Favorite Brand of Wine
My first rose, and probably not the best Rose to start off my habit with, but none the less, this sucked bad. haha.
Nothing Evokes the joy of warm weather better than the luminescent color and vibrant flavors of Borsao Rose’. Abundant aromas of warm sun drenched strawberries fill your glass. Delicate sweet baking spices accentuate the fruity flavors. Enjoy this wine slightly chilled with your favorite foods and thoughts of summertime fun.
Not even worth rating. haha.
Robert Mondavi…you know what’s up. This 2006 Merlot is a great tasting one, I let it decant for about 20 minutes then started on it, very tasty with good notes.
Aromas of ripe wild berries carry hints of bay leaf, forest floor and cedar. Fleshy blueberry and blackberry flavors lay atop a skeleton of well-structured tannins. A silky wine that envelops the mouth and ends with a lengthy finish.

This one was drunk at the Republic of Texas Bar & Grill
Is a rare pinot gris, which you can only find in restaurants, if they still have it in stock, and was one of the BEST Pinot Gris I’ve ever tasted. I’ve tried to find more to buy, but it’s impossible. I couldn’t even find a picture of the bottle online!!
..the nose is intense lemon (almost Pledge like)…it is also more serious on the palate with quince, lemon and orange zest…it is round in the mouth with an oily texture but the acidity pokes through..no grassiness…quite pleasingIt was very tasty and tangy, amazing.
Location: Burgenland, Austria
Had this one for Valentines Day @ the Vietnam Restaurant, went perfectly.
I’ve been getting into Moscato’s lately, they taste amazing. It’s a half bottle, so only fills 2 glasses, but it’s all you need.
Typical are the hints of citrus fruit, lime blossom and minerals; its freshness on the palate, fragrance and well-balanced spirituousness make it a very elegant wine.
Location: Italy (Piedmont Region)
Xmas time one… pretty good.
Very pale straw yellow and fine, persistent perlage. The aroma is fruity and flowery with hints of ripe golden apple and small mountain flowers. The dry, fresh and flavoursome sensation on the palate is followed by a fruity and harmonious aftertaste.
This was a wine we picked up to try, I wasn’t to much for Rieslings because there usually really sweet, but this one was good. Not to good, but good. lol. This was the first wine I’ve drank from Oregon. I’ll be adding a “Types of Grapes” section soon!
Harvest Select Riesling is made in a slightly sweeter style than our “Columbia Valley Riesling” but still shows the elements of classic Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling. It offers beautiful crisp Washington Riesling character with rich flavors of ripe pears and peaches. The fresh fruit and decadent character is balanced with crisp acidity to keep the wine in harmony. This is a perfect patio sipping wine or would be a great match with Thai food.

I don’t usually do beers on here, but I decided I’ll start adding the random beers I don’t usually drink. I bought a 6 pack sampler of random beers from the grocery store.
So this is the first one I’ve tried, it’s called Grolsch Premium Lager, it’s from Holland. It tastes just like a Heineken so yeah, there it is.
I saw my first Prosecco at HEB that was on special and I tried it, and now I think Prosecco is pretty elite. This one is buy the Santa Margherita Estate, which also produces the pinot grigio I reviewed, this one was actually good.
Santa Margherita Prosecco Brut – Delicate and dry with long-lasting, concentrated bubbles and fresh aromas of fruit. Up-front floral flavors are followed by a mixture of lychee and lemoon citrus.
Score: 91 for Sparkling
