Today’s Tasting Note: Pinot Noir and Zinfandel

I didn't realize when I purchased the 2011 Plungerhead Zin a few weeks ago that it was made by The Other Guys, whose mission, it seems, is to make good wines at everyman prices.

Dazzled by Pink Pinot Gris…What?

Ordinarily, Pinot Gris is made into a white wine. A Pinot Gris Rosé is a different beast altogether.

The Last Word on Pho in Vegas – From the Pho Queen

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.

Bin 702 – Officially the Cutest Wine Bar in Vegas

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.

Pinot School – Siduri in the House!

2011 Calera Chardonnay – Mt. Harlan Vineyard

While the visit to Caesar's was pretty horrific - in fact, I haven't returned - the one jewel was the glass of Calera Pinot Noir which was presented to me to make up for all of the Wine Fubars they had committed.

…To the Ridiculous – $2.98 Pinot Noir Review

Pho and Pinot Noir – My Opinion. As Always.

This is the time of year when the words “hot soup” can cause a smiling physical reaction. Even in Las Vegas it’s very cold (25°F when I left for work this morning), and the vision of curling up with a blanket and a bowl of hot soup is oh so comforting.

Pinot Noir International!

It had a distinctly candy-ish artificial taste on the palate and the finish was nonexistent. Thank goodness. I certainly didn't want to have that lingering in my mouth!
