Another expensive one. I can't stop myself!

Bad blurry picture! The iPhone has been really pissing me off lately. 

Michel & Stephane Ogier, Cote-Rotie, 2005. 

The best wine that I've had in a long time period. So richly textured with flavors of smoked bacon and game, but even through all that old world savoriness it remains totally clean. What I really love is the sweetness of the fruit and the underlying minerality. Like having duck ala orange or something. (Ok, that's gross, but you know what I mean.) We had it at lunch at the winery last week too. Split between 10 people, its the perfect mid-afternoon pick me up. 

It is on sale now at K&L for $79.99 (down from $89.99). So much for fiscal responsibility. I think I need some regulation of my own. 

George Bush, where are you?? Come save me from myself lover!

I have plenty of $50 bottles I can sell you that are delicious, and will make you feel less fiscally irresponsible.

I'm sure this is exactly the kind of blog comment you were hoping for when you started this thing.

I do love a good virtual sales pitch.

I'm still waiting for my $300 check from George Bush. As soon as I get that your phone will be ringing off the hook.
