A Political Plum For Your Dinner Table
The Green Dragon and I decided to salute the political shenanigans by sampling some Donkey and Elephant wine by Schmor Wine. You can “cast your vote” with bottles decked out in a Republican or Democratic motif.
We whipped up some steaks on the grill (for perhaps the last time this season) and settled in for some non-partisan fun. Here’s our take on the “candidates.”
Campaigning For Votes
We were determined to see which wine would “make our dinner table great again.” Green Dragon asked if there was a third option for wine – but I replied that the third choice was a bit confused and out of the league of the other two. The Elephant wine led the first primary (meaning I happened to grab it first).
I expected a narcissistic wine that was bold and aggressive. In the glass this wine was off-color and might be offensive to women. The Elephant wine began strong, but started fading in the finish. This wine might not pair well with ethnic food. We wanted the technical specifications, but the winery refused to make them public on the advice of their tax accountant.
The Returns Are In
There was a bit of a debate (all very friendly) about whether these are the same wines. At first sip, the Donkey wine seemed to have a bit more expressive flavor – so there could be two slightly different blends. We went back and forth on that issue. That’s really missing the point – these wines are fun and great conversation starters.
Now go out and support the Wine Party by buying a few bottles! And on a serious note, make sure you vote in the upcoming election.
