What Possessed Us To Open Wine?

Happy Hour at home with friends who have put up with us for too many years and even will allow themselves to be influenced about what to read.

What Possessed Us To Open THIS Wine?

I all but forced Jan to read the Twilight series. Jess and I talked about it constantly until she gave in and waded through all 4 books. She didn’t even quit during the LONG part of New Moon, when there is no Edward. This is true dedication. She must be rewarded with wine! Obviously, there was no other choice to celebrate this than Vampire! By the way, the background music for this Happy Hour was the soundtrack of Eclipse.

What’s So Great About It?

Everyone thought it was smooth. I thought it tasted like Edward. (wonderful and flawless) David said it smelled wonderful and the taste hits you right from the beginning. He also said it tasted good, unlike Edward. David is just jealous.

Also, this is the second wine in a row that features poetry on the label! This one from Lord Byron about, well, a vampire!

Fantasy This Wine Engendered:

There is perfect guy for everyone, a soul mate. And he is beautiful and unselfish and interesting and brilliant and he wants to be with you all the time. And he is one of the undead. Okay, damn.
