Wine
Last Wednesday afternoon, as part of all the errands I ran in the Greenwood district, I bought my first bottle of wine.

I told the proprietor of "The Vineyard Wine Shop" I wanted "red, pacific northwest, not too dry" and gave him a price ceiling, and he pulled out McCrea 2002 Sirocco, which he described as a "fat flavorbomb".

"Fat" apparently means "not thin tasting", and "flavorbomb" apparently means "has lots of flavors".

elfs and omahas and I enjoyed it as part of Fish Friday. I ended up drinking several glasses, which, ahem, made me "warm and happy".

Elf's review is here.

Several years ago, I started tasting sips of wine for the first time, and the reaction was universally, "that's NASTY". In retrospect, they were cheap, too dry, and I was just tasting it with the tip of my tongue.
