This does seem to be the year where we're all out of our comfort zones. And the wines I've received recently reflect that. So when I opened a box and discovered three different sherries, accompanied by a big bag of Halloween candy, I thought it was just par for the course!
Sherry is a wine that many folks think is old-fashioned, found only in Agatha Christie mysteries, or meant to be drunk by self-important elder statesmen after dinner is finished, and the ladies have retired to whatever ladies retire to, while the men light up cigars and discuss world matters.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
