REVIEWER: b.beamer

Let me set the scene. It is my birthday but, not just any birthday, I am turning 30. And as I enter the dirty thirties I am nostalgic about birthdays of past. I immediately thought about the fun of Chuck E. Cheese. Yes!!!! Tokens !!! I always loved a good game of skeetball and who doesn’t remember the fun of counting tickets, pizza, and hitting defenseless groundhogs.

DRINK OF THE WEEK: oops – Cabernet Franc Carmenere

ORIGIN: Chile

Reviewer: Becks

The wine was a steal at less than 10.00 at Target.  I am most definately going to grab a few bottles to have as my “beamer table wine”.  It’s a nice simple taste that goes with everything.  I’m not a wine specialist but I do know what wine I can drink on a regular basis – this wine makes the list.  I would bring it to a dinner party or drink a glass alone on my roof.with dinner any night of the week.  Tasty!

The “oops” website suggest that we pair this wine with ” full-bodied meat and game dishes, and other hearty fare such as gratins, baked pasta, ragouts, vegetable strews, and soups”.  BUT, Katy and I paired this wine with dark chocolate and strawberries – fantastic.  I thouroughly enjoyed the wine and the food.

On a side note – the packaging is brilliant and fresh.
