Wine Down Wednesday

S and I took B (I’m really beginning to sound like Gossip Girl) out to Carino’s (a favorite of the Manhattan elite, I’m sure) last night for her birthday.  While I’m not just a huge Italian food fan, as previously discussed I am a huge wine fan.  Half price bottles of wine? Sign me up.

Half-off!

Both regularly priced around $50, at half-off, we were willing to try these wines that we would normally shy away from.  S and B both liked the Ruffino chianti, which was fruity and smooth.  The Russian River chardonnay was a little buttery for me, but complimented my balsamic chicken nicely.  Definite thumbs up for the Caesar salad and bread. Thumbs down on the mini-birthday-tiramisu-in-espresso-cup.
