A Merlot Boy But No Wine Number

It's to be a busy extended weekend!! We're hosting a landmark birthday party for a good buddy of our's come Saturday and the out-of-town guests have started to arrive.

First up is none other than Merlot Boy. (And that was his nickname ever before all this blogging foolishness began and names had to be devised for our drinking buddies.)

Merlot Boy has flown in from Melbourne - via a short stint in NYC - but his is going to be his shortest visit with us in all his visits as Spain and Sitches with the birthday boy beckons next week. The more normal weeks or month time frame has been reduced to only six nights. This means we'll have to fit a lot of wine in that short time - generally not a problem when M.B. is with us.

We didn't get off to the best of starts as far as The List is concerned though. Boo had to work nights, so M.B. and I just hit Commercial Drive for a pizza at Marcello's. We shared a carafe of wine but it wasn't a bottle and we didn't have a camera. So nothing there.

Back home, I popped the cork on a bottle of La Frenz Montage to show our Aussie a bit of what BC has to offer. "Problem" is that I didn't check previous entries first. We've already had added the 2006 to The List.

Zero for two. We're going to have to do a little better to give Merlot Boy his due while here.
