Wine and Art - Life in the Speedster Lane

Nothing in particular but a little space for all my bestest links!

In a necessary move yesterday evening, my comrade was forced to open a 20 year old magnum of Rioja reserver. What a splendid choice this turned out to be... SPLENDID! The wine poured from the aged bottle and started the journey that took it from the glass to our mouths and through passages warm and welcoming to our bellies!

On opening the taste of dark berries was abundant but 30 minutes to an hour later this switched to a deep rich plummy flavour with velvety tannins. Hmmm, the memory wears well with me! The changing nose is also worth mentioning as this changed completely from rich summer fruits to a more mushroomy aroma. This was certainly one of the better Rioja's I have tasted of late and I intend to taste more.

Bring forth si vous plait!

You c#nt! Was that the bottle you have been saving to drink with me for the last 2 years!

If it was, then you have drunk the Rioja that pumps through my heart.

Vampires I tell you, vampires!!!

Quell thy fires, son of flaming ditch! The Rioja you speak of is still encased in the revered and holy cupboard. The magnum rests in a shrine of pine whilst the '83 Muga is shrouded in fine newspaper with a lining of tissues and an outer casing of sponge pillows.

They shall be preserved until the mass that follows the meeting gets gutteral and the longing that that has persevered can be witheld nolonger.

The ag-ed corks will be slipped from their vices and the blood of some-such-like or other will flow into the veins of the righteous!

You rest my soul with words of righteous veins. I fear I have been deluded by my own jumpy conclusion. I will now take a vow of silence until the blood runs through me again.

Noble Payne... there is nothing nobler... unless one would take on the stigmata and that itself would be unworthwhile unless one had the papal promise of '85 gevrey chambertin flowing from ones wrists.

Rest you now and know that this cellar wait for you!
