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!
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!
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.

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!

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!
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.

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!

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!

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!
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!
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.

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!
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!
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.
