I sheepishly start this post with an apology. A BIG apology to blogger friend, Diana. I met Diana last September in Montana. The Trout had just had surgery and could not be at the meeting. Diana and her husband gave me the most beautiful bottle of King Estate, Pinot Gris, right out of Eugene, Oregon. Since the Trout was still restricted on diet and his taste buds were non-functioning after surgery, we brought the bottle all the way to Florida.
I remember we had fish and the Trout opened this bottle of wine. It was about 2 weeks before MY surgery in December. I remember drinking it and enjoying it. I also remembered several weeks later that I did not even acknowledge to Diana that we had enjoyed it. Guilt, guilt, guilt. I kept telling myself that I have to contact her and tell her we did enjoy it. sigh..
Problem solved last week when we stopped into Sam's Club and there it was. Diana and Pete, tonight we had flounder and shrimp, our favorite salad with Pacific Rim Dressing, and King Estate Pinot Gris. Loved it. Really, really loved it.
