Last year we found a cheap red blend that we liked that was on the sweet side and had a very jammy taste, all for $5. Unfortunately, no one else seemed to like it, as it's been discontinued (Flying Heart from Trader Joe's). Looking for something with that sort of flavor profile, preferably less than $10.
I'd like to get my dad a nice bottle of red wine to drink with Christmas dinner. I'm thinking a nice table wine that he maybe hasn't tried before. His favorites are Masi's Campofiorin and the Cesari Mara. In the past I've splurged on some nice Amarone's and Barolo's but I'm thinking I'd like to do something in the $10-$20 range. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Someone gave me a bottle of homemade red wine. It was filled right to the top of a screw-top bottle. It's a little fizzy, and light in colour (not as light as a rosé- just not as deeply coloured as most red wines I'm used to). I had a little sip and it doesn't taste too bad. Why is it fizzy? More importantly, should I drink it?
Moved into a new house with light carpet everywhere. I need to become a friggin Jedi master at cleaning up stains. Hope me. [more inside]
I find that French red wine has a very distinctive body and aftertaste. Is this truly specific to French wine, or have I not found some equivalents elsewhere in the world? [more inside]
I love red wine. However, after a few sips. it coats the bottom portion of my front teeth with a thick, dark, blackish film... not too attractive. How can I prevent this from happening. [more inside]
