Wine Wednesday – KUKKULA

Wine Wednesday and I decided to continue my Kukkula trend.  I love Kukkula’s wines and really love that the vineyard is an easy drive from Los Angeles.

In honor of Twitter’s IPO, presenting Kukkula’s I.P.O. wine.  Such a simple drinking wine with subtle complexity.  71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Zinfandel and 11% Syrah.

C’mon, of course I was going to love it!  Deep rich purple, not quite inky.  I tasted cherries with an earthiness I like.   Hmmm, dirt!

It wasn’t as seductive as Lothario but I wasn’t looking to be seduced tonight.  I wanted to be quietly entertained.  Some times we want a Lothario; some times we want Homer Simpson.  Kukkula’s I.P.O. satisfied all my low-key needs.

Wine Wednesday – KUKKULA winery in Paso Robles

Have you been to Paso Robles in California?  Have you been to Kukkula winery in Paso Robles?  If your answer is no to either of these, you need to head to Kukkula winery in Paso Robles!

It’s a small, family-owned winery honoring the owner’s Finnish heritage.  My first visit was a surprise — the wines tasty and fun-loving — and I joined the wine club.

Tonight’s wine is Kukkula’s Lothario.  Isn’t that seductive and sexy?  It tastes sexy, too!

What can I say.  It was easy to drink, tasted delicious, especially as I watch the Boston Red Sox win the World Series.

Is it the wine or the Boston Red Sox?  Both are damn good.
