As you all know, this weekend marks a very special celebration filled with joy, presents, happiness and appreciation for the person who matters most…and once my birthday is over, it’s Mother’s Day.
Little known fact that has no impact on your life at all but I’m going to write about it anyway: I was born on Mother’s Day. It’s true; if you ask Paula, she’s obligated by law to say that I was the best Mother’s Day present she’s ever gotten. The downside of this is that she had to share Mother’s Day with me several times during my childhood.
This year? She gets to share it with you! On Mother’s Day, she’ll be pouring J. Sparkling Rosé, which is on sale for the next two days only. It’s normally $38 a bottle, but for the next two days is $25 and if you buy a full case, only $20 a bottle. In the newsletter, she used some big wine words like “elegant” and “pinot noir mixed with chardonnay” but I don’t know what any of that even means.
Trust me guys: your mom would rather have Rosé than the macaroni frame you made her last year. You’re 28 years old dude!
Okay guys, I got things rolling, but honestly, I have a lot of “work” to do today and need to “get back to it” and “stop using sarcastic quotations in places that don’t merit them”…so basically, I’m going to cut and paste the tasting notes from the DeVine Wines newsletter and insert my own commentary in red. Here you go:
Next, for an everyday wine, try Kelso Red or Kelso White. The white is Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc and has a bit of sweetness to it; the red is Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and is a perfect little food wine. At only $6 a bottle and $72 a case before discounts, you can’t go wrong! Mix and match for all your summer barbecues.
Looking for something outside of the US? I have an amazing find on some Chardonnay and some Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France. The Chardonnay is only $10, lightly oaked, buttery, and easy to drink, while the Pinot Noir at only $12 is a steal! It is an excellent value and a treat to be able drink Pinot Noir without breaking the bank!
Call the shop before Thursday at noon and we can have your cases here in the shop by Friday afternoon!
…Okay turns out I didn’t have any commentary. But I agree: buy some wine for your summer barbecue. You can still get the Coors Light, but this will make it classier so women will come! Also: The patio is open now! Come down on the next warm afternoon (if we get one) and sit outside with a glass of something awesome and a plate of something super delicious.
I’ll see you tonight for the tasting. Stay thirsty my friends (man, I’m nowhere NEAR cool enough to say things like that).
