Belated Birthday Present

I came home from work yesterday with a note from UPS saying I had missed a package that needed to be signed for. They were going to try again today between 10 AM- 2 PM but since I work, I wouldn't be here so I decided to pick up the package from UPS myself. I lucked out since it's only about a mile from my work. I wasn't sure what the package was but I had a feeling it was my birthday present from my brother. He had warned me that my present was going to be a little late because whatever it was he got me was taking awhile to ship.

I got my package during my lunch hour today and immediately opened it up. I was so excited to see 2 bottles of red wine from Rideau Winery in Solvang, California. Rideau Winery is near Santa Barbara, CA and is one of the Santa Ynez wineries. I've never been to this winery but my brother used to live in Santa Barbara (now lives in San Fran) and belonged to their Wine of the Month Club so I trust his opinion. Thanks Jeff!

2007 Tempranillo and 2007 Sangiovese

Todd & I love our wine as you can see from the empty bottles above my kitchen cabinets and these are only bottles from wineries we've visited

I also just bought a wine journal over the weekend so this will be the perfect opportunity for my first entry
