If you want to read what a more experienced wine connoisseur thinks about wine, my blog is definitely not the place to be.
But you should definitely check out Good Wine Under $20 and read the opinions of someone who might actually know what they're talking about. Me? I make up words. I talk about my kids driving me crazy. Or will in the future. I use commas and parentheses and all types of punctuation wrong. But at least I know what I like and can talk about it here. :) Oh yes and I use smileys far too often. That's what I like about my own blog. I can do what I dang well please. :) See? There I go again. Sorry. Sorta. Maybe not. The End.
Chateau O'Brien at Northpoint - Northpoint Red - 2006
Our Northpoint Red is blended with Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdo.
Now since I have only tried 2 of these above wines, I can't really be a fair judge I don't guess. I am definitely looking forward to doing some wine tastings here soon. The fall in this area is a good time to find festivals and wine tastings.
Woohoo, mama can't wait! Overall verdict on this one? Not my favorite. Probably would be good with a steak or some pasta but not just one to drink on its own in my opinion.
Lucky Duck - Cabernet Sauvignon - Chile
Lucky you! We searched the gobe to create a collection of authentic,
great tasting international wines, with layers of flavor. Rich cherry and
fruity blackberry notes. Enjoy Lucky Duck alone or paired with red meats
We did a side by side comparison with another bottle of red wine I had left from using up the Christmas gift card from Christmas (see the Grey Ghost post). That was a fun experiment.

Label notes: This Gray Ghost vidal Blanc is crisp and fruity with
distinctive characteristics of citris and lemon. The exceptionally long
finish makes this an excellent selection with poultry and seafood as well as
light, delicate cheeses.

P.S. If you're a reader of the CraftyLilDevil blog....I promise I'll update that sometime this weekend. Unpacking from the trip, spending some long overdue time with my honey and doing homework are among the other things on my "to do" list. Be patient with me! :)
