This week, I’m linking up with Kelly at Petite Ramblings for her monthly wine review! I came across her blog a few weeks ago and and became in instant follower. It’s strange, but being a mere five footer myself, I’ve always felt a sort of instant attraction to other minis who are also looking up at the world. And an avid wine drinker too? You mean you’re asking me to drink more wine? Well twist my arm.... I suppose I may participate.
Honestly, I’m a huge wine drinker anyway so this shouldn’t be hard. I went through a lot of it over the summer and probably have a glass on most nights during the school week as well. I don’t know much about it (a $10 bottle tastes the same as a $50 bottle to me), but I enjoy it all the same.
My favorite? Black Box Cabernet Sauvignon. Forgive me if boxed wine was not what you had in mind for this link up, but I’m serious. This stuff is no Franzia. It’s a delicious, smooth, dry but not too dry concoction that goes down way too easily. When I sit down with a glass of this stuff, it usually turns into 2 or 3 glasses. Be warned.
In fact, when the fiance and I were building our dry bar earlier this year, we had special spaces made for our black boxes since that is honestly what we drink most of the time. He sticks to the red. I keep a box of white too because I like both. (Pinot Grigio is currently stocked. Also delicious.)
Also this month we popped what I thought was a fantastic bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. Root: 1. I can’t put my finger on what it was, but it definitely made me stop and say “Wow! That is really good!”. Great description, I know. I’m not even sure how much it cost since he bought it, but I can assure you it was no more than $20.
Finally, Zardetto Prosecco. My girlfriends and I drank this one the first time I saw them after I got engaged. It was a celebration. This one had a "Z" on the bottle (for my fiances first name) and that is why I picked it. I thought it was great, but then again, I rarely ever drink champagne so I probably wouldn't know. The worker at the counter said it was really good though!
