Or, “Oh Captain! My Captain!”
Not, “Nanu Nanu.”
Name: Percheron Cinsault
Type: red wine
Review/notes: Picked up the bottle on the way home and we listened to the rain hit the porch roof while we drank it. Evening gave way to night and the rain had the unusual effect of keeping me awake for a change so I read online newspapers from the States.
When I was stationed at DINFOS (the Defence Information School), Adrian Cronauer was everyone’s hero in the broadcasting cadre. This was 4 years before “Good Morning, Vietnam” showcased that Robin Williams was worth taking seriously…it took a few years longer for yours truly to do similar. So it came to pass that a little after midnight I found the first announcement of Williams’ death. I KNEW I should have picked up two bottles. RIP.
