Wednesdays Wine

Since I love wine so much I thought I’d start sharing with you some of my favorites.

 Cardinal Zin

I bought this wine primarily because of the cool label, its red and was on sale!!

This has become one of my new favorites.

Oh look the bottle is empty?!

 

“We are zealous believers in the decadent and forbidden flavors of this sinfully delicious Zinfandel. Grown from Beastly Old Vines from stately, yet sometimes forgotten vineyards throughout California. This wine elicits fervent, fecund and frenzied tongue enveloping pleasures. A wine of substance, it’s a Cardinal Zin not to drink at the altar of this decadent, spicy zinfandel. This is a refined pleasure, with intense flavors of blackberry mingling with soft creamy touches of oak, vanilla and dry herbs. It’s full on the palate, but not heavy and the fruit is constant from the first sip to the end of the finish.”

“This is a very versatile wine that pairs well with grilled pork, pasta Bolognese, barbecued ribs or chops (pork, lamb, you choose!).”

Some wine facts courtesy of Wikipedia,

Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients – healthy…yes?

Wine is a psychoactive drug, as are all alcoholic beverages, commonly used for its intoxicating effects today and throughout history. The psychoactive effects of wine are evident at the normal serving size. – I don’t believe it!

Read this bit after a glass or two of wine:

The English word “wine” comes from the Proto-Germanic *winam, an early borrowing from the Latin vinum, “wine” or “(grape) vine“, itself derived from the Proto-Indo-European stem *win-o- (cf. Hittite: wiyana; Lycian: oino; Ancient Greek: οἶνος oinos; Aeolic Greek: ϝοῖνος woinos, Armenian: gini). 

 Wine often, Laugh much
