Messina Hof's Ebony Ports of Call Port Wine #portwine

Messina Hof's Ebony Ports of Call port wine continues to earn it's Good Rating from the Winos. Strong but sweet, always a good for a winter's evening chllin' in the backyard... plus the 16% Alcohol Content does not hurt!

California Dream Cabernet Sauvignon #redwine

New one that the Red Wine Wino already liked just by the 13.5% Alcohol Content. Luckily, the White Wine Wino keeps everything in perspective. It's tasty enough to get the Good Rating for California Dream Cabernet Sauvignon!

90 Moscato D'Asti #moscato

New one that we have not tried before - 90 Moscato d'Asti. Comes from Moscato d'Asti winery in Italy. Tasty and sweet, just like the White Wine Wino likes. 6.5% Alcohol Content has the Red Wine Wino wavering but it is tasty, so ... giving this one a Good Rating and will buy again.

Redds Wicked Apple Ale

Redds Wicked Apple Ale in the 8% alcohol content is always good for the Winos. Big can this round; ended up splitting it between the Red and White Winos!

Vodka and Rum... #totalwine

Stopped at Total Wine to pick up some vodka and rum. Went with Sobieski Vodka and Cruzan 151 Rum. Dirty Martinis for now, fortified egg nog for later! Box for the vodka had some tasty cocktail recipes, too.

Barefoot Red Moscato #wine

Barefoot Red Moscato for a tasty before dinner drink. All is well! Now what's for dinner...?

CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon #redwine

CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon gets a Good Rating from the Winos again this round. It's Winter and it is cold out there. But, nothing beats a glass of red on a Winter's night!

Buttery Nipple... #sheelinwhitechocolate

Buttery Nipple cocktails are perfect for any occasion this Winter! The Winos like to make them using Sheelin's White Chocolate Irish Cream and 99 Proof Butterscotch Schnapps... Happy Holidays!

Sheelin White Chocolate Irish Cream and di Amore Amaretto #cocktails

Picked up the fixings to mix a cocktail the Winos have not tried. It calls for Sheelin White Chocolate Irish Cream and di Amore Amaretto. White Wine Wino liked the cool glasses that came with the Irish Cream as well as the recipe for a ...oops. Threw the box out. Going to have to make a run back to the store and get a picture of the box with the recipe. LOL!

Tilt Mini Variable Aerator #wine

Not sure about this one yet - Host Tilt Mini Variable Aerator. Going to try more glasses of wine to "test" it out. White Wine Wino bought one on a whim. So far, have found it easy to use. And, seems to be an improvement in the taste... but to be certain Red Wine Wino must test it thoroughly with more wine.

Bolla Chianti #chianti #redwine

Having done a stint overseas in Italy while in the service, the Red Wine Wino has an affinity for Chianti. That said, while out and about, spied a big bottle of Bolla Chianti at Total Wine and More. It short order, the bottle was in the bag! Winos agreed on buying this one again the future, earning a Good Rating! Now just have to sit back and enjoy a glass or two over the Thanksgiving Holidays!

Landon Winery Raspberry Wine #fruitwine

This one continues to earn its Good Rating - Landon Winery Raspberry Wine. White Wine Wino likes it served chilled; Red Wine Wino likes it at room temperature. Regardless, Winos will bu it again in the future.

Liberty Creek Chardonnay

White Wine Wino likes this one! Red Wine Wino is still thinking about it. True to our rating system, Liberty Creek Chardonnay gets a Neutral Rating since the Winos cannot agree to purchase again.

Horton Winery's Blueberry Wine #wine

New one to try... it's Horton Winery's Blueberry Wine. So far, the Winos are liking this one. Sweet but not too sweet. Works for chillin' in the backyard on a sunny fall afternoon! Work also while editing video in the late evening!

Bar Louie's for Martinis! #martinis

Stopped at Bar Louie's for Martinis. Rat Pack and Dirty Martini were tasty and strong! Had appetizers and then ordered the Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream to top it off! Tasty, tasty, tasty!

Gloria's Margarita and Strawberry Mojito

Dinner the other night at Gloria's. Been some time since we had dinner there. Went with the House Margarita and Strawberry Mojito. Margarita was good, looks like they may have changed back to the mix we like versus the one that had an aftertaste that detracted from it. Strawberry Mojito was sweet and tasty! White Wine Wino will likely order it again!

Guinness, Shinerbock, and Barefoot Sweet Red

The other day had a round o Guinness while meeting an old friend in Addison. Later, while chillin anf grillin, had a Shinerbock Beer. Then, capped things off with a Barefoot Winery Sweet Red.  All was good in the Universe!

Village Burger Margaritas! #margaritas

Always a good deal... Margaritas at Village Burger. Had the Chamborita and the Mangorita. Tasty and strong! Only have two else beware the "buzz" later!

Grimaldi's Pizza House Italian Red and Moscato

Had pizza at Grimaldi's. Tasty pizza and very filling. Ordered the House Italian Red and Moscato. No names on the wines but liked them; will make an effort to get them next time!

The Cellar Craft and Kitchen... #wines

Villa Pozzi Moscato at the The Cellar Craft and Kitchen while waiting for our table. Ordered the Moscato and a House Red.  All was good! House Red was Canyon Road Merlot.

Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina Margaritas!

Off to Papa Lopez Mexican Cantina for a flight of Margaritas for Happy Hour last week. Both Winos agree to comeback as these are tasty and strong... just the way they like their margaritas!

Beringer Moscato and Red Moscato

Picked up two bottles of Beringer's wines in the Moscato and Red Moscato offerings. We liked them in the past but what has us thrown is the "Main and Vine" on the label. Past purchases we did not see this on the label. That said, both get a Good Rating from the Winos!

Joe's Crab Shack - Category 5 Hurricane

Stopped at Joe's for a bite one evening; opted for a cocktail. Saw the limit two per customer for the Category 5 Hurricane. Tasty drink with a some extra "oomph" to keep things interesting. Red Wine Wino is keeping this one handy next time the Winos are at Joe's!

Yellowtail Big Bold Red

Mixed taste buds on this one... Yellowtail Big Bold Red. White Wine Wino was not impressed. Red Wine Wino liked it. Course the price is right and the alcohol content is good (13.5%) for the Red Wine Wino... but he is a pushover. True to the rating system, this one gets a Neutral Rating since the Winos cannot agree to buy it again.

Strongbow Hard Apple Cider

Not wine but gotta mention Strongbow Hard Apple Cider. It's tasty and works well while watching the grass grow! This one gets a Good Rating by the Winos!

Llano Sweet Red

Had this one before and both Winos agree to continuing buying it again in the future. Maintains a Good Rating... Llano Sweet Red!
