Oh, yeah, because after your first hangover, you never touched a drop of the stuff again, amirite?
Yes, urrite, if we're speaking of humans. Sometimes nature seems to be governed by much more logical action / reaction scenarios.
I’m cleaning carboys out getting ready for tomorrow. Wife got a job at our local school as cook, tomorrow they are serving strawberries, she asked if I could use the left over juice. I have no idea what I’m getting .......... chef’s surprise?
Did something I’ve been meaning to get to for quite some time now.
Printed out the morewine guide to red winemaking.... all 75 pages. And NOBODY in the house has any idea where the holepunch is. Figures.
A binder clip and a screw might solve your problem.
I see you have the California wine region map hanging as well.
Just go to Home Depot and buy a drill and bit. LOL!
Made the decision to dump my second wine. It's a Syrah/Zin juice bucket blend from 2017. Made too many rookie mistakes. Used acid blend instead of tartaric, sulfited before starting MLF, the Zin was never that good in the first place and my first dump was another 2017 juice bucket Zin. What ever else I did or didn't do caused it to have too high a level of VA for my liking. Even though my cupboard (wine rack) is still bare I have no regrets and chalking it up to experience. There are too many promising wines in the pipeline.
You should have one of these for your wall as well!
Thanks Mike! @mainshipfred gave me the CA one. I'll print this up and add it to the decor.
Mine is already printed
Got some motivation and did some long-overdue tidying up in the winery, then bottled the 2017 Malbec (first of the 2017's to get into bottles). It is dark, brooding, fruity and delicious. Honestly don't think it needs much time in the bottle, but will try to stay away for at least a few months.
Is it Chilean?
California. Lanza. I don't remember exactly, but I think you were here when I crushed it.
