Fun from the Wine Bloggers Conference! Let's see how this works!
Ordinarily, Pinot Gris is made into a white wine. A Pinot Gris Rosé is a different beast altogether.
However, there are a couple of white varietals that give me fits because I find that I'm always comparing them to their French counterparts.
I know this is hard to believe, but I reviewed another white wine under screwcap. No, I haven't lost my mind. Arguable, arguable. I got it.
It was comfortable enough in the shade, but the shade was rapidly retreating. Fortunately, it's a dry heat. Not unlike a blowtorch.
I would love to be able to enjoy the 98+ point wines, but no wine shops have layaway.
Whether you're visiting San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Hollywood, the OC, or San Diego, there's always something to dazzle the eyes and to spark the romantic imagination.
After the presentation, a couple of people came up to me and thanked me for asking what they had been thinking - that the over-matured bourbon, just by the very nature of its age, complexity, and tannic structure, was by far the most interesting of the lot. It was okay for me to bring it up I guess. I'm a wine person!
The key to a beautiful Pho is the broth. Even if I hadn’t learned that later, it’s something I knew intuitively; the aroma was intoxicating, fragrant, and heady.
Just about every wine book I have has dated itself by honing in on specific vintages, which, years later, are no longer available, making the recommendations irrelevant. In manufacturing they call that planned obsolescence.
Downtown Vegas will be a force and although it will probably forever be in the shadow of the far more glamorous Strip, will be a place where locals can come to get their Vegas on.
Now this combination is the essence of food and wine. This why people over millennia have embraced the combination where each one complements and lifts the other, making the whole far greater than the two individual parts. Kinda like 50+50=150.
