Wino Wednesday 2016 Vol. 2

Happy Wino Wednesday babes!  

It's our second Wino Wednesday link up for 2016 and we are so excited to have you!



This month was a little different for me, because I went with a Malbec.  I'm generally not a big fan of Malbecs, but Josh loves them and picks them up pretty regularly.  (Cab lover for life!) 

I didn't mind this wine.  It wasn't my absolute favorite, but that is literally just because it is Malbec, not the wine.  It was pretty mild and easy to drink.  The description of the wine literally says "easy drinking wine", but aren't they all really easy drinking?  Just kidding.  Kind of.  

The wine maker's notes include "notes of blackberry jam, juicy blueberry, coffee, spice and white pepper."  I definitely got the coffee and spice notes, but not so much the others.  Overall, this is a decent wine for the price, but Malbec just isn't my jam.  This is the most neutral, non-exciting review ever, right?  Honesty is what I am feeling this month!

On a sort of similar, but not really at all note, I have spent more time than is necessary wheeling our bar cart around the house trying to find the perfect spot for it and rearranging it so it's perfect.  It's not perfect at all and I don't even know if I can commit to the spot it is in.



We got glass to try to cut and replace the wooden shelves with, but I feel like the space in between is too high and I need to figure out how to get a glass hanging situation going on underneath the top shelf.  If you have suggestions, please let me know!

Ok, now it's your turn! Link up below!



Cheers!   -xx

  1. I love malbecs--so now I need to find this one so I can try it (especially before it gets totally warm out and all I want are white wines). I love the cart--I think the glass hanging thing would be really cool underneath the top layer!

  3. I've liked some malbecs and some not so much. I had one for lunch at a wine room restaurant last week and it was tasty. Thanks for the party and a new month of finding new wines. I hope you had a wonderful time in Mexico. Enjoyed your IG pictures.

  4. Malbecs can be hit or miss for me it seems. Sounds like I don't need to try this one out.

  5. I'm intrigued as I haven't tried too many malbecs. Love your bar cart, and I'm sure you'll find the perfect spot for it! A bar cart is on my list to get this spring, I'm so sick of storing everything on the kitchen counter and taking up room.

  6. Oooh, I need to try this because I'm a big fan of Malbec's! I love your bar cart- we bought one 2 years ago and it's one of my favorite pieces. I love decorating it for the holidays too!

  7. I love the bar cart and that you can drag it from room to room! The downside of our bar is we're always running down to the basement to grab things we need from it!

  8. I love your bar cart! I will have to check out this Malbec for when I host book club, sounds like a crowd pleaser!

  9. I'm going to have to try this one or of plain curiosity. My favorite Malbec is the Kirkland (Costco) brand. It is SO good and is $6.99 haha

  10. Oh my goodness...I love wine, but I'm mostly obsessing over the starfish wine stopper - so stinkin' cute!
