A while back I posted about the new Tennessee law allowing wine in grocery stores. I've been testing the waters in the wine aisles, and I had tried a few since I last posted on the topic and thought I'd update. I did a lot of research online, and Lula Harp recommended a phone app called Vivino. I drink maybe half a glass with supper many evenings, so it takes a while to go through each bottle. I have found several more I like. I know nothing about wine or wine reviewing, so really all I can say is, "I like this one. I wouldn't say "no" to more of it," or "Yuck."
The ones from the first post:
Of those, I liked the Liberty School Cabernet and Nobel Vines Merlot.
The ones I've tried since then are 14 Hands Merlot:
which I like but not as much as the Noble Vines,
and these 3:
Layer Cake Pinot Noir, which I don't like; Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc, which is fine but I'll keep looking; and Ravenswood Zinfandel, which I'm not going to drink more of.
Then there were these:
The Gascon Malbec, which was fine, but I'll try another Malbec next time; the Gerard Bertrand Languedoc Syrah, also perfectly drinkable, but which I won't buy again; and Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon, which I've already bought more of. I may even like that last one better than the Noble Vines Cabernet which had been my favorite to this point.
This is a fun little project. Who knows? I may become a regular wine drinker. Of course, I may go back to water and iced tea once the novelty wears off.
