"Wine Country" offers Netflix subscribers an excuse to stay in, uncork, and toast a comedian who's taking the next step in her career.

Despite having only one character trait apiece, the cast each slip into their semi-fictionalised roles as comfortably as a trusty longline cardigan. If only there were a bit of edge on show.

The scripted lines rarely zing, sing or sting (some seem improvised), but when the performers fall down or screw up their faces, you get to watch them fill in their characters with something like real feeling...

Wine Country is scrappy and, at times, misjudged but it's also very, very funny with a cast of women whose collective charm makes the patchier moments forgivable.

Star Amy Poehler's directing debut about six female friends on a weekend break in Napa trips up on its journey from silly to soul-searching. No matter. Poehler seems to think that the pleasure of their company is enough. She's right.

"Wine Country" is quaffable enough. If pressed to supply my own tasting notes, I might describe the blend as unwieldy but not unpleasant, sometimes acid to the point of bitterness (the tartest lines go to Amy Poehler, who also directed).

There are hints of a complex varietal in the Napa-set lark, but mainly it's a fizzy blend of dependable ingredients: seasoned comedy talents and an episodic story that, despite glimmers of anarchy, sticks to a reassuring comfort zone.
