In particular, RdV Vineyards’ Friends and Family or Rendezvous are some of my top wines I’ve ever enjoyed - beautifully balanced and perfect for stumping origin-snob friends in a blind tasting.
I'd go with NYS: Chardonnay from eastern Long Island and there are about a half dozen wineries in the Finger Lakes region that produce good stuff.

Sorry to disappoint you, Kipper, but Thor probably doesn't look like that. . . . . .

well, obviously I don't follow those fora on any kind of a regular basis ... but that's mainly because I waste spend more than enough time here (and even more on the Old Timers' Airline and Airliner Quiz and Discussion thread)

Back, just before Diamond was introduced, when we <here> were speculating as to what DL would / could / should call the new higher level they were considering, my suggestion was Titanium!

Glad somebody likes it!

I still enjoy my Kryptonium Medallion tag. It tends to start some interesting conversations.
