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.

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.

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.
