Sangria, a New Wine from Yellow Tail #Review

It’s no secret I love wine, so you can imagine my excitement when I was chosen to enjoy a Sangria Sunday care package from Yellow Tail wines!

Sangria from Yellow Tail Elaine GriffinThis care package was amazing, and such a surprise. It came with a bottle of Sangria wine, a cute Yellow Tail tote bag, a bottle of nail polish and other manicure/pedicure supplies, and a sweet Sangria scented candle!

It was the perfect care package I have been sorely needing.

This past Sunday, was Mother’s Day, and with near 80-degree temps, was the perfect time to get out on my deck and beautify my freed toes while sipping some of this amazing sangria.

Yellow Tail’s description of the wine is spot on.

Sangria is a delicious mix of citrus and red wine. The aroma is perfumed and enticing with orange rind and red berry notes that splashes onto the palette with a soft, sweet-citrus flavor and hints of spirit.

I would add that it is in no way too sweet. I’m a dry red drinker – like, if it doesn’t make me pucker than I don’t want it drinker. And this, chilled and served over some ice was tasty AND refreshing.

I had such a wonderful Mother’s Day. A perfect mix of hanging with my kids and doing something nice for myself.

To me, Sangria Sunday means relaxing in the sun, and taking some time to remember who I am.

What does Sangria Sunday mean to you?

Disclosure: Yellow Tail did supply me with the wine and care package, but all opinions are my own.

    To me, Sangria Sunday means singing praises to the doctor that tied my tubes.

    That kind of day makes baby making a real possibility!

    Let’s buy a case of wine and have a ladies’ weekend someday. We can call it a work retreat. I will bring a piece of paper and a pen and jot down all the funny stuff we say. It will be legible at first. Eventually just dots and lines. And good memories. Fuzzy memories, but good nevertheless.
