Murphy-Goode The Fumé 2008

“We live as we dream – alone.”  — Joseph Conrad

“Do not rely completely on any other human being, however dear. We meet all life’s greatest tests alone.”  — Agnes Macphail

“To be an adult is to be alone.”  — Jean Rostand

Some days being the Wine Harlot is like Leaving Las Vegas, but with more alcohol, less levity and a bleaker outlook.  Don’t try this at home, it’s best left to the professionals.  If you’re lost and alone;  your life is up in flames?  We have the wine for you The Fumé from Murphy-Goode.  It’s crisp, bright and light (everything you in your present state are not) with citrus and tropical notes with refreshing acidity.  The Murphy-Goode folks suggest the perfect pairing would be oysters on the half-shell, but today the Wine Harlot might be drinking her meals.  I repeat – don’t try this at home.

The details: 13.5% alcohol.  Cork closure.  Appellation: North Coast.  The suggested retail is $12.50 USD, but actual retail runs between $8-12 and is widely available..  This was a media sample kindly provided by the winery.

The music match is Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” from the album American Idiot I walk this empty street, On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Where the city sleeps, and I’m the only one and I walk alone.  Thank god for wine samples.  Just sayin’.
