Jim, who are you kinding. I've seen how long you age your wines. BTW, just picked up some Nat's wine. It's a 2013 Cab Sauv at $20.00. No idea what it's like. The only place I found it is a Target in Fredericksburg. I have a job going on there if you would like me to pick up a bottle for you.

I was supposed to go to an orientation today for a new winery but it was cancelled due to not yet receiving all the proper permits. There is no real commitment to how much you have to work and they do pay you some kind of minimum wage but I'm just thinking about doing it for the experience and wine discounts. Plus I'm trying to get my wife to do it with me. Sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

Interesting. I wonder who makes it.

My father, the life-long Red Sox fan has a bottle of "Manny Merlot", from when Manny Ramirez played for the Sox.

Supposedly Central Cali. Also it appears Gio Gonzalez and Dusty Baker are home wine makers.

It is, but you have your choice of Effingham, Pearmund or Vint Hill since there are all the same Owner and Wine Maker.

Nice. I get the Bounty Hunter catalog, but haven't ordered from there in quite some time.
