Paired With Knives

Plump fruity pleasantness flashes momentarily across the screen but is the kitten on the highway helplessly staring down the doom of a semi-truck of heat. Nutty parmesan cheese and marinara texture attempt to affront the eye-watering and nose-hair-curling which barely allows steaming piles of fruit concentrate and Ben-Gay mint to poke through. Decanting doesn’t help.  Shrill bark-shaving bitterness dominates the mouthfeel as your gums recoil from the evisceration and concentrations of shallow fruit-soda usher the bros into the reserve room. A textbook 2-digit IQ California wine.  After a week in France this wine is a stellar shock. That poor kitten.
