Wine Review: Nothing Wrong with a Mad Housewife

On an occasion, a Mad Housewife is a good thing! No…we are not talking about the cold shoulder and the burnt fruitcake. The Merlot Mad Housewife by Mad Housewife Cellars in Manteca California is a ripe fruity medium-bodied wine that maintains a smooth disposition despite its quick legs and burgundy red cheeks. With plumb, blackberries and vanilla mixed with a touch of spice you will find the taste pleasing.

Their philosophy matches their wild style.  “Above all else, wine should be fun, relaxing, and something you can afford to look forward to at the end of each and every day. This is your time. Time to enjoy a moment to yourself. A moment without the madness.”  To them, every homemaker may need a little time off.

It s body and taste is something that would go well with a little greasier food. This is not to mask the quality but to complement their offering. Think in terms of steak, bacon, hamburgers and kabobs. It is a backyard or everyday type wine at a wholesale price.

Their Merlot wine has won a couple of local awards giving testimony to the quality of the value for around $10.
