Fine Wines


This photo involves a story.  Way back in 1999 or 2000 while I was still working in Chicago, my best friend David (who was working in Minneapolis at the time) and I flew to San Francisco for a weekend trip.  We stayed with great friends who were living there at the time.  On one of the days we took a trip to Napa where I bought this very expensive bottle of wine.  It was somewhere around $95.00 at the time.  Well, I've held on to that bottle all these years.  Yesterday, David and I attended a show at the Phoenix Art Museum and after the show we went to my house where I decided it was time to uncork this bottle which had now increased to a value of $150.00.  (If only my 401K had done so well.)  I'm here to tell you that it was one supurb bottle of wine.  As I right this, I'm now wondering where I can conjure up something this delicious again, without going broke.

Great minds must run in the same ruts, as I posted a bottle of wine on our Images blog today.

However our bottle of wine probably cost under $15! :)

I would have loved to taste this wine! A fine wine to go with a fine story!

What good is a fine wine if you don't drink it? I'm glad it did not disappoint.

Must have been a really good wine Sharon..I'v heard tales of folk keeping a special bottle of wine for many years and then when they go to drink it, it's gone sour and tastes like vinegar! What a treat you had!

A happy end to the story. I was afraid it wasn't going to be!

Nothing like sharing a good bottle of wine with a friend.

What a nice way to appreciate a good wine. Hope both of you made a few wishes while drinking it.

I see it's a Napa Valley wine. Never had one but I know the region is famous.
