North West on Snooth

  • My Thursday commute.  The first two are Ross Rd heading to the curve outside Scherrer's driveway then the next two are just North before Traditional Medicinals. I had to take this route because a tree was blocking 116. Next up was Mark West Springs and Porter Creek Rds on the way to Calistoga. An adventure to be sure. Once in Calistoga going to ...

  • Hey OT - had an 18 oz steak last night with some salad and a Cab. Tonight it's pulled pork and yeah, I know that's the other white meat but it's got plenty of BBQ sauce so for me it counts as a red. And it's clashing with a not-so-good WA Cab blend at the moment.dvogler - did you do videos??? When did you do that? I never even saw you do them.As... Read More

  • "Just like that, he's gone" So are all the guests and most of the wine. Over the top is a good descriptor. Just way too much wine to be able to fully appreciate each but I'm not complaining. What started out as a Halcón horizontal vertical turned into a 52 bottle private wine and food festival at Club Forestville. Guests arrived from far and wid... Read More

  • No, the fog there is somewhat different.  All the fog forms as a result of the temp differences between the water and the air, but the movement of the fog on the Central Coast is more uniform (mostly) because they don't get the huge effect from the Central Valley.  The Central Coast is unusual because they have a number of small east -west runni...

So, a week after moving to my new residency location, we pawned off the two year old on the grandparents and headed for the hills of California.We arrived i... Read More

  • We tried six wines at a free Whole Foods wine tasting event last night, and three were quite tasty so we bought one of each.  The tasting started with an El Perro Verde Rueda, which has Verdejo grapes from the Rueda plateau in north-central Spain.  I sensed grapefruit and other citrus flavors with this one and it's one of the three we selected. ...

  • The nice thing about Sauvignon Blanc is that it is much less expensive than Chardonnay.Ah Emark! Some are, some aren't. But even if they all were, you still have an insurmountable problem.You have Sauvignon Blanc!You gotta do poor Minky some good or he won't come back. Suggest something else! Anything, else!I feel like we've been down this road ... Read More

  • In the Bay Area and in the greater LA area, the choices are pretty huge, but that doesn't mean everything is easily available--more on that below. BevMo is headquartered here, and its ancestry can be traced back to the beginnings of a wine program at CostPlus and to Safeway's launch of Liquor Barn.  Short version is that Steve Boone more or less...

  • Nicely said, Zuf.VinoVino, seems like you would be a good one to advocate for OR at the West Coast PN throwdown, but since that's probably not in the cards, maybe we'll look for that wine and add it to the melee.Emark, I have not opened any of my 2010 Madrone Springs Syrah, because I still have some '09 and it seems a little soon.  I like a good...
