Drinking the 2007 @kabajwines Amfora from a Piala. I now have a new understanding of these wines. You immediately see the symbiotic relationship between the juice and clay. Glasses on occasion no matter how well cleansed have residual smells from the cleaning agent, etc. Ordering Piala’s right away. @bluedanubewine and I didn’t set my hair on fire this event @tabularasabar!

Pét-Nats might be all the rage, but they’re not all created equal. Some of them are soulless, bottles void of meaning and no other purpose then getting slammed, which I’m always down for. But like many wines, some are more about technique or dogma than place. Fortunately, there are some that are goddamn delicious, fun, and will have you removing your clothes before the night ends. This one is from Slovenia. Štoka Rosé Peneče 2014 (Grape: Teran) is one of those, too bad for you it’s sold out. It’s elegant with a muscular edge. The color is a beautiful shade of red. Perfect for a budget wedding or a Jersey Shore dive bar.

@kabajwines: My cat was dead. I was in pain. The perfect partner for my sorrow, Amfora 2008. Elegant and sexy. Salty and crunchy. Perfect acid and earth. Food lovers perfect juice. Good for a fancy restaurant or drank by ground troops invading a country. Delicious with tobacco. Can be consumed anytime of the day with a broad range of activities, fucking or fighting. It’s liquid gold. A touch of heaven and a touch of hell. Whiney maggots need not apply. This is sensual muscle. @bluedanubewine
Grapes: Rebula, Malvazija, Zeleni Sauvignon

I love skin contact and if I were on death row and had to select wine for my last meal, it would without a doubt be a wine made by Jean-Michel Morel. His wines suit my personality like no other. They give me both strength and stimulate me intellectually. I love them with or without food. They aren’t fussy and I feel like I can break through walls with my fist after one glass. My favorite is the Amfora. Aged in Georgian qvevri amphora, it is elegant and transcends whatever you think a wine should be. If you don’t like these wine, well, I probably won’t like you. More on this later.
