Firestone 2007 Riesling, Central Coast

Have you ever had a craving for something on the sweet side… but not that sweet?  Where you feel like your cheating… but not really?  One day Risqué found himself shopping in the supermarket… incognito of course… in a place… well, we’ll call Costco.  This is certainly not a foreseeable crime, but this desperate time called for desperate measures and Risqué was desperate for something sweet… but not.  Unfortunately, Risqué’s local Costco wine selection has seen better day as now it seems their wine display has become the same old tired assortment.  In desperation, Risqué found himself picking up a bottle of Firestone 2007 Riesling and thought, “What the hell!”

The Riesling is cool fermented in stainless and is not only food friendly, but excellent for sipping.

Risqué made yet another stop on his way home and picked up some local Thai cuisine.  Maybe it is because the Thai boy that works at the restaurant is sweet on him and goes out of his way to make Risqué feel like a Queen King or maybe Risqué knows how sweet a Thai massage feels… Hmmm!  Desperate times call for desperate measures!

Risqué soon got his wine home, chilled it and paired it with the Thai cuisine.  The pairing brought joy to Risqué’s face as the food and wine created an oral orgasmic pleasure to the innervations of his tongue.

Risqué is not so desperate after all!!!
