What Possessed Us To Open Wine?
It was a Monday. One of those Mondays. It was me and a computer the whole day. No conversation unless you want to count the incidents of me yelling at my computer. I needed a glass of wine and a real person.
What Did The Label Want Us To Know?
It’s from Paso Robles and they talk about the good growing conditions and varietal grapes there. They say that “Tarrica stands for the attainment of the good life."
What’s So Great About It?
I love this wine. It’s one of my new favorites. The color is almost a light purple. It looks delicious and you haven’t had a drop yet. David noticed oak and a smooth finish. I think it tastes like a blend. I enjoy the smell as much as the taste. It’s a whole pleasure package.
Warning: the taste totally changed once we ate our pork loin that had been marinated in a very vinegary pepper sauce. The wine disappeared. That was so weird. Made me never want to eat again. Just drink.
Someone Else’s More Qualified Opinion:
