Gnarly Head

Some wonderful person brought this fartastic wine to the pig roast and I just got around to opening it for use in my braised short rib dish. I am totally impressed with this BIG wine.

I poured half into the dutch oven and then poured a bit of zin for me. I took a sip. WOW!! About ten seconds later..give or take, I had an exhaust explosion! Dave thought I'd stomped on a duck! Let's just say the bouquet (bookay) was on a "hole notha levol". It's 'nose' was hard to describe but I'll try.

It had a hint of red pepper, a splash of plum, a blast of sulphur, and the lingering scent of steaming cotton with a burnt rubber/raisin finish.

I suggest you use it in your next blind wine tasting event with three caveats:

1. Do not sit on anything vinyl
2. Do not wear spandex bike shorts or skinny jeans (this could result in cyclic flatulance)
3. For those stuck in the 80's, skip on the parachute pants.

You can expect analreverberations, cheekungulations and gastroefluvia..which aren't bad things really.

Dave and I are planning an NPR Wine Judging Radio program...much like "Click and Clack"...except when we ask what it sounds like, know. What should we call the show?

I give this big gnarly zin 4 out of 5 flatus'. I would buy some for myself.
