I am doing an inventory and updating cellar tracker data base, just went to Dundee and brought home three cases of upper end Oregon Pinot Noir's, going to be some real nice drinking.

In my opinion the reason the previous offer sold out was the Mystery Wine, caught lots of interest and is kind of fun.

Nice weather in Dundee today, grapes are happy!!!

good food, good wine, bad girl = great evening

If you find such a font, please pass it my way.

I apologize for coming off as rude or as a showoff, tonight or ever. I am quickly learning, as I mature (and admittedly, I have a lot of maturing left to do; I'm only 23) that I come off much different than I intend about 99% of the time. The fact that font lacks any emotion makes this exponentially worse, apparently. I will cease to correct people (even in jest); in reality, I will probably just read more than be so loquacious. I'm here to learn and meet people. I can do both in reticence.

DD, apologies for my admittedly puerile comments.

i must disagree an say it sold out is cause PW is putting some sort of opiates in the wine.

It still applies, you will need artificial influence to keep up.

As to being inspired to drinking, I just opened up a Tablas Creek Cotes de Tablas and the first sip (no decanting and no waiting) was velvet. I'm retired and in SoCal so there is still plenty of drinking time.

From Wiktionary:

gibbous (comparative more gibbous, superlative most gibbous)

1. Characterized by convexity; protuberant.
2. (astronomy) Phase of moon between first quarter and full or between full and last quarter.
3. Humpbacked.

Would one store a port in their cellar with the rest of his/her reds with the cellar on the red setting?

So, basically, its so-named because of the shape of the moon, and the waxing comes because its increasing? Makes sense.

edit: your post gave me the idea to check the OED - sadly, no latin or other root, this word seems to have just appeared -

I would say so, but because of the higher alcohol content, I think you have a greater margin of error. Someone with greater expertise, please correct me if I'm wrong in thinking that; we have a bottle coming already, and more, if the optimists are correct on this being in the coming offer.

Yes to the first part of your post, think waxing and waning, and yes to conroo from the subsequent post. Thank goodness for many years of latin. Somehow, I remembered the reference to a story unfolding, and found it it my dictionary (a paper one) but heck if I can find the quote online, though I did find it at dictionary.com, too.

Ok, I'm probably getting too oblique here, but one of my all time favorite poems as a kid was "Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod" and I remember the gibbous quote from another poem in the book. As a child, this book was huge and too heavy for me to carry, so I would pull it off the shelf and read it right on the floor, and I remember it had so many poems that made me daydream and want to travel.

Thanks woopdedoo for the inadvertent trip down memory lane.

Wow...I just caught up on the shenanigans right before going to bed and I have to say that I've seen monkeys at the zoo acting with more class...and they were flinging poo at each other.

I'm kidding...it wasn't that bad. I've just always wanted to have a reference to monkeys flinging poo in a post. My goals in life are surprisingly simple.
