cheap wine made me sick...

trolley | Sep 4, 2010 08:05 AM

i bought this Overlake Sauvignon Blanc $5.99 or $4.99 at Trader Joes. The first glass I drank was ok. The next night, i poured myself a 4oz glass (i know, a bit anal but i'm watching my weight so i'm measuring everything) and the wine tasted ok but started to get really difficult to drink towards the end of the glass with a really abrasive alcohol taste. it gave me a knot in my stomach and when i went to bed an hour, later my breath was really heavy with alcohol like i drank night train or something.

is it b/c the wine was so cheap? i'm assuming cheaper wines use cheaper processes or ingredients. am i correct? i like drinking wine but don't know much about it. just for the record i had a full dinner and had the wine afterwards like a dessert.
