In February, I learned that what is mine is mine and what is his is mine. I didn’t even prompt this conversation. He just shared it with me (I admit we were sharing a wine tasting so maybe that prompted it).
So today he suggested that I add a blog section titled “Wine Cellar” to keep a list of what we have in storage (either in his wine cellar, or mine, or is it “ours” since what is his is mine? I’m confusing myself!). Then as we bring out a bottle, the sip becomes a blog entry. So here it goes…(at least my half of our cellar):
- Almost a case of Graveyard Tombstone Red
- Tolosa Winery – No Oak Chardonnay
- Edna Valley Chardonnay
- Laetitia Sparkling
- Cayucos Cellars
- Moonstone Cellars
- Le Cuvier
- J Lohr 08 Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon, ’05 Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon, ’08 Carol’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Time for another middle school dance. Since the last one was cancelled due to snow, this one combines the last theme and the current theme for a nerd dance/formal.
So my girl focuses on the nerd and forgets the formal. Suspenders, glasses and silly pony tails…and wha~la…she is ready. (Of course the hair is wet as she came straight from swim, including a strange look from one of her coaches.) To the dance!!!
And she arrives fashionably late. After getting lectured to for being late, the fun actually begins. Well, sort of. The music is lame. The DJ is lamer. At least in the sixth grade perspective. No boys did anything to bad to annoy her. The snow ball songs included lots of dancing companions – including her crush.
And the burning question I walk away with: Does she really even know what lame is???
On our final day in Paso Robles, we were directed to this great little winery at the end of a road by what else? A graveyard. We found several great bottles. Then later at home, we decided we should have got a case. I think the fact that we already had two cases kept us from getting a case on the spot. So I took matters into my own hands – and ordered a case (what would I do without UPS?).
And the winery says…
Guilt free pleasure! This is a fantastic wine that was designed to be enjoyed daily. A unique blend of Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petite Sirah that was barrel aged in both French and American oak. Fully dry, with great fruit and supple tannins, and the bottom line is that it’s fun! A great example of the fine art of blending. The perfect everyday, goes well with all types of food, won’t blow the budget type of wine. Read More…
And I say…
Half a case down. Six more evenings to relax, sip and enjoy.
