I bought the Rosé and Mary bought the Castle Rock. The rosé did a bit better but both were fine! Neither were expensive…The Domaine Loubejac at $15 was super nice. The $12 Castle Rock lacked identity but was a perfectly nice vin de table. (hard to find Pinot Noire identity for $12!) I definitely […]
What does cocktail Monday have to do with Cafe Pasqual’s shrimp cocktail. Well in my mind, everything. I have made this recipe twice and frankly it’s fabulous. How kind was Le Bon Dieu to first bless me the most fabulous wife and second have her mother live in Santa Fe. I have been to Cafe […]
This week Dr. Mary and I have lots of fun with everything from Hitchcock to Semillon! All on one four minute show! Truthfully it’s more fun than we should be allowed to have. Enjoy the show!
Mary and I don’t taste nearly enough new world wine. We are trying to fix it with a concerted effort to drink more American wine! The Mer Soliel had a hideous looking bottle but was a super nice Chardonnay for about $17. The Leese Fitch Cabernet at $10 is a steal! Here’s our show. […]
Recently Kati and I took a trip to Sonoma and did some tasting. Kati was nervous that if she spat or poured out the wine the wine makers would be insulted. Nothing could be further from the truth. Mary and I discuss what is a very important part.
To Celebrate our first Anniversary Kati and I flew to Chicago, stayed at The Drake Hotel for a night and then took the train to San Francisco! It took two days and was fabulous. We then found ourselves with two days to spend in wine country. We arbitrarily chose Sonoma and off we went to […]
I purchased both of these for about $13…more or less…The white was delicate and the red was a beast! Austria continues to have wines with personality and value at the low end. Here’s our show…Enjoy!
I adored and still adore Mark Bittman’s Minimalist column. Even though it has ended I still get lots of ideas from those posted on line. I think a minimalist approach to cocktails is a great idea. 4 ingredients MAX! I am so tired of cocktails that have seventeen things in them…I’m also tired of having […]
Just What is Zibibbu and what does it want of us! It’s a grape that is known as Muscat of Alexandria and a has million other names! Mary found a couple of nice wines, one which is unusual and the other more mainstream….both were lovely and around $15 – $17. Our first wine was called […]
Yumsters! Both of them around $15! A picture is worth a thousand words…Check out the show…
