Oakwood owl counting
pilgrims at the Stryx end gate,
"Whooo passes this night?"

“In days of old, bike riders were bold,
and a fixed gear was all they’d need,
with lots of torque they attached a cork,
and rode away with speed.”

My corks are not random. They are from the Stags Leap Cellars. In 1973 they placed first at the historic Judgment of Paris and changed the wine world forever. The balance of power shifted from the Old World to the New World. It seems only proper and appropriate to hang one from a McLean bicycle.

Sounds like a good movie.

Steven Spurrier - now there is a man who shot himself in the foot.

I drink mostly moderately priced wines. I cannot afford to drink what I would like to. I tend to be driven by what's on sale. I've been drinking various Argentine Malbecs. Recently I bought case lots of a Rothchild Bordeaux to hold for a while and a Louis Martini Cab to drink.

Stag's Leap...Good. Armeda...a True Gem. Hard to get, but worth the effort. Cheap, too.
