I am not a wine lover but love this mulled wine. The orange juice and aromatic flavor are just too good with the wine and cognac. In this holiday season, this is a perfect drink to have. On a cold day, you will enjoy this warm mulled wine for sure. Feeling really good sipping this warm when I had a cold last week. Also, felt like a kind of Karha drink (A drink made with a lot of herbs and spices for a home remedy for cold).
