After the carb overload, sugar overload, and fat devouring I think I should advise you to do nothing more than drink water.
But I will not be that friend. No way.
This week I’m giving you a mass-produced, easy to pick up, cheap wine. Truth be told you have probably all had it. But hey – it’s Thanksgiving weekend and I’m not trying to be all Food & Drink on you, okay?
There she is – Apothic Red. I have a love hate relationship with this wine. Let’s do some personal searching over these feelings towards this wine that can be found at Walmart for 8.97 a bottle.
The price – $8.97
Ease of purchasing – Available at Walmart, Target, pretty much every grocery store here.
The taste – A little too sweet for me but it will do.
An easy to share wine for red lovers.
After I drink my favorite wine this stuff tastes like garbage. You cannot follow up a good Cab with a red blend, folks. It just isn’t in the natural progression of nature.
It is way sweet. I prefer much more dry.
The loves outweigh the hates.
This is worth the $10 bill you have stashed behind your driver’s license.
If you have not had this wine before I can best describe it as hints of oak, sweetness of blackberries, and maybe a hint of vanilla here and there. It pairs nicely with sweets (like that pie you are still eating), and hearty stews, and air.
