i am not saying that i am in any way a wine connoisseur but i do like my vintage grape juice. because my life is so laid back at the moment, i usually pour myself a goblet to take to my room to sip on while watching a movie and working on any type of paperwork i have for that evening. i have tasted many different wines over the years. my absolute favorite was a 1997 insignia followed by a 2003 rudd that we had in celebration of graduating from college over a dinner at my favorite restaurant. however, these, along with other favorites, are a little out of my price range for an everyday evening treat. of them all, my daily go-to has been alamos' malbec. it has a slight red cherry taste but finishes off slightly spicy with a hint of chocolate and oak. its smooth finish leaves me lulling off to sleep without a long lasting aftertaste. now, enough of the chit-chat, i have a glass to finish and a movie to attend to.
