2015 Mercer Sharp Sisters Red Blend

Viva La New World! This is a blend that would make the haughtiest of dead Bordelais spin like a lathe in his grave.

I managed to drag my friend Shannon along for the event - okay, maybe “drag” is a little bit of an exaggeration. She more or less sprinted, ready to go!

Vertical: Passion and Pinot on the Oregon Wine Trail – the Review (Rant)

I, for one, went from "annoyed" to pissed. I don't know who did the editing/abridging, but I'd bet my firstborn that it wasn't Rex Pickett. Sorry, Zach! That was figurative.

For instance, I had a truffle-infused martini (vodka) the other night that was a miraculous thing.

The other item was the local nurseries that had plants and hybrids that were well suited for the desert climate, assuming, of course, that you have at LEAST an "aqua" thumb. I wish.
