Aged over a period of 80 years, Pelosi will strike many political connoisseurs as almost pickled. Imperious, regal, and with an extraordinarily high alcohol content, Pelosi’s bouquet almost washes over you like the tide or the administrative state. Most palates outside Mill Valley will find this varietal has lost a step.
McConnell almost teases you with a laconic nature. With a fragrant bouquet redolent of bourbon and cocaine, McConnell is an excellent choice for anyone whose palate favors character and mastery above all. A superb choice for reshaping the federal judiciary into the originalist mold for at least a generation.
Technically a red but with unmistakable blue streaks yielding a kind of wishy-washy purple hue, Manchin is a rarity on the current scene. Widely disliked, Manchin is nevertheless redolent of rich dark coal and finishes delightfully with hints of fiscal sanity and the second amendment.
Technically a blue but with unmistakable red streaks yielding a kind of wishy-washy purple hue, Collins is a rarity in the current scene. Though widely disliked, Collins remains popular among both Max Boot, Jennifer Rubin, and the Lincoln Project’s social media guy. Pairs well with aggressively centrist Republicans, Democrats, and pretty much anything in-between.
Incredibly dense and unabashedly tarty. Fresh aromas of sea salt and crushed stone sexed-up to taste like the new coke. The palate is dumb at first before unfurling with an even dumber crescendo of dried pineapple, lanolin, and other people’s money. The structure of this 31-year old unabashed red deserves its own mention: a seamless freshness, oh-so-fine pixellated tannins with an extraordinary persistence of a minty Green New Deal. Also, totally unaffordable.
An aggressively ambitious mid-palate finesse, Cruz’s ruthless natural acidity of cigarette ash and pencil shavings come to the foreground, mingling with small hints of caramel-drizzled licorice and rank populism. Makes you use the modifier “common good” a lot.
Marjorie Taylor Green
Eminently quaffable with an animating tang which renders the finish mouthwateringly conspiratorial. A strong initial impression with a nose-mingling bouquet of beeswax, tinfoil and frickin’ laser beams. Pairs well with DC pizza.Published in
