Thatís a great brand. Expensive but very tasty.

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 .

We had some nice wines when meeting friends in Asheville last weekend:

Friday night: 2 bottles Sena (2015)
Saturday night: Vineyard 29 Aida Estate (2015), Silver Oak (2015) and Lewis Cabernet (2018)

Now I have no wine left in Asheville, but that’s ok since we won’t be back there until the Spring.

I need to remember to look for the Sena when I am out and about. I always think about it when I am not looking at wine!

Itís pretty hard to find. Benchmark Wine and B-21 online are the 2 places I have found it. I like the 2018 but it needs a little more time. Really like the 2015 but itís getting harder to find and more expensive.

Celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary today. Was considering what to have at dinner and saw this. We visited the Donati Family Vineyard about 10 years ago, and thought it apropos. Winery is a lovely Chateau on Hwy 46. One of many on that stretch of road!

Wine delivery day. Except two of the more important ones (Realm Cellars and Mayacamas) havenít arrived yet as we close in by 5 pm. Fucking FedEx. Maybe posting this will trigger the arrival of the 2 missing shipments.

Finally got the bottles delivered from Realm Cellars when they offered to ship fresh bottles after the FedEx fuckup. (Mayacamas just returned.)
