Which one gets to be Alan Rickman?

People are paying to drink California wine?

You're judging in a wine competition?

It's always fun when our own staff plays peanut gallery.

Tom: That's a good question.

Bryan: I prefer to think that they are paying for the other wines and that the California wines are just there to remind them what they don't like.

Julia: Haha...expected this one. Yes, I'm sitting on this panel and I'm scoring the wines. But this is a far cry from the competitions we took issue with a couple months ago, in size, scope and results.

I don't think the organizers have medals that they are planning to put on the bottles as we score them.

I am looking forward to this tasting -- it could be fascinating -- but the results won't stagger me no mater what they are. Even if Long Island sweeps every flight (impossible) it certainly does not mean that Long Island is "better" than anyone else. The sample size is too small, the tasting panel is (mostly) locals.

Everyone is taking it seriously -- including me -- but it is what it is and nothing more. And it's going to be a lot of fun.

Of course, I also committed to doing this before we published that post as well, though I think I'd still agree to do it.

spin as you may, it still smells of hypocrisy.

Sean: You know this is a no-spin zone, but you're entitled to your opinion.

Are you going, by the way?

Of course. See you there.

Excellent. It's been far too long.

Sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun, looking forward to seeing you there!! (by the way, I think having you as a judge is an excellent choice!)

Sunshine through from the clouds, leaving continuously warmth;
