2008 Zaca Mesa Syrah – Santa Ynez Valley

It’s a beautiful Spring evening and we’ve decided to open a Syrah from Zaca Mesa, which is located in the Santa Ynez Valley in California. This valley holds a lot of great memories for us. This valley was our first introduction to wine country. It’s only an hour and a half from Los Angeles so […]

2010 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas

Tablas Creek is one of our favorite Paso Robles wineries. There is a West and East side of Paso Robles. Tablas Creek is on the West side with its winding roads that are perfect for long bike rides. The East side is nice but much flatter and less wooded. Steve found a more economical bottle […]

2007 Silverado Zinfandel & Ombra Ristorante in Studio City, CA

Steve and I visited Silverado Vineyards during our trip to Napa when our film Take Me Home was in the festival. The tasting room had amazing views of the Valley and the server was very nice and accommodating. When we got home, we realized we had visited Silverado on our first trip to Napa with […]

2008 Surfrider Cabernet Sauvignon from Rosenthal in Malibu, CA

After a hike in Malibu, Steve and I stumbled upon the Rosenthal tasting room and being the winos that we are, we decided to stop in post-hike. Looking around at the casual tasting room, we didn’t think they’d mind as they seemed super cool and welcoming. Wine after a hike is always welcome (shhh! don’t […]

2008 Filus Reserve Malbec at 55 Degree Wine

55 Degree Wine is a great little wine shop in Glendale that offers wine tastings in its cavern-like basement. The tasting room is part of their wine cellar. It has a few tables and a bar area where they create cheese plates to go with the wine tasting flights. They also offer pizzas from the next […]

Value Wine: 2008 Trader Joe’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Recently, Jane and I found ourselves walking through the aisles of a local Trader Joe’s Market on our way to a dinner party. It started us thinking that perhaps we should explore some more affordable bottles for everyday wine consumption. We had a vague memory of a TJ’s bottle we bought years ago that was […]

2006 Elu from St. Supery Vineyards and Winery & Chablis Food + Wine

We went to dinner on Friday night and decided to bring a bottle of wine to review. Since it was Christmas weekend, we decided to try a generous gift from one of Steve’s coworkers. She gave us the 2006 Elu from St. Supery Vineyards and Winery in Napa Valley. She knows we love wine and […]

2009 Domaine Carneros Avant-Garde Pinot Noir

Arriving at Domaine Carneros in the Carneros AVA of Napa Valley, California, you feel as if you are touring the French Palace of Versailles. After climbing an innumerable set of stairs, you arrive at a bistro-style tasting room with pinkish-red walls and a beautiful fireplace. Of course, we were immediately drawn to the fireplace. What […]

2006 Rubicon Captain’s Reserve Cab Sauv

As our name suggests, we are two winos and how best to express that than by drinking a bottle of wine and telling you about it? We tend to be romantics – at least Steve accuses me of it – so you should expect our impressions to evoke a romantic love with the wine we […]
