WTN: Shea's Rebellion

Postby David M. Bueker » Fri Nov 30, 2012 7:39 pm

2006 St. Innocent Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard
The cork busted in half, but with a little extra effort I was able to avoid a total mess. The fruit in this wine remains quite sweet, though the oak is somewhat more in the front than I would prefer. There's also a trace of heat on the back end, despite the fact that I am sipping this at near cellar temperature. The wine does have good body and the structure in balance, so it's certainly worth drinking, but it won't win any prizes for best in show.

OK, from the title I thought this was a George RR Martin reference.
Are you a fan of A Song of Ice and FIre ?
I'm desperately awaiting the Winds of Winter, hoping George finishes the thing before he croaks.

I figure he left 16 dangling plot lines at the end of the last book. Even assuming some converge, I think he will still need 30-40 chapters to wrap the mother up. I think that will take two books. That's if (big if) he's decided to start wrapping up the plots.

I'm bettering the grim reaper gets there first.

I am reading the books, but the reference is to colonial America.
