Holy Wine Wars (Part Dieu)

Recently, we took a close look at some infamous Wine War rivals vying for your vinological investment. However, sometimes it takes a cool-headed mediator rather than a “stable genius” to bring opposing parties to the table for reconciliation in the time-honored spirit of rapprochement.*

Just for safety’s sake, though, we’re keeping these two on separate racks.

*rapprochement, comes from the French word rapprocher (“to bring together”) meaning a re-establishment of cordial relations, as between two countries…or two theological wine factions. Just thought I’d save you the trouble of looking it up.

    Hey Jim, we recently found Old Soul Cab to be a quaffable and affordable wine (wife’s favorite). And of course Seven Deadly Zins is very nice. Keep ’em coming.

      I pretty much buy wine for the label graphics and quirky names these days since I am disenchanted with all the winetasting blathering in the “Notes” sections of the wine descriptions: buttery almond, plum notes, fruit forward, mouthfeel, etc. I will say though that I’ve been a fan of 7 Deadly Zins for several years…and then just a few weeks ago I heard a wine aficionado declare that 7DZ was garbage (or words to that effect). I’m still of a mind, someday, to hold a proper (double blind, controlled) wine taste event to see if the “experts” can be fooled as much as we all know they can. (Except for my cousins, of course).
