if you're new to wine!
Now, I for one am a fan of dry reds, and more dry wines as opposed to sweet, but my lady loves sweet wine, and she LOVES Eagle Crest Vineyards' concord wine - she thinks it's the bees knees. I asked her to write a little snippet so I could give you all a slightly different perspective and here's what she said:
Most of you had grape juice growing up: dark purple, kind of tart, very sweet, and definitively grape.
wine is grape juice for grown-ups. It’s made from the same type of grape as your typical grape juice and aside from the alcoholic notes, the taste is not too different. Most wine enthusiasts don’t think very highly of concord wines; indeed, many people in Europe say that concord wines aren't even considered to be true wine. Being a fox grape enthusiast myself, I would not say that a concord is a connoisseur’s wine, but it’s great for someone who is just getting to know wine, doesn’t think they like wine, or just wants to enjoy something sweet and tasty.

As concords go, Eagle Crest’s offering is top notch. The grape note is a pure, smack-you-in-the-face flavor, and the alcohol note is more of an undertone. If you remember that Welch’s grape juice commercial from a million years ago where the woman talks about rolling the juice around on her tongue, this makes you want to do just that. Drink this concord cool but not ice cold to allow your taste buds to explore the flavor. It’s comparative candy as wines go, so if that’s what you like, this does not disappoint. Careful, though; it’s still wine!
