Gorgeous Wine

Tonight I opened a split (375 ml or a half-bottle) of Belle Vallee 2005 Pinot Noir Port, a bottle straight from the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Perfectly chilled, it is one of the most unique wines I have ever tasted. It cost $35 for the split. The reason I love this wine so much is because I rate Oregon Pinot Noir and a good Port among my favorite wines. The combination is stunning. Only six barrels of this handcrafted port were produced. Along with the wine, I am having some wonderful Brie from Whole Foods, along with some (spicy) Planters honey-bbq, kettle-roasted peanuts — $3 at Wal-Mart. Tomorrow is a big day, so I need my calories, fats, and protein right before I go to bed.

This is a perfect fall evening in Michigan….peaceful, temps in the 70s, and only the sound of crickets and frogs can be heard. I’ll sit in my martini chair and just relax. No politics, no financial news, no bailout-mania, no surfing the web.
