We’ve been talking a lot about specific wines lately. More specifically, what our current favorite varieties of wine are.
For Annie, it’s anything big, juicy, and red! A big, fruity Petite Sirah that brings about thoughts of baked blueberry cobbler or warm cinnamon bread. One of those inky red wines that stains your teeth and makes your tongue all purple so that you’re embarrassed to smile at people.
For Hoot it’s been Pinot Noirs lately! Give him a funky, grungy, earthy Pinot that can stand up on its own and screams “YES” and he’s happy!
It’s funny, our preferences have changed, and will change again. Not sure why that happens, but our favorites are affected by the season, the moon, the weather, the day, the food on our plate, and how work went that day. Tomorrow Annie may be craving a lovely Viognier, or a toasty Rose, and Hoot might want one of those awesome Rhone blends like a GSM or something.
What’s your favorite right now? What was your favorite last month? What do you think affects the change in your preferences?
