PARTY TIME! We’re commuting on the ferry boat from San Francisco to Sausalito, THE PARTY BOAT! We have a 30 minute ride from start to finish. As we always do we have a nice wine that can go from corked to empty and is good. The Benefactor Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon certainly meets this requirement. We’re enjoying the ride when suddenly we slow down . . . there’s a HUGE container ship in our way. We do a little loop-de-loop and proceed. This is now summer and with all the tourists the boat is behind schedule and I know the captain and crew want to make up time and this is NOT helping.
We start to enter Richardson Bay, the ‘slow down’ buoy, and then we do another loop-de-loop. Is it a race? We ask the ever helpful crew who say there’s a problem at the dock. Another ferry has broken the lines and can’t get away from the dock. We circle around and around. Eventually we make to the dock. Even then we have to wait while the crew jury rigs a set of lines allow the passengers to disembark and board.
We should have brought 2 more bottles!
For under $5 a bottle we have a wine that is ready to drink right after you pop the cork and is fun.
