- I am not a big drinker. Seriously, my mom can drink me under the table. Booze just doesn't really do it for me a lot of the time and all this crap about beer being an acquired taste is BS. I don't want to have to acquire a taste for anything. I either like it or I don't. However, a margarita or a glass of red wine is one of the finer things in life.
- I know nothing about wine. When I interned in Michigan for a summer I took a wine tasting class at a local restaurant. I sure did drink a lot of wine, but the parts about the notes and the fruit and the aging and all that are a little bit, um....fuzzy.
This week it was a bottle of Old Vine Zinfandel. For New Year's my lovely friend and former roommate, Morgan, brought over a bottle and I thought it was AWESOME! So I bought a bottle with a fun label:
Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin was a delicous bottle of wine. The smell was actually the first thing I noticed and for a wine amateur that says a lot. The smell of oak was very distinct and warm and made me want to dive right in. I thought the wine was great by itself after a long day at work but would pair really great with any kind of hearty meal, and the Gnarly Head website suggests ribs which I wholeheartedly agree with! So with 1 being totally gross and 5 meaning I would take the bottle to the face, this wine definitely gets 4 glasses from me!
Let me know in the comments what your favorite bottle is...I love recommendations!
