I love a gimmick, and a fish shaped wine bottle is a must have.

I had a feeling the wine inside wouldn't be too good, otherwise it wouldn't need a fish shaped bottle to sell it.

Unfortunately I was right.

It had a pale, muddy, browny red colour, with a spicy earthy smell.
On the palate it was dry, earthy and almost tasted off and stale. It was light bodied and the earthy taste stuck around for a while (a bit too long).

Overall, not good, and one to avoid (unless you want the fish bottle!)
