Pandemic Winery Gets Reviewed!!

TRAWNA -- (GOSH Wine News Services) -- Foxy Wine News Network North has just learned that the respected Pandemic Winery, run by Harley Burr near Sudbury, Ontario, is fast approaching bankruptcy. His wines do not sell in great quantities -- he thinks it is because they do not get reviewed.
"But I've been redeemed! Some blogger managed to track me down and requested review copies, and I did not even have to pay to play!! I sent off a mixed case, but only one review has appeared...here it is, from my Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio Late Retard Blend 2011, 12% ABV, $11.95 plus deposit --
* Classic but sugary, modest but equally complex and stunning Pinot Gris/Grigio blend. The Pinot Grigio component has essenses of garlic, fat dried berry and forward licorice, while the Pinot Gris component is reminiscent of cardboard, whimsical pepper and strong-willed lime. Drink now through April, with lamb lights. Rated: 89/100 -- NMAC
I asked who NMAC was, but instead I was referred to a directory which I am still looking for. Ah, well...I hope the sales roll in to stave off the default on my bank loan."
