This website is dedicated to my love of food, drink, and travel - individually and collectively.
My goal is to inspire by sharing experiences, thoughts, ideas, and suggestions for any and all who care to read them! Mostly healthy and mostly clean, but there are always exceptions (like real butter and s@*t). The BLOG is much more up-to-date than the website, so please click on the blog button above for what's cookin', drinking, and going! Enjoy!!
Eat, Drink, and Go!
Red Wines Price Range Description
Clos du Val $30-40 I'm kind of take or leave it on Pinot Noirs, but
Menage a Trois $10-15 these ones are very good in their respective
price ranges. I need to try more, especially those
Merlots out in Oregon I've heard lots of good things about.
Clos du Val $35-50
Charles Krug $30-40
Clos du Val $40-80
Frog's Leap $40
Stag's Leap $50-75
Charles Krug $30-40
Alamos Malbec $8-12 This red varietal is super light, smooth and innocuous enough to go with practically anything. I consider it my house red because it's so cheap and good that I don't need any special reason to open it. I usually have at least a couple bottles on hand. Every house should have its house wines - let me know yours!
Grgich Hill Zinfandel $40 I had the 2010 recently and it was delish! Very distinct, but not intrusive, soft tannins, but with a little bit of peppery notes and a smooth, silky finish. I'd pair it with a red meat because it is bold, but not obnoxious. I savored every sip of it.
Castillero del Diablo Carmenere $10-12 This is a great winter red because it's rich and luscious and makes your mouth feel soft and supple. It's also nice on the wallet. I would pair it with roasted veggies for play off of each others warm earthiness. Also would go with dessert because it's got cocoa tones.
Nobillo Sauvignon Blanc $10-13 This is my house white. It is so crisp and fresh, solid but not bitter grapefruit notes, hints of vanilla and white pepper and I could sip it all day. It is perfect for any summer meal - I've downed it with BBQ, seafood, or even just a warm summer evening on the porch by itself.
