Joseph Carr


Caught a late dinner a couple nights ago and didn’t realize until after he had already left that i was sitting next to Winemaker Joseph Carr.  Would have enjoyed chatting with him.  🙂   Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

Rustenberg 2007 Meritage


Happy Wine Wednesday to all and the wine topic of the day is South African wine.  South African wine to me can be really inconsistent with it’s quality, but when you find a good one, they are absolutely mystical, contemplative and in their own rite.  So, last night my friend and I opened a bottle of 2007  Rustenberg by John X Merriman from Stellenbosch; and I was very pleased with what I fell into.  This balanced Meritage blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec had awesome deep flavors of blackberry, rustic earth, green pepper, graphite, with a tad of tobacco and vanilla extract. With smooth tannin and great feel throughout, this wine was an absolute joy to drink!  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2008


This one of those wines that if you can score it at $10 or $11 it is decent, but if it is priced between $17 and $20 not so worth it. This Cab has a beautiful dark hue and offers flavors of young easy sipping red fruit. Not much depth here, but if you decant this wine for about 45 minutes or so it would make for a good everyday sipping/dinner wine .  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

90 + Cellars Lot 28 Pinot Noir


Just stumbled across these guys this Weekend and their claim to fame is that they outsource ultra premium wines from Vineyards that only produce 90+ point wines and then they offer them to the consumer at discount price such as Cameron Hughes does with his Lot Series.  My Mom and I chose to give The Lot 28 a try which is a Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir that was on sale for $14.99 and WOW!

This wine from the first smell and taste has MASSIVE BARGAIN written all over it with a superbly refined bouquet of ripe red cherries, violets, perfume, sweet oak with a touch of juicy fruit.  Impeccable mouthfeel and nice pepperiness through the mid palate and finish; this wine at $14.99 is so underpriced it is ridiculous!!!   Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

Herederos Del Marques De Riscal Rioja Reserva 2005


Had this Rioja Reserva on Friday night and was pleasantly surprised being that i am typically not a huge Tempranillo fan.  This medium body Spanish Red had a refined bouquet of musk, lavender, clay, wheat and sweet oak with a mild undertone of vanilla, black licorice.    With a gracious amount of balanced red and dark fruit and a mild toasty finish, this wine would be perfect with a massive grilled sirloin and portobello mushroom not overally seasoned.  Keep Believin and Keep Drinkin.

Midnight in Paris


Just saw the new Woody Allen movie “Midnight in Paris” and even though i am not an Owen Wilson fan, this movie was refreshing, witty and made me forget about my troubles for a while.   A Wonderful film with Classic witty dialoge, captivating scenery and countless intriguing characters to boot, i recommend this movie to all!   🙂 

French Open Men’s Final- Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal


What an absolutely awesome win for Roger Federer over Novak Djokovic in the Semifinals and really makes a statement that Mr. Federer is far from through.  

So once again we have a Federer Vs Nadal Grand Slam Final.  🙂    I think the way Federer is playing so loose and with absolutely no pressure on him this will be his best chance for him to beat Nadal at The French Open.   Can’t call this one, but have to think that Nadal will still hoist the trophy when it is all said and done.   If you dig the vibe, please download my new album at ITunes.

French Open Women’s Final


Been an awesome French Open thus far and can’t wait for the Women’s Final with defending champion Francesca Schiavone taking on Australian Open Finalist Li Na.   Got to take Italy’s Finest Francesca Schiavone to repeat as champion in straight sets.  She has way too much variety and with her clay court excellence, i think she will overwhelm Li Na.  Cheers and please subscribe and download my new album “Greatest and Otherwise” if you dig the vibe!

 

 

 

French Open Women’s Semifinal
