Do you like merlot,malbac,cabernet,sweet red,shiraz,syrah?

Ladies if you haven't tried it,you must! Chocolate Shop Wine! Is AMAZING! It's a red wine infused with dark chocolate its soooo yummy! It's a treat in itself! If you were to have a glass of merlot with a chocolate candy bar on the side! And its still red like,red wine. As soon as you open it you can smell the chocolate&red wine combo! They other ones too Chocolate covered strawberry&Cream de cocoa wines! BUT the chocolate shop is the shiznit! Trust me! They run about $9-12 around here! Its a good desert wine,just by itself!

Have you tried malbac? Its soooo good! It's like a mixture of merlot,cab,shiraz all in one! Its amazing! I had my husband try it one day after I demo it. Its cool when I demo wine/champagne I get to take left overs. But anywho DH fell in love so we grab malbac when the mood hits! So one day we were out eating and DH says to waiter get us a bottle of malbac. Then we are sitting there and he says I didn't ask him how much? Girl he bought us a $55 bottle of malbac!! LOL We were crackin' up! DH was like oh well! But shit that was "cheaper" of the three on the menu! LOL

I like Merlot, Cab, and Shiraz ( I love dark red dry wine)

Hate sweet, but would drink it first over white/blush wine

LOL and yes I have tried Malbec, I know its like $20 dollars here. But they always charge double if not more at the restaurant.  BYOB...LOL

I have bought an expensive bottle of Merlot a couple of times, but my favorite is Charles Shaw ($2 buck Chuck) @ Trader Joe's.  Part of the story to why his wine is so cheap is because of a bitter divorce lol

LOL On base we get wines for $2.99-$8.99! Yes its not cheap wines! They'll have expensive wines down that low! Most of their wines they never bring it it past $11.99! Some wines will always be $15-20 mark there! But still cheaper than off base,plus no tax! I hate&love at the same time when I demo wine b/c they always have $2.99 wines and I'm pushing something that cost anywhere from $5.99-15.99! Ugh! I get creative I say its "on sale"! Because sometimes its not! Those distributor are so out of touch,yes that want their ish to sell but wine at a certain doesn't hold water! Like most people don't buy wine during Cinco de Mayo! lol! But I stand there for 3-4hrs. I'm still getting paid! And its fun!

 Girl we're from the same cloth....I don't drink sweet wine.  However before I'd drink a sweet red I'll drink a chardonnay or a white wine....
