Recently on a trip to Whole Foods, I noticed that there is a plethora of cheap selections in an assortment of varietals and labels.
Why didn't I notice this a month ago? As some of you know I joined weight watchers and even though nothing is off limits (the exact reason I love WW) a glass of wine
as I like it served, to the tippy top is A LOT of points. So I will no longer (well till I drop a considerable amount of weight) be reviewing cheap wine. For the next couple of months it's going to be all cocktails and light beer. You didn't think I was gonna say sobriety did you?
Here is my last wine review until I'm five pounds from lifetime.
This 4.99 Cabernet was flavorful. I could taste the sweet berries and it's rich earthiness. Now it is not going be mistaken for a pricey bottle, but if paired with a medium cooked new york strip steak it could pass in my humble opinion for a decent bottle of wine.
I will definitely buy and drink this again, but not without buying a steak to go with it.
P.S. If you have any good suggestions for light beers I should try, Please send them my way.
