This Week's Magic Monday Deal

Ugh. Rain. Again. Sigh. Will spring ever get here?

Here's a thought: forget about outside. Focus IN, on this cheerful little sex-bomb from sunny Spain.

Punto (period, point) Seguido (continued, ongoing). This estate aims for making its ongoing point in 'the perfect grape'. With this bottle, they are awfully close.

Old vines, high altitude, slate soils, low yields, minimal intervention. All the marks of a quality wine are there.

And this: voluptuous, unctuous, rich red and black cherry jam laced with licorice, vanilla, and spice. A hedonist's delight. Yum.

What rain?

Notes From All Over

Here's Your Chance (to be a retail wine buyer)

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness..."
-Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Don't Judge a Book...

"They talk very loud, very fast and altogether. If they ask you a question, before you can utter three words of your answer they will break out upon you again and talk away.”
-John Adams, on New Yorkers

New Yorkers are rude. Everybody knows it. Right? They talk too fast, move too fast, and don't even think about asking them for directions. Even in the nascent days of our republic, John Adams 'knew' that no good could come from consorting with those savages to the south of New England.

I bought my copy of Kermit Lynch's Adventures Along the Wine Route in 1993. To say it is dog-eared and well-loved would be a gargantuan understatement. I have read it cover to cover at least once a year since then, but also pull it out to revisit favorite stories and characters. I quote it fairly frequently. I am guilty of forcing it upon anyone I feel would either enjoy it and/or benefit from the reading. I have given it as a gift more times than I care to relate. In short, I love it; it's an old favorite.
