I am officially done and sick of sweet wine. It was really great for a while, being able to drink it like juice, but in the end, you aren’t really drinking wine. Its a sad cop-out.
sweet wine is now a pussy drink, in my book.
we are back to the dark and soulful, and we are lovin it.
especially when it comes in the form of a wine with a 13.5% alcohol content. This was a night to be drunk, and goodness knows, the mission was accomplished.
Now, I found this 2009 Redwood Creek Malbec at my local Food4less and RiteAid for just about 5 bucks a pop, however, looking online has shown it to be around 7. Really though, 2 dollars isnt THAT big of a difference.
Of course, you COULD spend the 2 dollars on four jack in the box tacos, but that comes later, accompanying and satiating the drunchies. and thats besides the point.
anyway, onwards and upwards.
Malbec grapes are generally associated with Argentinean wines, which is why it’s so surprising to find a norcal (northern california, duh) wine that uses these grapes. It usually produces a full-bodied wine thats a dark, dark red.
It looks so serious, you know this shit means business.
So, it doesnt have a lot of awards to it’s name, but it did win a silver medal in the malbec catagory in the INDIE international wine competition…
…if that means anything to you…
Impress a chick with this deep, romantic (bleh) red.
Or impress your man with your superb drinking abilities as you down this wine.
Either way, it’s a win win situation, and it involves someone being hammered.
On another note, we’re closing in on 300 followers! (when did this happen?)
and it’s just about the month and a half anniversary of my first post on carlo rossi (how exciting)
UP NEXT, a special on box wine: what to avoid (which is most of them), and the best balance between alcohol content and taste!
You know you’re excited.
