I am by no means a wine expert and usually will drink whatever wine someone offers me. Does that make me a lush? Geez, I sound like a lush.
So anyway, our local chain grocery store carries Mad Housewife wines. I bought one to take to Des Moines last weekend, but we drank something else instead, so back into the basement "wine cellar" it went. Bud and I decided to have wine with our supper last night, so I pulled out the Mad Housewife to try. It's fantastic! Very smooth, tasty, and no nasty aftertaste. We had the Merlot, but they have other reds, too. It's a California wine, and I certainly will add this to my "go to" wine list.
It's also very affordable--under $10.00 a bottle, so stock up for the holidays! It would also make a great gift for your wine drinking friends, along with some chocolates and some cheese. After all, housewives need to take a break from the overwhelming housekeeping duties they have--and drinking a glass of wine leaning against the dishwasher would be ok, as far as I'm concerned. It would also be ok to lay down on the couch, hit the remote, and watch say Patsy and Edina! Sweetie, darling, go to the store and begin your Mad Housewife day of leisure now. Only if it's after noon, though. Unless you really are Pasty or Edina.
