Watching From The Shore
Me, surf? Not unless there’s an Internet browser and some cat pictures involved, buddy.
No, you guys go right on ahead. I’m more than happy to sit here on the beach with my book while you guys “hang ten” or “catch a wave” or whatever the heck it is you kids do. Besides, I’m way too fair-skinned to be out in the sun no matter how much sunblock I put on. That’s just the price you pay for saving mystical realms from evil in your parent’s basement all day, I guess.
Well of course, I’m going to have fun. I’m sure watching you guys fall off your boards over and over again will be loads of entertainment. Plus, I’ve got Longboard Vineyards 2008 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir I brought along to keep me company. While you crash into the sea, I’ll be enjoying coffee-infused wild berry flavors with just a hint of Bing cherry. For me, squeezing into a wet suit doesn’t quite hold the joy a long cherry, vanilla, and mocha finish does, guys.
That doesn’t mean I’m going to be a downer, though! I shall be like Glimark The Elf on page 136 of my book, vigilantly watching for aquatic dangers that may come your way. You know, like sharks and, uh, gulls and stuff. Are gulls dangerous? They look dangerous. Someone could put an eye out on those beaks of theirs.

Lush plum, blackberry cola and dark spice aromas immediately reveal the Russian River Valley heritage of this wine.

The finish is long with cherry, slight vanilla, earth, and mocha notes.
