As Prince announced to the world in his 1986 sultry single, 'Kiss,' you don't have to be rich, to be his girl. Alas, we are not all such glorious, open-minded humans. There's a 'Cards Against Humanity' white card that touches woefully on one of our greatest fears, particularly us millennials:
I've met many a parent in my heyday. Some can be well reasoned with, others cannot. It's just the way of it. And sometimes the best way to get along with your own parents is to play their game. To show them the success they so crave, even if you haven't truly achieved it, or just don't give a flying fig about it. And what better way to generate perceived maturity and success, than by bringing, to your next family gathering that is, a bottle of wine? The drink so closely tied to bourgeois success, admitting you know anything about it is seen by some as evidence of palpable pomposity. But the problem is, you don't really have the income, or desire, to drop Benjamins, or even Hamiltons, on a bottle. Well brethren, I have a solution, and there's no need to 'make it rain,' because mops are expensive and nobody wants to clean that mess up anyways.

No, not Aragorn, the rightful heir to the throne of Gondor, but Aragon, a small region in central northern Spain. History nerds will recognize the region as the former location of the Kingdom of Aragon. Today, it contains over four billion square ft. of vineyards. Read more here.
Evodia's flavor evokes some dark cherries and pleasant, peppery spice. It's hue is that of a deep purple, though less the 70s English rock band from Hertford, and more that of Prince's Purple Rain. Much like that God of Rock, the Evodia is classy, maybe even sensual, and exceptionally fruity. So when you're next craving a bit of filial affection from that good old pater familias (another term that should be employed with more frequency), throw this bottle in your bag. Inform your parents the grapes grow on one hundred year old vines that trace their history back to the ancient Kingdom of Aragon. Then take a deep breath, and savor their dazzled faces. Your mom's pork roast will never taste this good again.
