Love it!

Seriously? A MAGNUM of HILLSIDE SELECT???? You are right - your life is very, very good!

I was getting depressed that we wouldn't be able to go to Napa again until next Spring, but now it looks like we might get to go in October - thanks to a conference in Napa
Fingers crossed!

And yes, summer doldrums have set in...

Hi wineaux's (expensive for wino).

I have been negligent about my reporting and writing on the Message Board. Maybe the summer doldrums have set in, I don't know!

A couple weeks ago, we went to our favorite restaurant with two friends to enjoy dinner and a lot of wine. We took a bottle of Harris Jake's Vineyard Cab . . . they brought a magnum of Shafer Hillside Select Cab. WOW! That was some wine! These are friends that will be going to Napa with us next March.

As we were having our dinner, Peyton Manning, quarterback of the Denver Broncos and former Tennessee Quarterback, and his wife entered the restaurant and sat at the table beside us. Peyton sat with his back to the door hoping not to be disturbed, and I do not think any one approached them. So I figure by them being that close, I can say, "We had dinner with Peyton Manning". We have also had dinner at this same restaurant with Senator Bob Corker (R TN). I wonder who will be next? President Obama will be in Chattanooga on Tuesday . . . maybe him? Nah!

Some of the local wineries do read this Board. All of you know our experience at Arkenstone Winery during our tasting and how we felt like we were being hustled out when they discovered we were only going to purchase two bottles. I received an email from the owner, Susan Krauz a couple days ago saying that she reads the Board, Trip Advisor, etc to see what people think about their winery. She remembered the visit and that we were one of the first to taste in their new tasting room. She gave me an explanation of why she seemed in a hurry and I accept that explanation. We will again visit Arkenstone Vineyards on one of our trips to Napa. If you are reading this, Ms. Krauz, thanks for contacting us and for the explanation. We did really enjoy your Arkenstone wine.

Life is very, very good.
