ONLY EIGHT MORE DAYS till the elections, and on many levels it will be a relief to move forward into our next chapter as a nation. It is very hard to think and know that there may be a lot of trouble to face once the election results are tabulated and final, once that everyone agrees to move forward as one nation and to mend our divides , heal many our wounds, and try and work as a team and not against one another.
 
WE HAVE SPIRITS GALORE to help you along, you choose which ones, we make recommendations, we do it together as we always have, and we move forward .... one for all, all for one. Grin and bear it all, agree to disagree, that there are so many ways to turn an argument, spin results, see things.  Seeing a larger picture is something that always helps me, it really does, was thinking that as I drove to work this cool morning after Halloween night.
 
 
HOW WAS HALLOWEEN for you all? Was it grand? Did you all say BOO and SPOOK someone?!? What costumes did you don? What treats, what tricks were up your sleeves?!? We had many at our home. I did six spray-paint images of spooks anf gooks to celebrate the occasion.
 
 
WE HAD THE CUTEST trick-or-treaters to start the whole Halloween moment off : so small, so adorable, so animated, excited, cheerful, loved their outfits - costumes, it was a joy, a treat for me to see them all, to open our front door and to start everything off really well. And they came before it got dark : the parents waited patiently on our sidewalk, the kids rushed to our front door.
 
IT WAS A GREAT RESPITE from politics. We were sooooo thankful for that.
 
 
I WALKED AROUND THE STORE earlier AND FOUND SOME GREAT spirits and beers to write about today, love that : always something ' new and exciting! '
 
TWO GREAT VISITS JUST NOW :
 
     Matt Herde , director of ROGUE VINTNER that sells us  ( with Eric Platt ) the Kiwi MATAKANA ESTATE Marlborough, New Jealand wines like the 2014 Pinot Noir, $23.49.
     It was great to see you Matt. You walked in saying something like , and wearing a big smile : " Remember me, I still get your store email and read it, I used to come in with Robert Whale and Eric Platt selling you the western Australian wines of #PLANTAGENET . " I loved that, remembered it all, and we called Robert Whale just then and spoke to him : the circle of life, love it. Thanks Matt, great to see you again. You are welcome here anytime.
 
ALSO :
 
     With Danielle Davidowitz of Dionysos Imports I just got to meet Aussie winemaker David Baverstock with Herdade Do Esporao and the Quinta Dos Murcas : a real treat. David is from the Barossa Valley in South Australia, and married a Portuguese lady and so has been in Portugal now for 33 years, making wines in these two estates for many years. We have carried them here, too. I LOVED the

3)Quinta Dos Murcas 2010 Reserve Red, Duoro, $47.99, young, tight, gritty, some rough edges that are from the youth of this wine, still needs many years to evolve and grow into itself! Buy that one and wait!
 
ALSO : ' new ' Discovery today :
