    Question Wine and Singing Women

    Just a moment ago a friend sent me this URL:
    https://wineshop.winesisterhood.com/index.cfm

    And since I started the 'Room' post whilst sipping a cheap (very) merlot I thought it only appropriate to share.

    Check out the names, Girls!

    Being a Middle Sister myself, I am seriously liking it...

    I have no idea if the wine is even drinkable, but I thought the concept and the linked website was fun...

    Have you ever picked out a wine because of the name? the label? So tell me what names/labels/criteria make you sing!

    I'm guilty of occasionally buying a bottle based on the name or a cool label but I find they are rarely memorable or worth a second glance. Then again, I admit to being a wine and food snob but it comes with the livelyhood.

    I tend to read the little hang tags on the shelf at the store. The higher the score, the more likely I am to try it. Eitherway, judging from the number of corks I have in a jug, I probably uncork a few too many bottles.

    I bought this because
    1) I love Zinfandels
    2) I loved the label
    3) I found the bottle-top intriguing.

    And imagine my delight when I even liked the wine!

    Have your cake and drink it too!

    This was recommended by one of my customers who offers an extensive wine list at his restaurant. He gave me a bottle and I've since had him order me a few more. Suprisingly, it retails for around $15.



    Tasting Notes: A balance of elegance and power; inky black fruit, spice and white pepper, jammy black cherries, plums, blackberry fruit, truffles, tar, and espresso. Warm and rich in the mouth with a creamy texture; the ripe fruit is well supported by the deep structure of the wine. Sit back and travel through timeRelax on a hot summer evening, the fountain in the background, church-bells in the distance.

    My favorite is Louis Jadot but the most fun labeled I've ever bought is "B*tch,B*tch," etc. The back of the label has it written over and over and, well you know. (I hope this dosn't violate the forum rules)

    The sun was out, temp in the 70's and other than Chi. & Cleveland, the roads were great. (Although the Ind. & Oh. turnpikes nearly broke me!)
    Aiming for Vermont tomorrow night. Riding along the east is pretty cool. First time in these states. Thanks for asking.

    I thought having a glass of wine while chatting in the evening was a pre-requisite in here!

    Norton

    Since a couple of my first bikes were Norton Atlases, I couldn't resist an Argentinian wine called Norton. Turns out it is quite good. I also bought my sisters each a bottle of Sibling Rivalry. They got a good laugh out of that.

    Not having this one tonight, but

    I wanted to share this wine label from Montana.

    Turned out to be a pretty decent pinot noir.

    Waiting to taste

    Here in our little village we have a place called Confections For Any Occasion. It is a store with homemade chocolates and assorted other goodies along with some of WI area items. I know the owner and he carries a small assortment of WI wines. I bought a bottle of VonSteil Winery "Naughty Girl" just for fun. I am waiting to try it as I have just had surgery and wine is not a -juice- liquid I can have yet, so I will have to report back when I'm allowed to have wine again.
