It has been a whirlwind for three months but, things are starting to slow and the full force of our favorite season is taking hold. So enjoyable that means Champange. Ahh...I’m only kidding myself, it’s always a good time for champagne.

Tonight the BSR is throwing a lot of peach & tangerine along with lean fruits of; black cherries, strawberries, watermelon & cherries. And...always the razor sharp, grippy, powdery, deep penetrating chalkiness. Perfect, lively, acidity and nicely polished, balanced finish.

Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!!! 🍾🥂🎁⛄️❄️🎄🎅 ⭐️

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time back at home with a glass of one of our very favorite N/V Champagnes. Ahhh!

Out of the deluge of rain with the house warm, Christmas lights and my custom Christmas mix (5 hour mix of old & new) on.

Happy Holiday Season all! Cheers! 🍾🥂 🌲 🎅 🎁 ❄️ ⛄️

It’s Friday night, time for Champagne. It’s been a number of weeks since we had one of our very favorite N/V Rosé Champange’s.

One of the last nights in the D&S Lounge before we close it up for the season. It’s getting into the 50’s at night with fog hovering. But, it’s 75-77 degrees inside our propane fray. Rainy season is coming as well. 😞

Plate & Bottle dinner tomorrow night. 😋

Have great weekend everyone! Cheers! 🍾🥂

Feet up and game on In the lounge. Time to kick it off with some BSR. Ahhhh!

Showing some leaner & more restrained fruits of; strawberries, watermelon near the rind, cherries, orange citrus-blood orange, tangerine, pink grapefruit with a splash of sugar and black cherries. Still showing their signature, soft, powdery, chalkiness with an edge of a razor. Seashell fossil, sea spray-saline, baguette crust, pink roses and florals. The acidy is always crisp and dead on for my palate. The long, rich, well balanced, polished finish persists nicely.

Now BSR is one of our main Friday 375ml weekend kickoff celebration starters but, tonight is a little different and even more special.

I’ll be a little mysterious and private about it. However, let’s just say it has taken ten years over a long road to achieve a goal of mine but, today I did. So, a mighty BSR cheers with our favorite N/V Rosé Champagne (except Krug Rosé) with the love of my life, Sofia.

All my many notes still apply.

Hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy some nice wine and or spirits. Cheers! 🍾 🥂

The start of watching NFL Football 🏈 in the backyard for the dog days of summer. Reason enough to break out the BSR. Still my favorite N/V Rosé Champagne. Really refreshing on a hot day for our neck of the woods, 83 degrees and 90 plus in the sun.

Happy Friday & weekend all! Cheers 🍾🥂!

It’s been a few weeks. Gotta have my baby 375ml. Sure tastes good tonight.

The Giants need to get some runs. Go Giants! ⚾️

After being gone for 23 days, it was a race to get all the work done to open up our backyard or as we call it, the D&S Lounge.

5 full days of; planting, power-washing the house & patio, cleaning furniture, setting up 60 candles & torches and the endless odds and ends. It’s all finally done.

It’s the best room in the house!

It’s opening weekend and looking forward to a long summer and fall weekend nights in our own slice of heaven!

This tastes so good tonight. Showing more tangerine and blood orange tonight. I am in my version of the “Nexus”, Star Trek reference.

Cheers to everyone doing what they enjoy doing with their weekends and opening a good bottles with good friends and or family! 🥂🍾🍷
