So Ashley was reading our favorite spaceship mechanic’s blog (aka Jewel Staite from Firefly/Serenity) about hosting a wine tasting party with wines bought based on their labels.
She quickly called me, Tricia, Juanita, and Tracy and told us to come over with a bottle of wine that we had bought only because of the prettiness of the label.
Once at Ashley’s, we all got a pen, note cards, and some good sized wine glasses and started the tasting/judging.
p.s. It will become apparent pretty immediately which one of us lovely gals has worked in the wine industry.
Mona: Robust smell, kinda scared me, taste better than smell but only the first taste, the following tastes were… weird
Sidebar: Not really a pretty label Tricia, as the “pretty part” is the BACK label!
Tricia: Smells kind of like feet, tastes better than smells
Sidebar: ‘Back label’ has the word label in it MONA!!
Ashley: Smells like wood, I like wood. Tastes like wood, maybe I don’t like wood.
Tracy: fruit up front, sweet mild pallete, dry finish, acidic
Ashley: Smells like nail polish remover, it’s bitter if you swish it in your mouth, don’t swish it in your mouth, surprisingly it gets better the more you drink.
Mona: HOLY CRAP! Smells like gasoline, paint and burnt hair, I think that’s my singed nose hairs I’m smelling. Terrified to taste… OMG tastes like smoked gouda, I need Wheat Thins STAT!
Tracy: Cooked and over baked, flat, overly acidic
Tricia: WHOO, that smell is something… better after the first few sips, when you know what to expect. Really good with the crackers Mona just put on the table!
Tricia: Not bad, good, but not amazing
Ashley: Tangy in the back of my throat… THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!
Mona: I don’t like the look on her face, she’s judging me and thinks she’s better than me!
Tracy: Sweet. Fruity. Acidic. Tart.
Ashley: Again smells like nail polish, why do all the wines think I need a manicure 😦
Tracy: Cedar, smoke, licorice
Mona: Smells like cedar and smoke… from the nail polish factory that’s burning down.
Tricia: ok… really drunk now.
Juanita finally showed up almost 2 hours later, after we had drunk all the wine, and Ashley and I were trying to teach Tricia how to make a sexy pout face. Juanita also ended up winning the prettiest label contest… don’t believe me? Click the link below… with headphones… on low… sorry… we can get a little loud.
