I had something really awesome happen. Actually, it happened as a result of a few events. Here’s the approximate order of things.
1. I went to BlogHer.
2. I attended the Desserts After Dark party.
3. I got to the party late and there were no drinks.
4. I got a nice follow-up from party sponsor Jacob’s Creek.
5. I wrote Jacob’s Creek and told them I missed them at the party.
6. Jacob’s Creek sent me two bottles of their wine.
Isn’t that awesome? They didn’t say, Hey, I’ll send you some but you need to do a review and write-up and can you sign this contract? They just said, Here’s some wine. Enjoy.
So I decided to review them anyway. On video.
Before you turn away because you don’t have the attention span to watch a video that I edited down to 5:40 (oh yes, that’s the edited time), I’ve given you a few quick highlights to make it easy for you to jump to the good parts.

Disclosure: Jacob’s Creek provided me two complimentary bottles of wine, Pinot Noir Reserve and Moscato. The Chardonnay was purchased entirely on my own. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way, except for by the taste of the wine, of course.
