Today’s Wine Review

Grilling season is here and I’m grilling with a vengeance. It’s easy and quick, no fuss no muss. We grill almost every night. From chicken breasts to steak, I even cook a lot of vegetables on the grill. I tried pizza a couple of times, very tasty. And the best part about grilling is that…

Even though there are technically twenty-one days until the first day of summer, it feels like spring has abandoned us for the muggy days of summer. I just got back from walking the dogs and am soaked through. So I thought today would be a perfect day to drink some chilled soft white wine and…

Anybody that knows me knows how much I love wine. I love to drink wine and I love to talk about wine. Occasionally some of my friends and even a few co-workers give me a bottle of wine. Sometimes the wine is not an especially good wine, even though the thought meant a lot to…

Where did spring go? We had one of the coldest, ickiest winters on record which also had the audacity to hang on and on and on, only to have spring disappear into summer without a fight. I am not ready for summer heat and humidity just yet. I want to sit outside and enjoy a…

Spring is well under way with sunny skies and warmer temperatures. Sitting around soaking up some sun and gentle breezes also includes sipping lighter wines. Red wine is always in for some, but spring and summer offer lighter fare, more salads, grilled chicken and chilled beverages. There are so many varietals of white wine, so…

We have all tasted that one super awesome wine at one time or another and can’t wait to buy it again. I don’t know about you, but for me it was a 2006 Zinfandel by Rosenblum Cellars called Planchon Vineyard in Contra Costa County, California. It was everything that a Zinfandel should taste like to…

One of our go to wines is Cabernet Sauvignon. Even though I’m always on the lookout for different interesting wines, I always keep a few bottles of the big red wine on hand. Over the years I’ve tasted some really great Cabernets and some not so great ones. The differences between the wines we’ve tasted…

In an effort to eat healthier, I bought a package of ground chicken at the store. I compared it against the hamburger I usually buy that is 93% lean and found the chicken to be 99% lean, so I thought that I would give it a shot. Of course as I turned around to put…

I have been such a drub. It’s not that I haven’t had any wine to drink, au contraire, I’ve been drinking wine daily and have been writing it down, I just haven’t had the computer time to get my scribbles into legible thoughts and text. For some really strange reason my employer expects me to…

I last wrote about tasting a red blend, Besieged, so continuing on the same theme I tried another bottle. This time we opened a bottle of Sterling Vintner’s Collection, Meritage 2011. It is a red blend of Merlot 44%, Cabernet Sauvignon 41%, Malbec 7%, Petit Verdot 5% and Cabernet Franc 3%. The wine is a…

On Sundays if we have no other plans, I pick Mitch up from work, come home and have a late lunch early dinner. I try to fix something nice more dinner like than lunch and of course wine to go with it all. I know it’s a bit early but its Sunday and we have…
