Who made up the rules for wine?  I try to make myself like more red wines, but I find myself more drawn to the sweet and citrus-flavored white wines.  Mind you, I gave up Boone's Farm years ago.  I, however, can't go too far beyond a late harvest Riesling or a New Zealand Savignon Blanc.  Does that make me an uncouth red-neck?  I think not.  Also, who came up with the rule that red wines are best enjoyed at room temperature?  Who drinks anything at room temperature?  I am from the south.  If you drink it, it's either piping hot or cold as ice.  I do agree that red wines taste better when given a little time to breathe, but drinking anything at 76 degrees makes me want to spit up.  I really don't know why I'm talking about this tonight, except that perhaps I've had a little too much wine (mixed with a good dose of Nyquil).  I guess I just don't feel like discussing what our president is ruining today, or debating whether or not some freak-o religious group has the right to burn the Koran.  I'd rather just enjoy my Monkey Bay Savignon Blanc and go watch an episode of Ghost Hunters on SyFy. 


  1. Beautiful blog, Sherri, and great first post!
