Anyway, I said all that to say this, I found some really fun bottles that I am enjoying. This is one:
It is slightly sweet and does not have a strong aftertaste. I am enjoying it and it went over well with the girls. Of course I am an Cabernet Sauvignon freak and I am always weary about trying cheap wines. You just never know what you are going to get. Which is why I stick to my favs and usually just pick up an odd bottle every now and then. Those odd bottles sometimes can make it onto my list though.
This one is next. I picked it up purely for the picture. Don't you just love it. I love this woman in all her "madness". Perfect name too. Ky and I could not resist. Its just been one of those weeks people.
This is one of my all time favorites. Its my"go to" wine. I just thought I would add it here. If you need a decent wine try it. It is good in Cabernet, Pinot Nior, and Shiraz. Tried them all and I give it the thumbs up. Let me warn you though, Ole Smokey Loon holds true to its name though. It will catch you off guard at first. It comes at you like a rush of smoke from a campfire. It settles in nicely though so don't judge to harshly on first taste. Ha.....you can even see a smidge of it on the label.....what can I say I am messy.
While I am at it I will show you my collection. This is what happens to my corks.
I love that jar. This is why. That jar is full of memories. That jar has friends near and far. That has yesterday, and months ago. That jar has Misti in it. My Mudbug. It has corks of Menage a Trois in it with it wasn't 3 it was the 4 of us.(Now before you guys get all dirty....its the name of a wine...Look it up) It has corks from time spent with an ex football player friend who turned me on to Shiraz and taught me the importance of dancing in the living room at 2am to "Come on Eileen", It has Kylene in it. Nights spent talking and laughing and planning the future. It has Josh in it. Bottles he bought just because he knew I would be here. Did I mention the beautiful stemless glasses the boy got me. KISSES.
You see it has life in it. It has good times and bad times. I love that.
"Here is to all the nights I can't remember with friends I will never forget"
and if you want to know how I am going to hold on to them well this is what I am going to do with them.
I am close, but I want a big board so going to hold out a little lonnger.
Have a good weekend my lovies. I know I will!
'Cause I'm livin' on things that excite me
Be they pastry or lobster or love
I'm just tryin' to get by bein' quiet and shy
In a world full of pushin' and shove
Because the wino and I know.....
Its a strange situation
Living my life like a song.
