~*My Sommelier Sense Was Tingling*~

Before dinner, my date and I purchased some cheese with the intention of buying some wine that would be perfectly paired.


Afterwards, we walked to 2 wine stores, only to discover they were BOTH closed. Apparently most people who enjoy fine wines don’t come out after 9pm in my neighborhood.

I suggested that we try the cheeses we bought with this wine I had at home, a wine with which I had no experience prior to this day, but was inspirational and the sole survivor of a “sample case” I purchased a few months back.

Castillo de Jumilla was the wine.

Gouda was the cheese.

If having the audacity of hope can do me good here, why not here?
