The Best Set of New Years Resolutions EVER!

I received J. Emerson's January Newsletter and was quite amused. Check out their resolutions:

1.) Remember that small production wines are not better – there are just fewer bottles.
2.) Worry less about whether or not a Champagne is a grower-maker and more about whether the Champagne is good.
3.) Drink more Amarone.
4.) Use the descriptions in wine reviews for guidance and ignore the points.
5.) Drink Gew├╝rztraminer and try to enjoy it.
6.) Make it our mission to convince people that a “big” wine is not necessarily a better wine.
7.) Be more like Radar – play more, worry less and enjoy the moment.
8.) Share the joy of German Riesling.
9.) Drink more Virginia Cabernet Franc, Viognier and Chardonnay because they’re excellent wines!
10.) Try harder not to be pompous wine asses.

And for all of you out there that enjoy wine, sign up for the newsletter and check out the monthly wine tasting. They feature some mighty fine stuff.

Funny! Thx for posting, got a kick out of it. Love Gewurtz and Reislings, but I find VA Cab Francs to be rather flabby. Perhaps I will try to give them another go, I will really have to be swept off of my feet though!

We thought the resolutions were funny too! Try the Cab Franc from Barboursville, we enjoy it very much!
