Fall Flowers and a Wine Tasting

Last night Kim and I hosted a wine tasting; all zinfandels.




Of the five, two winners emerged according to the majority of palates involved:



Surprising because the Starry Night has always been one of our favorites. That's what's nice about a blind tasting, you only have your tastebuds to lead you, not your expectations.
Also the winners were two of the least expensive wines, another lesson of which to take heed; the most expensive aren't always the most preferred.

And some fall flowers from our garden;

Sounds like a lot of fun.
After you tasted the wine did you have to finish off a few more bottles? Just kidding.
Great pictures...love autumn.

What are those, just purple daisies??? I LOVE them!

I love the Deadly Sins label, that's awesome, glad it's as tasty as it is artistic!
