What I'm drinking

I realized my wine cupboard was getting a little bare of the type of wine I generally reach for. This being a bottle under $10, that I can shamelessly quaff after an ultra-casual dinner of Cheez-Its and leftover curried chicken salad. So, this evening, I headed to Barriques to pick up my Wine of the Month and shop for a few more grapey victims for my ardent thirst.

I found four bottles, all different, and all, except one (the appropriately bold, but not annoying, Ramsay Cabernet Sauvignon), new to my taste buds. The lucky bottle I uncorked this evening was the 2002 Fuedo Arancio Nero D'Avola, a velvety red. I don't think I can describe it any better than it's described on the label's website:

"This grape produces a livery wine with deep colors and zersty fruity characteristics."

You know, I've been looking so long for an appropriately zersty wine. Cheers.

Very funny that you should catch that!

Maybe zersty should become part of the Wendish lingo, like Wendishday and "aaarrrghhh?"
