One Mean Mother Rubber. Chicken.

I know what you’re thinking - “Did he score 90 points or only 89?... What is the difference between licorice and star anise anyway and what’s this *%#&@! business of creme brulee or vanilla?” Well, punk, I’m the one holding the corkscrew and your glass is empty. I may look boneless and cheap, but you don’t want to call me Poly behind my back if you know what’s good for you. The name’s Ruben but you can just call me One Mean Mother Rubber. Chicken. And now you’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel thirsty?” Well, do ya punk?

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
These tasting notes are often based on the winemaker’s notes. Well, this time he told me that this blend had aromas of caramel and vanilla with pear, porcini mushroom and lemon. Pears and Mushroom? You won’t find that combination in the Bath Soap Dept.! Then he goes on to mention nutty flavors of lemon, caramel and honey ON TOAST with a side of nuts. Okay, so now we have pears and mushrooms and lemons on toast. Is this insane or what? Well, what I can tell you is that this blend is pretty damn yummy, and has a long creamy finish. And there is nothing wrong with a long creamy finish, I always say.

Crisp and fruity. Well balanced and held up to my homemade spicy jambalaya.
