Sotomayor Goes Wine Tasting at Macari VineyardsCategory: Around Long Island , World Spotlight , Tweet Of The Day
No sooner did we post our "Tweet of the Day" when this gem popped up on our Twitter feed from @MacariVineyards:

Judge Sotomayor may have been at Macari Vineyards, one of our favorite wineries on the North Fork, located in Mattituck, to celebrate the support of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Earlier in the day, the committee approved President Obama's nomination of federal Judge Sonia Sotomayor, by a 13 to 6 vote. The committee will now send their recommendation to the full Senate, which is expected to confirm the Judge's appointment to the nation's highest court next week. Once confirmed, Judge Sonia Sotomayor will become the first Latino member of the U.S. Supreme Court and our third female Justice. As South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham noted after Tuesday's historic vote, “We are two hundred and something years old as a nation. This is the first Latino woman in the history of the United States to be selected for the Supreme Court. Now that is a big deal.” Senator Graham was the only Republican to vote in favor of Sotomayor. (As a side note to Senator Graham; the United States of America celebrated its 233rd birthday on July 4, 2009.)
We wonder if the Judge meandered out onto the stone and timber deck off the Macari Tasting Room to take in the views of the 180 acre vineyard with her Cabernet Franc - which the vineyard describes as "a big vibrant red, with a bouquet satiated with spice, green olives, and cloves. Full bodied and bursting with chewiness and red fruit mid-palate. The finish has an earthy quality with well structured and sweet tannins, and a lingering, enticing finish."
I think I'll have to add that to my own tasting list next time I'm out at there! We have a call into the Macari Family to try and get little more scoop on this 'supreme' visit. We'll be sure to update as soon we hear back.
