  • You are quite right; I neither lost nor gained as the virtual reality was not actualized.  But had I actualized, well...I think the experience with paper financial holdings can translate into fun - if you take - as with anything in life - the proper attitude.  For example, the 350 dollar cost of the event you described in some detail would be we...

  • I'd have to say that, in the main, it is usually just my wife and I plus a friend or two, so we steal down to the modest cellar (ever depeleting) and just go by feeling - just as some of you do yourselves.  I usually will go for a mid-range Bordeaux, Burgundy, or Rhone (any colour - depending a little on food chosen or the time of year, as we've...

  • These are not exactly bought...I give a bottle to each member of our wine club each year.  I expect nothing in return, it's a gift to say thank you for their participation.  This year they surprised me in a big way - last night at our annual Christmas party where we exchange gifts (er - bottles).Never had, nor heard of the 2016 19 Crimes Banishe...

  • Somehow looks like a combo between Southern Rhone and Bordeaux and Northern Italian. Also, then, should ask where's the petit verdot and the cab franc, or the mourvedre and syrah?  Perhaps they could acknowledge their more recent California del Norte wine culture heritage and throw in some Zin as well. One wonders why they avoided Spanish (other... Read More

  • I panicked!No, we just felt like some red. I misjudged the style a bit. Okay, so we had something pretty interesting last night.  I think there's a story behind it.  It was a Marsanne/Roussane/Viognier blend from Alder Springs.  Not just the very large vineyard owned by the guy who invented the California Cooler. He grows all kinds of grapes up ... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Whatcha drinking tonight?


  • OT, I'm not saying you should come around.  Where you live, there are way more opportunities to buy excellent under-the-radar wines at fair prices.  While California may lack in great $15 bottles (and not always), I think the good Syrahs you have introduced many of us to make purchasing their N. Rhone competitors mostly superfluous.  When you ge... Read More

  • MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More

  • BL - Our Viking River Cruise down the Rhone last year was a blast, and we tried many wines of Southern France along the way.  I think my favorite was the Burgundy Pinot Noir wines, as they are close to the Oregon Pinot Noir wines we also enjoy. We never visited El Toreo on Fair Oaks Ave in Pasadena, but we were both living in Southern California...
