Delicious Haut-Medoc paired with lamb at @anewtable. Fabulous food and wine throughput the entire dinner
Tasty Carneros Chardonnay from @sonoma_loeb paired tastefully with black truffle pesto risotto with grilled chicken breast (see photo 2). Chardonnay had tropical, stone fruit and citrus flavours and good acidity in balance with its oak
Remembering my Dad!
Bobcats have returned for the winter
2011 Dominus paired beautifully with steak for dinner. Relatively young but well balanced and tannins soft and well integrated. Herbal notes on front end followed by mouth filling, but not over extracted, delicious black berry fruit flavours. Cassis, soft tobacco and a little pencil lead. Overall a medium body. Don’t miss the steak in picture two and the chef in picture three #dominuswinery
One of three wines for our roast chicken tonight. Unicus is a Gruner Veltliner from @culminawinery Margaret’s Bench Vineyard # #bcwine
Returning home - why?????
LeBron and the Cavs fall to the Pelicans. The home crowd was happy #nba #nola
Beautiful sunrise earlier this week
As sommelier for an Italian wine tasting event quality control is everything. Also got a chance to wear my Borsalino hat from San Gimignano #giustiprosecco #borsalinohat
Leading an Italian wine tasting at our friend's house tonight
Risotto with peas, enoki mushrooms and bacon topped with seared scallops and shrimp. The Fandago from @terravistavineyards was singing with the food and the Chardonnay was a great pre-dinner drink #bcwine #terravistawinery
BAM! Rosemary, Dijon pistachio crusted rack of lamb paired with @levieuxpin 2012 Equinox Syrah. Perfect complements. Thanks to Jay for the cooking; all I had to do was pair the wine. #bcwine #winery
