Homemade gewurztraminer. Bottom of the carboy, had been on the lees too long. I'm thinking if I drink enough of the crappy stuff I might Learn to like anything, lol! Okay, it's not too bad. hic....hic..hic.

I purchased this at Biltmore in Asheville NC last August, after tasting it at the winery. It was by far my favorite, a blend of Merlot, Petite Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Zinfandel. This wine inspired me to add Zin to last fall's Meritage blend.

I purchased the decanter at Aldi's, as I haven't purchased a new one in decades. It's a bit big, but when you need to let wine breathe before serving your 30 closest friends, it's perfect!

If you are familiar with Aldi's, in addition to food they have an aisle of "stuff" that changes every week. I got this a few months ago, last one on the shelf. $9.99 USD.

The surface area for one bottle is HUGE, great for breathing. It's designed to hold 2 bottles, I think, and would probably handle 3. I don't expect to ever need 3 bottles to breath, but if so? I'm prepared!
