Marietta Wines

AC's post reminded me of the WINE we drank that night. SOOO good. It's one of my faves and fairly cheap.

It's called Marietta Old Vine Red. This is how it's described:

Robert Parker calls this "One of California's iconic value wines..." (08/09) Once again, this killer Zin-based red is full and ripe and bursting with fruity goodness and enough stuffing to match pretty much anything you're serving for dinner, from roast chicken, to pizza, grilled meat and anything with a red sauce. So good, and so cheap, there's a very good reason this wine never stays in stock long enough.






This is the more expensive one I tried first at dinner at the Fish House one night. It's really only like $25 - $30 a bottle and it tastes of Chocolate! Very good for a celebration- it tastes more expensive than it is. I literally wanted to crawl into my glass when I tasted it and just drown in it.


Drink up!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
