I don't know the first thing about wine. I guess that's not true. I know it comes in at least three colors. Some kinds are considered "dry" which seems like a misnomer. Some kinds are considered "fruity" also seems weird since they all come from fruit. Anyway, I have decided since I am now a mother of three, for the good of all humanity, I need to learn to like wine.
I am going to review (in my EXTREME layman's terms) the different wines I sample. I will decide which wine to try based entirely on the prettiness of the label as well as which one is on sale, because I am shallow and cheap. Not sure how you will like it, but I guarantee I will have fun!
The first wine I tried is by Cupcake Vineyards and is called Angel Food. It was on sale for $6.99. The label reads "luscious, aromatic and delightfully reminiscent of an angel food cupcake. Flavors of baked Granny Smith apple and hints of toasty vanilla combine for a creamy mouthfeel." They had me at cupcake.
I clearly had a different vision of what Angel Food cake in wine form would taste like. Angel food cake is light and sweet. This wine is heavy and burny. Yes, I am sure burny is a word. Look it up.
Not especially sweet, it has a harsh almost chemically taste, not the creamy vanilla baked apple I was promised. False advertising. At least I have a pretty bottle.
