A somewhat modified Gems excluding Larry the house-poor Hawaiian
and including Dave W. and Dave B. and spouses.
It was an army of Daves against the dark and stormy night!!

A most sincere thank you to our hosts:
Jean-Pierre, Elke and Andrea Wolff

Since the subject came up, here's a glimpse into the Amazing Dave L.'s cellar.
That's Larry drooling all over Dave's cellar floor.

Carrisa Chappellet and Archie

I had to pick up some Central Coast syrah for a wine dinner on Wed.,
so I stopped by the Los Olivos Wine & Spirits Emporium!

There was a gazillion people there!
It was the Santa Barbara County Vintners' Association annual festival.
