Another Monday @ the Office

Another busy Monday at the office

I dont want you all to think it's all fun and games and steaming bowls of cafe-latte.
I set to taste through 40 or so wines with journalist and Master of Wine candidate,
Rebecca Murphy. Today was a pretty good day. For one, we only had one corked wine. Not bad for this many wines. I will list the wines at the end of the post for anyone who is so interested.

These were wines sent up from the warehouse so that they might be considered for some mention in newspapers and other printed and electric wine news.
Afterwards I went back home to the Bat-Cave in the '56 Bel Air. This might have looked like fun, but it was WORK! (i.e., the wine tasting; the drive home was loads of fun!)
