It is a glorious sunny afternoon out here on the Left Coast. Opened this bottle up on Friday night and had a glass - wasn't impressed. After sitting a couple of days and opening up, the second glass is going down pretty well. The wine is a 2010 Chateau Amour Bordeaux from the Medoc region of Southwest France.
The oxygen has liberated some of the aromas and I'm getting some fruit and tobacco from this wine that I thought a bit thin on Friday night. Not worth a second purchase, as the very similar Chateau Haut Blaignon that I opened up last Mother's Day is a much better crafted wine from the region and a bit less expensive.

A bit on the photo of the program for the Pinball Expo - spent most of Saturday at the show in Marin and had a blast - the morning was spent at Amoeba on the Haight digging in crates. I pulled out a few colored 45's from the Estrus and Douchemaster labels, plus a couple of Rockabilly 45's that I've been looking for.
