I Need A Glass

Sometimes I just need a good glass to blur the edges a bit. Tomorrow our little baby girl, Stella, is having knee surgery. She is still acting like her little puppy self & not like she's about to have ACL surgery. Not a clue. I, on the other hand, am a total wreck. Needless to say I could use a glass of wine.....or two. Magnificent Wine Co.'s House Wine Red 2007 has been a go to wine of mine since it hit the market last year. I originally tried it a few years ago on vacation in Louisville. It offers so much bang for your buck. At $13, I really feel it over delivers for the price. This yummy little Washington red is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, cabernet franc & sangiovese. Its dark, luscious, spicy & bursting with currant, plum & blueberry fruit. Its exactly what I need to take the edge off my nervousness for my little baby puppy dog's big scary surgery.

Michael - Hope the surgery goes well. Kristi and I are thinking about your poor little puppy dog.

Every now and then (more now than then) I need to take the edge off and do it a bit quicker than a glass of wine - martini time!

Hi to Kelly!

Awe, good luck to you and your puppy, might I suggest a bottle of bubbles chilling to celebrate a quick recovery?

Jeff-A martini would have definitely done the trick! Maybe with a splash of St Germain? Give my love to Kristi & your baby puppy dogs!

Samantha- I have a bottle of Gosset Grand Reserve that I was thinking of popping open. Your comment was quite timely, since I was just thinking of the Agrapart you've mentioned a few times. It sounds ridiculously yummy. I wish that I could get some here.
