bottle two.

This one wasn't as great as the previous, but it's helping me become aware of whats out there. This was a bottle of Barefoot merlot. This had the flavor of a dark berry infused with a hint of chocolate, so said the description on the bottle. It was a little bitter and tart for my taste, but maybe that's what they were aiming for. This bottle would goes great with a cigarette... ha. And it seems that the longer it stayed on my dresser, after having been opened 3 days prior, the better it tasted? I don't know if it was just me, or it really did work that way. And so the final verdict for this bottle, 2 out of 5 stars. Probably wouldn't buy this bottle anymore and considering that it was an $8.00 bottle this time, makes me all the more not to get it. I'm working my way up the food chain though! Hope this was somewhat helpful.

  1. I have never been a fan of barefoot wine. i found it to be cheap over priced grape piss.
    i would rather pay 13 for a whole box than drink barefoot.

  30. Man you should be selecting better wines . That wine is "dogkiller" or "maddog" .

    Better wines are not only about taste and smell . Also they offer good amount of antioxidants

  33. Merlot is kinda heavy wine. You should try some othere grapes, unless you drink this with a meal.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I kinda wanted to start brewing my own alcohol, making wine sounds interesting too.
