A Box of Love.

I went on a rampage the other day, in purchasing – I swear it was coincidence – three fantastic Pinots that turned out to be from the same winemaker. The other day, I bought a box of LaFollette.

(That’s the DuNah 2003 Sonoma Coast, Londer 2003 Anderson Valley, and Tandem 2004 Silver Pines, all from the prodigal character of Greg LaFollette.)

Family Winemakers this Sunday in San Francisco. Drunken report to follow…

    Remember how I thought I didn't like wine?
    I think NJ instituted a new law that said I am not allowed to consume white wine at social gatherings.

    Someone, somewhere has video of this. My new mission in life is to find it.

    Good stuff. Our local bistro grows vines and is having a vendange festival next month, I'll blog that when I get the chance. Also this year I am determined to make it to the Montmartre vendange, which should make a good Grapes Traipse post for you.
    I'm avoiding pinot until autumn… for some reason a "never drink Burgundy in summer" law has wound its way into my mind. Not that I approve of that sort of rule, but I always associate Burgundy with autumn and autumn food and as that is my favourite time of year, a celebration of the end of summer, I want to save myself!

    Sounds like we're both blessed to live so close to the vineyards, albeit on different sides of the world. Save yourself? But what if tomorrow never comes? We must swill ANY and ALL vintages immediately…

    We will put this theory to the test in "the fall".
    You're still planning to come over, yes? I need my hugs! 🙂

    You bet, my delightful blue homie. Are they making us check hugs on the airlines, these days?

    Slip it in your pants.
    You know what I mean when I say pants. 😉

    This is going to get sloppy. And you know what I mean when I say that in an FAA way. 🙂

    I'm only making up for life's transgressions in a visceral, reactive manner. 🙂
