion of many "wine experts". Lots fall into the halo effect category. Price becomes falsely associated with value and taste. The brain plays a trick!

Good wine is good wine regardless of the price and that is what Cocobon offers. It is a full-bodied wine that tastes fruity, wet with a balance aftertaste. I suspect there is some vanilla and cherry in there somewhere. It is choice you would be safe putting on the table.
The wine is smooth so it would likely go with some chicken and lightly seasoned meat. While it is full-bodied, I don't see it as heavy so I wouldn't put it with very high spices like Mediterranean food. It works for most meals that Americans are accustomed with.
I looked up their winery and thought I might want to share. I rank them high even though I wasn't paid for the review or know anyone at the company at the time of writing this. Its just an opinion.
