Flip Flop Wines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay Review and Flippin Good Deeds Challenge

to each, their own: seven individualistic wines
     Back in July, I was given the lucky opportunity to sample/review wine from a great company Flip Flop Wines.  Since then I am hooked on the brand.  Now not only are Flip Flop Wines inexpensive so that the average person can enjoy them but they are made by a company that gives back to the community.  Everyone who knows me knows I believe we need to do everything we can to protect our children and planet today so that there can be a tomorrow for everyone.  Flip Flop Wines is partnered with Soles4Souls, a non profit organization that helps put shoes on over 100,000 feet of children who aren't fortunate to have the most basic protection.  They have also supported several other charities such as Friends of the Forest, Netting Nations, and Habitat for Humanity.  Amazing.  This time around I received three different wines - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and a Chardonnay.

     Now, this isn't my first time trying a Chardonnay but I've been so hooked on the Flip Flop Wines Reisling that I haven't even given any others a chance.  Although Chardonnays are a dryer white wine I love the sweet taste of the pineapple in it.  Of course chilled, this wine goes perfectly with any salad which is what we tried it with along with several other finger foods.  I recently had a women only party night in with all of my fellow mommies and we all thoroughly enjoyed sipping on our glasses of Chardonnay while munching on our vege, cheese, and meat platters.

     Now if you read my last review you will know I am just not a fan of red wines at all!  I try and try different kinds and for some reason my little taste buds just can't get used to them.  However, I did get two reds this time that I had to give a try so first with the Merlot.  I'm sorry but this was just too dry and bitter for me.  It had a very strong plum flavor.  I even chilled the bottle to about 26 degrees and drank a glass with our grilled burgers the other day.  On a positive note my good friend who loves reds drank the Merlot at our party and thought it had fantastic flavor.  She thought it went very well with vege, cheese, and meat platters!

     On to the Cabernet Sauvignon.  This was actually not as bad for me as most of the reds I've tried in the past.  Funny thing is I tend to lean towards the sweeter wines and this is one of the driest of all.  I loved the blackberry and cherry flavor it had to it.  I know someone out there is going to kill me for doing this but I actually mixed my glass with a fruit juice which made this actually very enjoyable!  I chilled this wine as well to 26 degrees and paired with a spaghetti casserole.  Again even though it was dry, the berries were powerful enough to make it a fruity delight!

     I have to encourage you as well while you are reading this review to check out the Flippin Good Deeds Challenge.  The flippin’ good deeds Challenge is a program for communities to clean out their closets and donate gently worn footwear.  Sign up, collect as many shoes as you can and share your “flippin’ good deeds” and experiences from September 6, 2011 to November 15, 2011 for a chance to win!  All you need to do is share with me so I can blog about it for you (if you are not a blogger).  They will send you the boxes and materials as you log your amounts weekly.  The top 5 blogger's will be entered into the final.  I would love to win and reward one or all of my generous readers with a fantastic prize.
