raining ' cats and dogs ' " everywhere, damp and cold and flu and cold
weather, and that is no good!The weather was gorgeous yesterday here and

The Tracks " and the one with the lyrics about buckets of rain that he sang
and played his 12-string guitar, I love that song, used to listen to it all
the time!

SO : CHILDREN ARE GETTING off from school for their holiday break ( if they
are not off already?!?  ) : I know that Virginia and Maryland get off this
Friday for their holidays. I know because my wife and my daughter were
speaking of it on Sunday and I was all-ears as this is big news. They were
talking about how crazy this week will be to keep their students' attention
as they are all so excited already about the approaching holidays. Who can
blame them. I should have asked Colleen this past weekend when she came in
search of her annual dry French rose champagne and settled finally on her
bottle of the Grand Cru, Recoltant-Manipulant Verzenay Brut from MICHEL
ARNOULD Et Fils, $49.99, ...

cornerstone, the roots, the threads that bind, inspire and fire and inspire
and motivate us all to do better, be better, do more ...

WINES From Chris & Tony :

1) Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 California from CHATEAU JULIEN ( also comes
in Chardonnay and in Merlot ) , $9.99, really balanced and flavorful and
honest expressions of the grape for such reasonable prices : I like this, I
like it a lot.

fully-developed and ready now and is a blend of 61% Viognier, 33% Verdelho,
3% Vermentino and 3% Sauvignon Blanc. Tasty and flavorful, great with this
damp cold!

3) Brut Suid Afrika South African sparkling wine from PIETER
CRUYTHOFF, $13.99, 10% alcohol by volume : really flavorful, dry and
refreshing and loaded to the rim with individual character, too : at a very
affordable price we believe.

CELLARS in Loudoun County, Virginia, $16.99 a bottle, 12% alcohol by volume
: PERFECT for these holidays. Come get some, sip and relax and smile. Go to
: www.fabbioliwines.com for more info.

5) 2011 Chianti Colli Senesi dry Tuscan red from Tenuta VALDIPIATTA is
medium-to-light-bodied and a simply delightful smooth and
thoroughly-engaging red to sip or enjoy with most any meal today or later
this evening. A favorite!

6) 2012 Merlot from Virginia's Loudoun County at the NORTH GATE
Vineyard, $21.99 a bottle, 13.5% alcohol by volume is a fine, balanced
medium-bodied dry, fruit-forward red that I enjoy sipping as well as with a
meal. It's so surprisingly good considering how young this winery is! Get
some quick for these holidays ...

7) 2011 Meritage dry Colorado blend from GUY DREW Vineyards, 14.1%
alcohol by volume, $22.99, is a lovely, tasty and so clearly-distinctive,
personal blend of 67% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc
.... I like it, got to meet Guy Drew and taste with him at the Smithsonian
Institute a couple of years ago : he knows wine and how to make it. Bravo
Guy! He also has the name of my father-in-law that I miss that has passed
away several years ago sadly ...

8) Bourgogne Mousseux Rouge / Red Sparkling Burgundy from L. VITTEAUT
ALBERTI, a dry brut, French, $24.99 : is spicy, earthy, forest-floor warm
and tasty and lovely , I really like this French sparkler that is
medium-to-light-bodied ...

9) ' Vignette ' 2011 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir From R. STUART, On
Special for $33.99 , 12.8% alcohol by volume, is a symphonie, a ballet, an
orchestra, a choral ensemble, a jazz quartet, a blues revival of flavorful,
balanced, distinct and really unique flavors to enjoy now with no further
wait. You did another fine job here Trish with your team!! Congrats!!!

10) Porto 10-Year Old Tawny from CALEM, a gift-set with a free glass,
$36.49 is a great gift for someone now if not for yourselves. I like it, a
Portuguese house owned by the Portuguese that is not as well-known, but so
stylish, so fine, so fruit-forward and elegant. I like it.

DRIVING HERE TO WORK this morning I loved seeing the Zoo Lights sign and
all the joy the display must bring at night to many. I also liked very much
seeing the American Bison poster/ sign hanging just behind to welcome us to
this entrance of the National Zoo : so cool!

PLEASE ASK FOR OUR BOOK at the computer here for guests to sign and say
whatever you care to , and to share whatever you would like with us all.

EVERYONE WAS AT THE POST OFFICE this morning as I took a package to mail to
my mother and brother. I stood behind Michael's wife and she had a flat,
long rectangular box with gifts inside. I loved the box, it still had a
wine label on the side of the box : cool again! Now that was inspiring to
me. I almost started to talk to her about it but instead I will wait till I
see Michael here and tell him this story and bring a smile to his face as
they both LOVE wine!
