Doug, the godfather of regional wine, and the Wine Curmudgeon were featured in the newspaper special section detailing this year's Dallas Morning News/TexSom wine competition. That's Doug on the right, the much more handsome one. Though that is one of my favorite hats.
I don't post this out of vanity; I know I'm not that good liking, but out of shameless self-promotion. Not all of us can get as much free cyber ink as Gary V. Think one of the big wine Internet aggregators will pick this up?
The other thing I like about the drawing is that I got to play the good cop in the good cop-bad cop discussion that Doug and I had about Texas wine, something that usually doesn't happen. Hard to believe, isn't it, that I always get to be bad cop.
And the artwork was created by Dallas' Michael Hogue for The Dallas Morning News.
