Oh la la!
Just when I think my palate has gone off wine (how the hell is that possible?), I go rogue. Opening 4 bottles in a night –
I’ve long suspected I’m a Francophile — after all I’ve gone to Paris for new year’s for almost 20 years! — and my wine tasting proves it!
** 2006 Domus Aurea Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon — As much as I love Chile, I didn’t love this wine. But it was first in my tasting and my taste buds may not have been ‘on alert.’
** 2006 Wattle Creek Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon — liked this. Things were starting to look up! Finally, an inexpensive wine I liked.
It was the 3rd bottle that grabbed me for a big sloppy kiss! A French Bordeaux, bien sur!
Now that I know my palate is being a picky “biatch,” I’ll continue to drink on!
NOTE: No bottles of wine were poured down the drain in the writing of this blog. Discarded bottles are given to a co-worker, Jacob. He drinks most anything happily. Team Jacob!
