Wine whine

July 22nd, 2008 by jomo

An oenophile I am not, but neither am I a wino, although my spouse would be happy to argue with me about the latter claim. When I pointed out to her that laboratory experiments suggested that four 5-ounce glasses of red wine daily were found to be beneficial, she snorted. Of course 20 ounces of wine is quite a bit…with the bar that high, I have a way to go.

My wine of choice for years has been St. Genevieve’s Merlot. Tasty, cheap, and made in West Texas. Sometimes, in a snobbish mood, I buy the Pinot Noir or Cabernet Sauvignon. I say “has been” because I found that the price of the whole St. Genevieve’s line has inflated at my local wine merchant, HEB Supermarket.

So I have moved for economy from the varietal to the blend, and St. Genevieve’s has made it easier for me to do so…they now have two blended red offerings: Red and Sweet Red. Obviously, Sweet Red is for women and punch bowls. Red is for me.

They previously had a blend called Texas Red, but it was strictly for winos, I’m sure.
