Wassup, Polaroid T737? I suppose you think you're pretty hot mustard there, with your--your seven megapixels
and your 16mb of memory built-in. "Ooh, look at me, I've got image
stabilization, I'm super cool, no one's as cool as I am, I'm the
coolest thing since... like, whatever."
Well, you know what? Whatever!
mean, okay, maybe you do have 3x optical zoom. And maybe you can expand
your memory with SD cards. But you know what? You aren't the only
camera on earth that has that stuff, okay? Okay?
You think that's the biggest LCD I've ever seen? Three inches? I mean. I mean, that's pretty big, but I seen bigger ones.
So what makes you think you can go around all like that, like you stylin? What's this red diamond business, is that your look now? That your little--your own little, like look? Am I supposed to like that? Is that supposed to appeal
to me? Like, what, plain old silver or black or whatever isn't good
enough for you? You think you're better than that? You think you're
just the most perfect little piggy at the top of the ham-heap, then, is

She was the dame
that'd make anybody go bananas. If I had been smart, I'd have just
brachiated away, but nobody ever told me I was smart. Too bad, cause
somebody who thought himself an alpha male was looking to bring her
into season. When he showed up with those two gorillas I knew there was
gonna be trouble. "Aw, look how he holds the little stick, he's just
like people!" I sneered. "Are we gonna use sign language now?" That got
them mad. But I already said. Nobody ever told me I was smart.

OK, we've had our fun. It was a hoot for us, doing our zany "Gift
Week" thing last week, selling bonsai trees, bon-bons and all manner of
miscellany. It was probably even good for us to get that out of our
system. But there comes a time when those of us afflicted with
dilettantistic impulses have to steer back off the sidetrack and get on
the main line again. You know, refocus on what we do best. Otherwise,
whaddya end up with? Michael Jordan hitting .200 for the Birmingham
Barons, that's what.
So we're back in the wine biz, boys, and what better offer to come home to than this week's classic quartet from Vino Noceto?
Noceto proprietors Suzy and Jim Gullett were obsessing over the
Sangiovese grape way back when the now-Governor was still pinching
behinds on the set of Conan the Barbarian, and their
experience shows. (Ask them what is best in life. They'll say: "To
crush the grapes, see them dribbling before you, and hear the
exclamations of the oenophiles.")
boutique-style beginnings in the gold country of beautiful Amador
County, Noceto's grown to a nine-thousand-case outfit. Here's a select
sample of their wares:
First, take two bottles of the
aught-five Sangiovese. Noceto's 16th vintage flagship wine is packed
with the ripe, forward, cran-cherry-berry fruit that marks their style.
A versatile food wine, it goes especially nicely with tomato-based
dishes, pasta, pizza, and anything from salmon to lamb. Should genetic
experimentation continue unchecked, this will be the wine you're going
to want with your half-fish, half-ovine amalgam "lambon" in the
Next, try the aught-four Reserve
Sangiovese on for size. It's a complex, well-balanced, fruit-packed
blend of selected lots of the best fruit. These grapes were the Dean's
List of their class, and the resultant wine is rich-flavored,
full-bodied, deep-colored and lingers on the finish like the optimistic
bachelors at the stage door of the Rockettes' Christmas show at Radio
Finally, here's a bottle of Noceto's aught-four
Ferrero Zinfandel. From the 1917 and 1947 vineyards of Ferrero Ranch,
this elegant, fruit-forward, old-vine Zinfandel is the friendly sort of wine that asks you how you've been, then listens--but really listens--to your answer, then tells you to let it know if there's anything it can do for you, and you know it's being totally sincere.
Noceto's 25-acre Shenandoah Valley estate was crawling with prospectors
a century and a half ago, but to our way of thinkin', the real riches
are only coming out of the ground now. Mike Dunne of the Sacramento Bee
says "Vino Noceto's flagship Sangiovese is about as pure an expression
of the varietal as you are going to find in California." Dan Berger of Vintage Experiences
calls theirs "the best Chianti-style Sangioveses in California."
And us? Well, we call 'em just the thing to get us back in accordance with our prime directive.
