Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino
Once again, it looks like nice, crisp wine, so I decide to pair it with some cheese... and I've never disliked the taste of cheese in my life. There's more chocolate this time, but also some vanilla. It's like I went into a coffee shop and ordered a vanilla Italian soda with a little grape flavor, and they made it in an unwashed coffee cup.
It’s like bad candy (which isn't a thing), or maybe one of those canned coffees with a little bit of booze in it. Either way, it exists in a weird vortex where it’s just gross enough to be mesmerizing, and just weird enough that I’m considering shotgunning it.
Conclusions Unless you're Lucille Bluth looking for a new breakfast go-to, or trying to impress college-aged wine aficionados by shotgunning a can of vino, it's hard to say who this is for. But hey, it'll make a hell of a gag gift for your snooty friend who usually gets you a membership to a wine club.
