This is our summer white at home this year. Very, very crisp with typical Marlborough grapefruit and gooseberry flavors, but not overly so. I also get some passion fruit notes. We liked this so much at the shop that we bought the entire supply from the distributor. Obviously, they have the 2010 and the 2011 vintages out, and they both are quite similar to the 2009. If you can get any of it, do so. Judy and I have gone through about three cases so far. Verne, you're excused from this post, though CB may like this one.

So, it's all about you, Verne, but CB would love this one.

Ever notice that even when the subject doesn't concern a certain fat-fingered keyboard artist he displays no shyness and jumps right in?

Re, the Stoneleigh: some years, that stuff is spectacular. What's it selling for these days? Have had one in a couple of years.

We have it on the shelf at $9.99 - employee price is half that.

Thomas I've noticed the procedure for years. After being ignored, lo these meeny years, :!: you'd thunk the yahoo would git the message. WW

$9.99! That's just about what it used to cost in the 1990s, when I worked for the distributor that pushed it in New York.
