I’m watching ski aerials from the Vancouver 2010 games. C’est fou (my new favorite french expression)! I think I’m afraid of heights. I didn’t know that until they showed the camera angle from the top of the hill. I definitely knew it when they showed the camera from underneath the jump. I think somehow, somewhere this event got out of control in a hurry! Yikes.
PELEE ISLAND Gamay Noir Zweigelt 2008
LCBO 216028 | Price: $ 10.95 Pelee Island, Ontario
The Gamay Noir grapes make this a juicy wine with a spicy finish from the Zweigelt. It is an easy drinking light wine but the finish is surprising long. The spice notes add some real character and make it quite an interesting wine.
Pelee Island winery uses the Southern Flying Squirrel on the label. It makes me think that it should be gulped while watching the ski jumping or aerial ski events. Gulp while you gasp in disbelief over the fact that these people are on skis and in the air, and most of the time upside down.
The “flying squirrel” wine is being served at the Red Brick Café this month.
