Wine Review, Coastal Estates Merlot

If you haven't tried this Merlot yet go out & get some!!
We enjoyed it with our dinner on Saturday evening
and found it to "not bad" as my mom put it.
It was a nice tasting wine.
So far it's been 2 thumbs up for Red's picks.
(from the Wapp Fls crew anyway)
Looking forward to # 3!!

Hey, what was the menu? Who cooked? Who was there? Where was there? Which did you like more the "Loon" or "BV"? Why?

Is a "not bad" really a good review, perhaps Red's choice was mediocre, I consider a "not bad" as a "C" in terms of grading, I would have hoped for a better choice of Merlot....Red, please evalute your wines as well as your market more thoroghly...yanks

Oh i forgot to mention the details so here goes...

The where: my house, every Saturday mom has dinner with us after we go to 5:30 Mass.

The cook: HD of course.
The menue: oven roasted whole chikens with a bbq & brown sugar glaze, very yummy! oven roasted small white and red potatoes and whole green beens.

who was there: Hd, mom, Andrea, her boyfriend, Greg , Sarah & me

We liked this wine better than the "Loon" mom's "not bad" eguals a B+ definately better than a C.

HeHe you can go out to the store and get a bottle . It was $9.99 I know you like rose or sweeter wines but this was a nice lite merlot it din't leavee an after taste in your mouth. I liked it.

So brofy have you tried ityet? how avou the "Loon"? even gary tried that one.

Thanks for the details, always appreciated.

Sounds like fun too, wish we were there...

HD and I coulda talked about guns and culinary dishes while sippin the vino...

Thanks also for puttin KCM in his uncultured place, some minds just aren't ready...

PS: Hows Andrea likin the real world????? Any war stories??? Battles or victories????

I was at Target this weekend and ran into a former pupil... he was the manager and has another job at the airport and is married and he thanked me for teaching him and for teaching him how to play football... made my weekend... then KCM ruined it...

Nice post JAD and of course thanks to all the DC's for taking such good care of Mom on Saturday nights but do promptly return her to SoFla at the beginning of December!!

I am planning on trying the Merlot this weekend and hopefully it will be as good as the flying dog IPA I recently had...

Nice job Redmin with the poll and pic... but red you must know never to give KCM the satisfaction of knowing he ruined your weekend because now you just made his week!

It must be a good feeling that in some way you touched someones life especially when they get the chance to thank you for it. teachers are awesome!!

Andrea is doing very well, she has a mentor who comes in weekly to give her pointers advice or whatever she may need. She does have one trouble maker he has pushed her and I believe he is being suspended as we speak. Over all she likes & enjoys teaching.

yes GPE we will be sending our mom back to Florida soon but remember it is only until the spring then she will be back where she belongs with us!!

try the wine & expand your palate, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Hay MOM doesn't belong in NY she just stays to long! Nice conversation everybody, I think I will go out and by a bottle of wine got to keep the econ moving in my own small way! hehehe

red said...

Frankly I expected a longer comment from the new HeheRambler...

But seriously hehe, do go and get a bottle and join UJ, UB, GPE, SWM and whom ever else is visiting JP??? and pop open a few Corkers and enjoy the good life...

Then put the pics here!

gpe said...

hmm sounds like a so fla wine tasing event may be in order???

joyce said...

i think its high time the SoFl crew get together and taste some wine and have some food to go along with it.

BTW when my mother returns to SOFl who will be having her over on sat for dinner after mass????
