I'm not complaining. I just want to explain why I have blasphemed and have neither drank any wine in the last week nor written about any wine in the past week. For those who need to soothe their shocked selves: a) I did partake of a Corona Light at the baseball game - it was quite refreshing and was definitely better suited to pairing with my soft pretzel than a glass of wine and b) I bought six bottles of wine this Saturday - one for me and five for my friend, Trish, for whom I'm putting together a special case on the occasion of her wedding. Apparently the best gift I can give is that of drunkeness - provided it's on smooth, fruit forward jammy wine with soft tannins.
I'm going to a wine pairing restaurant with friends this Friday so I hope to have something more to write this weekend.
