We finally get around to tasting the blue wine from Spain.  Since this is a sunny spring afternoon, it was a good time to pop it open and have a clear palate to see what I can compare it to.  Word on the street is it is too sweet and not a good regular drinking wine.  Well, I'll be the judge of that Mister.

The Decline (Netflix)

A fatal accident at a remote survivalist training camp sends participants into a panic - and sets the stage for a chilling showdown. Sounds good don’t it. Or does it. Well It starts off like a bunch of regular anarchist learning to survive out in the wilderness until some real f’ed up stuff happens and the main protagonist freakin dies. So how does this end? Its in French so the intensity of watching this closer is recommended. A Canadian movie as well
