I have a confession to make. I have an addiction. To wine. It’s true that I like a nice, full glass from time to time, but who doesn’t? Sometimes one glass can lead to two (or three), and sure, we have to stock up at the liquor stores for the cheaper varieties as to not break the bank. But what can I say? There’s just something about that rich, liquid weight in the palm of my hand. Is it bad that I begin hankering for my first glass at 2 PM? Can anyone out there vouch for my cravings and openly agree with me?
Call me a wine-o if you will, but even I can admit I’m not exactly that knowledgeable when it comes to delicate finishes, spicy palettes, and full-bodied flavors. Heck, I even made up that verbiage. I have my favorite bottles that come in at $3.99, but every now and then, I’ll splurge on the $10 varieties. I know, I can be a real kook. But am I right or am I right that any bottle named after a cute animal is usually a good bet?
Tonight, I departed from my usual stand-by choices and snagged two bottles that just looked pretty flippin’ neat. At just $5.99 a piece, they easily fell within my budget friendly price range. How fun are these label graphics? These puppies would surely be amusing host(ess) gifts for dinner parties, holidays, or friendly gatherings (hint, hint to my lovely amigos). Amidst a sea of tall green bottles with muddy labels and too much text, these babies practically leaped off the shelves and into my arms. Oh, how I can’t wait to pop those tops!
So let’s all raise a glass. Here’s to happiness and curiosity. Drink up. Because as they say, it’ll keep those doctors away.
