Wine – The next aisle over:
A woman, standing in front of the Merlot selections. A guy walks up – no wedding band, she says, “Hey, does Merlot go with barbecued steak or just Pinot Noir?”
He says, “Cabernet. And the Rosenblum https://www.rosenblumcellars.com/about-rosenblum is good. Do you like wine tastings? Rosenblum Cellars has this great Wednesday night wine tasting. It is pretty cool and a mere ferry ride away- in Oakland. You should check it out.”
She, captivated – listens, continues with the conversation. He helps her select a Cabernet and a Zin. Smart guy, he gives her his card. She says she’ll call- she is over the moon. He’s pretty thrilled. too. And so it begins.
