We're enjoying a 2021 Raeburn Russian River Valley Pinot Noir this evening. I bought it to go with a piece of Scottish salmon and its accompaniments.

Enjoy. Austin Hope has been my regular go to for a while. The manager at a liquor store I used to frequent gave me a bottle a few years ago to try. At the time it was only $35? Fast forward, it's going for $53 up here now.

I tried this yesterday.

I had the wine below at a restaurant last night. It was delicious. Googled it today and the reviews are okay. That begs the question: how come some wine just taste so good at restaurants or wineries even though online reviews are so so? Things are very subjective, but I’m curious to learn whether there are other reasons.

I think it's can be even more complicated than person-to-person reviews. I remember sharing a bottle of 2008 Caymus Special Selection I had saved for years with some friends at a steakhouse where we had a great time. At the time I thought it was one of the best bottles of wine I ever had. I hunted to find more and overpaid for 2 more bottles. When I opened those, they were good, but nothing like the first bottle. There can be variations between bottles especially if bought separately from different places, and people's tastes clearly vary. But I really think our enjoyment of a particular bottle is significantly influenced by where we drink it, who we share it with, what we eat with it and our mood. In other words, sometimes it's just in our heads.

Quite possibly the smoothest wine I've ever had. Almost too smooth. I typically like blends but I'm on the fence about this one. It was good enough that I'd want to drink it again, just not sure I'd want to pay for it again.

Catching up for a few days here. I have the Soaring Wines Petite Sirah opened for later. This was one that we purchased at a wine festival a couple weeks ago.

I'll toss in what we're doing here this evening. It's a Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir from Oregon that will go with a piece of (farmed) Kvarøy Arctic salmon baked with tarragon and garlic.

Been doing a glass of red for my heart for about 15 years now; still don't like it. I've had Bogle, Ménage a Trois, and a few others I don't remember the names. I've had cabs, chianti, syrah and red blends, I still don't like it. To quote a Big Bang Theory character, oh goody, grape juice that burns.

Other ways to get the benefits if you really don’t like wine…

I'm just the opposite. I like wine. It's pretty much the only alcohol I drink, usually only on Friday nights, like tonight. But I have high blood pressure, controlled with meds, and lately after a night of a few glasses, I wake up in the middle of the night and my heart is banging like crazy.

So, not drinking tonight, and may just quit altogether. Have tried different meds, even one that's designed to be taken during a high BP episode, nothing stops that banging in my chest and head. It's scary and only happens when I drink. I'm a senior and it may just be that I can't drink anymore.

Cracked this open and decanting it while waiting for people to arrive for dinner. This should be consumed now according to friend whose family owns the vineyard.
