Just for eclipse fun

21 Aug

Okay so this came as a free sample with eclipse sunglasses that apparently I could have sold for the price of my…I don’t know…my Vitamix? Maybe.


And because because I doubted I’d be into boozing it up during the eclipse (the peak at 10:20am) so guess what?!! I opened it up the night before.

Apothic 2015 Dark

So here’s the deal: this is the dress I had in high school. I was goth. The dress was from a chain store but crushed velvet and fit my dark persona.

As it is with this wine. Apothic is a big brand. By dark.

I can’t fault the tasting notes. Pretty much all cocoa powder and blackberries and maybe cherry preserves. That’s it. Acid is low. Alcohol is way higher than it feels: 14%. Tannins…light plus and velvety.

But mostly this is that dress that suited your goth life on high school and might still if you safe a goth with a sweet tooth.

The chocolate notes are the most prominent.

Okay so fuck it let’s go wear goggles and stare at the grandeur of Madame Nature and her eclipse. 

And sip some cocoa wine. Why not?
