in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day one

Tres Picos Borsao Garnacha 2004

Tres Picos Borsao Garnacha 2004. One of the juiciest

I often go on my own imaginary week-long wine tours. For instance, one week I drank nothing but Washington state Merlots, because I think Washington makes the best Merlots. Another time I drank nothing but California wines. I had a hypothesis that all wines from California taste exactly as they should. For example, if you get a Californian Cabernet Sauvignon, it will taste exactly as a Cab should. My test proved that hypothesis to be sometimes correct.

Over the course of this week, I will try to find the juiciest wine.

I went to Marketview Liquors today because I also wanted to try wines I have not had. My favorite place to get wines in Monroe Country, NY, is at Mahan’s Liquors in Brockport. It’s has a great wine selection and a wonderful staff. I love it there. However, I have had every bottle of wine there that’s under $20, and often twice and some of them hundreds of time, like Red Diamond Merlot – my favorite everyday wine. Mmmm.

To start my tour this time, I also got a new corkscrew. It was time. The best corkscrews are the double-hinged corkscrews, sometimes referred to as a waiter’s corkscrew. They just work great. The one I got this time was the “Rabbit Barware 2-Step Waiters’ Corkscrew.” I haven’t used it yet, but I like the feel of the handle.

My tour will begin, most likely, on Saturday. Allons-y.//
