Today’s Wine Review

We had good friends over for dinner last night. We had talked about all the recipes I save on Facebook and Pinterest, making all of my Facebook “friends” complain about putting them in a diabetic coma all of the time, so we decided that we would get together at least once a month and some…

Today’s Wine Review

A rare weekend off for Mitch means I cook something nicer and we open a bottle of wine. For me the weekends are special, for one I am off and I try to cram as much in as I can in two days and if Mitch is off, it usually means I get to plan…

Today’s Wine Review

Spring is in full swing in the Northwest. I can’t believe all of the beautiful blooming bushes and plants here. There are so many new and different plants here that I’ve never seen before. There’s one that has white blooms that are multiple tiny flowers growing in the shape of spikes and smell like cotton…

Today’s Wine Review

I can’t believe it, I move to the Pacific Northwest where it is widely believed that it rains all the time and the temperatures stay in the mid-sixties and last summer we had a drought that lasted for months and temperatures in the eighties with a few nineties thrown in for good measure. Now spring…

Today’s Wine Review

I have been very lax in writing about my wine drinking, I have a few excuses, all bad, but I will endeavor to be more timely in tasting and writing about wines. So much has happened recently, we bought a house and moved, finally out of the apartment. Now I have the task of unpacking…

Today’s Wine Review

Last night we had an opportunity to drink wine together, something we don’t get to do every night anymore because of Mitch’s schedule.  Oh don’t worry it hasn’t slowed down my wine drinking, I still drink every day.  We just don’t get to drink together as much as before.    For dinner it was a…

Today’s Wine Review

I can’t believe my good fortune, this is the first January I have ever spent not wearing leather down mittens, fifteen layers of clothing and not thawing out until May. The temperatures here are in the low forties in the mornings and the highs for the day in the high forties to low fifties. Awesome!…

Today’s Wine Review

In keeping with my New Year’s resolution (the only one I can keep) I opened another bottle of wine. I am so proud of myself, I finally found the perfect resolution, and one that I can make year after year and succeed. Drink more wine. So simple, I don’t know why I didn’t think of…

Today’s Wine Review

It’s January 4, 2016 and by now most everyone I know has already given up on their New Year’s Resolutions, me included. I lasted almost twenty four hours. I’ve decided to take solace in my failure by drinking more wine. It’s a good goal and one that I can definitely succeed at. For my first…

Today’s Wine Review

Today was leftover day, leftover prime rib, baked potatoes and pumpkin pie for dessert. Today though for the wine I chose a Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon, one of the bottles I received from my coworkers. I was interested to compare the Pinot and Prime Rib to the Cab and Prime Rib combination we…

Today’s Wine Review

The holidays are a time of friends and family, shopping and presents, food and beverages, adult beverages to be more precise. To be even more precise, wine, and if you are lucky, many bottles of wine. I have been lucky, I have six new bottles of wine to taste, four that came in a wine…

Today’s Wine Review

December is here and the holiday rush has me running around on the hunt for the perfect Christmas presents for my family and friends. With almost all of our friends and all of our family in the Midwest, I will be making the UPS man very tired. All this rushing around and stressing over the…
