For many years, Nevada wines were known for their relentless mediocrity - they seemed to be White Zinfandel wannabes - and there wasn't much that the serious wine person could glean from them other than a collective meh.
I'm especially happy that I had the presence of mind to stop at Refugio State Beach and take some footage and photos just days before the horrific and inexcusable oil spill.
Smartphones may very well be the new Nikons. Or if you have an iPhone 6s Plus like I do, even Hasselblads! (inside photographer joke).
So I became an ABC (Anything But Chard) gal. It was quite a few years before I found the Chard character my palate desired and, as I discovered, you had a spend a little money to get it. Nowadays - whether it's because you really don't have to spend a fortune to enjoy a good Chard or because my palate has matured - I enjoy it on a fairly regular basis. Yup. Me. Liking white wines. Who'da thunk?
