• Clos du Bois Chardonnay North Coast 2012

      Clos du Bois is a Californian wine manufacturer who has the stated aim of making wines that taste like they are French. It makes sense. Why fly wines half way around the world when you can make one that tastes just as good locally? Here’s the thing. I live in Europe, so why would I want to buy an American wine that tastes like a French one? Surely the transportation costs and ...

    • Easy Drinking Bubbly for Parties

      Easy drinking style SPARKLING – for PARTIES New arrival Prosecco, Fiol is eye catching – black fence-posts on a white background, and apparently the name is an ancient word for ‘being part of a group of friends’. Nice. But Fiol is more than cool. Expect super refreshment with a delicate tease of flavor – the hallmark of good Prosecco. The perfect start to your evening, or event.

  • Buena Vista Zinfandel Vinicultural Society 2012

    … I love a good back story, it’s nice if it has a ring of truth to it, but I’ll be honest, I’m not that fussy. I’ve cycled across Spain to the site where a stone boat from the middle east was said to have landed with St James aboard, it didn’t put me off that the site was miles from the coast. I’ve cycled from the Rhone all the way along…

  • Scotto Old Vine Zinfandel 2009

    … drive through twisting country roads as well as a short blast down the motorway. I opted for this Scotto Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi in California. I like Zinfandel and I’m not ashamed to admit it. This one is made by the Scotto family, and their marketing department is keen for you to know that their ancestors made wine in Italy before heading…

    … dinner rolls. Dr. Konstantine Frank is a legend in the NY State wine demi-mond. Back in `10 (while the grapes in this Gewurztraminer were still on the vine), I reviewed their Riesling (paired with a PB&J). Traditional northern European wine varietals, grown on old vines in the Finger Lakes of New York. Dr Frank' legacy is robust, available and delicious. Menu: Crock Pot Chicken Soup (my own recipe) Classic Dinner Rolls Apple Pie I'll leave you with a slideshow of early fall in Central Park:…

  • On Location: Diamond Knot Brewing

    … peppers. It didn’t stay together very long, but was delicious. The inventive burgers are definitely worth another visit to try the Nacho Burger! Having been down to Seattle more times than I can remember, it was great to get off the highway and explore a less traveled path. The road out to Mukilteo is scenic, relaxed and completely different from the monotony of the I-5. Next time you’re heading down to Seattle, it’s certainly worth the stop! …

  • Nicest Summer White

    … ANOTHER CANDIDATE FOR NICEST SUMMER WHITE IN THE WORLD (Yes… still celebrating ‘summer’) Symphony is a Calif clone of Muscat so expect a wine that’s “seductively aromatic” to quote the back label. Another good descriptor on the back label is “delightful”, especially when sipped alfresco on a sunny day. As with most Muscat wines, the feeling…

  • Yawny Monday – Steller Sea Lion

    … Hey there y’all! :-) Hope everyone is doing fine, easing into Fall. I am still under the gun at work, but hopeful that things will go back to quasi-normal sooner rather than later. Bear with me a little longer, if you will… To start off your week with a… big yawn, here is an image of a Steller sea lion (Eumetopias jubatus) that I took while…

  • 2012 Franciscan Chardonnay

    … 2012 Franciscan Chardonnay Pale in color with a lovely varietal nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays lovely chard fruit along with some beautiful vanilla on the medium length finish. This is an elegant, bold complex rich chard. I really liked it. Be careful this is one of those chards that is very susceptible to temperature. Serve it too…
