HAZE OF THE WINE

Spicy Syrah

Had a great 92 pointer - a 2009 spicy Syrah (my favorite) by Larner. They have a tasting room in Los Olivos that I want to try soon! 

Found it at K&L Wines for anyone local to LA:

Cab Franc….. love or hate?

Do I love them? Not sure yet. Still trying to figure them out.

A simple Zin?

How is it possible that Trader Joe’s Zin is surprisingly decent? Enjoying it.

Silver Oak = Great Go To

Silver Oak is always a great go to wine when you want something nice and reliable. We enjoyed it so much we went through 2 bottles of 2009 the other night!

What I love about wine

You know what I love about wine? It’s always there for you when you’ve had a long day (or year) to help you relax. It’s a socially acceptable lubricant to have with dinner as you can justify its health benefits. You can actually sound more intelligent the more you drink it and discuss it with other wine connoisseurs. 

Wine pretty much rules.  

It’s a Wine Wednesday for sure.

It is when we are vulnerable that we are our true selves.

Happiness

Happiness comes when you allow yourself to let go of perfection. You must realize that you don’t have to do absolutely everything that is expected of you, and you don’t have to please everyone. It comes when you are strong enough to fight for it, and when you learn how make sacrifices for what you are most determined to have. Happiness arrives when you master prioritization.

It’s simply, really

Wise words from a friend today:

" The magic comes when you’re able to be your honest self with someone who’s willing to be the same with you."

You can’t love them both

You should choose to love the person that makes you glad that you’re alive…. and hope that this is the same person who consumes you. If you only have both by having two people you love in your life, then you have to let one go…. even if you feel you can’t afford to loose someone else close to you.

You have to make a choice.

Maybe the wine hasn’t changed….

Maybe my tastes have changed. The wine I’m drinking tonight was once a go to “school night” wine, and now… tonight… it’s just not amazing me. Interesting.

Wine vs. beer?

I would apologize, but I’m not actually sorry. Wine always wins in the battle vs. beer. Why you ask? Wine has the potential to be more complex than beer ever possibly can, and everyone knows that the most complex things in life are better and more interesting. 

One could easily say the same is true with relationships.

So take a chance and dive in. Don’t be scared…. you will be surprised with how much complexity you (and your tastebuds) can handle and decipher with wine…. and with life. ;-)

Beer will only slow you down.

Inevitability

Sometimes the tension of something building up in the background is better than actually getting it.
