We found love in a hopeless grape.
Human beings are incredibly talented at being foolish. We are fantastically mediocre at knowing what we want, and we search for our deepest desires with such verve and certainty, that we often overlook new possibilities that arise from unexpected places.
Simply put, we suck at knowing what we want. And we're crap at actually finding it. 

We know our "type." We're certain of who we want to date and who we don't. But that's all hogwash and noise if you ask me. Until you sit down and honestly get to know a human, you often don't know whether they are someone you want to create a deeper connection with. So this is a post about being, a bit more open minded. Saying yes to the dress, and to someone you're thinking might be a hot mess. This is a wine for establishing intimacy with another individual, someone you might not be 100% certain about. For when you want to truly discover what angles and curves compose his or her life, rather than just seeking the ones that fit into your own jigsaw-puzzle.

Let's say you've invited him/her to your place for dinner. You have the meal planned, the mood set, and you've gone through the vague potentiality of whether they would be a good parent, oh, I don't know, three to four times. You want to cook pork and asparagus, but you don't know if they like asparagus, but you're really good at making asparagus, and you would text them so that you can be certain that they like asparagus, but there's no reception in the supermarket because first world problems are hard, so screw it you bought chicken. 

Once you pass this point of no return, turn to this fellow for the assist:

The Bodega Chacra Barda Pinot Noir 2014.
  • The Price (Trigger Warning):  $27
  • Theme Songs: "Smooth," by Santana and Rob Thomas, and "Bridge Over Placid Water," by Simon and Garfunkel.
Forget turning water into wine, the people over at Bodega Chacra have turned velvet into wine. Describing the Barda is not unlike reciting the lyrics to any pop song written by a 90s boy band. It's smooth, soft, and silky. But to simply apply a trifecta of broad terms doesn't begin to do the flavor of this wine justice. Open the curtains, cue the orchestra, and.......action:
Picture
Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley. We wine-nerds, both aspiring and realized, will appreciate that because the region is surrounded entirely by desert, they have escaped the transfer of vine diseases and phylloxera. Literally an oasis of flavor and happiness.
Imagine yourself strolling through Patagonian farmland, eating blackberry and plum right off the vine. You're not worried about getting in trouble with the farmer, because you own the farm. You bought it, for $27, in your local wine-shop. That is the feeling the Barda evokes. Barring some juiced up monstrosity from California (not my style), pinot noir often has soft but forward fruitiness. Though not your typical pinot, this wine is not the exception, it is the yardstick by which others ought to be measured. It tastes rustic and earthy, rather than pungent and overly sweet. Not restrained, but delicate.

Rather than commanding your attention, it seduces you taste by taste. It ends up being perfect for finding love, even in an unexpected place. I've never searched for a pinot noir from Argentina. The label is unassuming. It probably won't align with your expectations. And much like that new person sitting across from you, when you delve into the bottle, you might find something else. Something new. A wine you had no idea you wanted to try, and no possibility of leaving. Strangers, no more.

The Recap: 

The Bodega Chacra Barda Pinot Noir 2014.
  • The Price: Can you really put a price on connection? Yes. It runs you about $27.
  • The Taste: Clearly, Bodega Chacra took their budget for label design and put it into wine-quality. It's like Hansel, from Zoolander. The art is inside the bottle. It glides over your tastebuds like a leaf on the wind. Think wool socks on a freshly waxed floor. Or, if its more helpful, earthy fruits, a delicate, but rounded body, and a dry finish. Open it up a bit ahead of time to let the flavor develop fully.
  • The Pairing: This wine sets the mood for a romantic night of "getting to know you." It will go great with the aforementioned pork and asparagus. It's soft texture smoothes the bumps and soothes the nerves.
  • The Rating: 2 – It'll cost you an arm, though no leg fortunately. But let down you shall never be. You may score the goal. You may kill it on that date. But this fellow gets the assist.

On Another Note: I borrowed that final tagline from a beautiful place. If you don't have a friend to share this wine with, or don't want to, you should check this place out. It's called "Strangers," a warm and unique podcast hosted by Lea Thau, former director of "The Moth," and owner of the most soothing voice ever to cross the airwaves. Her show shares the stories of chance encounters, and the love, laughter, and heartbreak that can ensue. It has become one of my favorite companions. Check her out on facebook here, or listen to her newest episode, "Dumb Shit We Do - Part 1" here.

I hope you guys are not importing these things. I am pained that these days American businesses are now more profit prone than patriotic and have relocated our businesses and by extension our jobs to China. Let's continue to be good on building stronger American brands for the next generation. God bless America.

When I read the title of the article, “We Found Love” song started to play in my head. I wish that it was like this article but it’s not. I totally agree with this article though. Sometimes, we know what we want and we’ll realize later that we’re wrong all along. I’ve consulted most of my friends about what is the proper meal and wine to prepare for a guy who you want to get to know and they answered that they’re not sure. Surprisingly, I agree with them because they don’t know the guy so how can they know his preferences, right? Thank you for this and now I have an idea on what to prepare and will try the suggestion that was mentioned here in the article.

That was a hard on and also true. I don’t know we are able to be foolish dear but I think it is a talent. How did you know all this about me? I don’t know what to do with my life. I have a degree in physics and I won a small financial institution. It is not doing well at the moment. I hope it picks up soon, pay the worker and pay me too and put some in investments. I will get this wine and see how things go with this new guy I have met.
