Game Of Thrones 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Review
10/10 Light hints interwoven oak a very well made wine.
A delicious nose of blackcurrant, briar and Tahitian vanilla all interwoven through extended aging in the finest French oak barrels. A long and intensely pleasurable finish on the palate, delivers the caress of smooth tannins with a touch of cocoa.
Named for the historic and beautiful section of the California coast that inspired John Steinbeck’s timeless writing, 2015 Cannery Row Cellars Chardonnay Cannery Row is a California classic that melds tradition and beauty with the state’s celebrated spirit of innovation. This refreshing white balances apple, nectarine, and juicy melon flavors with toasty hints of vanilla and oak, resulting in a fresh wine with a surprising complexity.
Panamá-Pacific Rum 23 Year, is a newly imported rum is amazing, it jumped out at me as I have not seen the label before. I learned that it was just imported into the USA so if you can’t find it ask your local liquor store to order it for you.
Panamá-Pacific Rum is crafted in Panamá, from local ingredients, the sugarcane is processed, fermented, distilled and aged in the midst of the sugar cane fields. As an honored testimonial, this rum is never chill-filtered– no caramel color and no artificial flavoring. The 23 year age statement represents the minimum age of the expression.

Not that he needed to but NPH came on stage with whitie tighties standing in his underwear he stated how “Acting is a noble profession”. It is a long show yet Neil Patrick Harris took it to a new level keeping the viewers involved, he is sure to be back in years to come!
Recreational Equipment, INC. or REI Garage Sale, it is held inside most stores yet the fact that most people attending the event have extreme outdoor experiences with the unknown is what makes this event the ultimate in retail sales events worldwide.
It’s a first-come-first-serve policy so like me you may want to camp out. You have to be an REI member another thing that adds stress to this event, most of your piers know the store just as well as you do. If you’re not a member still come, you will find some great deals, buy your membership online prior to the garage sale or pay for a membership at checkout.
It is like the great outdoors so make sure you know why your there have a few key items you are looking for in mind it will be overwhelming. Have fun, everyone looks intense yet this is fun for everyone the REI staff will tell you it is one of the best days to work as it is such a rush. FORTUNE magazine has a list of 100 Best Companies to Work For, it started in 1998 and each year REI makes the list, these employees are happy people. If they don’t have what you are looking for and another store is close by, you should go to the other store or come back later in the day, I think they bring more stuff out as the sale goes on.
How much is killer gear marked down, most of the stuff I have purchased in the past was marked down 50%, if it shows a little wear or slight damage it could be more, I purchased a North Face down jacket last year and it was 80% off original price. Make sure it is what you want, all sales are final so no returns or buyers remorse.
I would dress like you are going hiking, skiing, surfing… what ever it is you are into, you want to have socks on if your looking for footwear or layers if your trying on jackets. Please write in and let the readers know what deals you found this time, if you have tips or tricks to share or just write a comment in support of the cause.
