Blind wine review I

Ok so it wasn't going to be very long from when the idea popped into our heads (or rather Iain's head) and until we poured a glass of mystery wine...

Wine No 1 tastes a bit funny to me. To be honest this could be due to the slight paranoia I'm experiencing knowing that there are some pretty crappy wine in our selection. Or it could be due to the wine being far too cold still. Or, possibly - maaaybe it has something to do with the fact that I just ate a fistful of lightly salted crispy jalapeños that Jayashankar left at our place last week. Funny this times means... a little burnt, a little plain, a little like... watered out port in fact. My guess: A slightly on the old side Oregon Pinot Noir. The correct answer? A Napa Valley Cab Sav (C&B 2006 -  see embarrassing pictures below). Iain, who has a slightly better developed palate is quite pleased with the wine and predicts that it will taste even better tomorrow evening. We shall have to wait and see.

Look at Mr Cab posing with Miss Flower... Guys... Get a room..!

PS yes I would very much like to get a macro lens for Christmas thank you :-)

  1. This was a good wine! And it was nicer the second day. Though there may have been an interaction with the Jalapeno-crisp factor.
