A little bacon can go a long way.
Now imagine a lot of bacon, browned butter, three kinds of chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla and more all baked into rich, decadent chocolate chip cookies! That’ll get you to the moon and back. Understandably you’ll get thirsty on your trip. There are no cops in space so you should take wine. I took the 2004 Rocky Creek Cabernet Sauvignon on my voyage and I would do it again if I could only find another bottle…
The Rocky Creek is a large strawberry jam punch to the nose. The charming astringent qualities that follow remind me of my sister’s nail polish remover, which always left quite an impression. As a lawn-mowing kid I learned to love the smell of gasoline. I thought it was a sign of mental illness at the time but I’ve grown to embrace it, and thank the Seven, ’cause this wine is the raddist!
Dark, sour cherries also play a role here but the primary experience this wine offers is a hefty spoon of strawberry jam right down the length of your tongue.
My mother made those cookies and they were phenomenal. The chocolate and bacon created a sort of toffee nut experience that played off the wine perfectly. A true treat!
