You'll never believe it, I found a bottle of "Why did you sink my thread?" when I was fishing last weekend. It's easily accompanied by a somewhat tart side dish, which goes perfectly with it's bitterly tart taste. Personally I recommend throwing the bottle back into the ocean, and watching it sink back down to Davy Jone's Locker.

I tried a new one today that I found disappointing...."Wil u b my GF?", and it's cousin "Wil u b my BF"? It's a cheap wine, sickeningly sweet with a pathetic finish. Some vintages have turned bitter after aging, however, and those are the worst of all.

I've been offered a glass of Will u b my BF quite often, lately; it is rarely appropriate to the situation, though, and does not usually come from anyone I'd consider an expert on whines. Needless to say, you won't often find me sampling. If you are of a mood to accept, however, I strongly suggest you serve it with a hearty cheese... perhaps Ill giv u stuff everry day?

Lately I've seen several people sipping from the fine Sore Loser line. A favorite of artists everywhere, it has the unusual effect of heightening the drinker's persecution and inferiority complxes.


Interestingly enough, the label that produces Sore Loser has remarkably high output capabilities. New varieties can be sipped monthly, and have occasionally been sampled semimonthy. The distinct flavor of each grape may be slightly different, but Sore Loser is often decidedly sour.

Technique or Exploit is a new varietal with a surprisingly difficult to characterize taste. Opening a bottle of this vintage is tantamount to inviting friends and strangers to start a loud argument over the exact nature of the grapes involved in its making.

sadly though the technique or exploit that we're sampling at the moment isn't a 2006. So far 2007 hasn't had anywhere near the bumper 2006 harvest, I'm hoping that an early summer will certainly help with the quality.

Alas, these two vintage whines weren't released in 2007:

 
The new AI is unbeatable and it's companion LSMs don't work any more. Both of which, despite having a smell of over rated self opinion taste sweetly of irony. Both taste like they should be green but are not.


...in favor of more Technique or Exploit bottles, but I hear Ice Whinyards may be testing a new bottling of the old blend.

One of my new 2007 favorites is Stagnat0r Chianti, from the emerging Whinyards of Sage Hills.

Ah! Sweet whine.

After rooting around in my cellar I found a nice bottle ofLSM is a exploit!! I found it kind of blanchy with a hint of sourness.

Of course there is the very old, but kind of nice whine of, port nao b4 we lose it all!!!11! Kind of stings the pallet if drunk too much.

Then to accompany it there is my personal favorite of when you lose a battle: we should have ported!

Last but not least there is the very green whine of, can i join ur crew and b cap?

Oh wait I found one last whine in my cellar.

Of course, we all know the secret to a good batch of T or E, is to start with a firmly crushed sour grape, and slowly introduce two or three particular favourite fruits of mine - the full-bodied fiery richness of the Chavez, the tangy unique forum tartness of the Piepi variety, and the pale, complex, oft misunderstood -and oft mistaken for leaving a bitter aftertaste- Shuranthae from Ultimate Vineyards.

Generally, any combination of the above will result in a strong, dry flavour with several different twists, each fighting for dominance of the palate in it's own way. Best served cold.

I've recently stumbled upon a quite an interesting whine, yelling at people for deliberate misspelling.

Every bottle of said whine is different, as it is actually two whines in one. The first is misspeller and complainer. The two, if combined correctly, will give you a different taste every single time. One will be sweet, the next will be sour, the thirdwill be sweet with a sour aftertaste.

Another contender for this year - You don't understand (often marketed under the You just don't get it do you? label). Often the result of a blend of particularly popular grapes, pointless argument , poor analogy and tangential spinoff .

Something for everybody, and always a gamble. Bad bottles have been found to be extremely weak, and occasionally, the unscrupulous have been known to fortify this, somewhat disappointingly, with industrial-strength You wouldn't do it in real life .

Nothing as refreshing as a good, full bodied whine from the old sub territories...

A good bottle of "the mechanics are broken" never ceases to please. It's being marketed increasingly in the new green bottles, but like so many other whines, it's always fuller in flavour when it's from a source with a rich history...

It's yet to hit the market, but already I'm not looking forward to the flooding of the market of the 2007 vintage LSMs don't work any more.

It is my expectation that it will be marketed as a brand new taste, but in reality it will will disapoint you with a texture that feels like you have had it before. Sadly, its flavors that are trumped up as being a new issue will wind up tasting very much similar to earlier vintages. Lovers will proclaim that this vintage brings with it a new twist, but puerists will argue that they have made only token changes to the old blend.

I've tasted this year's Random Bump blend, and find that with few exceptions it is over-simple; you might as well buy a box of Midnight is Stagnant and save your money. However, relative newcomer Chateau de Fix the Edit Button is producing strong and fullbodied whines, with bracing tannins and a lingering bitter aftertaste. Some people have accused this producer of being common and too acidic, but they obviously haven't paired it with the Use Preview, n00b cheese; true, this cheese is produced in small batches and may not be locally available, but it is an excellent complement, and the pairing brings out the best in both products.
