I’m sort of sad to read this, because it means that winter is not very far away. But sadness is short-lived when there is good red wine around, and this evening will wash away any melancholy mood.
So read this PR release while I think about the wines, cheeses, a warm fire and a good read, a book, mind or heart. Oh come on, give me a break, it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow.
Have a look at some of the older gems – I see a 2003 Alto…hmmmm.
