This is a NJ wine. It has no vintage, which I don't quite understand, but the label says "Table Wine." I'd say it is closer to a dessert wine or a Sangria because it is very sweet. Of course that makes me happy. Just a shade deeper than a white zin with a lovely light red hue. I really loved it, because it was very close to a Sangria in taste. I'll be back to the corner store for some more of this. Great summer wine. I think it was about $12.

Georgie,

"Table wine" does not mean what you think it means.

In U.S. regulations, the two words simply mean that the alcohol by volume falls between 8% and 14%, or close to those numbers.

Not sure if it is still the case, but by using those two words, a winery did not have to print the alcohol by volume percentage on the label.
