After leaving the tasting early [after only two wines - I had to get back to Ellensburg to get back to Salmonberg before the pass became impassable, and because some other students had jobs to get to], I dragged my butt home. Once again, no problems driving on icy roads with heavy snowfall. Thank God I bought traction tires. Once home, I made pizza with Dan, got my books in order, printed out my term paper, did the laundry, tried to check in for tomorrow's flights [for the first time, I got the dreaded TSA "you'll have to check in at the airport" warning], and finally sat down at the computer with no real purpose other than to just relax for a bit.
Oh, yeah, and I opened a bottle of the 2001 Ursa. This stuff seems to be really hitting its stride; the edge of the wine is starting to turn the slightest bit brown, and it's mellowed into a really wonderful drink. It's got an odd kind of camphor taste to it, but it's still sweet and delicious and I'm going to have another glass now.
