Buying Wine? You Do Not To Be An Expert: A little of what I know about wine.

Have you ever gone to the store to buy a bottle of wine, and said I have no idea what a good wine is? If you, have you are not alone. Today I hope to clear some things up for you, and help you find a wine that you will enjoy. Now, kick back and have a glass of wine with me, won’t you?Bottle Of Merlot

Merlot:

In French the word Merlot means little black bird, and is the second most popular grape in America. We will discuss the number one favorite grape later in this article. Merlot is known for being a soft, ripe, and elegant wine, that pairs well with food, and is easy to drink by its self.

Merlot is a very approachable wine, especially for someone who is a first time wine drinker. It is the most recommended red wine for beginners. We can date the making of Merlot all the way back to the late 1700s. When a french winemaker from the Bordeaux region of France, formally labeled the grapes in his Bordeaux wine blend. The grape spread across the region, and became known for adding a softness and luscious fruit flavor to the wine, when combined with the regions favorite grape, Cabernet Sauvignon. The combination of the two grapes complimented each other very well.

The pair became the main ingredient in the now world renowned Bordeaux Blend. That is now coveted by the majority of the worlds wine drinkers. Let’s fast-forward to the mid nineteenth century, when the grapes found their way to the California regions. American winemakers started using 100% Merlot grapes. The grapes were easy to grow, and they found that Americans really loved the softness of the fruit on its own. And they we enjoyed the low tannin levels of the grape.

Tannens:Red Grapes

Have you been sitting with a group of friends, drinking a glass or two of wine, and one of them refers to the tannin’s of the wine? And you did not known what they were talking about! Do not feel bad, it is not necessary for you to known in order to enjoy the wine. However, it can help you understand the wine that you are drinking, and why some wines give us a headache.

You experience the effects of tannin’s any time you drink a wine that causes a drying effect in your mouth. Tannin’s are naturally occurring compounds found in the grapes skins, seeds, and stems. The scientific name for tannin s is polyphenols. The compounds release from the skins, seeds, and stems as they soak in the grape juice, just after the grapes are pressed.

Tannin’s are also what give certain wines like Cabernet sauvignon their characteristic dryness or astringency. Any time you have a drying sensation in your mouth from drinking wine, you are experiencing tannin s. Depending on how dry your mouth feels, you can determine how high or how low the tannin levels of your wine is. A wine that is high in tannin s is called tannic.

Tannins can also be found in black tea as well as some dark chocolate. And when you get a headache from drinking wine you can blame it on the tannin s, not on having consumed too much of the wine. Getting a headache from tannin s is rare, we usually get them from consuming more wine than we should have. But, if you notice this effect is from the wine, there is a solution for the problem. Switch to a white wine, white wines are naturally lower in tannin s then red wine is.

Chardonnay:Chardonnay Winery

Chardonnay is the most popular white wine on today’s market. Travel to any wine in the world, and you will find at least one vineyard growing chardonnay. It is a wine that can be simple, or regal, aged for many years, or consumed immediately.

So, how did this white grape become so popular? Chardonnay was born in the Burgundy region of France, where it is known as white Burgundy. It was in this region that the wine gained great acclaim for it;s elegance. Soon after its rise in popularity, winemakers in the Champagne region began grow the grape as well. Using it for their sparkling wines.

As the grapes spread form region to region, winemakers found that different climates produced different flavors. Warm climates would produce a chardonnay that was ripe, and full of tropical flavors. Compared to when grown in cooler climates, the grape would produce favors of apples, as well as fall earthy aromas such as mushrooms, and the smell of fallen leaves.

With all the variety’s of grapes that can be produced around the world, wine drinkers can have a chardonnay for every season, and occasion. This worldwide variety allows for chardonnay to go well on its own for a warm summer day, or on a cold winter night with a hearty stew.

Cabernet Sauvignon:

In the seventeenth century, in southwestern France an accidental breeding of a red Cabernet franc grape, and a white sauvignon blanc grape plant, gave birth to a blend that became our most popular grape here in America. Cabernet Sauvignon is a red grape known for its thick skin, and the vines resistance to the elements. After the birth of this variety, it started to be adopted in parts of France by winemakers searching for more durable plant, that was easy to grow.

And the grape found its champion in the Bordeaux region of France. As a wine, Cabernet sauvignon is known for its dark color, full body, and an alcohol content that is over 13.5% in volume. Places like California, Australia, and Chile, The alcohol content can get as high as 14.5% and sometimes going over15% in alcohol content.

This is a dry wine ( not sweet ) and has a healthy level of tannin, which is why your mouth feels dry after taking a sip. This wine should be drank with food to help combat the acidity, tannin level, and alcohol content. There is no rule about drinking wine or any other alcoholic beverage with food. However, this wine can be very overwhelming by its self.

Conclusion:

I do not want to drag this subject out more then I have to. So, I will leave you with this final note. Red wines pair really well with red meats, such as steaks, and burgers. And white wines pair well with all the varieties of fish.

Remember to drink responsibly, and please never drink and drive. Have a blessed day, love John D.

Get Your Alcohol Delivered This Labor Day Weekend:

Did you know that you can have any type of alcoholic beverage delivered right to your front door? I am completely serious, you can get your alcohol delivered this labor day weekend. Now, here is the best part, you get it in about one-hour. You heard me right, a one-hour delivery time.

Beer:Michelob Ultra

Are you looking to keep it light this labor day weekend? Then an ice-cold Michelob Ultra beer is just what the doctor ordered. A clean crisp, low carbohydrate, refreshing taste. This is beer that I personally keep stocked in my refrigerator.

Maybe a light beer is not your cup of tea, that’s alright. There is plenty of other beers for you to choose. Whatever brand of beer that you want, craft beer, an IPA, or just plain old Budweiser. It does not matter, you can have it delivered, so you can keep the party going. And you never have to leave the house.

Talk about a dream come true, stay at home drinking and never have to worry about running out of our favorite beverages. I wish that this delivery service was around in my younger days.

You Want Wine?

Not a beer drinker, maybe you like mellow out with a chilled glass of wine. No problem, guess what, you can have wine delivered to your home as well. You can get white wine, red wine, a rose`e, any kind of wine that you like.

I will admit it, I like a glass of wine myself once in a while. Drinking wine instead of beer, does not make you or I any less of a man. Believe it or not the brandy that we like to drink starts out as wine in the early stages.

Look it really does not matter what you decide to drink, you can still have it delivered to you. And it can be at your door in about one hour. How does that sound to you?

The Hard Stuff:

Oh yeah, let’s not forget about our favorites, whiskey, bourbon, gin, rum, tequila, or any other liquor that you like to drink. If you can find it in a liquor store, then you can find it here on this site.

That’s right, I have not told you where yet. Well let’s take care of that right now. ->->->CLICK HERE<-<-<- This will simplify things for you. Just click the link, and go order whatever your little heart desires. Seriously, it does not matter whatever it is that you want, you can get here. Go ahead and check it out for yourself, I would lie about this.The Hard Stuff

The Extra’s:

Not only can you have alcohol delivered, you can also have extra’s to help keep the party going. Like what, you ask. Well let me tell you. First there is the all important bags of ice. You need to be able to keep everything nice and cold, don’t you? What is the point of ordering drinks, if you can not keep them cold for your friends. So do not forget the ice.

Second, you need to have some snacks on hand. You can not have a party or gathering of friends, and not have something for them to nibble on. What kind of a host would that make you? Not a very good one, if you ask me.

Our main job whenever we have a get together with friends, is for everyone there to have a good time. Being able to have all of our beverages delivered is a big plus. Throw in the fact that we can get bags of ice, and snacks delivered as well is like winning the lottery.

Like I said earlier, I wish this delivery service was around in my younger days. It would have made things so much less complicated for me. At least now for you I have a way to make life a little bit easier.

Life Is Good:Ice

You know with all the improvements these days, Life really is good. Just think about it, with the internet, we never have to leave our homes. I suppose it was only a matter of time, before someone figured out how to deliver alcohol to us at home.

During this period of uncertain times, I think that delivery services like this on is a god- send. Particularly if you are agoraphobic. Meaning you have a fear of leaving the house.

I do not think that this makes you a bad person, or that you are a chicken. Having agoraphobia is a serious problem, and perhaps should be addressed by a professional. I am not saying that you are crazy. you are probably the smart one of us. Just know that you are not alone in this world.

Besides why should you leave the house? Your home is a haven for you. Plus now being able to get alcohol delivered to you, bonus time. So rejoice and stay home and order some drinks and snacks with your dinner order. No one here is going to judge you. We want to party, not make fun of anyone.

All that I want for everyone is to make life a little bit easier for you. Take some of the pressure off, so you can sit back and have a great time. We are here for a short period of time, let’s enjoy what we can while we can.

Remember if you do decide to get your alcohol delivered this labor day weekend. You can have it in about one hour. You can not ask for anything better than that. This is by far the absolute best delivery service that I have been able to find. I hope that you find something here that you will enjoy this weekend. At least if you are drinking at home, and you run out of beverages, or snacks. You can always come back and order more to be delivered. This way you can stay safe at home, and not go out for a drive to the liquor store. End up getting pulled over by the police, then getting a ticket for driving while intoxicated.

Remember to drink responsibly and drink and drive. Your friend John D.

Thank you.
