Today’s Food and Wine Review

Since most of my wine tasting reviews center around food pairings too, I’ve decided to expand my reviews to include more food reviews. Tonight, I made a special meal, our anniversary dinner. For some, this means dinner out at a nice restaurant, for me making something special and a really nice bottle of wine is…

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….

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…

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…

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…

Once again we’re having a brief respite from the cold during February weather with a few days in fifties and sixties. I took advantage of the beautiful weather and grilled two KC strip steaks outside. To go with the salad and steaks I opened a bottle of Zinfandel 2013, from St. Helena, California called Predator….

Today’s Wine Review

It feels like the earth has shifted on its’ axis and we are now part of the North Pole. It is so cold that all I want to do is stay under the covers until March. I envy those that hibernate all winter, go to sleep all fat and sassy, then wake up in the…

Today’s Wine Review In two weeks it will be Thanksgiving and the official kick off of the holiday season. I know that the stores have been running ads and specials since before Halloween, but to me Thanksgiving is the starting point. Running around in search of the perfect gift for family, friends and co-workers, promises…

Today’s Wine Review

My favorite wine is a big jammy Zinfandel. One that is dark purple and full of blackberry and cherry flavors, not too dry and not sweet. I had the perfect bottle once, a Rosenblum, Planchon Vineyard, 2006. It was everything I wanted in a glass of Zinfandel. I went back to the store where I…

Today’s Wine Review

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…
