Pomegranate Wine – Tree of Life


Certain products are ridiculously odd and leave you wondering what the point behind them is. Like the philips norelco shavers with counter-intuitive blades or for that matter, the quasi-luxury acura cars. This week, I happened to buy an organic wine made from pomegranates. It was neither like the tasty pomegranate juice nor like red wine. It was bland, tasteless and worst of all, even at 14% abv, there was no bodhai to be had.

Notes — dilute pomegranate juice, mildly tangy and sour.

To sum up, for a wine from Yerevan, it is surprisingly like the famous Radio Yerevan Joke.

Q: Is it true that Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov from Moscow won a car in a lottery?
A: In principle yes, but:

  1. it wasn’t Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov but Aleksander Aleksandrovich Aleksandrov;
  2. he is not from Moscow but from Odessa;
  3. it was not a car but a bicycle;
  4. he didn’t win it, but it was stolen from him.
