It’s no longer news that Sean Parker of Napster fame threw himself a lavish party across the street from The Wine House this past Thursday. The activity outside our door began last Saturday with the building of an outside stage that was only to be dismantled by Monday morning. Permit problems perhaps? Tuesday things ramped up again and the construction crews were hustling. Thank you to all TWH customers who braved the trucks and inconveniences to visit our store. We appreciate your patronage especially since our normally easy parking situation became a bit trickier. Remember, the spaces in front of our store are for our customers and you can always block our loading dock if there aren’t any deliveries being made at the time.
Pascal Doquet’s Rosé has a gorgeous vibrant pink color that immediately delights the eyes, setting all the other senses on alert for something great to come! The aromas gently float up revealing delicately crushed red berry fruit and a lovely yeasty note. The wine is classic Doquet with its subtle fruit notes, stealth minerality and long, long finish. It is refined and sophisticated with an earthy note that surprises and delights….lots of layers lurking beyond that initial wave of berry fruit.
The guys kept the shop open late on Thursday. I wanted to stay too but I felt the start of a cold and I arranged to take Friday off so that I could go on a field trip to a rock quarry with my daughter’s 2nd grade class. Oh, how the mighty fall! At least I got to hear The Killers’ sound check that included a tasty rendition of “(Sittin’On) The Dock of the Bay”.
