Wacky times in the 'Wood.

Wildwood, NJ in the early '90s. Spent a good amount of the summers of my teenage years on this exact boardwalk meeting the same personalities. Didn't know how trashy and unusual a place it was back then.

Sauzet is a Repeat Offender of Oxidized Wines

Check off another oxidized Sauzet. This time it was the 1999 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Combettes. Color was apple ciders-esque which is always a bad sign. Aromas of burnt caramel,nail polish, banana skin and rancid butterscotch. Palate was acutally drinkable but the sherry aromas penetrated any pleasure whatsoever. To the poubelle it goes.

Whitesnake Isn't As Bad As I Remember

I caught this the other day while flipping through TW Cable. The song reminds me of when I was about 12 years old playing nintendo in my friend Jeff's basement.
