Save Water, Drink Wine!

Let me start off by saying this was NOT one of my wine choices! Nor was it suggested to me!

Last week, I was having a bad week and I really wanted to drink.

Now, since I’ve started this blog, every bottle I have selected, I do research behind it beforehand. I want to know what I’m getting myself into. I try and find what food goes well with it and what my taste buds will experience. I am literally trying to create the perfect experience for my palette.

Well, I didn’t’ have time to do research, grocery shop, and cooking wasn’t an option for me. Especially not this particular day. I wasn’t in the mood to spend too much money, so I literally grabbed a $5 bottle of wine off the shelf and proceeded to check out.

My wife was already at home, heating up whatever leftovers we had that night, and I was ready to eat and drink!

Let me say this, my $5 was well spent!

When they said “Sweet Red” on the bottle, baby they were not playing! This wine was amazing! Not overwhelmingly sweet, but just the right amount. It had a strong fruity taste and smelled amazing! It was definitely enjoyable with my food (which I cannot remember what I was eating to save my life), and definitely great as a sipper.

I had a glass a few days later and was still satisfied!

So, of course I did my research. This wine is made with two different grapes, Merlot and Zinfandel. Both grapes are known to have a really fruity taste, and even though it’s a red wine, it has very low tannin levels. This is also a wine recommended for people, like me, who are trying red wines for the first time.

This wine is definitely 5 out of 5 on my scale!  I would recommend this dining alone, or at a social gathering. It’s best paired with beef, lamb, and deer (if you’re into that kind of thing)!

Can you guys believe it’s been a month? I am so excited and still slightly shocked that I have been doing this, this long! Thank you guys so much for the support and make sure to keep those recommendations coming!
