First Day of Spring?!? The Devil is Ice Skating and I Should Consider White Zinfandel a Wine

If this is the first day of spring, then why am I tempted to crack open a port like wine and sip it by the fire?  By the way, for Argentina wine fans and/or port style fans, you can only get this bottle at Achaval Ferrer in Argentina.  I had the pleasure of tasting this when I was down there last year and it was lovely.  SOOOO, if you should somehow come across it up here or find your way to Argentina, I highly recommend purchasing a bottle because it truly is special. 

Back to the weird weather because it's truly ruining my wine schedule.  I was looking forward to returning to my summer love - Chenin Blanc.  Guess the groundhog might have been a bit off in his "short winter" prognostication.  Thanks Puxsutawney Phil.  I hope Bill Murray (or my friends, Sara and Steve) find you and exact NO MERCY.  You're like the White Zin of garden pests. 

Until the next sniff, sip, quaff or weather-related outburst,

Cheers,

Alli M.
