So it really is all about moderation. One drink is equivalent to - 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of bear, and 1.5 ounces of hard liquor.
With all of the above in mind, I am a fan of wine. Especially this wine in particular:
This is a red wine from Sonoma, California. Might I add that it is a delicious red wine.
It's from their "Diamond Collections" - Claret. (Oh, and it's Black Label!) It is advertised as a wine with flavors of blueberry & espresso. (Which I didn't get.)
The blend is: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec, and 3% Cabernet Franc. The taste of Cab is definitely prevalent. (Obviously.)
It comes with a decoration of gold netting around it. Great presentation!
It's in the $15-$20 range. For my budget, it's not a "table top" wine to have every day. I could drink it every day since it is very "soft" and not too bold.
This is my "go to" wine to bring to a celebration or dinner party due to the unique style of the bottle (it definitely gets some people talking!) and the soft taste that even those who aren't a wine fan will enjoy. This is also a wine I'd like to have if I'm having a nice piece of steak for dinner!
Have you had the Claret before? If so, what'd you think?!
Sounds good! I'll have to give it a try :) And hey, I'm a fan of any study that says I should be drinking a little wine everyday :)ReplyDelete
I will have to try this!! Yes ONE glass of red wine a day is supposed to do your body well!!ReplyDelete
All the more reason not to feel guilty about a glass of wine after a tough day!ReplyDelete
I just can't get into it! I have tried different ones and I'm not a wine girl, I'm not much on alcohol at all. But I do like a mojito occasionally.ReplyDelete
Sounds really good.ReplyDelete
That's one of H's favorite wines, and is definitely yummy!ReplyDelete
Did you know that Francis Ford Coppola is Nicolas Cage's uncle? Fun fact of the day ;0)
