Walking in a Winter Wino Land

Dear Santa,
I've tried to be naughty but my small town Catholic upbringing continues to keep me being nice-- so I guess I won't be getting any leather leggings or the Kim Kardashian Guide to Dating. Wine is fine. So howza bout....

1 case of 1995 Pommery Madame Louise (may be past its prime but fun to find out)
1 case of 2005 DRC Echezeaux (I am a low maintenance kinda gal)
1 case of 2009 Ironhorse Vineyards Rose of Pinot Noir (like rubies in a glass)
1 case of 2005 Nicolas Joly Clos de la Coulee de Serrant Savennieres (biodynamic!)

And if the elves can't find those how about some bottles that I know they can find in the Indianapolis area...

1 case of 2009 Dry Creek Chenin Blanc (crisp, elegant, great food white wine)
1 case of 2009 Broadbent Vinho Verde (light, fizzy, fun white wine)
1 case of 2009 San Pietro Schiava (wacky red Italian grape-light yet lush)
1 case of 2007 Tavignano Rosso (bold, bright red Italian blend. How about a man with similar qualities Santa?!)
1 case of 2007 Guenoc Victorian Claret (bold, bright red California blend-ditto on the man request.)
1 case Canidae Platinum SNAP Biscuits (guess who wants this? Harp says you can find them at City Dogs Grocery's NEW location on Massachusetts Avenue)

Safe travels Santa- and I will be sure to leave you a mini bottle of Canella Peach Bellini as I know those prosecco bubbles with peach nectar tickle your nose and keep your cheeks rosy.
Peace - Jill and Harp
