    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.)

    Wow. These are excellent. What software did you use to create the label? I'd love to learn how you made them.
    thx

    Thanks for the comment. The 1st and last I used Avery labels. The 2nd and 3rd I used Noontime labels.

    Here's a mock-up of my next wine: a Chilean Malbec/Carmenere/Cab Sauv blend aged in M+ Hungarian oak soaked in Whiskey. Calling it the Charon Blend, based on the Greek boatman of the Underworld. Hopefully it'll have an earthy, smoky flavor to fit the "theme"

    Did you get the Pinot Noir label from Avery? I can't find it on the Avery website..

    If you are talking about the Black Cherry Pinot. I used the Avery site but I used the blank template and inserted the picture as the background.
