Highflyer Centerline Red 2008

There’s a small tasting room in Yountville, Napa where Highflyer Centerline Red is poured. The first time we came to this tasting room, Brandon, Sarah, Steve and I were enjoying a stroll down the cute streets of Yountville when lo and behold, we came upon the inviting tasting room of Somerston Wine Co. They had […]

Marietta Angeli Cuvee 2007

We were introduced to the Marietta Angeli Cuvee quite by accident. A coworker offered it as a subtle bribe to Jane to make up for a chocolate misshap at the Paris airport. He claimed that both him and his wife really enjoy it as their go-to bottle. We decided to open it up tonight.   […]

Truett-Hurst Petite Sirah 2010

Truett-Hurst Winery is located in our favorite wine region: Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma. The winery was recommended to us by another winery so we decided to drop in. We are super happy we did. This place is so pretty. The tasting room is modern with couches to lounge on. Outside there’s a nice outdoor […]

Yoakim Bridge 2008 Petite Syrah

Jane and I just returned from a trip to Sonoma with two of our dearest friends, Brandon and Sarah Trenz. We have started a tradition of meeting in wine country in September and Yoakim Bridge Winery is one of many finds from our adventures in Sonoma. Each time we visit Sonoma, we make sure to […]

Costco’s Kirkland Offers Up Two Affordable and Delicious French Wines

Two of Costco’s Kirkland wines getting high ratings? Wine Spectator gave two of its French wines scores of 89 and 91, respectively. This was something we had to investigate seeing that we’re always on the look out for good, affordable wines. So today we went to Costco to return an item and decided to go […]

The Rare 100% Graciano Ijalba from Rioja 2009

We recently had an awesome family reunion in Zion in Utah. Our lives were put at risk left and right by the great outdoors and we loved every minute. And every evening, we would pull a new wine from the case we brought from California or the case Jane’s sister and husband brought from Washington. […]

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais, Moulin-A-Vent, Domaine des Rosiers 2009

So its summer, and man is it hot outside. Since it’s tough to drink a big Syrah or Cabernet in the midst of a hot summer day, I decided to try a new bottle of  Beaujolais – the 2009 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais, Moulin-A-Vent, Domaine des Rosiers to be exact. Since it’s made from the light-bodied Gamay […]

2008 Aglianico, Kenneth Volk Vineyards, Pomar Junction Vineyard, Paso Robles, CA

Gotta love a vineyard with two tastings rooms in two different cities! Our first introduction to Kenneth Volk Vineyards was at a tasting room shared with Lone Madrone in Paso Robles, CA.We then stumbled upon its cousin in Santa Maria, CA. When we saw the Santa Maria tasting room, we thought we were seeing double […]

The Mercantile Wine Bar, Hollywood, CA

It’s Sunday and Steve and I are ready to relax in the 90 degree LA weather. We looked around and decided to try The Mercantile Wine Bar in Hollywood, CA. And boy were we glad we did. First they have a huge, free parking lot in the heart of Hollywood. That’s nearly impossible to find. […]

2010 Proprietary Red, KitFox Vineyards

We received this red wine as a gift. It’s another daily bottle blend that we feel is tasty and enjoyable. We wouldn’t pull it out on a special occasion but for every day it’s lovely. There is interesting history to the vineyard’s name. The vineyard shares a home with the endangered Kit Fox hence the […]
