Old World Winery 2009 Bon Temps Sauvignon Blanc - 4 Pack

by Wootbot

And That May Be All I Need To Know

Stocks? Bonds? Whatever. The screamy crying man on TV said to start buying gold, and that’s just what I’m going to do.

That means any type of gold-type things, right? I’m a little unclear on all this market-based economy rigmarole, but that guy was pretty clear that something really bad was going to happen to me and my family if I didn’t buy gold RIGHT NOW. He’s face got really red about it, so he must have been telling the truth.

So, I figure the brilliant golden color of the wine in this Old World Winery 2009 Bon Temps Sauvignon Blanc 4 Pack should be a good start on my journey to financial stability. First off, it’s made by the folks at Old World Winery, who, since 1998, have been combining the skills of both old styles and more contemporary methods of winemaking to make some of the best wines available. That makes it a good value! I think.

Second, the notes of pineapple and green apple over a layer of crushed pistachio nuts and toasty oak on the nose, combined with a round mouthfeel and spicy lingering finish, make it something people actively desire, so it retains that value, yes? I’m kind taking a stab in the dark here.

Oh, and I almost forgot! Because this new vintage is being pre-released to Wine.Woot, that’s kinda like buying the first issue of a comic book, right? That makes this the best investment I’ve made since buying all those Image Comics #1’s back in the 90’s! That’s keeping in the spirit of finance, right? Kinda?

Ugh, all this economic stuff is confusing. To heck with it! Investment, Inschestment, you know? At least if the markets crash, I’ll have a reason to stay off the window ledge.
