I was going to save the next bottle of "Supernatural" Wine for next week but (a) the remaining Pinot Evil is sitting in my freezer waiting for my next stew and (b) it's been a very long day, and, but for the fact I have no scotch, I'd be having a "scotch flavored drink".

That said, on to our wine.

Color: A nice medium gold
Sniff test: Apples, white flowers, and a little peach on the nose, as well as a hint of minerals.

First impression: Green apples, pineapple, a bit of grapefruit. A bit sweet and fruity up front, but a crisp clean finish. The wine was also a bit frizzy in the glass.

After a bit of breathing room: All of the above, only nicer and richer, with a bit of peaches in the middle and a bit of flint in the finish.

Verdict: A winner. This is a nicely balanced, easy to drink blend of several grapes. It's the wine that Apothic White wants to be. I paid $7 at my local Fresh and Easy. According to this site the primary grape is Viognier, followed by Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc. Viognier doesn't age well, so if you get a bottle of this, drink it quick; it's going to start declining soon. (I plan to snap up another bottle or two and serve them when "Walking Dead Dinner" returns.)

Episode: 6x20 The Man Who Would Be King. "And of course, I remember the most remarkable event. Remarkable because it never came to pass. It was averted by two boys, an old drunk, and a fallen angel. The grand story, and we ripped up the ending, and the rules, and destiny, leaving nothing but freedom and choice. Which is all well and good, except... but what if I've made the wrong choice?" If that's not the definition of causing a ruckus, I don't know what is.

And then there's this bit that recaps all the ruckus going on in the SPN 'verse.
