Today’s Wine Review

Today is the last day of our vacation. It’s back to getting up early and going to work all day. Last week we started off our vacation with a day of wine and whiskey tasting in Woodinville, Washington. I tried the whiskey varieties at the Woodinville Whiskey Company, and didn’t gag, which totally surprised me….

A three-day weekend means firing up the grill and opening up the wine bottles. For one of the meals, I grilled thick cut pork chops that turned out to be super moist and very tasty. For the wine I decided on a Sauvignon Blanc. I opened a bottle of Airfield Estates, Sauvignon Blanc vintage 2014,…

Another night home alone means another bottle of something light. This time it is a Washington State wine from Walla Walla, B. Lovely Late Harvest Riesling, 2014. This is definitely not a wine that Mitch would drink. But if you’re looking for a pretty sweet wine, this is a good choice. The wine has an…

Saturday afternoon after spreading stinky compost on some of my newest plant gifts from my neighbor and a shower, I decided I deserved a glass or two of wine. Today’s wine is Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling, a Columbia Valley, Washington white wine. It says it’s a medium sweet wine on the back label and I…

While in Kansas City on a recent business trip I had an opportunity to go to dinner with one of my sons along with his wife and children. We went to dinner at a local restaurant that if you live anywhere in the two state region, you’ve either eaten there or have at least heard…

To celebrate the 4th of July and a rare day off together, I tried a variation on a meal I recently made from Pinterest. I took the original recipe for a Pinwheel Flank Steak and changed it up a bit. Instead of the Italian seasonings, fresh basil and mozzarella, I went spicy. I used chili…

It’s the holiday weekend and since Mitch has to work I’ve been reduced to drinking alone. And not one to let a weekend go by without wine, I bought a light white wine that I know Mitch wouldn’t like, so I won’t have the guilt of not sharing a good bottle of wine with him….

Summer is here and sweltering heat is encompassing most of the country. Not here though, the summer is mild and pleasant with highs in the low seventies. Perfect weather for dinner on the patio. I wish we had a patio table so we could have dinner on the patio, but for now I only get…

Today’s Wine Review

I love wine. I love exploring the wine store for new wines and I love tasting new wines. A lot are not ones I would buy again but there are a lot more that I like. I’m an equal opportunity wine drinker, red, white, rosé, I love trying them all. When I go wine shopping…

Tonight I called my best friend to catch up since she lives six states away, we can’t get together easily. So a phone call has to suffice most of the time. And of course we were both drinking wine, hers a red and mine was a white. I opened a bottle of Radius Riesling, a…

Today’s Wine Review

The heat is on and it’s only the first of June. It’s the Pacific Northwest for crying out loud, everyone told me it rains all the time, it’s cold and cloudy, everyone is depressed because of the rain. Well right now I’m depressed because of the heat and no rain. We haven’t had any good…

Today’s Wine Review

Vacation is so nice. That means we are both off and get to have dinner together every night which includes wine. Woo hoo. The latest bottle I opened was a white wine our friends had brought over and we didn’t get it opened that night. Since dinner was Jamaican Jerk Chicken, I thought that a…
