Black Oak Pinot Noir (red) 2009

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Hurray!  I survived another day of drudgery at my place of employment!

Now for my favorite part of the day . . . my commute!  I ride the 5:30 ferry from San Francisco to Sausalito which is 30 minutes of party, Party, PARTY!  We’re the most non-exclusive group . . . limited only by the number of cups!

The sun may be shining but it is typical San Francisco weather . . . cool and windy . . . many call it sweatshirt climate.  We drink a lot of red wine and tonight fits the bill.

To accommodate the weather we have a bottle of Black Oak Pinot Noir (red) 2009.

We open the bottle and the pop the cork brings smiles to everyone . . . anticipation has set in!  We happily distribute glasses with anticipation and then we pour the wine, passing the bottle from hand to hand.

We taste and savor the 1st sip.

This is nice and soft and the high alcohol warms us right up.  It goes down easy and everyone is quite delighted.

We party on, we have our glass of cheer and finish the ride with a much better attitude.

Life is good!

Cheers, Willy.on.Wine

Black Oak Merlot (red)

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

It’s Friday and its a cold, windy San Francisco night, time for lovers to snuggle up under a blanket with a glass of wine. We’ve gone to the park to listen to live music. The fog is coming over the hill like a tiger (no little kitty cats for San Francisco fog!) Everybody brought a bottle of wine.

As with most people number of couples are sharing a picnic dinner with a designated driver. The half a dozen wine bottles clutter the top of the table, we can all taste various reds. We want something that goes down easy but warms us in body and spirit. An adventure in tasting the fermented fruit of the vine! The Black Rock Merlot (red) went the fastest and many were disappointed when it was empty, empty, empty!

Several people hold the bottle over their cup to squeeze out the very, very last drop out.
