Reviewing The Real L Word‘s Wine Without Going to a Tasting

Showtime’s The Real L World — which follows a handful of REAL ACTUAL LESBIANS as they drink, date, and dance in front of the cameras — isn’t just a chance for Ilene Chaiken to extend The L Word‘s television brand. It’s also a chance to get into wine.

The Domenico Winery in San Carlos, California, is shipping three different wines under The Real L Word.

There’s a Chardonnay, a Syrah, and a dessert wine. I have tasted none of them, and I’m the world’s worst sommelier, though I’m pretty sure I sense a terrific mouth feel that really opens up, a complex and needy palette, enough tannin to go well with a creamy cheese, and strawberry on the nose.

Oh, and of course legs to die for.
