Comme ci, comme ca

Tom was all-in. Me? Not so much. That's just the way it happens sometimes. He expressed that this one was refreshingly flavorful, while I had to ask, "Yo, you? You don't note the oak note in there?"

All right. So it was fermented in stainless, but still, there was something going on that didn't land for this unoaked lover. Tom thought it was full and rich, and that is fine. We each get to enjoy our own opinions. He says "iPhone." I say "Droid." He says beach. I say pine. He enjoys a plain, fresh avocado. I think it isn't ready to serve if it isn't guacamole. And don't forget the chips.

He doesn't think that Breyer's Chocolate Chip Mint is the best ice cream ever. I mean, come on!

So we disagree about some things, this wine included. We bought it from an on-line website that urges one to Act Now, which is a little like Home Shopping Network for the internet. But Wine Woot was new to us (thank you, Margaret!), maybe to you, too. Three bottles for about (math...so, 47 which includes shipping divided by three...) whatever that comes out to.
