it's not a party

... until someone throws up.

Yes, that's right. Saturday was our first-ever Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon release weekend. (The new vintage -- the 03 SLD -- is a wine to cellar. Lots of spice and tannins.) This was a big event for us -- the first time we've thrown a big party for the release of this Cab. (We always celebrate the Reserves, but until now, never the SLD.) I ended up working a 12-hour day, which is why I'm at home in my pajamas right now.

Anyway, on Saturday afternoon, we had a fancy barbecue (beef, lamb and veggie burgers with all the trimmings, including at least five types of cheese, applewood smoked bacon and fancy sauces) for everyone -- consumers, trade, media, etc. And then in the evening, we had a multi-course dinner with library wines (92 and 87 SLD Cabs -- so yummy!) just for trade and media.

And after the dinner, someone barfed in the parking lot.

I guess that's how you know it was a good party, right?
