127 Hours, alternate wine

People, 127 Hours is pretty intense at times. I’m not one for physical risk or pain, so you can imagine that while I admire Aron Ralston, I would NEVER have been in that situation or been able to extricate myself in that way. Blimey!

Second, after having talked it up, can you believe that I did not have the Molly Dooker Shiraz?! I had the Cab. I know, I know, woe is me on a Thursday night! But, no worries, I instead went for the Hess Mount Veeder, 19 Block Cuvee, which is a blend of Cab, Malbec, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cab Franc. Yummy as usual and nice with spicy Indian, but no matter how much you might be looking forward to a glass like this, please do not do what I did and have one before putting substantial food in your tummy. Whoa nelly. Am I showing my age?
