Found this nestled in hiding in back of the cellar and remembered this was part of a muti-case purchase of 83 Eisweins I'd made before moving here permantly from Colorado. Not really expecting anything I wasn't dissapointed. Sadly, ALL that remained was a few faint citrus notes, acidity, and a complete void in the fruit area. The cork had to be taken out a crumble at a time and then I spent 10 minutes filtering it thru a coffee filter. Not a real bummer as I was with my lovely CB and some really great friends for a lovely Valentines lunch sitting on one of our favorite restaurants' patio and enjoying a gorgeous 78* day. The wine was probably 10+ years past its' peak but looked good in the glass. WW

Well, it is a SW after all.

He must have bought it during his sissy time of life.

How true! Amazing how fast ones tastes develop with time, and believe me, I've put in the time. WW [img][/img]

Wow, the world has flipped upside-down! Saints won the Super Bowl, dems lost Mass., hell (D.C.) froze over and WW admits to have once liked SW's. Isn't anything dependable any more?

Yes, Hotwine, we can always depend on a health insurance increase near 30%--every year!

Yeah, I get that too, Foodster.... so my retirement income has managed to stay flat, dollar-wise, while actually declining due to inflation. Bumsville.

Soon, retirement income will have to be referred to as retirement deficit.

My payroll deduction for longterm care insurance went up taking about half of my pay increase for 2010. I also received a performance bonus of over $700 but the need for a $1,000 dental crown more than absorbs the bonus.

Our 2010 paycheck actually went down. The retirement pay and social security were flat, but the witholding tax went up!
