It's a wonderful thing to reach the top of a pass and find some snow. I love to fill a water bottle with snow and then pour a packet of pink lemonade into the bottle and add water. That is about as good as it gets for me.

Would that be Pinot, Merlot, Zin, Syrah, or Cab AT?

Usually a Syrah, or a Petit Syrah. Tho if someone else brings port I wouldn't turn up my nose, especially if I remember to throw in a bar of chocolate.

Nice combo, some aged Portuguese Port with some French or Italian Chocolate, between
70% and 80%. :nod:
