This was our Junior year at Buffalo and Todd was working at a local liquor store. We were literature majors so we'd sit around and talk about our latest reads and listen to cool music and play chess because we were young intellectuals in the 90's. So, when Todd showed up with a bottle of Franciscan Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 1992 I had no clue as to what I was drinking. Up until that point the only wine that I had was concord Manischewitz. The Franciscan altered my reality and to this very day I am indebted to my dear friend for introducing me to something that has become such a tremendous and lasting influence on my life.
