From A Christmas Story (1983)
“Well I double-DOG-dare ya! NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a "triple dare you"? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.”
Nothing too sinister about this wine other than they call it a wine. Double Dog Dare retails for $3.99, no typo here, it really is $3.99. I wish I could say this is a perfectly acceptable wine but the truth is it’s drinkable only if you really don’t care what you drink at the time. I think I smell toast, is that possible? I taste plum notes that associated with very low-end merlots and cabs, and there was harsh finish that swirling could not correct. The one good thing I can say is there is no offending alcohol fumes going up your nostrils when you breathe in the bouquet (I’ll use that term loosely for this “wine”).
I’m just too disappointed to write much more about this wine. I will tell you the label shows two dogs, one jumping through a ring of fire, the other watching. Watch out for this wine before it bites you!
Chickadees word of the day:
Bouquet – The complex fragrance that develops in a wine through fermentation and aging, specifically bottle aging.
