Happy wine drinking after happy kid cooking

Teaching the after school class has been rewarding for all of us at The Festive Table. It requires a tremendous amount of preparation time - not to mention incredible patience and enthusiasm to handle a room filled with 9 year olds with access to fire and knives - and it is amazing to see just how much stuff needs to get scrubbed just to get back to normal at the end. 

But then when I am out in the world and run into a mom who (with tears in her eyes) tells me that her son is now excited about zucchini, I know we have done more than just our job.  

At the end of the day though, after the ceilings have been wiped down and the walls hosed off, nothing is better than putting my feet up with a glass of Cristom's Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.  

This half bottle from their 'Jessie Vineyard' (13.5% abv, 2007) is a shade of garnet and has light legs.  It's developing, has strong aromas of cherry, sweet wood, sweet raspberry, cranberry and a surprising minerality.
Dry with medium plus acidity, smooth and almost imperceptible tannins, medium alcohol, medium plus flavour intensity of more Byng cherry, raspberry, oak and sweet vanilla, cedar plank, wet leaves and acidic cranberry, it has a fabulous medium plus finish.
Clearly they know what they're doing up there at Cristom.  Maybe I should ship them a few 9 year olds for winemaking classes and see what happens!
