Rioja Wine – A Tasting to Remember

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, I attended a Rioja wine tasting event sponsored by Southern Glaziers Wine & Spirits in partnership with Rioja Trade. To sum it up WOW!

Tasting Notes: My Wine and My Muse

This would be fabulous with a weekend late evening summer dinner of salads, light meats, and other summer fare. It also pairs well with writing, because it's what I'm drinking now as I sit at the keyboard.

Ack! We Interrupt this Program Due to Technical…

I'm expecting my new computer to arrive late this week, and hope to have everything set up no later than Friday night.

A Weekend in Napa – A Phoenix Rises!

Michael invited me to join them at the winery for their 2016 vintage release party.

Following Zach – Part Three. Herbs & Rye.

I compare a good mixologist to a good chef; he's someone who knows his ingredients, preparation, best practices, and how the resulting cocktail should taste.

A Tale of Two Temps … or so

I'm quite the advocate (Wine Advocate ... get it?) of cooler temperatures for red wines than what we're used to. We Americans tend to think that "room temperature" equals "warm." Kind of how many Americans tend to think that "Chihuahua" equals "cute."

Part Two – Wine + Me = Marriage Made in Heaven

“Oh!” said a friend of mine with whom I’d shared my decision, “you’re going to become a sommelier!” Well, maybe. It’s on the list. This is where my OCD kicks in. It’s what I call my “While I’m At It” plan.

Tasting Notes: 2005 Hunt Cellars Moonlight Sonata Reserve Chardonnay

There's no way that you'd confuse it with one of its Burgundian cousins; it is quintessentially California, and it wears its California style proudly.

Grow Your Own – the Event!

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.
