    You haven’t drunk too much wine if you can still lie on the floor without holding on.

    The stresses of the holiday have passed… Time for downtime, wine drinking, reading and basic tom-foolery!:p

    What are you drinking today and are you snowed in/stranded away from home?

    Merry Christmas to all! Even if you don’t celebrate it (I don’t) it’s still a day to rest and reflect on life, love, finances and more! So have a good one with those you love! What you are drinking today as you share in the wonder of the holidays?

    Do you drink your white wines cold or at room temperature?

    I prefer 60-65 degrees for most whites. I find it helps the smells and flavors come alive!

    Do you decant your wine? Do you notice any difference?

    I use either a decanter or a Vinturi funnel to aerate my wine.

    Wine and personal finances… Can they co-exist? Why yes, yes they can… Barrels of wine are no different than investing. Time, patience and planning create something marvelous on the other end! Money is no different than a bottle of wine as they both bring joy and sometimes, even unwelcomed guests!;-)

    Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? If so, are you finally popping the cork on something to unwind with? If so, what are you drinking?

    Review- Cantina Di Merlara 2007 

    This fine little wine was purchased at significant discount ($4.99) from Fresh & Easy Marketplace and actually is a great little performer for it’s price point. A blend of 80% Corvina and 20% Merlot it is very light, but flavorful. It’s not a fruit explosion by any means, but a good wine to serve guests with just about any dish I can think of. Very ripe with plums and little notes of berries and a slight afternote of almonds. If you live near a Fresh & Easy and want a wine that goes well with chicken or steak, this blend may be a good party piece to bring along for the ride. Light, pleasant and a real joy… Plus nobody can argue with the price!

    Personal Palate Score- 3.4 out of 5
    $4.99 @ Fresh & Easy Marketplace
    12% ABV

    Go for quality this holiday season… Don’t settle for DVD when Blu-Ray rules, otherwise you may get it in the end… or head!
