horrible wine

July 17, 2008

I went shopping last night, and strolling up and down the aisles, you come across the mini-stands offering tastes, presentation and what-have-you.

I tasted some yoghurt, some schnitzels a burger and two wines.

The first 3 were okay, nothing special, nothing to write home about.

But the wine, oh, the wine.  The young (and cute) salesman convinced me to try a sparkling white wine. I thought it would be slightly fizzy grape juice. BOY was I wrong. The flavor was horrendous, I WANTED to throw up – too bad I couldn’t.

Right after it, I downed a classic, straight Cabernet Sauvignon, which was nice, but I STILL had the flavor of the horrible icky wine.

Only when I chewed two sticks of gum (purchased on the spot) did it wane a little.
