Howdy!

And no, I'm not a podunk idiot, but I play one on TV! I am just an average red wine drinker, though I'll admit before 1995 I was stuck on sweet white wines!  You see, in 1995, I was sent by my company to work in Paris for 3 weeks and that's where I learned to love red wines, particularly dry red wines like so many Bordeaux!

Since then I've moved away from beer and liquor and a drive to get "lit" fast, and toward being a real wine person, however you define that!  I've expanded my love for Bordeaux (though I still have a bottle of '86 Margaux I bought on that first trip), and have lived in many other wine regions in this country, including the Willamette Valley of Oregon, and the Columbia Valley in Washington (to this day, my favorite wines come from Walla Walla!).

I also started a wine blog, so feel free to follow me or whatever, I try to just tell it like I see it, so it might not be as sophisticated as you're used to, but I welcome all comers just the same!

Hi J and welcome to Snooth!

Doesn't look like you link is correct though, leads to nowhere, for now.

Sorry about that! Fat finger error on the link, but it should be fixed now!

Thanks!  I'm actually surprised they come out as well as they do sometimes, since 1) I am not a great photographer and 2) My digital camera is about 12 years old, so it has terrible resolution!  Someday I'll get an actual digital camera, but until then I at least have an iPhone now, which gives me options for some better photos, but in the meantime, we can look back at my old photos like old pictures from the 1960s!

Hello!

Cool blog with some mighty fine wines. I am a Bordeaux fan, especially Saint Emilion and Pomerol, but I like to support local wines too . Really, I am up to try wine from anywhere. 

Cheers~
