Happy Father's Day 2019 to all. Today I'm posting pictures of our kids, yes they are all furry, independent and somewhat self-interested. Two boys (8) and two girls (2), sisters, all rescued. They generally bring the utmost of joy to my life on a daily basis. It has been a rainy and relaxing day here, everyone is loving the slow pace of life today.
I think that Delectable needs to be able to tag cat+wine posts so that I can make a bookmark for felines. — 8 months ago
12.5%. Very very good. Hint of brett - tart and closed. But boy is this complex. Earthy, Kashmir red pepper, perhaps even a hint of tomatoes 🍅. Orange bitters on the back palate. Like silk much better than many Burgs I had in the last six months. From Max Kogod and I will buy the last bottle and the other cuvée from this producer best Trousseau I had in a long time! — 8 months ago
One of the world’s greats. A remember where you were when wine. It’s full and complete and symphonic, stimulating, and catalyst of imagery. Grounded sprawling Provençal herbs, white flowers fennel, and orange note. Sublime texture. Slippery, viscous, weighty, just barely verging in syrupy. Life moment for me. — 8 months ago
