Re: Cabot Vineyards- Somethings old, somethings new..*extended*

Got mine today in SoCal!
One question - looks like 2x of the Humboldt Syrah instead of 1 of that and 1 of "The Hills". Thoughts?

Re: Adding Port to Wine

Scott Harvey uses Port in his Inzinerator and One Last Kiss wines (and the Menage a Trois before it). He used to also use it in his red label "Mountain Selection" wine range but stopped doing that. If I remember what he told me, it's about adding a dose of fruitiness and richness to the palate. I co...

Thanks Andrew and Robert.
This is the problem with having an actual budget because of two children needing full time child care. It's the best of times and the worst of times when you may have to forego one of your favourite wineries because of it. (Yes, Briceland is always a hit in our house.)
