Flip Flop Moscato

Wine: Flip Flop Moscato

Life is full of firsts… first steps, first days of school, first dates, first kisses. Somewhere in that continuum lies the first bottle of wine.

I would not have considered buying this bottle of wine had I not run into the wine guy at the grocery store. (I also would not have expected the grocery store to have a knowledgable wine guy, but sure enough – this guy moonlighting in the liquor department had actually been running a local wine store for 20 years).

My assumption was that a bottle of wine that cost <$10 would not be good, and I didn't want to waste my time, money, or newbie wine palate on cheap wine. You know what happens when we assume.... I explained my admittedly thin observations of my wine tastes to the guy, and he recommended this Flip Flop Moscato, as well as Sutter Home's Sweet Red. I took the two home with me and tried the Moscato first (as I was still dubious about my ability to enjoy a red wine). Those of you on Facebook that evening can attest to the degree to which I enjoyed this bottle of Moscato. It was sweet and simple and didn't leave me with the cringing aftertaste. I can also report that it goes very well with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. There's another bottle of it in my wine rack now!
