An Eternal Question...To Drink or Not To Drink
Yesterday on the river, we were posed a pretty damn serious question.
"When you find unopened booze on the river, do you drink it?'
Now here's a 1994 Sav Blanc from the Caterina Winery that I found in a picnic backpack, fully sealed and corked. Obviously it was lost on the river, floated along and found a home. Recent high water dislodged it and brought it to the run we fished.
So there it was, staring me in the face. A family dinner that night would have been the right time to sample it's contents.
Previously all I have found on the river was a derelict, tossed aside Natural Light. The question there was easy....hells no
But here's a 18 year old bottle of wine from a great wine maker.
Shit, what to do?
If you have suggestions and or stories just like this, shoot me an email and I will repost on the blog.
