Finally cooling off enough here to want a red. I think maybe we have opened 1 bottle all summer. And I blame Mrs for that one! Sounded tasty tonight, so went with this. The Reserve is far tastier than the regular cab. Yum!

Thatís a good one. Visited their winery last year. Good stuff but pricey as hell. The ones they sell at Costco are decently priced. There was a good bottle that I liked (something named after a lion) and it was like $192. 😆

Great to see a recent post to the wine thread!

Brought a couple of bottles to Curate in Asheville for dinner with family earlier this month. I think itís the first time my in-laws ever really took a vacation and the first time I saw my dad in 3 years, so packed up a couple of pretty good bottles for the trip. Not pictured: the gin that went with that can of tonic.

I enjoy quite a few wines from Paso. Fully plan on getting to Daou the next time we are in the area!

Stopped drinking wines when COVID hit, ended up switching to Tito’s with mixers all pandemic. Can’t really explain why but I know my blood pressure got worse and I gained weight.
Now as “fall” starts in Florida I’m having my first glass of red and plan to return to wine.

Am I nuts to think the way I do?

Yes, very good. Bottle was a gift from by BIL so not sure exactly what it cost but guessing in the $100-$125 range.

That said, the Sena (same price range) was better. I really enjoy that wine.

I drink gin and tonics and red wine. Also have high BP and weight became a bigger struggle once I hit mid-late 40s. I think the BP is more about food and level of exercise in my case.

I drink red year round. As long as I am indoors and ac is cranked up.

I have so much wine in my closet and the fridge outside but we rarely drink it. My wife doesn't want any most of the time and I am not gonna down a bottle by myself so I end up drinking beer instead. I need to drink what I have to make room for new stuff...I have over 100 bottles! Yikes

You should invite me over. I love red wine. But I'll have to spend the night. I don't drink and drive.

It's Fall Release time for a number of my Washington State Wine Clubs. Asked a couple buddies to join me for tastings and pick-up at four of my clubs and dropped into a 5th and just picked up the wine.

Could only fit 8 cases in the back of our X6 and needed the back seat for the other 2. The X6 doesn't have the best "utility" for rear cargo space but I'm not sure the X5 would have had more room without stacking boxes.

Picked up at DeLille, Fidelitas, Avennia, aMaurice, and Dusted Valley. Made sure to enjoy a long dinner at Purple Cafe in Woodinville, WA with nothing but lots of water before heading home. With over 1,000 Washington State Wineries we have a few more yet to visit .
