A friend and I were trying to decide on a rosé wine for a pleasant outdoor spring meal. We had it down to two on the menu, and decided to ask the waiter to tell us/find out for us the differences between the two wines to help us choose.
a: What’s the difference between these two rosés?
Waiter: Well, they’re both rosés so they’re going to be really similar.
Waiter: One comes in a half bottle, the other one comes in a full bottle (as was clearly marked on the menu). But they’re both pretty much the same wine.
a: um.. thanks.
Uh-huh. One’s from 2005. The other’s a 2007. They’re totally different brands. One’s from Australia. The other’s from Argentina. I’m no connoisseur, but…. “they’re both rosés so they’re the same”?!? OY! Seriously, OY!!!
We went with the Crios Rosé of Malbec from Argentina.
The meal and wine were excellent (despite good-looking but disappointingly absurd waiter).
