Not sure what the masses are going to make of the pictures. They remind
me of how beautiful she is, but they don't come close to letting them know
what the spirit that she has is. I really liked her quick wit (which I
think she needs to keep up with you!) and how down to earth she is. In my
opinion, that is the definition of a trophy and you do have one there. FTR,
I consider my wife a trophy also as she's been the best thing in my life for
almost a quarter of a century.

My wife likes Muscato D'Asti a lot. There's one label that she wants to buy
each time we've found it. We went to a tasting at a local shop and ended up
buying a couple bottles of an Argentinian Chardonnay that we liked. Not
terribly dry and a slight 'oak' taste to it. We've also picked up a bottle
of Torrantes that has a pleasant taste, though I don't know how to
categorize it. My wife had read of the Nouveau Beaujolais so we picked up
on of those also, though reading reviews I have no thoughts that we'll
completely enjoy the taste of that.
So, there is the limit of my experience. It's kind of fun, but I'll never
see us with an extensive 'cellar' Thanks for your input, I may pick your
brain a bit more.
