Friday Wine Buzz 

Actually, their two sweet wines are pretty tasty. The Stonewall Mist made from Vidal and Cayuga grapes is enjoyable. The sweeter Mirage Blush is made from the Niagara grape with its distinctive Welch's grape taste, but it's OK, too.

I found the 1997 cabernet sauvignon a good wine for Friday Cheers. Get yourself a sausage sandwich, smothered in onions and peppers, sit back in your chair with the cup holder, listen to the band and munch and slurp. These wines won't win any awards, nor would I knock myself out serving them at home. They should just update the chardonnay and cabernet to about the 2000 vintage and everything should be all right.
