Are you going through “Jennifer in wine terms” withdrawl?!?! Well… Dell and I had some issues and my computer has been out of commission along with my whole hard drive. Before you ask.. “did you back it up?” … I will say “yes, I did … through Dell’s online Back-up service”. However, just because I did that, doesn’t mean it’s actually there to restore! … guess I should have asked more questions…
So… with all that said, I thought it appropriate to do a review of “Mad Housewife” wine!
I have to say… I was the gullible one that was drawn to this wine because of the catchy name and picture. Many people wonder, how truly, can a good wine be in a catchy name/label wine? Well… let me tell you… pretty darn good!!
Here is what’s on the back of the label that I’d like to share:
“Somewhere near the cool shadows of the laundry room.
Past the litter box and between the plastic yard toys.
This is your time.
Time to enjoy a moment to yourself.
A moment without the madness.
The dishes can wait.
Dinner be damned.
Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon”
When I first opened this wine, it was sharp and dry … and not in a good way. In fact it hit me in such a way my first thought was “Is this the after thought of the left over cabs they decided to bottle and throw a funny label on?” … so I set it down and let it breath… it did get better — but I still found it tart and sharp. That is ….
…until day 2! Since I left it open all night (yes, it survived in my home through one night) I was pleasantly surprised the next! So, I feel this wine may need to breath a bit before you toss it around in your glass and drink up! Apparently, I did not wait long enough before drinking it.
It’s smooth and light and not as tart after it has some time without it’s cork … it’s very fruity and delightful. A great every day wine to try!
Mad Housewife wine is definately a Marketing plan in full effect — one look at the website and you can see the direction this wine and label are trying to acheive. YES … I will be considering a few purchases from the site itself. Although a housewife I am FAR from …. I do enjoy the rebellion of the whole housewife concept. They have receipes on the site as well!
Thank you Mad HouseWife Cellars for your contributions and please everyone …. zin a little for a cause!!
