2011 Ruben's Blend
Named after Ruben the Rubber Chicken! Marsanne, Roussanne, and Grenache Blanc.
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?

This wine has a nice golden color in the glass, and you know how much I like me gold, eh?
Sniffy Sniff Time - Some nice fruit on the nose, but this smells a bit more halloweeny to me, as I'm gettin some caramel apple here, with some buttered toast.
Tasty Taste Time - This is one might creamy wine here, with some apple fruit, a bit of butter, oak and finishing with that caramel. Some nice acidity, and palate coater.
Well, well, well...me boys grabbed a good 'un here, yes sir! I may need to see if further distractions can net a few more bottles...of course, maybe we'll just burn down the place and take the entire stash for ourselves...not like we'll be in this port much longer anyways...hmmm...
