I don’t have to work tomorrow, so it’s a good time to celebrate. However, I’m slightly weary from being in the sun all day, so my celebration will consist of this entry and episodes of M*A*S*H, the best tv show ever.
Today’s tasting is the Hedges C. M. S. 2008, where C. M. S. stands for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. It’s out of Columbia Valley in Washington, which is a fine wine making region.
I smell mushrooms, darkness, cherries, and dark chocolate. There’s something in there that’s tingling my nose hairs. I hope that something is tasty. It’s kinda mentholy. (My girlfriend gets darkness, cherries, and chocolates in the nose.)
It’s a fat, juicy wine. Fat and juicy like the gristle or fat from a steak. That’s more in the middle of the tongue.
It’s got white pepper on the finish.
It’s a big wine that probably does need a big, fat, gristly steak. As a nighttime drinker and a vegetarian, I don’t know when I’d drink this. I’m sure some will love it, and I can understand why, but it’s not for me. That is, I’ll drink it, I wouldn’t turn it down if offered to me, but I probably won’t get this again.//
