Amazing Event last Sunday- Sept 16. Discussed abstract painting with my co-abstractionist Tom Peck to an audience of 70+. Fantastic venue, perfect weather, incredible food, remarkable local wines- all surrounded by a mind blowing contemporary art collection in a house built to hold it. Many thanks to Studios on the Park and everyone who made it happen!

2010 Nicora GSM. Cruising into the weekend with this one from @nicorawinery. 44% Grenache/44% Syrah/12% Mourvèdre. Black cherry, black currant, and wild berry fruit up front. Nice core of earth, dried herbs, cedar, dark chocolate, black pepper, and spice. Nice structure, still has some firm tannins, and a good finish. Always enjoy these wines from Nick Elliott. 91 points on the BOTV scale.

It’s possible for our personal experience to become a prison if we let it. With food, I tend to embrace that potential incarceration as a blessing. As an example, here’s a photo of a dish that contains my own deep Southern US roots mashed up with China, the Philippines, the new world, Spain and Hungary. This was so delicious! And it was made all that much more so by the amazing Paso Robles wine that I washed it down with. @allenskratch as always, thanks for the inspiration you give so freely, and the culinary connections from your own journey that you always share with me. This was delicious and soul filling, like the best deep Southern Soul Food, but way better than it ever was in Mississippi or Louisiana. Thanks @nicorawinery for the magic you make with grapes. #realfood #skratchlabs #weareallinthistogether #pork #pasorobles #nicorawines

Back in the swing of things from our Napa trip, now out at the river. This is how we do it after a long day on the water...Paso night!

2013 Nicora The Undisclosed. Tomorrow may be the first official day of summer but I’m not waiting to break out the white wine. Another good one here from @nicorawinery. A 50/50 blend of Viognier & Roussanne. No formal notes on this one today, just enjoying it to the fullest on this late afternoon. What I can tell you is that it’s pretty damn good...cheers!

Listening to reggae 🎶 while sipping on red 🍷 are a couple of my father’s favorite things. I raise my glass to all the father’s out there while listening to ‘Red, red wine’ @ub40. Happy Father’s Day 🍷#winecountrygal #ub40 #nicorawines #whatsinyourglass #winetasting #livinginthemoment #influencer #pasorobles #tincity

2012 Nicora Buxom. Another good one here from Nick Elliott and @nicorawinery—94% Syrah, 6% Grenache. Plush boysenberry and blueberry fruit. Very complex wine with notes of smoked meat, graphite, black licorice, coffee, white pepper, and mineral notes. Super long finish with mouth coating tannins. Drinking very well right now with a few years of age on it. 93 points on the BOTV scale.

2012 Nicora Syrah Shadow Canyon. Cruising into the Christmas weekend in style with this gem from Nick Elliott at @nicorawinery. Fruit forward blast of black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit. Nice and velvety in texture with a wonderful meaty core of smoke, earth, white pepper, and spice. More of a refined style of Syrah and much different from some of the more bolder Paso wines. Soft tannins, long finish...I rather like it! 93 points on the BOTV scale.

When good friends come to town. Can’t wait for another visit @vokelcellars #pasowine #everydayisanevent #nicorawines #saxum #vokelcellars #hermanstorywines

2010 Nicora Buxom. Wow, one the of the best wines I’ve had from Nick Elliott at @nicorawinery, big and bold, mostly Syrah. Ripe, blackberry, black raspberry, and blueberry fruit, full throttled. Wonderful and meaty mid-palate of dark chocolate, tobacco, and bacon fat, very savory. Definitely a ‘hot’ wine from the alcohol but it blows off over time. Firm structure and finishes with a great long finish. 94 points on the BOTV scale.
