Wonderful, almost rich looking label. Upon drinking the wine, the label held more interest for us than the wine. First sip shows a bit harshness but finishes slightly smooth. The taste seems devoid of any interesting character. We rate this C.
I recently had my primary and only photo hard drive fail with years of photo images utterly lost. It would cost me over a thousand dollars to hand the drive over to a hard drive recovery company. A technician at the Apple store told me to expect hard drives to not last more than three years. It struck me that my old film camera images are never lost so long as I still have the negatives and take good care…
I was very surprised when I first took a sip of this wine. It shows character, not dull, very interesting, sort of like talking to someone from Chicago, just a bit brassy. In fact you just might start up a conversation with your wine glass. I score this wine a solid B. I asked my wife to go out and buy another bottle and I seldom make that request.
When I first read up on this disease the Internet said to expect to live 4 years on average. I was shocked. In 2011, I noticed that the average survival age is 6 years. In 10 years 80% have died from first diagnosis. My oncologist told me that he expects to keep me alive so I die from some other problem. Because WM can bring on many other serious medical problems, he just might be too literal in his pronouncement.
Two of the faculty, allegedly, did not read the first e-mail and gave the student’s classroom seat to other students. The faculty claimed they did not have enough time to read all their e-mail.
We recently sampled a Rendition 2009, Alexander Valley Zinfandel. The flavor seemed on par with what I expect paint remover to taste. It was very harsh, totally lacking any subtly and any detectable positive flavor. There was absolutely no enjoyment from sipping this backward off “wine”. Two Buck Chuck is a step up from this rasp drippings.
