How’s this for a friend?
Hoyt Hill Jr. of Nashville commented on my blog yesterday, on drinking great wines on ice in hot weather, writing this:
“I recently handled the wine service at the wake for a close friend with a large wine collection. Unfortunately, it was in an un-air-conditioned tent on a 95-degree day. We were drinking old Bordeaux, Brunellos and Burgundies from my friend's cellar. It was doubly sad to observe my friend's passing and to see those wines consumed so hot.”
It was a shame to drink these wines hot. But what a last will and testament to friends. Hill’s buddy must have been a hell of a man. I wish I had met him. He must have been smiling down on everyone as they consumed his precious bottles!
