Yesterday it was 82 degrees and the sun was shining in the morning, but by evening the clouds and the humidity rolled in and the air was almost oppressive. The temperatures only dropped to 68 last night and it felt more like July than April.
The temperature never went up today, and late this afternoon the rain began and the temperature began to fall. It is now in the low 50's and suddenly there is almost a chill in the air.
It's time for a small glass of Maison Surrenne, Petit Champagne Cognac. Beautiful color in the glass and a warming nose of sweet caramel. Sweetness on the tongue and the requisite burn on the finish. 40% alcohol and 1700 cases in this bottling. $70.
