"CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A California winery on Tuesday recovered four cases of Cabernet Sauvignon that were submerged in Charleston Harbor three months ago in the first phase of an experiment to determine the effect of ocean aging on wine.
Divers recovered four yellow steel cages containing the wine that was put in 60 feet of water back in February by the Mira Winery of St. Helena, Calif.
Jim "Bear" Dyke Jr., the Charleston resident who owns the winery, says the wine will now be sampled and chemically analyzed.
Later this year, he said, more wine will be submerged in the harbor for twice as long as the winery continues to experiment with ocean aging." Read the entire story here.

There are the stimuli of attachment that we know of, and those that slip in unsung & unknowable. Years after a woman has delivered a child, she continues to carry [fetal cells] of that child in her body.
A mother, then, is forever a cellular chimera, a blend of the body she was born with, and of all the bodies she has borne. — Natalie Angier, Woman, An Intimate Geography
