Been a couple of weeks, but I've been away enjoying and celebrating life with my four brothers.
I thought I knew everything about my dad, but when friends and relatives start reminiscing about the past, it's refreshing to know that he he enjoyed life (in his way) to the fullest. I know mom is waiting and this time around he's going to have to listen and obey. R.I.P. dad.
While in PA for Thanksgiving week, I did get to taste this years Beaujolais Nouveau. Reminded me of banana candy mixed in with a little finger nail polish. Gotta be the worst ever! I thought this was supposed to be a banner year! What Happened?
Also, finished a quite a few bottles of Malbec. My one brother is into the Malbec's right now.
Best of the lot was a Marcus James. Nice wine and fantastic price, $8 for 1.5L bottle. Stupid me would have probably passed on that one if wine shopping.
Got home in time for Thanksgiving dinner. I brought a '07 Damiani Meritage and an Anthony Road '08 Riesling to dinner. Had another Riesling from Lamoreaux Landing, but took that along with a few other Finger Lakes wines to PA for my brothers. Not so surprising was a phone call to my wife on Friday from her sister. She requested that I buy her an Anthony Road "08 semi-dry Riesling for Xmas. Just maybe, I gotta her off the "Red Cat."
Last evening I had a real nice Seyval from Hosmer Winery and tonight I opened an Agent for Change Paso Robles Zinfandel. I have a hard time with Zin's, but this one is a lighter bodied and smoother that what I have been tasting. Reviews on both are in the works.
To wrap up this post, I would like to have a rare "Joeshico Rant" (think I may use this again).
To those who like to comment on my blog for the purpose of just linking to your site without any comment on the article, or to give a negative comment, your comment will not be published.
For the anonymous a-hole who does not like my reviews. 1. I am not a wine critic. 2. My blog is more personal with reviews of wines I like and why I like them and 3. If your purpose in reading wine blogs is to get off and you just "don't get it," stick with Robert Parker and ejaculate all you want.
Now I feel better. Back to work!!!
