Posted: June 8, 2006  By Bruce Sanderson

A Tough Question...

Posted: June 2, 2006  By James Molesworth

I was sitting with my wife at dinner, lingering over a glass of '59 Latour , watching the sheets of rain come down outside. "So, like the wine?" I asked. "Yes," she said. "Is it great?" I asked. "Yes," she said, but with slightly less conviction.
