She:  “It’s so good to get in bed, and to relax and snuggle.  What a long day.”

He:  “I brought you a special surprise!  The new 2007 Salida Tempranillo!”

She:  “You lit the candles!  I’ll bet you think the wine will taste better that way.”

He:  “It may later on when …”

She:  “Wow, when I hold the wine against the light, it has beautiful, slow legs that remind me of a tango dancer.  Very clever Honey, since Tempranillo is a Spanish grape.”

He:  “Yes, I’m really happy about the glycerides.  You know, when you wrap your legs around …”

She:  “Hush!  I want to sip it.  Oh my, it’s really a big and expansive mouthful!

He:  “That’s actually what I was trying to achieve when I …”

She:  “It’s like velvet in my mouth, but really firm too.”

He:  “Did you know that there was a recent medical study suggesting that tannins may help a man to …”

She:  “Stop!  Oh My Word!  I can feel it just trickle down the back of my throat.  Oh gosh it kind of tickles.”

He:  “Yes, again it’s those glycerides.  They give the wine …”

She:  “Sensual!  That’s it!  No, maybe sexy!  Gosh, I remember those days when my girlfriends and I would go to Girls Night Out at the Purple Turtle.  The guys would dance on stage and begin to take … “

He:  “Honey!  I though we were talking about the wine!”

She:  “Wow!  It smells just like a fresh-baked cherry pie, or maybe like one of those chocolate covered cherry candies.  No, now I’m getting something like leather.  When I was riding last weekend … “

He:  “That’s kind of what I had in mind tonight, but …”

She:  “Really good job, Honey!  ‘Ya know, you’re very talented.”

He:  “Oh incidentally, Brian and I are thinking of going fishing early tomorrow morning.”

She:  “Thank goodness, I don’t smell any of that briney-like thing.”

He:  “Yeah.  That would probably mean there’s a problem with …”

She:  “Wait!  Now I’m getting a kind of smokey aroma.  Remember when we went camping last summer.  It was so romantic.  I can smell the campfire in the wine!”

He:  “I thought the best part was when we got into the back of the truck and …” 

She:  “Honey, didn’t you lite the candles for a special reason?  Not to talk about going fishing or camping.”

First blog everyone!  Hope you enjoyed it!  And don’t forget to get a bottle of the new ’07 Tempranillo before it’s gone! 

Just a reminder:  Mars and Venus taste wine too, but that women, by far, make the most wine purchases in the U.S.  And don’t forget to blow the candles out.  Alegria!
