I've been recuperating from round 2 of a bug that's been going around. On Friday I finally had my first glass since 2/14 and I couldn't tell if it was off or not. I wanted to send it back but I just couldn't trust my palate and olfactory senses to make sure. Since it was a glass and not a bottle it was no big deal.
Yesterday, I went to two different tastings of CA 01 and 02 cabs. I took notes, I spit, I swirled, but I just couldn't get through to much of anything. There is no possbile way I would ever trust myself to buy anything from what I tasted.
I'm hoping that by next week to be back in shape, but right now I'm at day 13 and everything tastes smokey. Really weird.
