So, I have been hearing that a glass of red wine after dinner is good for health. Also, I like drinking wine but,till now, I have mostly been limited to a glass or so at restaurants. So, I am a novice about wines and don't know much about good wineries or sources. I looked up review sites, but I am not sure which review sites are trustworthy. What would be a good red wine you recommend? [more inside]
On Friday, I rented my first-ever tuxedo for a black-tie wedding. On Saturday, I went to said wedding. On Sunday, I noticed that there's somehow red wine stains on the tuxedo shirt, despite not drinking red wine and not having stains on any other part of the tuxedo. On Monday, I'm supposed to return the tuxedo. Help? [more inside]
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.
