The weather here in DC turned (for a moment anyway) to chilly and the reds in the cel ...

      Chianti Days are Upon Us

      Wine Chicks Guide - - 3 readers - Ok, so Chianti Days isn’t really a thing but I always seem to enjoy Chianti when the temps are cooler. Maybe it’s because it lends itself so beautifully to the hearty dishes of fall and winter, maybe it’s because my wine cellar temps really start to drop and resemble European wine temps more, meaning I can grab a bottle of red without pre-chilling or maybe it’s because they t ...

      Flavors of Fall...Three Craft Brews You'll Love

      Sipped In California - - 2 readers - It's time to move from Summer's citrusy beers for a spicy Fall seasonal brew! When you think Fall seasonals you may immediately think pumpkin...which is a popular trend, but there are many other flavors that lend themselves to the season. You may notice German style beers for Fall-Vienna, Malts, and Lagers are a few that come to mind.

Oh, my, the nose. This Syrah has that meaty note I love in Syrahs. 2.) We had this with beef stew. Perfect for a cold evening. 3.) I could also see this in the summer…

      … appreciated the Cabernet, which I would say falls into the budget sub-$20 range, not being a fruit-bomb and showing enough complexity to match up to a stew that featured beef, carrots, potato, onion, green beans, and tomato.
