Barefoot Refresh Perfectly Pink

27 Jun

Barefoot has some new wine blends for summer that look like they’re worth trying. So far i’ve had the chance to try the Perfectly Pink blend of Grenache and Moscato. ABV is 9.5% and for $7.99 a bottle it’s not bad. It smells flowery with hints of peach and tangerine. The label says “enjoy over ice” and “refrigerate after opening” so this one should definitely be served chilled. I tried it chilled, without ice and it was bubbly like a champagne. It tasted more like juice than alcohol. It was sweet and tasted like it smelled, but almost too sweet because it left that phlegm in your throat feeling after a few sips. This would be a nice, light drink for the beach or poolside.

Barefoot White Zinfandel

14 Jun

My mom doesn’t drink wine very often, but when she does it usually something fruity like white zinfandel. This Barefoot brand is pretty good considering it’s about $7 at any grocery store. The label bragged it was the most awarded wine brand so I figured it was worth a try. The bottle doesn’t tell me very much, like the vintage or ABV, but it does tell you it’s from California. It smells fruity like citrus and peach. The taste is a little sweet with a balance of bitterness. Hints of strawberry with a very nice finish. Overall enjoyable, especially for a light summer wine.

Woodbridge Sauvignon Blanc 2012

6 Jun

There’s not much to say about this wine. Yes, I knew what I was getting myself into when I realized it was another Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi wine, but I thought that since it was a Sauvignon Blanc it might be different. Different, yes, better, no. A 2012 vintage from California this one starts out good but gets worse as you drink it. The aroma is amazing with sweet notes of strawberry, but the taste it terrible like bitter petroleum. For $5.99 at Publix it sure did make a great cooking wine for my mom’s tilapia.
