I STARTED MY DAY here walking in and saying " hello " to Malkit and also "
hello " lo Leon. Leon has been a customer here now for years and it was
great to see him as usual as he schlepes here all the way from across town
to shop with us. SO : here is Leon's story as he just returned from a
glorious two-week trip to both England and Scotland.

LEON TARLANT is a retired U.S. Airforce veteran and he returned recently to
the town of Kings Lynn not far from Cambridge where he was stationed during
the war. So he relates that : " It weighed no my conscious, if I wanted to
go to heaven ... " Leon was referring to the fact that 57 years later her
returns to Kings Lynn to pay a delinquent hotel bill at The Globe hotel (
it is a 400 year-old coaching house with nine bars today. Leon says of the
people there in Kings Lynn : " imbibers in those days. " Leon owed them a
pound and did not pay it because he did not have the money then. He also
did not return to pay it before leaving England 57-58 years ago.

Anyway when Leon returned he said  " they thought he was some nut - a Yank
nut, ha , ha. " They called the papers, had someone come and take a picture
that they wrote up and put on the front page.

" I have the copies of it. I'll bring you one. It's funny. Just an old guy
embracing a young lady manager of the Hotel Globe. We didn't kiss. Just
embraced. " I asked Leon what she thought of all of this?

" Oh yeah, she was smiling. It was astounding to her, to them. " Leon
continued to recount. " She called over the manager. The original hotel
bill was $2.50 for the night. They refused my money. I gave them 5 pounds.
I could not pay the interest on a pound after 57 years! "

" Afterwards we went to The Maid's Head and had a pint of delicious ale
avec prawns, very good seafood there. " Leon finished his story with a
smile. Thanks for sharing this Leon. I cannot wait to see the local paper
and the picture of you. That will be fun. You stayed in London and had
current stories about London to share as well. They will all have to wait
till the next store email.

I can see you Leon drinking a pint of the India Ale from SAMUEL SMITH in
the Maid's Head bar afterward, $4.99 a 1 Pt. 2.7 Fl. Oz bottle, 5% alcohol
by volume.

Santos came back from delivering your order that we assembled here together
earlier and Leon showed you the picture. Too bad he did not bring the copy
back with him. I will have to wait till Leon's next visit.

bagging leaves in my shorts. I felt great and happy to be outside with  working
hard to do a job that would be soon erased with more leaves falling.

Sure enough this morning as I looked outside much of my hard work was gone and
only the large bags filled with leaves told the story of the work already
accomplished.

I will rake and bag more tomorrow morning!

( $15.99, 12.5% alcohol by volume, ) that they are pouring by the glass down our
block here at PULPO is it? I think so? It's also got great structure and body,
character and another great food choice with again low alcohols. Made in the
European style by 4th generation Italians from the Veneto region. BOTH are
recommended. PULPO is on a roll, doing a great job with general manager Dave
Hansen on board now. Cheers.

SAKE :

1) Niguri Imported YAEGAKI NIGORI , $18.99, 16% alcohol by volume, 720ml
bottle,  : " Well balanced silky and creamy texture is complemented by a touch
of sweetness, yet enough acidity maintains it's refreshing finish. Keep
refrigerated to maintain its original taste after opening. Shake well before
serving. "

UPDATES :

1) OUR SATURDAY TASTING :

a) Ron Miller of the DISTILLERY LANE CIDERWORKS in Jefferson, Maryland,
was a HUGE SUCCESS and we have lots of them to sell you including the " new ".
it was just bottled that morning Ron tells us,
1)the Celebration Hard Cider with some cranberry juice added, $19.99,
everybody loved it - so fresh and bright and so easy to enjoy all by itself,
with a slight salmon or peach color. Dry.
2) DCL'S " Kingston Black " Hard Cider, $11.99, bone-dry like a flavorful
Pouilly-Fume - tasty, crisp, tart, tangy, razor-sharp, needs a meal to soften it
up, tenderize it some ... lovely, lovely price. Thanks for the great tasting
Ron!

b) I poured the EASTON 2012 Amador County Zinfandel, $20.99, 14.5% alcohol,
California, go to : www.eastonwines.com ) : smooth, bright, fruit up-front, no
edge, medium-bodied, a delight to sip on it's own as well as to enjoy even with
turkey as it is not heavy at all, elegant and refined, polished and bright.
Cheers!

2 ) Our Friday Tasting with Fernando of Peru with Tradewinds Specialty
Imports poured :

a) 2010 Temperamento  100% Bobal indigenous red grape, $17.99, 13.5%
alcohol by volume, this Bobal  variety from Spain's Utiel Requena region that is
softer fruit-forward, bright and toasty-roasted berry flavored, medium-bodied, a
real treat : best with food like white meats and things marinated and grilled!

b) 100% Garnacha Tintorera or Allicante Bouschet grapes from PASAMONTE,
this 2010 Spanish red from Valencia is leaner, a bit meaner, more muscle and
firmness, less roundness, more of a food wine with great balance and accents of
pepper and spice. It really does need a meal. What fun, $18.99, 14% alcohol by
volume, gracias Fernando!

SUNDAY WAS GLORIOUS for so many of us I am sure. I was outside raking and
bagging leaves in my shorts. I felt great and happy to be outside with  working
hard to do a job that would be soon erased with more leaves falling.

Sure enough this morning as I looked outside much of my hard work was gone and
only the large bags filled with leaves told the story of the work already
accomplished.

I will rake and bag more tomorrow morning!

1 ) the  2012 Shooting Star Sauvignon Blanc, $13.99,  and the

both excellent. Everyone likes them  and I must say that the Shooting Star
Sauvignon and the STEELE Pacini old-vines Zinfandel that Jed owns works so well
with or just before a meal.
With the Zin we all  " tell great stories for ", " imagine great scenarios
for ", " relax and enjoy, smile, feel joy and absolute harmony, faith,
contentment for " ... pretty much everything except " to  die for  " : reason
being you can only die once.

there, and customers of ours that have visited there and been blown away
upon their return to discover both the Cabernet Sauvignon and the
Chardonnay here! Love it, all at the start of Veterans Day on a very
special day indeed. Cheers,  TONY

I JUST SPOKE TO Leanni that was nice enough to read the last review posted
on us on Yelp and that makes my day, really it does. So nice to have
customers leaving their opinions there on how we are doing  so that we may
improve on what we are already doing well and possibly augment here any
suggestions that they may have, things that have ' fallen through the
cracks ', that perhaps we have not realized ourselves that we should be
doing to improve our customer services, and services here to you all
overall! Love it.

COPPI'S Organic Italian Ligurian food just opened down in the old Lavandou
location and it looked like they were doing well. That is great news indeed
for our fabulous neighborhood here. Good luck Carlos and team! Let us know
if we can help in any way?

deal! Fresh, vibrant, sweet cheeriness!

way from start-to-finish! Jody Jackman poured this here this past Friday
along the wines that Andrew Stover poured for their 4 Grapes Wine TASTE-OFF
: what fun this all was!

3) Prosecco from Italy that is OUTRAGEOUSLY GOOD , just like the two
above, really fine this VERV Extra Dry, $11.99 from ANDREOLA, all three

Siatista, this ' old vines ' Xinomavro from the DioFili Siatista Winery,

it is so distinct, so filled with it's own elegant yet racy and spicy -
flaired/ flaired/flared we-they-all-of-us-really-CARE taste, identity and
personality. It's a really, really fine Thanksgiving wine. I agree
wholeheartedly on this one with Nassos that poured it here this past
Saturday with Caroline Holland. What a great tasting, loved it!

5) " Ship Of Fools " 2013 from Old Mission Peninsula, Michigan, an
off-dry red blend of three Pinot grapes that Andrew poured on Friday night
of :60% Pinot Blanc, 35% Pinot Gris and 5% Pinot Noir. It's a delight that
has been delighting our customers now for two - three years here! It's a
delight with or without a meal. It's a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving
with a taste that just keeps on pleasing, and pleasing almost everyone,
even with the extra fruit, that's perfect for so many : all ages like it.

6) 100% Gamay from Burgundy, France, this dry and elegant red with
some acidity and real liveliness, a touch of spice and toasty-roasted
flavors is a great way to cut through the various Thanksgiving flavors.
From the region called Chenas in Beaujolais, this wine is made by
Christophe Pacalet and it turned many a head here on Friday night when Jody
Jackman poured it for you all.
