Along with the Alabama wine, there is Wallace wine of Iowa. Vizzini was of course played by Wallace Shawn.

Or might we be going down under? I see there's a Glaetzer Wallace, but I'm too lazy to research it.

Or, since WD did the rhyming game with Zhatila, maybe we'll see some Trecini?

My suspicion is that we'll see PoiZin for Halloween

I just noticed that Inigo Montoya has a winery, cleverly disguised as being by Robert Montoya (dread pirate Robert?). Sold as, simply, Montoya.

Vizzini was not a great "fool" plus SB's possibly accidental inclusion of "fool":

Peachy Canyon made a "Jester" until at least 2004, but they don't have it listed on their site.

Poizin has traditionally been a pre-Halloween release. I'd be inclined to stick with the Wellington theme, but it's been a very long time since I guessed correctly.

I don't know what tonight's offering is. At least, I think not.

I do, however, know the ultimate fate of Wannabe red... :-D. Sorry, WD swore me to secrecy. But the final blend is QUITE nice, and it will be well worth the wait.

Now all I have to do is hope/pray that he doesn't send nallie after me....

You all have a truly dizzying intellect.

However, mentioning Vizzini has nothing to do with the wine. S.B, do you think they can handle not having any clues?

I literally just drank the "Jester" a couple days ago. Pretty sure it was the 04' vintage. Didn't fair well with my steak but a very nice sipping wine, or maybe I just didn't let it open enough. Regardless I thought it was quite good for $15 bucks. Cab, PS, um, and some other stuff. Here's the write up from the wine store just in case you're right.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. Flavors consist of cedar, currant, blackberry jam and raspberries with a hint of toasted oak. Aromas are made up of dark plums, bing cherries, raspberry cola and subtle black currant

I'd be in

I say take the night off, enjoy the games and let us sweat it out until 12. Well, I'm not gonna sweat it out because I wouldn't stay up late just to find out anyway. It'll be there in the morning.

Now that just sounds a little too sensible. Not to me, though; I'm up at 6AM to teach the penultimate day of summer school.

WD ... He is low on charm

I hope he doesn't mean us harm
psychological damage ... Withdrawl symptoms

I'm betting on Wellington, again (now that we supposedly have no clues)

That'd frakking suck. Sorry SB, but it would. I really am in a saving mindset, or trying to be. I'll be in though. And offer the Cuvee R so I can rectify my earlier mistake of not going in on it.

Off topic, but in case anyone is interested, I (finally) got around to posting on the Field Notes thread. Ignore the bogus one by No winner. That's a system error issue.

You got me. I just got back from a benefit wine/food/music event for one of the most wonderful people in Sonoma, who is in need of expensive medical treatment. I realise how tight and interwoven our community is - a lot of friends were there, but I also made several new ones who have mutual connections with other friends. It was a wonderful and mysterious evening, with many personal, professional, and community connections coming full circle, including the sealing of a co-operative winemaking deal that should be rewarding in many different ways. Not that I'm much of a believer, but I'd be real curious what my astrological chart says about today.

I'd agree that's leaning towards Wellington. Though, someone without a clue would no doubt be a fool...

You might also be surprised to find out how many wine.wooters might just respond to that need, if you give us a chance. Michelleshari, cheron98, polarbear22 all participated in major fund-raisers in May and June, and lots of us stepped up with support. Get WD to put up an opportunity, and see what happens.
