Wine With Jake: Vinirari Balteo 2010, Val d'Aosta, Italy at Nostrana
I really love convergences. Even more so when there is wine
involved. Old friend Jake Parrott is in town.  Jake is a guy who works hard and plays hard,
the kind of guy that energizes you by being in the vicinity.  After a rather long day for him we managed ...
Old friend Jake Parrott is in town. Jake is a guy who works hard and plays hard, the kind of guy that energizes you by being in the vicinity. After a rather long day for him we managed to rendezvous at Nostrana, reminisce, laugh a lot, and nosh. With a Funghi Verde pizza shared, tagliata for him ...

Due Diligence: Vasse Felix Chardonnay Estate, Margaret River, 2012
I don’t consume nearly as much Australian wine as I used to.
Mostly, that’s okay, because I long ago left behind the over-the-top exuberance
and hot-climate jam fruit many of them embody and I no longer drink the

50 year old Laubade Armagnac in a cocktail? Cue the outrage!
Would you put a 50
year old single estate Armagnac in a cocktail? Many people would call
you crazy, or at the very least a perpetrator of high crimes and misdemeanors,
for desecrating such a venerable brandy by mixing it in a **shudder**
cocktail. Your pa...
Many people would call you crazy, or at the very least a perpetrator of high crimes and misdemeanors, for desecrating such a venerable brandy by mixing it in a ***shudder*** cocktail. Your parentage would be questioned; teeth would be gnashed; veins would throb; and heads would explode.

Time In A Bottle: A Revery on 1942 Chateau de Laubade Armagnac

Cassoulet at the Kesslers 2015: The Main Event
BettyLu called us to table. We obediently filed into the dining room, peering at the
names on the cards, looking for our seats, pleasantly relaxed by the lovely
aperitif wines Lou had provided and eager for the meal to begin. From his marvelous cellar….wait...
From his marvelous cellar….wait…what?...what? Ah ha, Lou has decided to depart from whatever we thought the traditions might be for cassoulet by offering up a Vermentinu That's right, a Vermentinu. Or Vermentino. Or Rolle, as in let the good times. It is the Antoine Arena Haut de Carco ...
