Live Blogging #WBC13: 2012 Platinum “Block 3” Riesling

Drinking Cedar Creek Wine Riesling – it’s a new wine with low alcohol (about 8 percent). Didn’t worry about sugar levels when they were making it – they were worried more about flavor. Just bottled in February and released a week ago. $25/bottle. Great value for $25. Bracing acidity with sharp green apple. First time […]

Steve and I had a great time on the pre-excursion to Lake Chelan Wine Valley, organized by the 2013 Wine Bloggers Conference. We have LOTS of photos to share. After a hot coach ride (AC was broken – enough said) from Seattle we were happy to exit the bus and taste the wines offered at […]

Oscars 2013 and Wine Tasting Party

We have a tradition of watching the Oscars every year with a group of friends. This year, we decided to make food from some of the regions highlighted in the Best Pictures nominees. And since French influence was a factor in more than one film, we chose three french wines to pair with the meals. […]

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 […]
