Bad Blogger, Bad

I've been a complete lazy bum. I've been involved in all sorts of wine activities the past few weeks and haven't made any time to type them up. Rather than give a short synopsis of each activity, I'll write about my experiences over the next few entries. Since I have no big dinner plans this week, I could use the material.

Saturday night I corked a bottle of Four Graces Pinot Noir - a wonderful, layered wine that tastes more like a French Burgundy than an American Pinot. Gamey, dry and with a slight hint of plum and berry. It's something I probably would have hated 10 years ago when I was first getting into the big, bright and jammy California wines. I absolutely love it now. Through the WSET class, I found that I have a real taste for gamey red wines. It has to be the Francophile in me!

If you get the chance to pick up a bottle of Four Graces, Pinot Noir, go for it. For $25, it's an absolute gem. And their Pinot Gris is also quite good.

Tomorrow I'll tell you all about putting together a gift case of wine for my friends' wedding.

Until then,

Alli M.

Menage a Trois is also a terrific red. I always get them mixed up although I think Menage a Trois is a blend, not a pinot noir.

Menage a Trois is a blend that I don't think includes any Pinot Noir. Menage A Trois is nice, but Four Graces is a lot better (and a little more expensive - about $8-$10, but worth it).

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Sbobet Casino 88Tangkas
