Ramon Bilbao Gran Reserva Rioja 2004

Grabbed this at Costco for $20. I really like Rioja as a general rule of thumb and I was fresh off reading Eric Asimov's column on Gran Reserva Rioja's in the NY Times. Anyway, glad I picked up a bottle of this. Nose evolved over the evening--at one point pretty intense cinnamon, at another point intense mint--but always with spicy, mildly chocolate, vanilla-flecked cherry berry fruit and earthy notes. Gradually got smoother after an initial flub where I just thought that the texture was too creamy. This wine was really quite delicious, although it didn't intrigue me enough to pick up another bottle.

That is a favorite wine among the guests and visitors in our hotels luton. It is perfect for a pasta meal to cap it off.

Triệu Quốc Đống rất nhanh cảm nhận được ưu đãi do quyền lực mang tới. Khi Khâu Nguyên Phong hoàn thành việc bàn giao công việc rồi dẫn y đến Đảng ủy Khu gặp các lãnh đạo thì mọi người đi qua lại đều nhìn Triệu Quốc Đống với ánh mắt hâm mộ.

Đảng ủy Khu cũng có chút giật mình vì tốc độ thăng chức của Triệu Quốc Đống, nhưng vẫn tỏ vẻ chúc mừng.

Sau mấy tháng ngắn ngủi, Triệu Quốc Đống đã khiến tình hình an ninh trật tự của hai xã Đại Quan Khẩu và xã Thổ Lăng cải thiện rõ rệt, được hai xã này đánh giá cao. Điều này rất hiếm có, điều này đối với Đảng ủy Khu phụ trách toàn khu vực sẽ rất tốt, cũng tăng cường uy tín của Đảng ủy Khu với chính quyền địa phương.

Triệu Quốc Đống mặc dù còn trẻ một chút nhưng lại rất chín chắn khiến người ta yên tâm. Chẳng những có quan hệ tốt với Đảng ủy, Chính quyền xã phụ trách, còn tôn trọng lãnh đạo Đảng ủy Khu. Điều này làm Đảng ủy Khu rất hài lòng.

Khâu Nguyên Phong cũng vừa kinh ngạc vừa vui mừng vì Triệu Quốc Đống thăng chức nhanh như vậy. Ít nhất Đồn công an Giang Miếu không bị người ngoài vào chiếm lấy, Triệu Quốc Đống cũng coi như trưởng thành dưới sự lãnh đạo của mình. Mà mình lên phòng Trị an công tác cũng cần các Đồn công an ủng hộ mới được. Triệu Quốc Đống phụ trách Giang Miếu thì y đương nhiên rất hài lòng.

Cho nên y cũng cố gắng lái xe dẫn Triệu Quốc Đống đến các xã, thị trấn, các công ty, nhà máy lớn của khu vực. Điều này nhằm Triệu Quốc Đống nhanh chóng thích nghi công việc.
