Cheveau. That would be the wine I just got out of my Dads wine fridge and it's aaaahhhmazing. I'm in Little Rock folks. Came down today for a little party tomorrow night and to get my doodlebug and take her back to my place. It is way overdo for my custody time. She missed me. I missed her too. I almost cried when I saw her...not kidding.
Ahhh. Excuse me I just had a sip of my Cheveau. I love raiding my Dads 500 bottle wine fridge when I come to Little Rock. I gave him a little call (he and Mom are in Napa. Jeal) and told him I was in the mood to drink a glass of white, while sitting on his back porch enjoying the lovely weather while listening to music play on the speakers. He suggested Cheveau and I'm so glad he did. It's amazing. This is the first time I've had it and it's officially on my top 5 list now.
Im sure you've noticed by reading this blog that I enjoy a little Vino. I'm very into it. Not just the drinking part of it. I love smelling it and swirling it. I love tasting which fruits are in it and what type of barrel it sat in. I love everything about it. I'm a little mini sommelier waiting to blossom. Drinking my Dad's wine is the best because it's always top notch. Unfortunately Scott and I cannot afford the wine my Dad can right now but luckily he shares! Macadoodles it is for the Johnsons. Dad's get's shipped from Napa. The stuff in the liquor stores is not good enough for him. He's a wine snob and isn't even ashamed to admit he shouldn't be. I find it to be a beautiful quality. HA!
Speaking of Napa, I've still gotta make it there soon. It's on my top 25 things to do while I'm 25 list. I told my Dad I guess I'm just really confused why he didn't take me this week. He keeps sending me pictures saying 'cheers.' I told him it's not sweet to rub it in. Hopefully, when my Dad retires, he'll buy a vineyard in Napa. That would be the ultimate of coolness. Wine is definitely something my Dad and I share a love of. It's a fun hobby that we have in common and we enjoy very much together. Dad says he's taking me to Napa in June. Chris Botti is playing at Robert Mondavi Winery and we both want to go hear him! That would be another thing Dad and I share in common....jazz!
Alrighty folks. Scott should be getting here soon. We drove in separate cars because I just didn't feel like waiting on him to get off work. I don't work on Fridays and wanted to hurry to see my Holly girl instead of sit at home and twiddle my thumbs. I tried to talk Scott into taking today off but of course that didn't fly. He won another award at work today. The Star of Excellence for something. It should start to be getting embarrassing by now. I mean, can't he share with the other 60+ people in his office? Greedy, greedy, greedy. I guess I should take him out to Bonefish to celebrate. Any excuse right? Enjoy your weekend folks. CHEERS!
