A Long Trip?
Thanks to the two resident canines being highly incensed by the hissing sound of the balloon I managed this picture a couple of evenings ago. It would be quite a long trip and quite a feat to reach that destination, but it does make a decent photograph.
It was also a long trip for last night's wine, a 2007 Michel Schlumberger Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay. I had enjoyed this wine on its release a little more than a year ago and jumped at the chance to get four more bottles for a decent price during a closeout at the winery.
Unfortunately it was a long trip from California and the wine wasn't up to the task. Yellow in the glass, a nose of butterscotch and an old and tired taste. It's seen better days.
$15 and 14% alcohol
