For a number of years I have overheard friends asking John what wines he has been buying. He freely shares that information, but it often comes during an evening of varied conversation, the consumption of a bottle or two of wine and dinner. Remembering the suggested wines the following day can be a feat.
On a recent trip to Boise, ID, Paso Robles, CA and the Central California Coast I began paying more attention to John’s choices and the particular wines he was purchasing. I realized how much research and understanding of wine it takes to zero in on special vintners and their magical elixirs! I have finally taken notice of his commitment and dedication and I’m taking notes! I thought sharing those notes with our friends might be appreciated.
So begins a blog that I hope will offer our friends some help choosing wonderful wine or trying ones you might not have thought of!
