At work the other day, a sales rep came in with a box filled with a couple bottles of wine. Since I don’t work in the wine industry, (I work for a surf company) and sit at a desk most of the day, seeing someone walk in the office with wine, makes my eyes, and taste buds perk up like a dog when it sees a dog treat.
I immediately get up and follow him to see what is going on, why he’s bringing wine here and how I can get in on this. It turns out his in-laws, have their own winery and bottle their own wines in Jamul, California. (the name is Kahl, so a winery in California really worked out for them) He gave us a few bottles, and of course I got my hands on this “Perfect Storm Red.” Getting a bottle of wine at work really makes my day.
The one bottle I got to take home and enjoy to myself is The Perfect Storm Red. It’s from 2006 and a blend of 7 different red grapes. It’s sweet with a tart aftertaste, it wakes your mouth up, and tastes great with spicy foods.
I am not positive if they sell this anywhere, if they do, it might just be locally, near Jamul. I will have to ask next time, and hopefully get to try some more! It was so awesome of him to share his wine!
Cheers! Pound Grape!
