A First Kiss to Remember

Do you remember your first kiss? Well, you’ll remember this one. I chose the 2007 Camellia Cellars First Kiss Proprietor’s Blend to drink with our chicken soup.  I picked this bottle up when I visited the tasting room in September with my favorite Lush and WineQT.  I think it cost me $13 in the tasting room, clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume, and had a screw cap closure.

We drank the wine on its own, after a very long, cold day skiing last week. It finished off our day perfectly, but would have also gone nicely with some light white fish or the crab legs we had 2 weeks ago.  On the nose I found honey, pineapple, apricot, and other tropical notes.  In the mouth I found the wine to be tingly and refreshing, I imagine it would be perfect for drinking on the porch on a hot Virginia summer day. I got flavors of tropical fruits, citrus, oranges, and pineapple. Overall, I liked the crispness and acidity of the wine, and I’d guess some Sauvignon Blanc went into the blend….

  1. Mmm, I really liked that one! I’d picked up the Sangiovese there at Camilia, but it didn’t last long over here at Casa Q 🙂 Maybe I’ll go steal the bottle of First Kiss that Miss Lush picked up that day…I know where her cellar is, tee hee!

  2. Mwahahaha! Shopping in Thea’s cellar!
