Only on Taco Bell's Canada website or in some locations in Ontario.

$25 Canadian or about $19 US

For $19/bottle it's either the best thing at Taco Bell or the most overpriced thing at Taco Bell.

I'd try it.

Sure why not. Any port in a storm.

Naturally this would be produced in 2020. Which means it will probably be a complete disaster.

At least it's an interesting concept - a "high brow" taco dinner from Taco Bell.

Except there's pretty much nothing left on the Taco Bell menu worth buying.

Taco Bell used to be one of my favorite places for cheap, fast, vegetarian food. My kids liked the shredded chicken burritos.

All the good stuff is gone.

2020 sucks.

I like the bean burritos. Always will. Shouldn't, can't explain it, but I do.

Product of Canada -- Where are the grapes grown? Every Upper Midwest wine I've tasted is huge on tannins. No bueno.

If it's a high tannin wine, just let it sit in your wine cellar a few years. They'll mellow nicely.
