Challis Lane Old Vine Zinfandel (red) – 2008

It’s a windy night on the San Francisco Bay. I’ve had to work late and I want a wine to share with my overtime buddies on the Sausalito Ferry. It will be chilly and dark tonight so I pick the Challis Lane Old Vine Zinfandel (2008).  This is kind of picante (pepper hot) and warm us up.  I like this because it’s a soft wine and ready to drink right after opening . . . unusual with Zinfandel, especially Old Vines.

I usually take the 5:30 PM Sausalito Ferry but tonight I’m on the 6:45 PM.  I wonder, “Who’s going to be there?”

Hurrah!  There are more tonight than on many of 5:30 run!  We open the bottle and pass it around.  Everyone is ready to party . . . this is NOT the work boat, this is the PARTY boat.  The warmth spreads through our bodies and loosens up the crowd.  We have a GREAT TIME!
