“What am I supposed to be tasting in this? This is the Zin blend, right?” she asked, after I just told her.
“Yes. Uh… hard to say what you ‘should’ taste’. Maybe some cherry, vanilla, chocolate…” I was just thinking of whatever I could to shut her up, so she’d just throw the wine in her mouth.
She sipped. “Yeah, yeah.. or no, no actually, there’s no vanilla in this. I use vanilla all the time in my baking, are you sure there’s vanilla in this mix?”
I didn’t know how to answer. I just nodded as she was speaking. And when she stopped I stopped.
