My wine 'vice' started about the same time as my audio 'vice'. Music, on the other hand, has been a life long addiction.
What I find interesting are the parallels between wine and audio gear: there is so much stuff out there masquerading as high end (price-wise anyway). For me, the real fun is in finding the real bargains: a bottle that drinks above its price point; the same with gear.
Just bottled a batch of Pinot Noir on the 7th of December and I am waiting for the moment it's ready. Do you know how hard it is to sit on 20 bottles for six months wondering how it turned out? This was my first attempt at wine making. I have a friend that turned me onto it as I love to drink red wine ... and listen to music. We did it all over at his house and it was a lot of fun. I think the most relaxed I get is on a rainy Friday night, fire in the fireplace and a couple of glasses of good red wine in me. Sitting in my old leather chair - I am never more ready to enjoy music at that point ... I listen to music all week but wintery Friday nights - when there is nothing else to do or worry about is my absolute favorite time to enjoy my system.
I have a new one to try out this weekend .. Cycles Gladiator - Cab. I'm looking for a 2005 but I have a 2007. I have heard good things.
Miles Davis ... Freddie Freeloader, a bottle of my buddy Terry's 12 month old homemade cab, Costco New York cut steaks and still warm french bread and Terry and Jim to make me laugh - Stompin Tom Conners on Youtube. You Canadians look that one up.
Good memories folks!
