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 […]

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 […]

Lompoc Wine Ghetto in Lompoc, CA

Some friends told us about the wine ghetto in Lompoc, CA so we decided to stop by on our way to an overnight in Santa Maria, CA wine country. It’s unusual in that it’s not your traditional winery, with rolling hills and beautiful rows of grape vines. Instead it’s a row of low slung warehouses […]

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 […]
