it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these. with all this writing, i definitely need a glass of wine, thought! i was hoping to have some good news to report out of the last Naked Wines box, but alas, i got down to the reds and they’ve been kind of disappointing. that’s Southern for “they sucked.”
i’m currently revisiting the Jonathan Maltus Labrie Bordeaux and agree with a lot of the other reviewers — it tastes watered down. not light, but literally watered down. i’m not sure i’ve ever had this experience with a red before. weird. i’m afraid it might suffer the same fate as the last one . . .
the last one i had opened (and literally threw out halfway through, which i never do!) was the Jim Olsen Sweet Angel. sweet, it was indeed! i won’t go so far as to say it was actually bad. i just don’t enjoy sweet wines. for sure, this one is listed as “sweet & exotic.” i mean, maybe, maybe as a dessert wine, but no way could i drink this stuff with a meal or on it’s own.
so in good news, i did find these adorable wine glasses from One Kings Lane! love! i certainly don’t need a set for myself, but a girlfriend who just closed on a house might need them as a housewarming gift . . . and if a set somehow ended up in my shopping cart, well . . . i’m sure i could find room for them.
