On the first podcast cruise, the wonderful cruisers got together and gave me a subscription to the Wine of the Month Club, where I will get 2 bottles of wine from the Vintners Collection once a month for a year!! First I wanted to thank all of you, this is a wonderful gift and I will absolutely enjoy it. I'm not home right now, so I can't start the official updates, but wanted to say thanks and get ready to start my WOM Trip Report :)

Each month I will receive two bottles, one white and one red.

The first month I received a Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. I have had the Cab and it was very yummy. When I get home I'll update you with the photos and tasting notes.

I'm glad you enjoy it. You more than deserve it. Just a thought, though, maybe you should save it for closer to 2.0. That way when the questions start, you can just have a glass and forget about us :)

It's the perfect gift for Tracy......

Ohw and how much fun we all had with talking about wines and asking Tracy questions about wine while we knew why and how and what and Tracy just answered every questions sometimes probably with the thought why in the *** they want to know this stuff....

Hey Tracy, since it's a gift, you may not feel comfortable critiquing every bottle for us, but if you get a bottle that you do particularly like, please let us know about it. I'm always looking for new wines to try!

I'll be happy to do this. You guys didn't select the bottles so if there is one or two that I don't really like, it's not your fault :goodvibes Sometimes it's just a matter of taste.

The first one that we tried was the Michel-Schlumberger Cabernet Sauvignon and it was very good, but we didn't take tasting notes so I don't feel comfortable reviewing that one.

We opened the next red last night but I was in chat so I didn't take notes, but I will when I have another glass. I do like this one too (and I have to get pictures up).

For the Chardonnays, chances are I won't drink them, but rather will either serve them for guests or use them in cooking. But of course it depends on the taste. I'm not a huge Chardonnay fan, but some is good.
