The Wine that I am Drinking

Someday, Wingal and I will get the stuff up that we had at mini-psswr.

But tonight, oh ladies, I found a new house wine:

Niel Joubert's 2005 Pinotage ($11.25) is just...just...yummy. Pinotage is a viticultural cross of the Pinot Noir grape and the Cinsault grape. It's a deep red color, not too dry, and meaty. But with a nose of bananas of all things. The label told me this I thought it was lying. Then I smelled it. Yeah, bananas. But serioulsy good. We had it with pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon/chocolate frosting.

Somebody had a nice weekend. I've got a wine for you that you must try.

KILLER BEE - Cabernet Sauvignon

You and The L will be thanking me for weeks...maybe even months.

Dude, please tell me that you're going to do the Lucy thing with the sign out the window for Halloween?!

Or, actually, spare cash...
