Why do we do this to ourselves? That is, tune into what we know is just going to get us aggravated, disappointed and in need of guzzling a serious amount of wine.
So I’m just going to cut to the chase. After watching last night’s 60 minutes interview, I’ve come up with my top 5 wines to get you through the whining Trump. For those that haven’t seen it, Lesley Stahl’s less than 30 minute interview with Trump managed to deliver such a endorsement to his splendor that women around the country collectively rolled their eyes.
Here they are in order of relevancy to all the feelings right now.
Ruby-red color with rich and opulent aromas of black currant, crushed blackberry, cinnamon and pepper spices. Tightly woven texture, fine grain tannins and a long, persistent finish, this Cabernet Sauvignon is exceptionally expressive, powerful and smooth all at once. Treat yourself to this rich Cab alongside a steak and decadent chocolate treats. Retails for $12.
It’s not actually a wine, however I immediately thought of these Vinepair stickers after watching last night’s spectacle. One that particularly sticks out is “You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Glass.” Wouldn’t it be fun to slap the sticker on your wine of choice for the night, or give it to a friend as a gift before heading over to watch the Midterm coverage (if you’re into that sort of thing). The package of 26 individual stickers retails for $36.
Not your typical prince charming frog here with Winemaker’s Jean-Claude Mas’s concept. 🙂 55% 15-25 year-old Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% 16-25 year-old. Deep red color with aromas of ripe cherry and strawberry mixed with spicy black pepper and vanilla. Well balanced with a long finish. Best paired with cheeses and barbecue meats. Retails for $10.
I absolutely LOVE what Meg Murray is doing, on her quest to ensure we have more women at the table. She is committed to creating progressive wines that help get women to the table as leaders and tastemakers (Did you know that only 22% of public service leadership positions are held by women worldwide??) Plus, 20% of our net profits will be donated to organizations and causes that help drive their mission. How much would you love to sit back and watch our leaders of the free world sip a glass of the “Progress Pink” Rosé or “Pave the Way” Chardonnay! Her wines retail anywhere from $15-36 a bottle.
I had to include Michael David’s famous Freakshow since this is the life I feel we live in this day and age. Ripe and oaky, this is a full-bodied wine with sweet fruits like blackberry and black cherry flavors. You’ll also get a dose of oak spices like cinnamon and a nice dark chocolate finish. Pair this wine with chicken wings or red meat for the full flavorful experience. Retails for $20.
