An analysis of corks archived in the kitchen drawer
2004-2006 (Amherst): 91 bottles of wine consumed (61 were Charles Shaw). Monthly rate of 3.79 (2.54 chuck).
2006-present (Cambridge): 54 bottles of wine consumed (14 were Charles Shaw). Monthly rate of 3.6 (0.93 chuck).

The irony, of course, is that we drank three times as much Charles Shaw when we had to drive to Cambridge to get it.

Wow; that's... dedication.

If you're bored, we have a perhaps 5 gallon container that is now full of corks from the past few years that needs cataloging. We probably average about 30/month, though...

Having to drive to Cambridge, and buy it by the case, made it both more valuable and more frequently available in the house. So I'm not surprised.

We REALLY need to have that Charles Shaw flight tasting soon.

Is there much variation within a year and between years with Charles Shaw
due to its blend nature?

By the way, mix some sugar and Penzy's mulling spice and some OJ
or orange peels into Charles Shaw Merlot and you have excellent mulled wine... For some reason, their Merlot works particularly well in mulled wine.

Actually, I suspect there isn't much variation. Which is why the idea of doing such a tasting (we happened to end up with three different years of Cab, purely by accident) amuses me so much. :)
