    congrats! and a very evocative post. but just to be a nit-picker (well, i do think it's important) ... when wine geeks talk about "terroir", it's not that a wine makes you imagine a certain place. it's that wines from that place, even if made by different producers, share a set of sensory qualities. still, as i said, nice description and congrats on the raise.

    I suppose that I felt a slight twinge of regret opening her up so soon after she arrived but wine, after all, is meant to be consumed and enjoyed, which she was! And, now that I'll be making a bit more money, I'll be able to buy some more!

    Brian Loring and Gary V were discussing this on the Thunder Show.

    Nice pics (as always) and good write up.

    Yeah that's what I was trying to get at with my post, that it both had terroir and was evocative of place, sort of a Proustian madeleine cake that transported one back to a special time and place both through emotional associations and actual terroir or climat characteristics...a slippery slope for sure to try and combine...especially for a novice writter such as myself.

    Thanks again for the kind words and critique!

    It's so true for the most part but just so hard sometimes when you have but one bottle. When is the right time to pop a nice bottle? I'm starting to believe that it's when you desire to drink it!

    Thanks again. I'm still trying to sort out my prose style.

    I can't find in the NYC area using the standard Wine-Searcher. Closest is Z's, but that's a 30 minute $15 train ride up north.

    Come fall, I plan to load up on another two cases of nicely priced Frenchie grape just from K&L.
    Well, that is your grenache wine. Vaynerchuck said it was available for $25 in NY. No idea where, though. KL talks directly to you, Pio. He wants to know why people don't realize how good the prices are for French wine these days. [​IMG]
