Que Syrah – Taft Street 2006

Since I wasn’t crazy about either of the Syrah wines I had for Wine Blogging Wednesday #55, I decided to open a third. I was hopeful to end the night on a positive note, so I opened up a Dry Creek Valley wine, since I would soon be there. The Taft Street Syrah 2006,  about $20…

Wine Blogging Wednesday 55 – Syrah Showdown

Let me start off today’s Wine Blogging Wednesday post by saying no winemaker sets out to make a bad wine.  These men and women put their hearts and souls into each glass of their wine that gets poured. They create something they truly love and believe in, and put it out for the entire world…

Zin-Take 1-Pedroncelli and Ridge Lytton Springs 2005

Every now and then, I get the wild idea that I want to drink nothing except one varietal of wine. That’s semi crazy given the vast world of wines out there. However, I gave in this time when the call of Zinfandel was so loud, it nearly gave me a headache. Perhaps it was the…

Grocery Store Zins

If you tuned in live to the TTL 05 event, you know that after the Hahn Estates wine tasting, I went on to my own Grocery Store Zinfandel tasting. My idea was to find 4 zinfandels in the grocery store, all under $20, and taste them live with you. A lot of people look for…

TTL 05 – Hahn Estate Wines

You may remember my discussing the Bloggers Take Over Twitter Taste Live event and the fact that we were going to enjoy some Hahn Estates wines and then some “Grocery Store Zinfandels” back in November.  I broke the event up into two sections and will add a wine blog post specifically for the Zins later on this week. The idea behind…

Cheap Chilean Reds WBW52

Wine Blogging Wednesday 52 is upon us, and I couldn’t be more excited. This installment of WBW is hosted by Tim from Cheap Wine Ratings. Tim asked us to taste, and write about, inexpensive Chilean red wines.  I happen to love cheap wine, when it’s good, and cheap Chilean red wine often is too good to pass…

TTL 05

One of the most interesting uses of twitter I’ve been a part of is the Twitter Taste Live wine events. The last TTL event was the first I participated in. It was a Steele Wine tasting, where several of us ordered 6 different Steele Wines varietals from Bin Ends Wine, and tasted them “together”, using twitter to communicate our…

Steele Wines for TTL04

If you missed the event, Thursday October 23rd was the 4th official Twitter Taste Live wine tasting event. It was organized by Craig from Bin Ends Wine, who finds a way to bring wine and twitter together each month. Twitter users (Twitterers?) will obtain the wines, and taste them together. We then tweet our tasting…

Bosco Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

Wine of the evening – Bosco ’02 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo on TwitPic A Good Time With Wine Bosco Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Tonight, we went to Italy for dinner. While we didn’t actually FLY there, we did have a fantastic lazagne, some garlic bread, and of course, a nice Italian red wine to compliment the meal. I did…

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by. I’ve decided to take all of the wine related content from my other blog, and post it in a place it belongs. I’ll start with this post, which is new, and slowly migrate the older ones here as well. Today I’m showcasing a video review of Jip Jip…
