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 was a beautiful fall day, sunny and in the fifties, but as the sun got lower in the sky the air cooled down very quickly. That made it a perfect night for leftover roast beef. This time to go with the roast I paired it up with a bottle of Zinfandel from Lodi, California….

Ahh, on vacation finally. With our work schedules, Mitch on nights and me on days, sit down dinners with wine are limited to twice a week. So a week of vacation together means some quality time catching up on snuggle time, sightseeing and exploring our new home state, and most of all dinner and wine…

Today’s Wine Review

Today started off rainy and chilly with temps in the low fifties and in honor of the chilly fall weather, I set out some beef strips and marinated them with chili powder, minced garlic and crushed red peppers for a touch of heat. I wanted to try something a bit different for the vegetable and…

With the move and our new schedules I am just not getting in a routine. We are in the process of looking for a house, but have not found “The One” yet. We both feel like the apartment is little more than a two bedroom hotel, something very temporary, like we are only guests. Now…

Happy Labor Day Weekend! A three day weekend is just what I needed and as an added bonus Mitch had Saturday and Sunday off too. That meant we could do some exploring around some of the state parks and other sites. After spending the day around the Puget Sound we came home gave the dogs…

I have said it many times before, we have the best friends in the world. S and G have been there for us through thick and thin, both worked tirelessly on helping me get the house ready to put on the market. G digging up and transplanting hundreds of Hostas from his yard to mine…

It has been such a crazy and hectic month. From the moment we found out that Mitch was going to have to relocate to Seattle for his job to now, I have been working nonstop to get the house on the market and sold so I can load up the dogs and my wine and…

Today’s Wine Review

I have been so lax in writing about all of the wine I’ve been drinking. I didn’t stop drinking I just got lazy. My apologies, I will try and do better. I feel live the Man of La Mancha sometimes, doing battle with windmills. Only my windmill is finding the perfect Zinfandel. Sadly my quest…

I love birthdays, especially mine. I would celebrate at least twice a year if I could. Now I’ve decided to turn our birthday celebrations to a birthday weekend fete. My birthday was officially Sunday, but started the party on Friday with a lunch with friends. Saturday Mitch and I went to a very nice restaurant…

Finally, spring is almost here. Warmer weather, gardening and grilling, what more could I ask for? Good wine to go with good food, I guess. Yesterday, was one of those nice days, perfect for a strip steak on the grill and a nice bottle of wine to go along with the meal. I fired up…

Today’s Wine Review

I found it! Well not exactly, but I’m getting closer. In my search for the perfect Zinfandel to replace the Rosenblum, Planchon Vineyards bottle I had a few years ago and was pure heaven, I had a bottle of a close second last night with dinner. For dinner I had the old standby, a bottom…
