Ok…so it’s the holiday season, you’re having guests over and you’re looking for wines to pair with desserts. This is your chance to wow your friends with your incredible wine pairing skills or…drum roll please…fall flat on your face because after the first sip of wine and first bit of food, the wine tastes like vinegar and the food tastes like raw sugar. Never fear…we’ve got your back to keep you from making those mistakes.
I have to admit that I’ve been dreading this post more than virtually any other one. I hate Salmon. No… wait a minute. Hate isn’t strong enough a word. I despise Salmon. I loathe it more than almost any other food with the possible exception of any kind of liver, and calling liver food is a stretch.
You know what really sucks about writing blog posts for the Holidays. Well first, it’s the Holidays so writing blog posts is kind of like work and who really wants to work during the Holidays? Second, there are lots of distractions. Drinking wine, visiting with family, drinking wine, buying gifts, drinking wine, attending parties and drinking wine while at them, interminable amounts of driving and drinking wine – not at the same time however.
Sometimes just the length of a blog post can convey how complicated a concept it’s trying to convey. Long blog post – it’s probably a complex idea. A short blog post on the other hand is likely to convey a simple idea because it just doesn’t need much of an explanation. It’s so simple and intuitive that even writing it is a borderline insult to the reader’s intelligence.
