Blush Wines

* Wine Regions
Blush wines range from those huge jugs of Carlo Rossi, Paul Masson, and Gallo (which are sweet, possessed of a disturbing aftertaste or undertone which suggests something rotten and decaying, and IMHO entirely undrinkable—have a beer instead) to the Beringer White Zinfandels of the world. In other words, the range is from awful to acceptable. 

These wines make good picnic fare (burgers and hot dogs, the same sort of thing you might have a cola with), but they generally do not go well with dinner, being too sweet to complement even the spiciest food. If you drink blush wines, you are better off sticking with 750ml bottles that don't have screwtops. Better yet, try a Gewurztraminer or Riesling instead.
