Wine Weekend part 1
I am about to fill you in on a little action that happened on this long ass weekend with the 'rents. There was so much action so there will be several steps on the road to recovery. I could have to fill a bathtub with the amount of wine consumed, but that would be a waste of taste and weird for my parents to see me in a bathtub. So I'm going to give you some of the weekend selections we dabbled in... try not to wet yourselves. Thursday was touchdown day for the 'rents an we did not waste time. We hit Greystone in the gaslamp for the welcome dinner. The food was great, but the booze was the cooze. The bash brothers of Silver Oak and Caymus escorted us to dinner like two porn stars on our arms(one male, one female to cover all sides). The Caymus fluffed us up on some very strong content with an amazingly smooth feel. The finish of every sip was better than the last making me turn Japanese. For documentation purposes Caymus 2007, 15% of pure destruction; smashed and mixed in Nappa. As if that wasn't enough we hollowed the Oak with purpose. It was a nice Silver Oak 2004 giving us a sensual back rub after our down and dirty Caymus sesh. The Oak was on the dry side with a good bite on the finish making my mouth glued to the glass forcing me to have wine vision. This was an awesome start to a great weekend ahead.
