So I’m a day late on my Wine Wednesday post but with good reason. Last night we were supposed to go to a wine tasting event at Natali Vineyards in Cape May County. However the lovely weather we have been having in Southern New Jersey made the event which was outdoors a wash out. I had wanted to suggest one of the wines I would have tried so I was planning on holding off on posting till afterwards. Alas no wine was had last night. But over the weekend I did have a great red wine, which will be this weeks pick.
So this weeks wine is Gascon Malbec 2010. It’s an Argentina wine and Argentina is known for it’s great Malbec’s. This wine will not give you heart burn which is a huge plus since post baby I still get heartburn. John loves this wine as well. So unlike last weeks pick this weeks is very guy friendly. We had it with sushi a few months ago and I thought it went well. But I love it so much I would drink it with anything. I think it was about 13.99 a bottle which is working it’s way toward the higher end of what I like to spend but it’s worth the splurge!
And my reason for whining is…. My in-laws dog. My in-laws have a friendly older dog named Buddy who they insist on taking everywhere they go. The dog has hip problems and an anxiety issue. He is a great dog and I love dogs but he is not in the shape to play with my dog Bailey. Every time he is around Bailey he runs away. Bailey is too high energy for this older dog yet my MIL insists on bringing him every time she comes over. Which means Bailey starts barking incessantly as soon as she pulls up. Then Buddy comes in and starts whining and wheezing really loud and runs to get away from Baily. Bailey runs after him full speed hoping to play. I know have 2 uncontrollable dogs running around my less than 1000 square foot home. As if that’s not enough all the commotion always leads to Jackson crying. John has asked twice in recent days for them not to bring the dog but my mother in law keeps saying, “Buddy likes to go for a ride”. He’s a dog he likes to lick his ass too, he will get over it. Stop bringing the dog end of story. Every time I see that dog my blood pressure rises. On top of that they have banned Bailey from their home. Why must they bring their dog to mine? The puppy wars, my reason for whining this week. Please feel free to whine in the comments.
