Tino's Too Strawberry Margaritas

Had dinner at a Mexican Food Restaurant that we frequent.  Really like their entrees as well as their House Margaritas. This round went with the Strawberry Margarita!  Tasty....

Electra Moscato

Here is a light wine with low alcohol content that both Winos really liked.  Easily earns a Good Rating!  Comes from the Quady Winery in Madera, CA.  Made from the Orange Muscat grape.  Has a sweet taste.  Much sweeter than other Moscato Wines.

Barefoot Winery Sweet Red

Another offering from the Barefoot Winery.  This one is their Sweet Red.  It earns a Good Rating without a problem!

Santa's Contribution to the Winos.

Santa delivered a few bottles to the Winos this morning.  Will have to post as we work through these selections.  Some are familiar and we have had before.  Others look new... Barefoot Sweet Red and Riesling!

Davinci's Chianti

The Red Wine Wino has a weakness for Chianti.  In this case, Davinci's offering imported from overseas hit the spot.  Both Winos agree to buy it again.  Rating:  Good!

Update: 4/13/2014:  Not sure but this last bottle we purchased has us wavering on this one.  Re-rating it as Neutral.  Noticed an aftertaste that had the Red Wino confused.

Barefoot Bubbly - Moscato Spumante

Barefoot Bubbly - Moscato Spumante offered by Barefoot Winery.  It is a sparkling wine that we have had before.  Both Winos liked it then.  Both Winos liked it again!  Easily maintains a "Good Rating"!

Cavalli Pizzeria and Wine Bar - House Red (Merlot)

Happy hour last night at a pizzeria we like to frequent.  Pizzas cooked in a wood fired, brick oven and basically flash cooked at high temps.  Pizza is done in 90 seconds!  And, what better way to have pizza then a glass of red wine!

In this case, the Red Wine Wino opted for the Restaurant's House Red in a Merlot.  Very good wine,... the Winos are rating this one "Good"!  Will purchase this one again in the future!

Franzia Fruity Red Sangria

Here is another one from Franzia.  It's their Fruity Red Sangria that comes in a 5 liter cardboard box.  The two Winos gave this one a "Good Rating".

We have no issues with wine that comes in a cardboard box as long as it tastes good.  In this case, it tastes good!  Keeping this one in mind when the funds are running low (but would also buy it if rolling in dough!).

Lindeman's Bin 50 Shiraz

Have not had a Shiraz in a while.  Pulled this one off the wine rack at home.  Been gathering dust, so better late than never... Crafted in Australia and priced right - less than $5!  Both Winos give this one a Good Rating.

Choctaw Casino's Diamond Back Lounge - House Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon

Was out last night to try our luck at the gaming tables at Choctaw Casino.  Was sidetracked by a free concert featuring Lee Rocker , stand-up bass player for the rockabilly band Stray Cats!  While enjoying the live music, ordered a couple of red wines from the bar.  Both wines earned a "Good Rating" with the Cabernet Sauvignon having the slight edge over the Merlot. 

PS:  If you like live music and rockabilly sounds, you will like Lee Rocker and his band.  Outstanding performance in a small group setting!
