The Relax Cool Red is not as grapey as many light red wines can be, but it is nicely fruity. A medium-to-full bodied red wine, it's not too sweet not too dry which should mean that you could pair it with almost anything, but in practice it seems to mean that it only makes an average pairing at best with most foods. The most positive aspect may be the lively acidity. It's simple rather than complex and would probably be best drinking chilled on its own.

Relax Cool Red Tasting Notes & Review

Color & Clarity
Although it's considered a lighter red wine, the color of the Relax Cool Red is quite dark — not a bright purple-red, but more a deep purple-ruby. It has the look of a higher tannin wine than what you'll really be drinking.

Nose
The aroma intensity of the Relax Cool Red is quite weak. There are hints of fruit, but only hints.

Palate
The Relax Cool Red is not as grapey as many light red wines can be, but it is nicely fruity. A medium-to-full bodied red wine, it's not too sweet not too dry which should mean that you could pair it with almost anything, but in practice it seems to mean that it only makes an average pairing at best with most foods. The most positive aspect may be the lively acidity. It's simple rather than complex and would probably be best drinking chilled on its own.

Food Pairing with Relax Cool Red
  • Steak: This is an acceptable pairing — nothing spectacular or remarkable, but it's a serviceable combination.
  • Salad with Ranch Dressing: Relax Cool Red becomes a bit drier with ranch dressing.

Relax Cool Red

Relax Cool Red goes with just about anything, but only because it doesn't really conflict with anything. Unfortunately, it doesn't really enhance the dining experience either. It might work at a party where you need a mild red wine that everyone can probably agree on, but that's about it.
