Hello friends and stealth followers of the Casual Wine Taster blog. And hi, Mom. Did you miss me last week? You will quickly discover on this blog that I am the sort of person for whom when it rains, it pours. And when it pours, it’s a hurricane. That often means that my
anal-retentively carefully planned days are often laughed at, chewed up, and spit out by fate, and I’m left shrugging over WTF JUST HAPPENED.
Folks, the past couple of weeks have been those sort of weeks. Soooo much, planned and unplanned, happened. This morning I am taking a deep breath and realizing that I neglected to post last week. Shame on me.
I am back at it today though, with just a quick little note about our upcoming tasting this Friday. School’s back in session, so I know everyone is experiencing that acute pain, felt deep in the wallet, after school clothes and supplies (and books! For those of you who are or who have college students), so this Friday we will be sampling something that really fits what I find myself wanting right now: inexpensive, unassuming, and good with food.
Santa Rita Coleccion Privada Reserva Chardonnay is a mouth-full to say, and a delight to drink. It’s soft, light on the oak (y’all know I HATE an over-oaked chardonnay), and inexpensive. Perfect for a weeknight indulgence with Chinese Takeout. Or a turkey sandwich, if you’re feeling extra culinary this week. I am feeling neither of those things, and will likely take my chardonnay with popcorn and a half-eaten bag of fruit snacks, because hey, you only live once.
So if you’re feeling it, stop by Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits this Friday, September 7th from 4PM to 7PM for your FREE sample of Santa Rita blah blah blah Chardonnay (the tasting bar is open too, BTW), and then if you decide you LOVE it, relax because we’ve got you with a two for one special. Hope to see you there! Cheers!
