6 Bottles 2015 Cabernet Savignon Dry red Great gift!
Writer's block

Ours is about 3 feet by 3 feet, and on our left is the account's block. The marketing block is down the hall.

We're joking. Obviously.

Ours is at least 5 by 5, and on Wednesdays we're allowed to write in coffee shops to maintain the illusion that we're "successful" and "writerly".

Coming up with a write up for the simple sake of a write up does, however, become difficult when we're staring complete lack of creativity right in the face. But apparently asking management to cancel all the deals for the day isn't a viable fix.

As they so delicately put it, it'd be like a comedian having the option to suddenly cancel a show if they're not feeling up to it. Not on our watch, they said. You'll do a write up whether you like it or not, they said. And be funny, they said.

So here we are, doing a write up and being funny.

About

At Painted Wolf Wines, we celebrate and help conserve the endangered African wild dog, our most charismatic predator. Wild dogs and cyclists have much in common: individual prowess, teamwork, energy, camaraderie and a never-give-up attitude. Jeremy is an enthusiastic cyclist and has used this passion as an additional way to raise funds for conservation. He has organised rides through some of the remaining pockets of wilderness inhabited by wild dogs as well as sponsoring major cycling events like the Tour de Tuli, which benefits the Children in the Wilderness charity.

Jemma is our old bush vehicle, which carried us on wonderful adventures to remote and pristine places. She is now engaged in seeking out grapes, and in motivating funding for conservation. The label features a water colour painting by Jenny Metelerkamp, our friend and companion when we lived in the bush in Botswana.

A classy medium to full-bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of black currant, brambly fruit, cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich mid mouth texture, a long fruit driven finish with fresh acid and ripe tannins.
