It was a long day yesterday and I was really looking forward to a sunset swim. So, after spending a lovely 25 minutes in the pool, I poured myself a little Grey Goose (considering it was cocktail hour) and put my feet back in the water and chilled. Soon after, a friend joined me for a swim and more vodka. It was a great way to end the week and begin a fun weekend.
Feeling a bit daring, I decided to open a bottle of 1988 Chateau Coufran Haut – Medoc. And let me stress the date of this wine….1988! The cork was soft and I was expecting to be hit with a nose full of vinegar. Although, my nose couldn’t discern any fruit, I was pleasantly surprised that the wine was drinkable! After a good amount of time, I was able to taste cherry and fennel. It was a little “dusty” with a very short finish. Quite impressive for this 1988 Bordeaux!

Here is an updated photo of my work in progress. Some nice patterns are emerging, bringing out the color and texture of the yarn.
Have a great weekend!
