    Your talents are lost in the finance world, Gome.
    they're also funded by the finance world. [​IMG] The orange blossom was awesome, and so vivid. Would buy again just for that as it brings back great memories.

    Please have one on hand in June to bust my white wine cherry! Thanks.

    Damage may be done. And bring $$ if you're looking to pick up some bottles, my guy can get pretty much anything (Screaming Eagle, rare burgs, all first growths, multiple DRC, Salon mags, etc.). And it's not just new stuff, there is plenty with age and prime to drink, it's where I got the '86 La Mission. Plus, I get favorable prices.

    Heading to Washington wine country in July.

    Would like to visit some great wineries. Any suggestions much appreciated. Places to stay in Yakima and Walla Walla also appreciated.

    Cheers, a

    I guess you're my new best friend.

    You're going to be stuck drinking mainly Left Coast wines when you come my way, Gome. Unless you bring a bottle or two. [​IMG]

    I've seen your CT. I'd say there are worse problems that one could have.

    Indeed. Especially food and wine. And audio, let me know what restaurants you want to book for yourself, I'll see that it's taken care of.

    Will drink, I never turn down a new wine. I will, however, be bringing some worthy Eye-ties or Burgs.

    Burgs please. I'll hook us up at that place where I did my b-day dinner with a custom tasting menu.

    Nice. And I will need to pillage that Gelateria. At most, it'll be just about this time next year.

    That's just kitty corner across a major intersection. Then we can walk over to another place for more cocktails [​IMG]

    I am a mere 135 lbs, but based on stories I think I could handle more of the ABV than KWilk and thus keep pace. I'd have some wine shipped to you a month or so ahead of time. Plans are way far away, but I'd like to spend a few days in town, I really love it there. Such a contrast to what I do every minute of every day.

    Outdrinking me and keeping up with Pio are nowhere even in the same universe.
    I wish you all the best. You have a year, I suggest you start training soon.

    I might be able to maintain a pace, but I highly doubt a match. Just like a grizzly attack, I simply plan to run faster than you. [​IMG]
