While creating this issue, I liked this song best: Poor, Poor Pitiful Me By ... NOT Ronstadt, but by Warren Zevon who originally wrote the song...not as beautiful as Linda's rendition, but raspy, rough and authentic.
TODAY'S FEATURED WINE
Bunnell Family Cellars: Rhone Blend/Red Wine: Columbia Valley-Washington: : 2008: United States
Dusty, plumy, hint of mild spearmint and cherries, solid tannin and oak backbone and a sharpness that make it fresh and clean on the palate.
Syrah, Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre.
In French,"Vif" can mean bright, vivid, fresh or vibrant and this lives up to that. $37 suggested retail.
For winery tasting samples, gifts from friends or family or samplings at a party or event, review it truthfully, but only if I like it. If I have paid my own very-hard-earned money on a bottle, the gloves are off and it gets what it deserves ... whether perfect or puerile.
