Greetings

This blog is a record of the wine that I make and drink. Each flavour made and each bottle drunk will appear here. You may come to the conclusion that, on the whole, I should be drinking less.

Blackberry 2008 - Bottle B1, 25th April 2011

Claire has just cooked one of the most delicious meals ever, and is currently assembling a rhubarb cobbler. And all this to a bottle of Blackberry 2008. Does life get any better? We had a range of small, vaguely Mediterranean dishes, including garlic tomatoes, a pesto-ish dish with parsley - rather than basil - as its base, and (best of all) lamb marinated in yoghurt, garlic and schumach (?) then fried in hot oil. The wine was fabulous too - it has aged well and it is a shame this is the last of its vintage. We have finished it shockingly early - before 8 p.m. - and shall probably move onto spirits. Still, it is Easter Monday.
