I have a couple more Saudi links to post, but I will get them tomorrow. I am well into a great bottle of wine, and doubt I will make much sense if I continue to type (although that is assuming that I normally make any sense). I am not much of a wine connoisseur. Since I do not even drink white wines, wine labeling for me breaks down into good and bad, and even then I am not capable of describing the taste very well, as I do not know all of the terms used. Indeed, I still believe that brushing my teeth counts as ‘cleansing my palate.’
At any rate, the most important thing about a bottle of wine to me is how it makes me feel, and I must say that 3 glasses of Black Opal Cabernet (an exceptionally inexpensive Australian wine) scores high marks on thaT account. It doesn’t have a hideously bitter aftertaste that many Cabernet’s have, and I look forward to the next sip. The subsequent ‘buzz’ is light, and my cheeks and knees are numb. There you have it. Wine tasting by ogres. Go get some Black Opal and try it yourself.
I would also like to thank Gregory Hlatky for adding me to his link list. Please check out his site, A Dog’s Life, if you have time.
