The conversation turned to crazy when our guest said “can you believe he wouldn’t consider a reverse vasectomy for me”. We had one of our dear friends over and, well the conversation always gets nuts to put it plainly, no pun intended. It was a lot of fun to be honest, by the way, ladies if you’re on a dating site and it asks the gentleman if he wants children and he says “Not sure…. That means” hell no and I am not going to get a reverse vasectomy” and “no I don’t want any more children”. What does this have to do with wine? I am getting to that! After that conversation I was ready for a glass of something actually anything at that point!
D. (my beautiful wife) had made a few appetizers to have as a meal. She always has to make everything look like its on display. She took Dark leaf lettuce laid it on a platter as decoration and she put the fresh shrimp and cocktail sauce and sliced lemons, it looked wonderful she brought out steaming hot golden brown breaded shrimp. She had made a mixture of Mayonnaise, Country Dijon mustard and wasabi, what a great delicious dipping sauce. We also had a home made fruit salad and French bagget with goat cheese and fresh basil and roasted red bell paper lightly drizzled in olive oil. As a side dish we had marinated cherry tomatoes with avocado, dill and green onions.
Now for the wine and boy was I ready for it “just kidding”. We had had this wine a few times this summer and always liked it with BBQ chicken or grilled salmon. Sauvignon Blanc’s in general are known to have more of a zing or punch to them. This wine will not disappoint, it comes from the Paso Robles central coast winery, actually a Beringer Blass estate winery. This wine has a light grapefruit, citrus, fresh, clean and pleasing taste with a wonderful bouquet of fresh cut flowers. Even if you’re spontaneous and say hey lets just pick up some “Chinese” tonight. This wine will go with it fine. It paired with everything we had tonight perfect. This wine will set you back about $10.00.
To our Guest, thank you for the Orchid, and your great company! We always have so much fun with you.
We rate this wine (Good)
