Isabel's Cuvee, named for our daughter, is about to be released. We bottled it last Saturday and, as Danielle blogged, it went well.
Our wines often remind me of our daughter. She is very independent, spirited, and can easily bring a big smile to my face and others.
We will let her friends parents try the wine at her birthday party in a few days. This year there will be two versions - the bottled version and a tiny bit left over from our gentle racking. A good friend named the un-racked wine Isabel's Crazy Cuvee. It has no SO2 and is a bit leesy. It is slightly darker and has a bit more body to it. If everyone likes it, perhaps we will bottle a bit next year.
