Wine for the Blues
Not music here, guys, but feeling low! What wine works best when you’ve got the blues or consoling a friend who’s down for whatever reason? Although most movies depict someone in this position taking a good shot or two of spirits because it contains the most alcohol, we’re talking about the sophisticated “wineknow”, so wine it must be. Most folks would probably guess a wine that you or the person in question really likes. You’d figure that sipping a wine that gives you the most pleasure would lighten one’s heaviness. What I find does the best job is a fortified wine, especially Port. Not only does it contain the most alcohol of any wine, but also its sweetness is soothing and a lot easier to get down than a fiery spirit.
