The Wine Man dropped two barrels of Cabernet a few weeks ago and one cracked a little. YUM! It's been drip, drip, dripping in the cave and I get to lick, lick, lickit up! Looks like he'll rack it tonight into a new barrel and have a little cry over the broken one that is so pretty and smells so sweet. Bummer, no more drips for me. The Cab is a beauty and probably will be bottled in August for Thanksgiving release. woof!
Okay - this is weird. The wine man is jumping up and down and he can't be stopped. Then, he did that weird hand slapping thing with the Wine Wife and I think they've both gone nuts.Apparently, Styring Premier Estate Pinot Noir 2006 and Styring Wit Reserve Pinot Noir 2006 BOTH won Gold Medals at the Northwest Wine Summit Competition. AND, it turns out the Wit Reserve also won the David Lett Award, designating it the best Pinot Noir in Oregon. I guess that explains the jumping. Now, if I could just train them to feed me when they get an award...now, THAT would be something! Woof.
