Cheese, what an excellent idea. I bought some Camembert and some Brie yesterday. The Camembert is nice and soft, so I'm having some with some white wine. I'll try it with red next. Just some pretty good French boxed wine from Mommesin.

Hmm. We have about 1/8th inch of Maytag Blue cheese left. Guess I'll have to armwrestle DH for it.

Heh. He just went to bed. It's mine, all mine.

I can dream. I have always wanted to be the town drunk or slut. I have failed on both fronts.

I like Sterling Vineyards also! I've had their Pinot Noir, but haven't tried their Cabernet.

Bad news: National Wine Day is now 364 days away. Better get your shopping in early...

I opened up a bottle of wine last night that we picked up in Arizona last year. I thought it was grown in AZ because we toured this winery's vineyard. But when I looked at the label, it said the grapes were grown in Napa Valley and Paso Robles, California.

Phooey on that! I was looking forward to having something different.

Steve,

We had a lovely 100% Albariņo grape variety white wine from Galicia, Spain from a winery called Pazo de Seņorans. Truly a splendid summery selection in such dry desert like climate ...

It combines wonderfully with shrimp, octopus and marinated turbot in adobo.

Margi.

Sorry, Steve! That was a tease, I have boxes of pomegranate frozen fruit bars. Closest thing I had to the color of wine. They are my favorite vice lately.
