Official Product Testing

I read about this wine packaged in a mini-barrel in a magazine and
thought it sounded right up my alley: 20 five ounce glasses of Red
Truck red wine that stays fresh for 40 days for less than $30. Since
I'm the only person who drinks wine around here, it's a perfect

I happened upon it today in the liquor store next to Costco where I
was going with Numbers 3 and 4 to buy diapers (and $100 worth of
snacks we really didn't need). Which explains why I need a barrel of
red wine in the first place.

Someone had to do it, so I am selflessly conducting official product
testing. It tastes good. In my expert-mother-of four-boys-non-wine-
snob opinion, really good. As good as any other economical priced wine
I've had. I think it would be great for a party, girls' get together
like Bunco or even as a gift.

The real test will be if I can make it last for 40 days.

Another day, another story,

That is so big of you, taking one for the team and product testing this on your own. I would say share, but that might dilute the findings.

(I've just made a mental note to go scope this out and see if I can find it somewhere in Miami tomorrow...)

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who takes small children to the liquor store!

Hear Hear! I just bought my first 4-pack of wine singles Wednesday. 'Tis genius. I will have to check this mini barrel out....

Wine in a barrel? Who woulda thunk it? I love it! You've opened a new door for me, my friend. I think I'll invest in this product based on your rec!

BTW, the Mommies, Esquire are official fans of this blog!!!!!

Alas, I pour my last glass from the Red Truck barrel almost exactly 1 month later. It is my professional conclusion that the length of time this barrel lasts varies depending on mood, stress and other extenuating circumstances.
