I’m watching MMA and drinking wine. That’s issue #1. Despite this seeming contradiction, it’s actually a strong metaphor for what I’m going through. I’m fighting this wine. I want so much to like it, but I’m on the cusp of going either way. It’s a 5 round fight, so I’m up for making sure this doesn’t go to the judges scorecard. — 5 days ago

SNM (Sunday Night Magnum!) with @Steve Haro @Andrew Neyer @David Moffat @Matt Davis.
Another special wine in tonight’s magnum lineup. This was my contribution. An anniversary gift from my betrothed a few years back. The 2004 was the #1 rated wine on WS Top 100 in 2013. The 1999 lived up to expectations. Tons of blackberry, mushroom, leather, and awesomeness. More austere than I expected. This can easily go another 5 years without breaking a sweat. Maybe 10. This is one of the last truly special bottles I have, but so happy I cracked it open with good friends who appreciated it. That’s what wine is meant for. — 6 days ago
Simply phenomenal. A Rye to seek out. Painfully smooth and glides down like butter. A 3 blend rye aged in Madeira/Sauternes/Port casks...the majority in Madeira. As for the painting it is a work from Todd Marinovich himself who is the protagonist here 🖕🏽 and a guy who many of my friends went to school with at SC. He’s been a tool a good part of his life but who knows what signposts dictate a man’s life path. His Dad’s approach to parenting is a cautionary tale for sure. I hope he’s turned it around. His painting cracked me up last night, I know that. — 2 months ago
Yes, the convicts are back!
This is a whole-grain effort which displays a little bit of everything. It’s a cab, but has a perfume of mulberry and tar. Palette is consistent with notes of olives. Superb structure on the mid-palette, showing moderate extraction. We think this is another $20 gem.
I left the screwcap in shot for @Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher - #1 DL wine snob! 🙂 — 14 days ago
