Fifteen Dollar Bottle: 120 Reserva Especial

In this edition of Fifteen Dollar Bottle (where some friends and I sit down with a well-priced bottle of vino and talk about it), we are taking a bit of a different approach! Instead of me transcribing the entire conversation happening around a bottle of wine, I’m going to try just picking out the highlights! I’m also going to leave the quotes anonymous, as I have learned that I’ve embarrassed a few people in posts past! OOPS. This way, I can include all the best (or funniest) stuff without risking making a friend uncomfortable! As a 2 on the enneagram and an S on the DISC, I am really not good at knowing that I’ve made someone upset by something I’ve said. (This is a blessing and a curse…)

Everything else shall remain the same! So without further adieu, let’s get on with this $8.99 bottle o red!

“This is really good for $8.99!”

“This doesn’t have as much of a bite as the cab I was just drinking.”

“I wouldn’t say this is light bodied. But it is really smooth.”

“I have chocolate and a cookie in my mouth so I can’t really taste it over those flavors.”

“Supposedly if it has a lot of legs on the glass, it has higher alcohol content. And I’m seein’ some legs.

“We shop at Colony Wine Market, too. I’ll have to grab a bottle of this!”

“So these cookies have cinnamon in them. I think the cinnamon and the wine kinda work together well.”

“Do I want wine or cookie to be the last taste I leave in my mouth for the night? I guess I can’t lose!”

“I don’t know how to describe this wine. I like it! But I don’t know what kinds of “notes” it has or what year it is.”

“I have some friends who are big into wine. Like they know a lot about wine. And they say some of their favorite bottles are $10 or $15 bottles.”

“It’s easy.”

“Is there any left? I need a refill.”
