Hello Blows: Wines for a Wine Down (S2:E6)
I wanted to thank everyone who reached out to me regarding my family, friends, and my beloved Houston regarding the hurricane. It did not go unnoticed and I am very thankful for this community who look after one another. It was also eye-opening for people who say they love you or care about you who didn’t say one word.
With that being said...my goodness. The show is going to places I know I didn’t expect. The writing is getting better and it’s also so real. Yes, people will always make crazy decisions while we sit on the couch of judgment.
Issa. That ending! That ending! I definitely didn’t expect that and I didn’t expect Issa to really get so emotional. Issa is having some major money issues from the car accident which means she has to take the bus. I do think her kicking out Nico was just dumb and this hoe-tation is going on a little too long. Since this is a week from hell, Issa goes home and opens a bottle of Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon. She needs a wine of substance and this Cabernet will deliver everything she needs even if Nico or Daniel couldn’t. Issa seems a little obsessed with stone fruit these days so this wine delivers.
Molly. Stop. No really. Please, just, please. Stop. You already know how this is going to end. Deep down Molly wants to celebrate having a man, but even if it’s not her man she still wants some bubbly. She’s sipping J Cuvee Brut NV while soaking in that beautiful tub - alone.
Tiffany. Tiffany gives me valley girl every time she talks and this week for her event outside of bubbles she’s drinking Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay. Tiffany would pair this with a cheese and baguette tray. The notes of oak and butter are what Tiffany will explain to the girls while she tells them how to be married.
Kelli. The life of the party wants something light so she can pre-game. Kelli is sipping William Hill Estate Sauvignon Blanc. This is a Sauvignon Blanc with character and has something to say, just like Kelli. It goes with lots of food and will make people who don’t like “savie” like this.
Until next week, let me know what you are drinking as you “wine down.”
