|Ste Genevieve - Sweet Moscato|
November 27, 2010
Apparently the White Wine Wino likes Moscatos, so here is an offering from Ste Genevieve Winery that we tried recently. Both Winos agreed to rate it as "Good"! Given a choice between Ste Genevieve's Sweet Moscato and Barefoot Winery's Moscato, would go with Barefoot because of its sweeter taste!

Pinot Grigio from the Fish Eye Winery of Livermore, California. Have a slight disagreement on this one.... White Wine Wino says, "Don't buy it"! Red Wine Wino had no issues with it. Rating this one as "Neutral" since we cannot agree to buy it again or not.

A Red Wine that was tough to enjoy, even by two hardened Winos. Sold in the big bottles, we bought this one way back when the funds were low. Reinforced our "rule of thumb" to not buy wines in the big bottles unless we really, really, really like the wine. Both agreed to not buy this one again.... unless the funds get really low, NOT! Rating: "Bad".

A Chianti offered by Bell' Agio that we really liked. Compliments the favorite Italian meal of our Red Wine Wino: Linguine with Mussells sauteed in a spicy red sauce with Chicken Wings and Bread on the side. Got hooked on this meal when stationed overseas in Gaeta, Italy. Chianti gets a "Good" rating.

Zinfandel offered by Barefoot Winery that continues to justify our assumption - "wines from Barefoot are typically "Good" wines! Both Winos agreed to buy this one again. Slightly dry and with an alcohol content that makes for a decent "buzz".

Here is one to recall from the Macaroni Grill. The restaurant chain offers a great House Red. It is a Chianti that is offered by the bottle or the glass. Easily earned a "Good" rating as we order a glass or two or three with our meal! No picture but easy to remember, give this one a try next time you stop by a Macaroni Grill in your area.

Here is a Red that comes to us from a Texas Winery. Have been hit or miss on this one. Meaning the White Wine Wino likes the sweetness of this offering; the Red Wine Wino tolerates it. Would we purchase again? The White Wine Wino does so regularly, the Red Wine Wino does not. Going to rate this one a "Neutral" since we can't seem to agree....
