Nothing.

And there's not nearly enough alcohol in it.

I'm jumping off this wagon like it's on fire.

Only if they're all noblemen who have gone wrong.

Your trouble is you live in Gilbert and Sullivan and thinks it's the real world.

I've said the hell with it and started drinking the wine I stashed away over the years.
The last two nights we enjoyed a 1980 McDowell Valley Vineyards Estate Bottled 1980 Syrah. California, Mendocino County, about 25 miles south.
40 years old, good cork and just a little sediment.
It has a great, mature nose and is what you hope for in a soft palate.
A bonus is that the winery's winemaker at the time, George Bursick, was a friend of mine and his name is on the label.

I should have started this with our two-weeks-ago 1996 "Knotty Vine" Zinfandel from Rodney Strong and a 1980 Parducci Petite Sirah before that.
Both had difficult corks and needed straining, but were otherwise very nice.

More reports to come.

Almost normal. Almost.

The three of us have driven each other crazy about 42 times. Cabin fever is a bitch.

A St. Pat's tale from my Cellar.
To enhance a tasty (if I do say so myself) corned beef, potatoes and cabbage meal yesterday I opened a 1977 Sanford and Benedict Santa Inez Valley (Santa Barbara County) Cabernet Sauvignon.
My girlfriend and I bought several bottles of this and other wines at the winery in 1980.
We had a nice afternoon there with the facility almost to ourselves and shared our picnic with the eponymous owners and winemakers.
The place has grown tremendously and is now Sanford Winery even though Benedict is still around.
The wine was my fourth good one in a row. with a sound cork, good color, almost no oxidation, still lots of fruit in the nose and nice soft tannins.
The insulated but not cooled cabinet I built long ago seems to work well, keeping daily temperature fluctuation to a minimum.
I know I'll get a bottle of vinegar eventually, but so far so good.
