Wine Label Signing in the East Bay at Tangerine
Sept. 26th 6pm
7038 Village Parkway Dublin CA
I'll sign labels...tell you stories, sign books (not just mine...other people's too) it will be a fun little shindig.  Hope to see you there.   I will also be doing workshops there Sun-Tues.

So here is the skinny about the wine: it is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Napa Valley fruit, aged in French Oak barrels.  It is a 2005 vintage...........13.8 % alcohol. It has strong notes of black current, and is a rich and zesty wine that will age beautifully.......... potentially another 10 to 15 years.  It has berry jam and supple tannins with a long sweet oak smooth finish.  It pairs well with mildly seasoned beef, beef stews, and dark chocolate.  It can be ordered from the winery by going to the winery website, listed on the winery store by September 1st..or by calling (866) 724-2993, or emailing after September 1st.

The label is fabulous! Wish I could just hop on over but it takes a bit more than a hop from Arkansas. I really enjoyed your article in Cloth Paper Scissors. I loved the skeletons. Got me all excited to start on my Halloween projects that have been collecting dust till the muse strikes, I think you gave my muse a kick in the pants, LOL. Have a great week!
