A Successful Day

The other day, where I work, we were slammed with business, and ended up with a great day.  Of course the place looked like a hurricane had hit it and I thought we should almost get Hazmat suits to clean up.  Everybody was pitching in, to get it back in order.  You know the old saying “A place for everything, and everything in its place.”

I would say that we were happy, worn out and ready for some down time, after we closed the doors.  We opened up a bottle of wine to celebrate and to relax.  I think we had opened up four assorted bottles of wine for our customer’s enjoyment that day as well. Now it was our turn.

 Santa Julia Malbec 2010

We opened up a bottle of Santa Julia Malbec 2010 from Mendoza, Argentina.  The blurb on the front and the back of the bottle is “Sustainable by Nature –represents our strong commitment to the people and the land.”  Not only did they not use a sustainable cork, it was a screw cap, but I do not hold that against any of the wineries, since Chateau d’Yquem started using screw caps on part of their production.  The wine poured a deep color and had a lot of fruit to the nose.  The first sip was very fruit forward, but I was surprised at how quickly the wine aerated naturally and mellowed out very smoothly.  I am sure that this is a popular priced wine and I was very happy with the product.  I shall look forward to opening another bottle of it, after another successful day.
