Mmmmmm, coffee, cigars, touch of fig, a little peppery spice.
That’s all I wanted tonight. Coffee, cigars and spice. The perfect merlot.
This merlot breaks my $10 rule, but rules were meant to be broken, right? When I buy a wine at a winery, I expect to pay more. Not because wines cost more at their source, but because I tend to taste better wines at wineries than I try in the stores.
A few weeks ago I went to Tahoe Ridge Winery in Gardnerville, Nev. I’ve tried their wine before, but this was my first time at the winery, newly relocated from nearby Genoa, Nev. Someday soon when I have more energy and motivation, I’ll write about the winery’s innovations in growing desert-hardy grapes. Right now I’m tired and am content to just drink a fabulous merlot ($18 at the winery).
Ok, I admit, this blog post sucks. But ya know, sometimes that’s what you get. A figgy, peppery, cigar-y merlot paired with an effortless, mindless blog post. YOU try writing something meaningful after doing two loads of laundry, cooking dinner, doing dishes, bathing two kids and reading three bedtime stories. Fig and pepper. That’s all I’ve got tonight. And I’m ok with that.
