Wishful Wine-Thinking

Here is a picture of the label of the red wine I wish I were enjoying right now instead of staring bleary-eyed at my computer and waiting with bated breath to fall into my bed:























I came upon this red zinfandel at a quaint (but somewhat overpriced) wine shop in my neighborhood. A while back the Boyf and I were having a little contest to see who could pick the most whimsical (yet tasty) bottle for dinner that night. I remember that he picked one of my favorite labels -- a 1980s woman hugging a concrete statue of a lion; I think it's a malbec, but I'm not sure what the name is -- but I won hands-down with the Tumbling Tractor, because it's as delicious as its name is funny.

I like dry zins. I like most of my wines dry, spicy, and exploding with full, near-harsh flavor. This one is perfect. See the cute backstory about Gravity Hills's Tumbling Tractor Zin here or just take my word for it and buy it for cheap here.

3:04 in -- I'm already impressed with Jamie. Not only does she look hot in her picture but she sounds hot too. Sounds like a great phone sex buddy...not that I'd know anything about that or anything.

Of course he wouldn't?

Nick: I love that my readers are winos like me. Cheers!

Phil: You know, some might think I'd be jealous, but because Blogstein's like my brother, I only have one word for that: EWWWWWW! Keep your virtual sex life to yourself, Doc!
