I find it decent enough, and they are not the only winery to use the Central Valley grapes, which, as Mike mentioned, are producing a great deal of quality produce. I loved Mirassou wines; are they still operating out of the San Jose area?
I also applaud them for producing a reasonably drinkable red that is accessible price-wise to a wide swath of consumers…I always found it strange that drinkable wine (we are not talking high quality necessarily here) could always be found at very reasonable prices in grocery stores and establishments in France, Italy, Spain, some countries in Latin America, etc. We grow a ton of wine grapes here in the US; I always wondered why we couldn’t do what these countries have done. Wine does not have to be relegated to connoisseurs with big bank accounts, and it can be considered a regular accompaniment to meals for the average citizen.
Now, if we could just get restaurants to stop considering wine as a profit center[:D], and offer some of these really inexpensive wines without a massive mark-up in price as they do in France, Italy, and Spain, then I will be happy!
