Corks off to my fellow sassy drinkers at Wine X Magazine. Not only do they weave witty wine tales, the people are geniuses. For serious. They’ve designed wine varietals by Jelly Bean kits, trying to help our palates once and for all find the licorice in petite sirah.
Each varietal kit comes with a carefully-paired selection of jelly beans (cabernet sauvignon features four berries, plum, licorice and Dr. Pepper; add buttered toast, chocolate pudding and french vanilla for California cabs. French? Pop a dirt Jelly Bean). A half-pound will run you $27 and feed a party of 25. No, there’s no mold jelly bean in the chardonnay kit. Order them online at www.jellybeanwinebar.com. Genius.
