what an evening I had planned….. bought 4 good-sized lobster tails, some fresh greens, a real baguette and was heading over to my sister’s house to treat her and the conjoined twins to a meal they can’t normally afford…. “this will work well” I thought as I chose both a CAMP MEETING RIDGE CHARDONNAY and a PETER MICHAEL LA CARRIERS CHARDONNAY to accompany the food… “The NCAA tourney will be on” I continued to myself “what a great evening this will be.” Onr of the twins opened the door and greeted me “whatcha got….lobster?” he had no smile on his scarred and tatooed face as he added “mom’s out back having a smoke with some guy she met on the bus and I’m a Vegan, but will make an exception since you brought some lobster tails…” “clever kid” I mused “takes after one of his dads” the kid was interrupted by his conjoined brother who said “c’mon in… we’re watching the European Junior Squash Championship and one of the guys has just been disqualified for assaulting an opponent with his broom….man; that guy won’t be able to sit down for a week…” As I drove away I realized that you folks need to know what’s happening here at OWC… NEW STUFF ARRIVING NEXT TUESDAY: BURLY (Coombsville, Napa) new 2010 vintage CABERNET… From PETER MICHAEL WINERY: 2012 ‘les Pavots’ CAB BLEND/2013 ‘Belle Cote’ CHARDONNAY/ 2013 la Carriere’ CHARDONNAY/2013 ‘la Caprice PINOT NOIR…. all very limited, all at very attractive pricing IN STORE NOW: from the exceptional 2012 vintage in Napa….
