Wednesday’s also known to millennials as hump day, have quickly gone from drab to fab. Now, I’m a frequent wine drinker so truly these blog posts are a good way for me to have a reason (outside of wow I just really like drinking wine) to drink wine. I like to think that I will be fancy enough to pair these wines with food and give your real feedback on them but in reality these posts may end up being drunken ramblings about legs that don’t exist and tanics that are just SO tanic, and probably some overly personal information. Regardless I hope you enjoy my “analysis” of wine companies, their social media and the various flavors they provide us to enrich our lives.
The first wine on my journey is one that a friend of mine gave to me for my 22nd birthday. Typically a bottle doesn’t last more than a week in my household, but I’ve been waiting for a special occasion to break this one out. If drinking for school doesn’t count then I don’t know what does!
This bottle is from the Francis Ford winery in Archimedes, Geyserville, California. From my experience Californian wines are very good. Well, actually from my experience almost anything that doesn’t come from a gas station is good @gallo. Any way, back to the wine. Andrew got me a 2016 Pinot Grigio (that’s white wine) which really isn’t my speed. I’m not so fond of hangovers.
I can; however, report back and say that this wine was easy to put down, and I mean that in the most sophisticated way. It had beautiful hints of citrus that weren’t overpowering. I wasn’t grassy at all. I tend to lean toward a slightly sour touch in most of my drinks and the grapefruit was the perfect amount.
Copola’s instagram is less than perfect in my opinion. I would prefer more appeal pictures of the winery and a more cohesive theme to the overall pictures. The image seem to be all over the place. I personally would not follow them but I would rebuy their wine.
