I'm guessing this is pretty much same as...National Breathe Air day for some.

Well hope everyone happily celebrates!

Dammit, I would have had some for breakfast if I had known that was today. It is, after all, grape juice and that's healthy!

At my house we're calling it thank God I'm still here to drink wine day. '14 Myriad Halćon Syrah on deck if I can handle it.

I did my share between "blending" trials and a very late lunch. Back to it at 10:00 tomorrow morning.

Are you gloating because you already have one? :-) :-) :-)

I'll probably make a buying decision based on your notes... although I NEVER pass on Mike's wines.

No pressure Brian. We'll bust back into it tonight and maybe tomorrow. I'll let you know my thoughts.

I had a 2016 Sierra Nevada Beer Club Spring Release Tropical IPA (may have had 2 of them). Delicious.
