Wine Love, Love Wine

10 Feb

Okay I just needed to post some sexy wine. Because Valentine’s Day. Which I will be spending on a platonic double date with my best friend and a married couple we hang out with. People surely see us and assume that we are two couples on a date together by nah. My bestie and I are platonic.

I can’t wait. V-day plans with friends are the best. But being friends does not preclude the four of us drinking sexy wines and eating sexy foods and generally having a beautiful time because we all love each other.

So ZIN. I’m a Zinfandel nut. Luv Love LURVE Zin.

Got this in the mail free incidentally but this is like one of ten bottles I feel like speaking of.

And okay this is a Zin/petite sirah/tannat/teroldego blend.

If you are a wine snob shut up. It’s okay. If you judge me talking of this you won’t like it as you’ve decided not to. This wine is not Chateauneuf-du-Pape and shouldn’t be it is just yummy and silky and zippy and fucking-A why not sexy.

Also sexy is not being worried about money. And this wine will not concern you. Have I had wines I would put…oh in another level? Maybe. But whatever. I first encountered Dark Horse at a fave LA restaurant, Mess Hall. That’s suitable pedigree to me.

Then on the podcast we asked peeps for their favorite grocery store wine and Dark Horse came up. Then this bottle showed up and I cracked it and decided it was a wine to share with loved ones.

Dark Horse Double Down Red Blend

Yay. So friend V-day notes. This wine is overwhelming at first and then you want more.

Tasting notes let us go: deep ruby purple to the eye with thick slow tears. Dry, medium acid, medium tannins, medium plus alcohol. Voluptuous body. Dark cherries, raisins, leather, licorice, baking spices and dirt.

Yum dirt.

Finish is medium. It goes on a wee bit but is consistent.

Yum. I’m into it. I’m into affordable numminess.

Love. Sexy full-bodied love.

love you too
