Raspberry - Bottle 1, 14th May 2011
It has been an evening of general debauchery. We are at 3, The Alders, which inevitably means far more alcohol than is good for beast or man. One of the earlier bottles was this Raspberry, and I have shared it between six and a half. The half was Alastair, who is driving and therefore only wanted a sip. We drank it to a Pork Roast, cooked by Bob (Judith is walking in France). This is a good bottle - a beautiful colour and stuffed with fruit. (Odd, that.) Andrew thought it yeasty to begin with but "a shit-load better than what we had after". As this consisted of a bottle of Wolf Blass Yellow Label and two bottles of McGuigan Estate Shiraz (all of which I have indulged in copiously) I shall take that as a massive compliment. Hic.
