Really nice, smooth flavor. I know everyone seems to love balsamic vinegar but I frankly can't stand it. Too overpowering. This, however, has lovely mild flavor yet you still know it's a wine vinegar. The taste is there but not tooooo strong. Great in salads, but I also sometimes use it when making my homemade mayo. More than worth the $$$. I've used other more expensive brands but keep coming back to this. Frankly, no more trying other brands. This is a keeper. I see it's on sale right now so even though I got one less than a month ago, I'm going to stock 2 more.
