On a different note, Did someone say sinning is winning? I'm not necessarily a proponent of sin.. But I do have something to chat with you about:
It's kinda like the 7 Deadly Sins but slightly different.
As you may know, the seven deadly sins, also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins, are a classification of vices that were originally used in early Christian teachings to educate and instruct followers concerning (immoral) fallen man's tendency to sin.
The 7 Are:
So what I really want to talk about is the 7 Deadly Zins...... Anyone out there familiar with this brand?
This Zin is rapidly becoming the bottle that I most consistently go to. Now, I don't claim to be a top notch wine connoisseur but I've been known to tip the bottle with the best of them. Usually, I like to kick back in the warm summer afternoon with a cool refreshing glass of Chardonnay. I like it oaky, buttery and smooth. When dinner rolls around, I'm looking for a full bodied glass or two of red. Something in the Zinfandel or Cabernet Sauvignon category. I don't buy into the drink red wine with red meat and drink white wine with fish or chicken exclusively, philosophy. I think you should drink and enjoy what you like. And that seems to be more and more the going trend. One caveat: Be careful not to under power/overpower your food with an improper wine choice. The right wine can and will compliment your meal. What do you guys think? Comments welcomed! 7 Deadly Zins runs anywhere from $11 -$20 a bottle. I get it at Costco for about $12. For me, this is a solid, good, full-bodied wine that's good for most occasions. But don't just take my word.

My next quest: Finding an affordable Cabernet/Zin that is good reliable and less than $5 a bottle.
If you have any recommendations Please leave me a note...
That's all for now.
