It's been a very stressful week so far, but dealing with it by thinking about the wines and food that I'll be enjoying this weekend. And the friends I'll be seeing again. Missing out on another dinner, but no matter - the host rarely serves more than mediocre wines. It's not so much an indictment on the wines as it is on his stinginess. Sorry.
Drinking a very old riesling tomorrow, with steamed fish, shellfish, beef tendon, and assorted greens. Following that with a duo of Spanish wines, from Ribera and Bierzo. Maybe toss in Brouilly or cognac in the mix. Exciting!
Release this weekend, featuring tempranillo and Burgundy. I would love, love, love to get my hands on some of the Burgundies, but just not prepared to spend $60 on wines that I'm not familiar with at all. Getting there though, just being patient. In the meantime, sticking to Premier Cru Chablis.
March is going by fairly painlessly, no? April coming up, my favourite month of the year. Winter, winter, go away...................
