If they make it rich, then kudos. If they don’t, I can imagine that they would continue to make wine until the very end.
I will write more on box wines after the Vegas Wineaux Wine Club box wine tasting next month. (insert evil gleeful cackle here)
As one person told me, “I’ve always wanted to learn about wines, and thought this was a good place to start.” Indeed.
There are scads more “wine trails” in the Paso Robles/Central Coast area than I thought was humanly possible.
I must be nuts.
Before I go into my rant – which newbies may see as shallow, opinionated, narrow-minded, and snobbish, and I’m good with that – I just want to make a couple of things perfectly clear.
Okay, since driving wasn’t involved, it was actually wine drinking. Staggering home is not illegal. At least as far as I know.
However, don’t be shy to venture away from the Strip and try some local wine bars and restaurants, as they can often be a pleasant surprise and much better for Vegas on a budget.
After all, you can never taste too much wine. “Educational,” you know.
I compare a good mixologist to a good chef; he’s someone who knows his ingredients, preparation, best practices, and how the resulting cocktail should taste.
You won’t regret it and you’ll taste wines that will make you take a step back (The Wineaux Guy™’s term for a really good wine that stuns you).
And then I tasted it. Dammit.
While my reviews are focused largely on wines that I have purchased, received as gifts, are a part of a wine club shipment, etc., I accept samples for tasting and review.
