Forget about water, food, and batteries! I need a wine that is going to match the intensity of this hurricane. At the top of my list is this wine: Cat 5 from RayLen Vineyards and Winery in Mocksville, North Carolina. On its label, the image of the last Category 5 hurricane to hit North Carolina. Cat 5 is called by the locals “Hurricane Juice.”
Or... on the opposite spectrum...
EYE OF THE STORM
This dry, fruity, crisp, distinctive blend was assembled from four varietal wines to provide diverse aromas and flavors that compliment New England cuisine. Yet, it is fruity, medium-bodied and crisp with a nice clean and lingering finish that makes it equally suitable as a stand-alone aperitif.
And yet another suggestion. The Cabernet Sauvignon from... Hurricane Ridge Winery in Washington State.
And after the storm is over, let's all celebrate with some Champagne Tarlant!
Come on Irene! Bring it on. I'm ready for you honey...
