Bambi? oh yeah I remember her. She had a balcony you could do Shakespeare off of. I never understood why she dyed her roots brown. She did have that nasty gag reflex that distrupted things from time to time although she was a perky little trooper.

Hahaha dys, that's a funny description Wink

When are you having your get together in London?
I'll be in June in Europe, but mainly Munich plus a little
visit to Prague, and maybe a stop over in London
(if the airfare is cheaper with British Airways).

It's too early to drink red wine and since my child's
energy level is still in slow gear, I relax with a
cup of espresso.

Salute!

ACK!

Now to a refined and uplifting view (not of Bambi's 'shelf')...

Here is a link to the site, so I don't take up the entire thread with gorgeous pictures. I'm drooling--there are times when I wish I were rich.

Oh Calamity Jane, I want some. I guess Jacques can get virtually anything, can't he?

I'll try not to slurp.

Oh, May 1st is too early for me, unfortunately.

Diane, virtually you can get whatever you want,
if you can find Jacques. The last time I saw him,
he was going into the cellar with bambi <oh la la>

I'd like a glass of that, thank you, and maybe no one will notice if I abscond with the nice wooden box...

<door swings wide open. A figure clatters in.>

I'll have a St. Francis Merlot from the early 90's if there is any left in the world and some baked brie and perhaps a few rounds of some crunchy bread and do you have any fried olives?

Wait. I should find a seat first. Oh, there's one by the patio door.

Hi Joe!

I think Jacques could bring you this : 1991 St. Francis Reserve Merlot, Sonoma Valley ($24).
Very fragrant, with lots of toasty oak balanced by deep, ripe cassis-berry fruit and mild spice. Rich and plumy on the palate offering concentrated, delicious fruit framed in spicy oak and a hint of earthiness; silky smooth and elegant, with medium tannins

Hmmm, is that the Kenwood winery's St. Francis vineyard...
My Napa friends took me on a winery tour when I first moved up here, the high point of which was an incredible lunch at the Kenwood restaurant, and then the wife - a friend from college - and I hopping out of the car to pose by some old growth vines in that vineyard. Ah, I am thinking of their old growth zinfandel vines.

edit to say I can't find info on it being zinfandel (how soon we forget!)
Now I'll have to email my Napa pals to satisfy my curiosity.

To make up for my confusion I'll bring a few bottles of this old vine zinfandel, which comes with memories. When my friends met me in Sacramento, where I had a painting exhibit, and took me to their victorian house in Napa, we arrived around eleven at night. They showed me the guest room, which had the four poster situated in a round cupola, with lots of fluffy pillows and a large vase filled to almost falling over with roses from their garden. And would you like a sip of wine before retiring? Sure, I said, though I was exhausted. We went back downstairs to the parlour - definitely a parlour, not a 'living room' - and Jim asked me what kind of wine I liked. I said a wine with a lot of taste, sort of like an old single malt scotch is to a young blend... but that I am no connoisseur, what with having close to no sense of smell and no learning...

He came back in a few minutes with a bottle of this zinfandel - though it was an earlier year - which he poured into three gorgeous old wineglasses, and it was perfect... http://www.thewineguru.com/renwoodzin97.htm
