Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles is Back

Out of pure selfishness I was hesitant to put this out as a wine alert, but when I received an email from one of our close followers, Robin, I knew it had to be done.

It’s true.  The 2010 edition of the Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles Rhone Style Blend out of Paso Robles is […]

Yummy Trader Joes Find!

Looking for a nice Tuesday night wine? Then you should check out Cocobon 2010 California Red Wine, which is exclusively at Trader Joe’s. It is around $7 and is very satisfying. In fact, I think it is even better the next day after it has gotten some air into it… if it lasts that long that […]

Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles Is Back At Trader Joe's

For those of you who fell in love with the 2008 Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles Rhone style red wine that flew off the shelves at Trader Joe’s early last year, I have fantastic news for you.  I just received word from one of our Bryersantís followers, Robin, that the 2009 vintage of the Rabbit […]

Trader Joe’s 2008 Coastal Merlot

I just returned home today from a week long work trip away from the family.  It is great to be back.

Livermore Trader Joe’s is selling an excellent white this week. It’s the Pancake Cellars 2009 Big Day White. Imagine this: BBQ turkey burger, grilled onions, chili and shredded cheese. What do I do for wine? I pulled out the pre-chilled Pancake. It’s a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Muscat Canelli and Pinot Blanc. It’s […]

I was just about done BBQing a great tri-tip that Julia picked up this afternoon and a glass was handed to me from behind with a voice that said, “try it!”  I turned around and Julia was standing there only to say, “I’m not going to tell you what it is and if it’s good […]

Rosenblum Cellars California Alyse Port

As I sit here watching my wife Julia and Bryersantis family member Jenny attempt to compose a puzzle out of sheer frustration from the night events….I sip my Rosenblum Cellars California Alyse Port. This has been good for me as we sit and wait for the tow truck driver to bring 300C back to life […]

Monogamy 2008 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

I know, wow, the name made ya look twice huh?  Don’t see that everyday!

What the bottle says, “You know you’ve experimented.  It’s a way to discover what you like….and what you don’t.  What makes you happy.  What satisfies your soul.  It’s how you know when you’ve found the one.  The one that makes you […]

Wild Hare Winery California Petite Sirah

California Petite Sirah

I don’t know a lot about Petite Sirah so I found this little blurb on the internet.  “Petite Sirah is one of a group of grapes that took to a new home – in this case California – after moving from the relative obscurity enjoyed at its birthplace – France in […]
