Calvet Cabernet Franc Rose


Migraine. My Migraine.
Psychedelic Imitrex.
Relief at long last.

Name: Calvet Cabernet Franc rosé
Type: rosé wine
Venue: house

Review/notes: When I was a kid I suffered migraines two or three times per month (sometimes more frequently) and I used to self-medicate for them by using LSD.  Granted, I used acid once or twice per week (often in vastly higher doses than necessary) recreationally but the fact remains that it was always more effective than anything my physician was willing to prescribe (although I used those opiate based pills recreationally, too).  The sick headaches have subsided with time as has my use of powerful hallucinogens but one of the miracles of modern medicine is another ergot alkaloid based tablet named Imitrex (Imigran here in Europe)…and, I can get them over-the-counter for the two or three times per year I need one.

The wine was better than the salad topped with barbecued beef deserved.
