5000 Yards of Wine

We’re counting the days until my next infusion. I’m so ready for the side effects because at least I can estimate how long they’re going to last. With the heat and the regrowing of B-cells, I’ve been pretty much stuck in the house since Tuesday. I may be a little itchy/ annoyed/ bored/ exasperated/ crabby.. you name it, I got it.

On the bright side, there are 5000 yards of yarn and a crochet hook.

And a lot of this:

So yeah, I kind of like Moscato wines. I had 3 bottles at home and nothing better to do. I bought a fourth bottle so I could really tie one on even out the regular and sparkling. I had to be fair like that. *ahem*

Salt of the Earth, Flore de Moscato 2013 This was new to me. It was very sweet and heavy. It had a honey like flavor. I went all red neck on the second (and third) glass and added ice to thin it out a little. It paired well with my Green Tea Smoked Duck.

Beviamo Moscato d’Asti 2010 In contrast, this was bubbly, light, and very floral. I thought of lavender when I first tasted it. I’ve had this one before, but I never noticed the floral bit. Of course, I’ve never had two bottles of wine in one night before either. With this one, on the third glass, I went all so-phis-ti-cated and added orange juice. It went well with the pork fried rice.

Los Pinos Moscato 2012: I love wines from this vineyard and they are from an East Texas winery.  (My favorites are All My X’s and Sweet Rodeo Red) There is no traditional Moscato sweetness with this one. It actually has a little burn going down and a spicy aftertaste.  The smell going in, the dryness, and the taste remaining on your palate remind me more of a Chardonnay. I had high expectations for this one. I have no pairing, but I bet it would be great for cooking.

Villa Alena Moscato d’Asti 2013 Sweet and a little spicy. There wasn’t as much bubbly as the   , but it worked. This was my favorite of the weekend. I could drink two of these at a time.

Ummm. Ran out of things to say about wine. Four bottles in two days. Considering I haven’t had a drink since patient day last year, I think I did good.  (Yeah, I keep forgetting about the annual Lemon Drop Martini thing.)

So, Happy Sunday?

p.s. When did bottles of wine start only giving out three glasses per bottle?

p.p.s. No, I didn’t share with Texas.

p.p.p.s. No one got drunk in the making of this blog post. Not even a little buzz. I tried. I have no idea either.

  1. What are you drinking today? I still think you should talk to a certain drinky-knitter and see what she drinks because she’s sort of famous for her partying…

    Speaking of… how’s the hooking going?

    I love you

  2. I am glad there is a treatment for you, and I hope the side effects speed away soon.

    So, I’m curious about the 5000 yards of hooking. Anything good? xoxo
