This Week Marvin Learns: Wine Blending

So this week I head north to Agua Dulce to learn wine blending.  Now initially when booking this course, I thought it was more about wine “making” and not so much blending; but alas I was wrong.  But nonetheless it was still an interesting thing to learn.

We started by venturing to the distillery where we sampled four different types of wine essential to the blending (Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet, and Sangiovese).  We talked about the different tastes they’ll give your wine, and keeping that in mind while blending your own.

After some testing and mixing I decided on a blend that was 40% Cab, and 30% Syrah and Merlot.  Can’t wait to fully imbibe it.

the noise i just made was loud, sexual in nature, and highly desperate.

Having a glass of wine, working on my wine rack, and watching football.  Life is good.

I just realized I haven’t had some wine in maybe almost a month…  God damn these jobs; I’m making a trip to the store, pronto.
