    Malmsey Maderia DSCN0021 (480x640) - .jpg Last bottle of the '75 Maderia. Recorking all my older wines, mostly really sweet (as you can see for this one), and decided to drink it instead. Very rich, smooth, and since it was baked in my basement estufa, the fact that the cork was in bad shape did not seem to have damaged the wine at all. Had to filter out the bits of the cork that came undone in the excitement. The XYL did the drawing, and the old Commodore PET dot matrix printer did the text. Ah, the good old days.

    Nice!

    As long as we are talking about memories, is there a reason your user name is memnosine, rather than mnemosine (or mnemosyne)? I have always been curious about this!

    Yes, I wanted to use mnemosyne, but some one had already registered it (this was for my original use back in the old User Group days), so I went with something close, and used ".sine" because I'm an EE. (I'm delighted that I remember that far back.)

    Managed to get home a bit early today and label the 2017 Pinot Noir.
