Oh Hai! so once in a while I like to sip a glass of wine with dinner. My favs seem to be in the cabernet family. I also like a Pino Nior.
What amazes me is the flavor combinations, I'm looking over a list not to long ago and one bottle is boasting deep grap and berry flavors with the finish of tanned leather. WTF! Another had coffe bean and cigar as flavors. Who comes up with this?
I'm in that ^^^^^ wine club. A much better deal than buying at the store or especially restaurant, especially if you drink wine regularly. If you are buying wine at a restaurant, you are paying 3-4X what you would from a wine club or a place like BevMO. Its almost always cheaper to bring your own and pay the corkage (if its legal where you live). Even a pricey corkage like $15 is still cheaper than the markup.
Stopped drinking beer July 4th so this is more my style. Last one I had was Barefoot Moscato (cheap) and tasted nothing like any white wine or alcohol for that matter, just peachy. Have a bottle of Columbia-Crest Riesling lying around waiting to be drank sometime after the bulk, it's a mid-range. I prefer white wines, can't speak anything about reds. Currently unable to drink any due to drinking a gallon of milk a day and eating tons of ground beef + whey.
Terrazo is still one of the best whites I've tried, and about $8-9, harder for me to find. Barefoot Pinot Grigio was like poison hitting my palate. Frontera Sauvignon Blanc was indentical to champagne, must've sold me an old product(??) Anything Gallo Family is cheap, girly-therefore easy on the palate. That's all the names that are coming to my head right now, too many I've tried in a short period...
