Isn’t it funny how something you initially are not sure of, you learn to like a lot and I did. Maybe I need to apply this logic to dating :). Or perhaps not, too much sweetness might just be too much… at least all of the time.

Wine Review: Arona Sauvignon Blanc 2010

40-somethinglife.blogspot...

A zing of tartness stays with you sip after sip - this is an interesting and easy wine. I think I liked this wine more than most Marlborough wines because it was less agrgressive. I would definitely buy it again for a nice every day wine.

Wine Review: Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico 2009 - $20

40-somethinglife.blogspot...

This Chianti is a gorgeous rich garnet color when you pour. Luscious aromas of deep dark cherries and spicy rich coffee. The wine gives off a ripe sweetness that makes you ponder if it will have a similar taste.

What should I add to this list?
