Food Pairing.That’s what this VINTAGES release is all about. It’s a topic I used to care about, but finally came to this conclusion: why would I drink something I don’t really like bc some asshole (often myself) told me it was “a good match”.
Expensive and predictable.The highly anticipated holiday VINTAGES release is kinda like a suburban soccer mom’s kitchen reno. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
This week’s Vintages release is all about California stuff. Not my fave, but I know loads of y’all like it, so I was prepared to reco good value, quality stuff that I’d never drink.

Ouf. Long time no nothing. Hope you’re all somewhat successfully slogging through this wet pile of garbage year. Needless to say, desperate times call for desperate measures – and alcohol.
Like most self-respecting humans, I quit drinking Australian wines in the early 2000s and I haven’t given one single eff about them since. That’s why I just can’t bring myself to care about this week’s Vintages release. That’s why I just can’t bring myself to care about this week’s Vintages release.
I gotta hand it to the LCBO this week (you probs won’t hear me say that again for a while/ever). They actually did a really great thing!
I dunno if it’s me or what (probs me), but the Vintages releases have been mega boring lately and that leaves me in a bit of a pickle (aka I don’t have a helluva lot to say here). So, uncharacteristically, imma shut up.
In an attempt to keep up with the times, the LCBO is featuring organic wines this Vintages release. So I went ahead and wrote them a letter to gently remind them that organic products are no longer “au courant” mostly bc it’s no longer 2004. Waiting on a response.
I didn’t write about the last release because it was pretty meh. Turns out, this week’s release is only slightly less meh. So this here diatribe is a combo of the March 2nd and 16th releases. To the parents of children under 18, apologies for not writing a pre-March break edition. I hear y’all like to give yer livers a run for their money this time of year.
HOW EXCITING!…that means, there’s a bunch of stuff I haven’t tried, BUT the more important underlying theme is “general disappointment”.
Hopefully none of you drowned in swill during my absence. In worse news, I solemnly vowed to 100 days sans booze (pray for me), so I’ll be drinking vicariously through y’all. MAKE ME PROUD GODDAMNIT.
