I have before me a 2017 Legende Bordeaux from Barons de Rothschild (thought I'd give them another chance). It's a 60% Cab - 40% Merlot blend.  ABV is only 12%.  There are notes of cassis at the top, and a bit more than average tannin in the aftertaste.  It did pair well with some Stilton cheese that I had in the refrigerator. I'm giving it a 6 - not disappointing, but nothing special. 

I'm finding it hard to locate exceptional French wines in my area.  I may have to branch out to Austin in the near future.

About 3 months ago, I started having episodes of tachycardia at night. It would wake me up, and my heart was doing about 120 bpm. It was quite uncomfortable, and scary. I started tracking it, and saw that it only happened if I had more than 2 drinks that evening. So, I've had to cut down. Basically a glass of beer and a glass of wine, and that's it. The hard stuff is a rarity. It finally caught up with me. On the weekends, if I have something at lunch and then wait until the evening to have anything else, I might squeeze 3 in, but I can't do three after 5:00 pm. I guess it's nature's way of telling me to slow down. I'll be 70 this year, so I've had my fun. I want to live long enough to meet my travel goals, so 2 drinks a night it is.

What do you get if you cross a classic book with an alcoholic drink?

I went up to a local liquor store to redeem my lotto winnings ($13!) got more lotto tickets and an Arrogant Bastard Ale (22 oz). The guy tried to charge me $12. They're $5.99. I told him forget it, but he found the manager- $5.99. I like a strong ale, once in awhile. I buy these about 3 times a month.
