Barefoot and Pregnant.

24 weeks into this pregnancy,  drinking is really off limits.  However, all the research i've read, a glass of wine here or there is nothing even slightly frowned upon in the medical field.

With that said, the wine i would be choosing is Barefoot.  I wrote a blog about their Mascoto back a LONG time ago (here).  I would still agree with everything i wrote back then, but my pallet has defintly changed quite a bit since then.  If i were to choose a barefoot today, it would be Malbec.   Malbec has a nice flavor to it.  While merlot and chardonnays tend to be bland to my taste buds, Malbec has a spice that will keep your mouth entertained with every sip.  Perfect at room temperature, It has enough flavor that even sweet wine drinkers would consider this wine after tasting it chilled.
Besides the Malbec, Barefoot tends to make decent wine all around.  It is a basic wine, nothing too over the top, but even experienced wine drinkers won't turn their nose at barefoot (most the time).  It also have a perfect price tag in my book : )  Ranging 5-15 (depending on location),  It's quality would never give away the low price tag. 

Their website describes it as : "Barefoot Malbec is a plush red wine of epic proportions. Big juicy flavors of blackberry and currant set sail on a gorgeous gust of vanilla, caramel and toasted oak."
I would agree with every inch of this description.

Now that i've dissected my opinion of their wine, i will have to add that i like this company in general.   I received an email from one of their reps a couple weeks ago.  He just wanted to introduce himself and let me know that he enjoyed the blogs that i wrote about wine.   I thought it was nice that he took the time just to say hi for no real reason: )  Of course, their wine quality is way more important than their social standing, but it's always nice when the products i like are backed by quality people.  

With that said, I know i will never be able to party like i did at one time, but i am looking forward to being able to have a drink with friends or with dinner just for the heck of it.

With that said  * "Please drink responsibly"  : )
