Fresh squeezed OJ, I'm working.
Bummer, Ray. I've been there. Hope you make the most of it.
Sarah, I checked out the blog. Looks like a blast, and BTW, I had an equally appalling experience with that same French wine a while back, different vintage.
My T-giving dinner will include six wine drinkers, so here's what I'm toting out to Nebraska from Indiana, all 2001s or 2004s:
2001 Freiherr Heyl zu Herrnsheim Rotschiefer Riesling Spätlese Trocken "Red Slate" A nice cheap riesling I bought recently that drinks like a rock star. I'll open this before dinner, to go with pre-meal appys.
2004 Beringer Alluvium Blanc. Will hopefully wean one of my sisters off the crappy KJ Chard she drinks.
2004 Domaine Des Amouriers Vacqueyras Les Genestes. A wine I tried earlier this year that made me instantly think thanksgiving.
2001 Neal Family Cab. Mmmmmm.
2001 Meerlust Rubicon, one of my favorite QPRs. This'll be my "extra" wine, in case we run out of the others.
2001 Ch. Lamothe Guignard Sauternes, for Thanksgiving eve.
