This is what happens...

Posted by The Wine Whore |

... when you let your five year old son choose your bottle of wine: He picks the bottle with the large "E" on it.  Why?  Because he recognizes the letter, and I quote, it's his favorite. 

This begs the question: Are wine consumers as savvy as a five year old? 

I hate to admit how many times I've picked out a bottle of wine because of the label, catchy name, or some other ridiculous reason.  In this case, my son's pick actually turned out to be quite tasty... so maybe he has the potential to one day be the next Robert Parker using only his skills of label insight after all.  Only time will tell. 

For now I will admit that I think he's certainly better looking than Parker.... HANDS DOWN!!

Epiphany Santa Barbara Syrah Cab 2012 - Part of the Fess Parker family of wines, I thought this was a pretty solid bottle overall.  Price tag was also fairly reasonable given how much I enjoyed it.  There's a specific taste and smokiness that comes from Santa Barbara which makes their pinots so popular which I also found present in this blend. If you don't know what I am talking about, try some wine from this region and see if it meets your tastes.  If it does, you'll find yourself going back for more.... and more... and more...
