Thanks to all who wrote about your preference between cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir. Here’s where I stand on the issue. When I was a young man, I was total cab. I liked the big drink with all those tannins. As I got older, my taste changed. Now I prefer the softer — may I say more feminine? — pinot. If I were having a steak, I still would go for a cab. But I would drink a pinot with duck, chicken, pork. It’s just a matter of personal taste. They are obviously two glorious grapes.
This is the stuff I think about on my vacation.
