First was a lovely Petite Shirah from Boogle Vineyards of California. (the following is to be read in a sexy radio voice) Deeply inky, this wine coats the glass and lingers before the first sip has been taken. Heady aromas of boysenberries and blackberries headline the entry, while flavors of wild blueberries steal the show. Full-bodied and concentrated, seductive juniper and anise tangle with coffee and leather tones as the wine’s finish lingers on stage. Enduring and enthralling, this wine is perfectly suited for an encore.
And then to be fair I also graced the table with a charming little white wine, Danzante Pinot Grigio,
It's bouquet offers delicate floral notes followed by intense aromas of fresh citrus fruit, hints of pineapples and papaya. A crisp vein of tasty acidity adds to the fine balance of all of its components. A very leisurely finish ends on a subtle note of crisp fruit.
" A crisp vein of tasty acidity." I want THAT little diddy on my tombstone for sure. And is that dress not the best? But even with those two most perfect choices available what do you think my lower piddle class family finished off in about ten seconds time?
The answer, a bottle hidden in the back of my frig. for who knows how long, specifically this screw-off top atrocity:
Boone's Farm. Nectar of the Sods.
