So, I am far from a wine connoisseur, but a girl's gotta start somewhere, right? I've been getting tired of my same old "go-to" value wines so this year I am going to try some new wines each month and let you know what I think. I'll confess that the first wine I tried I bought for the name and the label. I'm a sucker for cute marketing. The Beach House white wine is from South Africa. It was a value at only $12.99/bottle. I thought this wine was good, but not great. It has a nice citrus flavor, but I didn't love it.
The second wine I tried was Wizards Cranberry, which is from Les Trois Emme winery in western Massachusetts. I chose this wine because it's local and sounded appealing. It's their Cayuga White that has cranberry flavoring added to it. At first taste I thought it was pretty tart and the tartness seemed a bit overwhelming. I couldn't finish my glass and was very disappointed. This wine too, was only $12.99/bottle and if you like a really tart wine, then you'd probably like this.
So, this month's selections were a bust, but I have high hopes for next month!
