We are travelling home today from our vacation to Washington State. We ended our trip in Kirkland, in Washington wine country. Wine is big business here.
We sampled quite a few wines we can’t get at home, and delighted in the descriptions of wine in the restaurants we ate at. This was our favorite:
Fanti Brunello di Montalcio: A big powerful red with dense tannins and black cherry flavors. Balanced in a muscular way, this remains tight and brooding despite the long, fresh, finish.
We had fun crafting personal descriptors for each other. Husband came up with this for me:
RENEE: Sweet, German dessert wine. Full bodied and robust. Good for long cellaring.
Daughter, perhaps more accurate, came up with this for me:
Mom: Effervescent and fruity with an occasional sharp finish. Needs to chill.
What kind of wine are you? How would you be described on a restaurant menu?
