T Minus One Day And Counting: Monte Bello Library Tasting!

To me, it’s like a chant, a hymn to the divine. The drone of a low D string, the hum of Uilleann pipes. A numerical mantra, viticultural sutra. The relentless march of an Underwood’s clacking keys, the thump-tom-thump-tap-slide of a walking doghouse bass.
