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.

Mad Dog 20/20 - Blue Raspberry

This is not wine this is pure alcohol…

Review: First off, I have to say that it is a definite chore just to drink this “wine“…It is pungent with the smell of alcohol, tastes like pure vodka, and looks like a melted blue Slurpee.  It isn’t Red Velvet horrible, it just really tastes like alcohol, and that is not what I was looking forward to. Come to think of it, most wine actually tastes a lot better than harder liquor. This drink doesn’t get the title of “wine” in my book at all. As you swallow this blue concoction, the initial taste is refreshing and then the aftertaste is something you wish you could have avoided. Even with my cup half full, I fear I can’t stomach the rest of whats left…we’ll see. I am just forewarning you, this wine is not for beginners. Drink at your own risk.

Sutter Home - White Zinfadel

It took a bit, but this wine is drinkable…barely.

Review: Friday night was when it all started, I figured I would try my wine like I normally would and everything would be hunky dory. I was definitely wrong. This wine was first on the agenda and to my dismay I found out rather quickly that it was really bitter and dry. It is drinkable mind you, but just barely…I do have to say that if you want to get drunk though, this wine is the one for you! Only two of these baby bottles literally put me under the table which really surprised me. I would recommend this wine to people who have already had a plethora of wines under their belt because this one is not for the feint of heart. Overall, it didn’t taste so bad that I couldn’t drink it but it was really close.

A Dastardly Night of Threes: FlipFlop-Cabernet Sauvignon

Short And Quick Review: Surprisingly O.K. versus the one I just tried prior

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.

EH, could have been better. =/

EH, could have been better. =/

Review: Why Red Wine? WHY?! Overall this wine was rough to swallow, literally. It has a very strong flavor of…well…it’s hard to describe. On OneStopWineShop.com it is described with a dark cherry taste but I just can’t taste it!  I admit that the wine itself does go down smooth, but the taste is a little overwhelming for a wine beginner like myself. Even though I didn’t like it, there’s a chance you might. I bet that it would go good with some Italian or Chinese food but by itself, I can’t really appreciate the flavor it’s trying to accomplish. If it had a more distinct or sweet flavor, it probably would have gotten a higher rating. But for now, 1/5 it is!
