Grant, you strutting fool. You fancy yourself the alpha wolf in our
little pack. Always the war chief of every clan, the master of every
guild - except when you can't make it to a session, because you
actually have a date with a girl. Well, show-off, enjoy your dominance
while you can. It won't last long. Not now that I am among the first
people in America to possess the InFocus IN1 Gaming Projector.
When the others see that I hold the power of the IN1, your little group of adventurers will become my
little group of adventurers. Its 100", 640×480 screen image is the
picture of your downfall. Todd, Broderick, Chul, William - who among
them can resist the thump of its integrated stereo speakers? What claim
to authority have you that could possibly match the magnificently vast
visual and aural spectacle that the IN1 summons forth?
Flee though you might, you shall find no sanctuary. The IN1
is portable enough for me to take it to your house, Chul's house,
wherever. Just imagine its eight-foot image on the wall of the gaming room
at the Mage's Keep, and you shall quake with the deepest foreboding.
The litany of wonders unfolds yet! It's easy to connect the IN1
to a Wii or an Xbox with the included cables. It even functions as a
perfectly good home theater projector, should I prefer a
non-interactive entertainment like a TV show or a DVD. Whatever stripe it shall bear, the IN1 will prove the wisdom of the ancient adage: he who controls the InFocus IN1 controls all reality.
meekly accepted the state of things lo, these many years, biding my
time, waiting for the path to power to open before me. At times it was
intolerable. I almost moved against you that time you ditched us at the
hotel in Indianapolis to go to that strip club with those stockbrokers.
But now, at last, I'm armed with the instrument of your demise. It's
called the InFocus Play Big IN1 Gaming Projector, and it's so new, you won't know what hit you.

Ever since Matthew Perry (the Commodore, not the Friend)
steamed into the harbor in 1854, rollin' mob deep with Uncle Sam's
fleet, Yokohama has served as Kanagawa Prefecture's doorstep for
Western gaijin and dolls. Like every other conurbation under
the Rising Sun, it's grown up, not out. What was once an isolated
village of fishermen living in paper houses now expresses itself in the
architectural Esperanto of the skyscraper.

As much as we dig throwing the occasional curveball around here,
with cheeses and Sous�os and Poizins, sometimes we just feel drawn back
to the roots of our love for wine. When we crave the grapestuff at its
purest and best, when we want to remind ourselves why we got into this
in the first place, we turn to Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
Wait - you've never had a Napa Valley Cab?
Or you don't have any on hand right now, which is almost as bad?
Loving wine without experiencing a Napa Valley Cab is like loving
Indian food without ever tasting curry. It's like loving the Green Bay
Packers and never visiting Lambeau Field. It's like going to Memphis
without visiting Graceland. Like the movie lover who fell asleep an
hour into Casablanca, you're missing half the picture.
don't worry. We won't tell anybody, as long as you take steps to remedy
this deplorable situation immediately. And it just so happens we can
point you to the ideal first step. Calistoga Cellars hails a pair of
Cabs that remind us why we got into- oh, wait, we already said that.
now, the Calistoga Cellars 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - Louer
Family Vineyard has only been available through Calistoga's wine club
and at their tasting room. We persuaded them to open up their stash to
the Wine.Woot audience. You're welcome. Rich and complex, deep and
pure, full-bodied and smooth, this '04 delivers classic cab flavors of
plum fruit with sparks of chocolate, tobacco, and oak. Calistoga's
masterful winemaker Barry Gnekow took the utmost care in crafting this
elegant Cab, and you can taste the meticulousness or meticulosity or
whatever in every sip.
As the younger sister of the pair,
the Calistoga Cellars 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon tries harder.
Well, half-sister, anyway: some of its fruit was sourced from the Louer
Family Vineyard just like the '04, but the rest came from Calistoga's
estate ranch, Blossom Creek. That must account for the '05's more
prominent cherry notes and its more concentrated flavors. But like the
Bradys, this family cares more about love than biology. They're both Napa Cabs from Calistoga Cellars, and that's enough.
And the similarities
don't end there. They're both ideal companions to hearty cuisine, from
steak to lamb to grilled meats. They'll both retain their youthful
appeal for the next 5-10 years. And they're both museum-quality
examples of the timeless Napa Valley Cab. It's fun to play around with
different styles, different varietals, maybe even sneak a sip of sake
or mead here and there. But like us, you'll keep coming back to the
classics. You'll keep coming back to Calistoga Cellars Napa Valley
