WineSmith Planet Pluto Meritage (4)

Times Are a-Changin'

Pluto may no longer be considered a planet, but this wine is still a wine.

Back when the 2006 Planet Pluto Meritage wine was harvested, the High School Musical soundtrack was the top selling album of the year, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 was the top grossing movie at the box office, American Idol held the top two spots for television ratings, and the launch of Woot Accessories & Watches was still seven years away.

But what sticks out to us when remembering 2006 was that Pluto was still a planet. Those were the days where it was still one of the big boys, the ninth planet from the sun. Back in the days when mnumonics like "My Very Energetic Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas" actually meant something.

But now all we can do is reminisce. We sit in our study, sipping on our wine, looking out the window into the starry night, staring at the dark sky, thinking about Pluto and how it went from having it all to being the dwarf planet that we hardly know.

Thankfully, we have this wine as a reminder of the times when Pluto got the respect it deserved. During the seven years since this wine was bottled, a lot has happened, but we're glad this wine hasn't changed, reminding us how things used to be, reminding us of the good old days where if you were a planet, you were a planet, and it was as simple as that.
