Nah, I know what sangria is. I like sangria.

This was different. It had like spices and shit in it and it was served warm. Mulled wine, maybe? Something like that
Yeah, you didn't mention it was served warm earlier. That's almost definitely mulled wine. It's pretty popular, but I don't care for it. I try wine every few months or so to see if my tastes have changed again, but it's still bitter. Like I said earlier, Malbec is pretty good.

I can tolerate some whites, but I've never had a red that I enjoyed

Have you tried Malbec or Red Zinfandel? If not I'd say those might be good bets as there are a lot of reds I'm not so crazy about, but those two types are generally pretty good.

I've become a virtual teetotaler over time. I'm a coffee and tea fiend now.

When I did like wine, favorites included Yago Sangrai


Riunite Lambrusco


Trader Joe's Joseph Handler brand


Canei white (way back when as it is not found around here)

I was in Portugal recently and went to a tasting for Porto. Really sweet, I didn't like it all. I got buzzed off of the equivalent of one glass, and think my liver isn't working right.

I really like Chianti, Nero D'Avola, Bourdeaux's and Malbecs. Also had a lovely chilled sparkling Shiraz.

Some Rieslings. Love Sangria,

I was standing in line at the grocer's today.

Guy in front of me had 2 cartons of wine...24 bottles all up.

Jesus Christ the total of the bill came to $2800!

I can only stand wine when it’s so sweet it might as well be something else anyway.

I’d rather drink shitty hipster craft beers than wine.
