Brought to you by: The Letter B
I know that the wine coolers I had in college made me think I knew what wine was like, but thank goodness there were better options after Zima (ever add a jolly rancher to it?!), Mikes Hard Lemonade*, and Boone's Farm!
I definitely don't consider myself a wine snob. I don't do well with pairing my food with what wine I drink--I just like what tastes good! However, I seem to go through phases with my red and white-up until recently, when LJ reintroduced me to a great red, I was strictly drinking white and blush--and now I'm back to enjoying a good Shiraz/Cabernet/Merlot every now and then.
I'm also lucky to live in a state where you can't go ten miles and not see a sign for a vineyard. We definitely enjoy supporting the local economy :)
BUT, I feel there is huge void in my wine relationship.
I have yet to enjoy Two Buck Chuck from Trader Joe's. GASP! I know...its terrible and I feel ashamed to admit this. But, we don't have a TJ's near me--so I'm determined to map out the nearest location, and make sure I take a road trip in the very near future.
What is your favorite wine? Is there one that should be occupying a slot in my wine fridge?
*I do know some people who still enjoy this beverage, and if I'm honest, I still reach for one every now and then...
