I bought these when they were on sale here a month or so ago, and have really enjoyed them. The cabernet flavor is subtle and not overpowering and some picky eaters I've made it for have even liked it. Plus it's pretty darn unique. Really good with whatever red sauce you choose, and also comes with a really good recipe to cook with tomatoes, cheese, basil, olive oil, etc that's worth trying. Definitely worth the money IMO. I bought qty 3 of these 4 packs and have made it 3 or 4 times so far, all with very good results. If you don't mind paying a bit extra for pasta you can get cheap at the store for $1-2, then I'd highly recommend this.
