Oh god, its like drinking the desert - it's so dry!

Oh god, its like drinking the desert – it’s so dry!

Review: So, if you haven’t caught on yet, this wine is freaking DRY! I mean, it’s O.K. overall for any average wine but god, it just makes you thirsty for water somehow. This one was a definite impulse buy but I guess it was worth it. It has a decent flavor, it was slightly bitter but I have no idea what it tastes like with food so don’t ask. I guess buy this if you’ve run out of wines to try, which is pretty much impossible…but you know what I mean.

0.0 ANOTHER MOSCATO?! NO WAY!

Review: Man, this one got me drunk faster than I could say when. I loved it. I will admit though, it was bitter as hell. I mean, I’ve had some bitter wines before but this one took the cake. I finished this whole bottle in one evening, and as the night went on, the bitterness slowly subsided which was a relief. I didn’t have much food with this wine, so I couldn’t say what kind of foods it would go good with. But if you like my other reviews, and if you wanna get drunk, this one is the one for you!

A Dastardly Night of Threes: FlipFlop-Cabernet Sauvignon

Flip Flop Cabernet Sauvignon

Literally right in the middle…

Review: I heard from a friend that FlipFlop is a great brand of wine to try, so I took the plunge and I got this one and two others. (Those reviews will come later this week!) But I have to admit that this Cabernet Sauvignon was much better than the one from Sutter Home for sure. I actually finished off my night by drinking half of this bad boy and I was quite pleased. I will admit that it is slightly earthy and robust but the flavor was tolerable and I was able to drink it without difficulty. If you have run out of different wines to try, this one could be a next possible choice. But just be forewarned, it is a little hard to handle at first but in the end you can drink it and that is all that matters.

Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc California – Oh so bitter…

Short And Quick Review: It is drinkable, but awfully bitter x.x

Very bitter but hits the spot!

Very bitter but hits the spot!

Review: After having the Sutter Home – Merlot, I needed something that would possibly taste better, so I gave the Sauvignon Blanc California a try. I was kind of disappointed because it was just so bitter. It is pretty darn easy to drink with Chinese food I found out, and the taste isn’t too horribly bad, it’s just very strong. I gave it a decent try but it really is hard to drink if you just want to enjoy a nice wine. If you want to get a nice buzz with an O.K. tasting wine this is the one for you.

I gotta say that at first I totally thought this was a Reisling or a Moscato...way wrong

Review: So, not much to say about this wine, other than I am losing faith in the Cupcake Vineyards brand. =/ This is the first chardonnay I have ever tried, and I have to say that it’s pretty much…meh. I mean, this wine is like a sweet strong punch to the face. The taste is slightly sweet but definitely bitter, and doesn’t resemble Angel Food cake in the slightest. At least with the Red Velvet wine I had tried its damndest to be a pastry. But I digress, the wine tasted a lot better after I added some Triple Sec that I had handy and boom! It tasted just like sweet water! What could go wrong?! I mean, I even had this wine with Pizza! The delicious pizza had no effect on the taste, and I doubt I will buy this wine again in the future. This is probably an acquired taste, but even a moderate wine drinker would probably be able to handle this wine. They wouldn’t like it, but they wouldn’t pour it out either.

Pretty darn good wine overall, very very bubbly.

T.T Still being in the Wine 101 class, this took me a while to get off. I'm not the brightest light on the Christmas Tree just F.Y.I.

Review: I probably would have enjoyed this wine more if I could have gotten to it sooner. Seeing as how I just started drinking wine, I have never seen a cork mechanism like the one pictured above so I had to Google how to open the darn thing. (I’m Not Bright But I Eventually Got It =/ HaHa) The wine was actually really carbonated and was bubbly the entire time I was enjoying it. The taste was sweet and bitter but it was still good. I wouldn’t recommend it to beginner wine drinkers because it just doesn’t hit the spot right away like the other wines I have tried. You could probably get better for cheaper.
