- Amber Select Brandy was tasty and carries the 80 proof alcohol content. But, had Minute Maid Berry Fruit Punch and WOW! Very Tasty!
- Martini was mixed at a restaurant; was tasty but no strength... need the one's from Bar Louie!
- Messina Hof Port Wine remains a sure thing... sweet and strong alcohol content.

How about some Amber Select Brandy, a Martini, and Messina Hof Port Wine? Red Wine Wino says, "Sure Thing!"
Preparing Thanksgiving turkey the way we like it... deep-fried! While doing so, best way to chill while cooking it is with a glass of Grapecreek Vineyard's Pinot Grigio and Charlie the Maltese Puppy looking on - "supervising" of course. Well looks like he prefers to take a nap instead while the Red Wine Wino cooks the turkey. No worries... the wine was good; will buy again earning its Good Rating from the Winos!
Cabernet Sauvignon from Woodwork Winery in California was a tasty one. Had this one with a home cooked dinner of Carne Asada! Went well with the spicy meat and grilled vegetables. Winos give Woodwork's Cabernet Sauvignon a Good Rating!
New one for us... Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon. This one has a hint of mocha and goes well cheeses. For the Red Wine Wino, it goes well with anything but he is too easy when it comes to red wines. White Wine Wino gives it a thumbs up! Good Rating for Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon!
Dinner with the White Wine Wino, Sweet Wine Wino, and your's truly the Red Wine Wino at Chuy's/ Ordered food and drinks; this round went with Queso and Chips and Tacos, then settled in for a cocktail or two - Margaritas and the Frose were tasty but not as "fortified" as we are used to!
Cold evening but not cold enough to not have a Martini while warming by an open fire with Charlie the Maltese Puppy! Add in grilled steaks and a mix of salads - Ceasar and a Spicy Caprese, and we can only say, "My life is good!"

Grapecreek Vineyard Pinot Grigio and Black Box Merlot to go with dinner of leftover Chicken Piccata and other things... Breaded Shrimp and Caprese Salad but spiced with Jalapenos! Another tasty combo!
Grapecreek Vineyard's Pinot Grigio was tasty! Enjoyed the offering from the Vineyard's Wine Club... add the leftover Halloween candy and it was awesome!
