Gerry Baker  Wine, beer, cocktails, the occasional cat video, living in the moment

Cool off from that summer heat with an SPK Fizz. Hendricks Gin, House-Made Strawberry Shrub, Lemon & Candy. The perfect refresher. •

Putting in a little bit Ultimate 93 gas in my tank was like giving my car a Red Bull. #mpg #givesyouwings

Two new wines by the glass just in time for the weekend. Boomtown Syrah big, bold dark blackberry & currant with a beautifully meaty finish. Picq Vosgros has gorgeous mineral qualities with notes of pears, peanut shells and yellow apples. •

Always great tasting wines from @littleguywineco such grace, balance and freshness from all three of these wines, makes them easy to drink on even these warm spring days. •

This zippy Roero is a bit like a liquid salad; Lemon zest, green apple skin, flinty minerality with bitters greens. #whitewine #wine #sommlife #longday #italianwine #arneis #tasty #fresh

Always enjoyable to taste some of best wines Washington has to offer. These two syrahs from K Vintners show the importance of site; MCK with more cooling mint/eucalyptus & The Hidden with more bluefruit and power. #happyplace #kvintners #syrah #redwine #wine #wallawalla #washingtonstate #columbiavalley #sommlife #steakwine

Chateauneuf-du-Pape vs Zinfandel vs Amarone. All showing over-ripe, jammy fruit & high alcohol. CdP over-ripe, but no residual sugar and most balanced structure. Zinfandel showing tangy red fruit & a bit of gas from spontaneous malo. Amarone darker and more dried fruit profile. #redwine #winetasting #thursdayswithmick #grenache #corvina #frenchwine #italianwine #californiawine #sonoma #veneto #rhonevalley

On its own, the 2015 Cornas could be mistaken for new world Syrah in all of its ripe dark fruit, intense meaty character and slightly hot finish, until you compare it to the Marietta Gibson’s block. Warm,jammy fruit, black pepper and that touch of oak. So similar, yet so different. •

From jalapeño to tomato leaf to cabbage, pyrazine compounds manifest themselves in many ways & intensities. Classic Sancerre to worldly popular New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Know it and make it your friend. #thursdayswithmick #wine #whitewine #sauvignonblanc #sommlife #goodmorning #winelife #loirevalley #sancerre #pouillyfume #bordeauxblanc #marlborough
