Ok, so, before you freak out, I just wanna explain what I mean. Tonight, for the first time in way too long, I had a glass of wine. Let's just say I stayed away from wine in general because my schedule didn't really allow for me to indulge. In any case, tonight I cracked open … Continue reading My tongue has gone blind
Ok, so, first of all (you know it's about to be some shit when you stat with "first of all," but anyway), I generally stay *very far* away from "flavored" wines of ANY TYPE. However, I happened upon a chocolate wine some years ago that looked like a yoohoo so I thought that's what I … Continue reading I guess it’s the thought that counts..right?
So, every now and then I run into a bottle that completely underwhelms me. This was one of them. Don't get me wrong, great color, aromas of pineapple, bright and citrus notes on the palate; if you're into that sort of thing, you'll love this one. I'm finding Sauvignon Blancs to be hit or miss … Continue reading Boringly Zesty
Mmmm full bodied white wines FTW!!! This creamy wonder came from Australia, via Direct Cellars. From the time I popped the bottle, the aroma was quite strong. The bouquet was hard to nail down, but it was tingly on the tongue and velvety smooth. I could definitely taste the alcohol, and citrus like flavors. I'd … Continue reading A very likeable Chardonnay
It was a Riesling, from Germany via Wine Insiders. Soft and full bodied on the tongue, floral aromas hinted at the slight sweetness of this very pale, and quite unassuming white. Apple yumminess came thru with a sweetness that reminded my friend of Moscato. Definitely on my list of faces!
Oh, what a delight! This Cava from Wine Insiders is gonna be hard to beat! Beautiful, tiny bubbles that just don't stop, floral fruity aromas, and a taste that took me FOREVER to figure out. The only way to describe it was cherry croissant. Yea, I know. I guess the only way to understand … Continue reading Bring on the bubbles!
What a romantic, mysterious name for an equally romantic and mysterious wine. A VINEBOX treat. Deeply red, nearly opaque, I caught cherry/raspberry on the aroma, but couldn't nail down anything specific on the palate. Maybe my lack of experience, maybe I'm having an off night, but I got smooth fruit. Not too tart, and full … Continue reading Negroamaro
Yet another rose, and this time, its from a local spot named Bed-Vyne! I popped the cork on this baby and swirled it in my glass. Very faint floral aromas, with bright strawberry peeking through. On the tongue, it was crisp, and clean, but the finish left something to be desired. I want to say … Continue reading BedVyne Cotes de Provence
I rated this one ⭐⭐⭐/5. Once upon a VINEBOX, I read the info cards and one told a tale of rose petals and fresh menthol. Completely puzzled, I unscrewed the cap and took a whiff. Sure enough, the beautiful smell of rose filled my nostrils. Always the classy lady, I poured this dark red vial … Continue reading A beautiful bouquet…
Yes, I know, the glass defeats the purpose, but hear me out... Soooooo I was excited for this canned wine. Single servings are my best friend since I tend to drink alone. Anywho, this three pack from my very first Winc box was my first order of business. I cracked one open, and noticed it … Continue reading Ruza
