Wine Blogging Wednesday

It's Wine Blogging Wednesday, a meme of Lenndevours , hosted this month by Sam of Becks n Posh , and I have good news and bad news.

First, to get it over with, the bad news: the wine I tasted today, a White Merlot by J.W. Morris, was horrible. I barely got one gulp down before the cherry cough syrup taste made me gag. Good thing it only set me back $2.99 at Trader Joes.

The wine is a glowing nuclear pink, and I had a feeling it wasn't going to be good, but I was in a gambling mood.

To make up for it, I am drinking a 2001 L'Aventure Optimus, a red wine that has the potential to make me forget about anything bad that has ever happened.

The good news, though, is that I was so inspired by this month's assignment that I created a whole new blog, Queen of Roses devoted to Rose Wines. Lots of links and photos. Check it out!

Queen of Roses link doesn't work (looks like it's missing the end). Don't forget about your cookbooks. ;)

Wow, I love that you got so inspired! Good luck! :-)

Suebob said...

Thanks! I wrote the post about 3 glasses of Optimus later...doh.

Sam said...

Sue - sorry you didn't like this choice but since you now have a whole website dedicated to drinking pink I hope you will soon find some much better alternatives. (great idea btw)
Will have the round-up up today. That's a promise,

Steph - thanks for the reminder about the link. Very helpful.

Rachael - wine inspires LOL

Sam - I don't really like Merlot much, so I shoulda known white merlot would be especially evil. Trader Joes only had 3 roses and one was a white zin, so I bought the other two.
