Sockeye Salmon Love

A Valentine for Fish Lovers by Theodor Geisel

It’s raining at sea level, but at the base of Eaglecrest snow is falling. The old icy snow on the nordic trails was frighteningly fast in places, but the little bit of fresh snow on top made for more manageable speeds. Let it snow, we need it.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you like the card. As my daughter was putting together Valentines for her class yesterday, I asked her if I could take one of her cards for my fish loving readers. And Happy Valentine’s Day to Bristol Bay, I love you.

Finally, here is a link to an article about more salmon hued bubblies that Jay McInerney put together for his Wall Street Journal wine blog.

Larmandier-Bernier Rosé de Saignée

One of the wines even has salmon in the name, but the selection that intrigues me the most has sockeye salmon in its description. The Larmandier-Bernier Rosé de Saignée is made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes and is described by McInerney in this way, “An extreme rosé, sockeye-salmon red; complex wine that tastes like a good red Burgundy with bubbles.” Yum! If you visit the Champagne Larmandier-Bernier website you will see that the winemakers themselves suggest drinking this wine with smoked wild salmon. Make it smoked salmon from Bristol Bay!
