1999 Marcassin Three Sisters Vineyard Chardonnay

My first impression: Not too fatty at all. That's a good sign. Time has moderately cut down its terroir-affected butter flavor and oily texture. And yet acidity has survived somehow and even feels crispy.

This is a gracefully aged American chardonnay from Helen Turley.

I’ve fallen for this 2015

Yes please...may I have another?

I miss being outdoors. I wish I could go hiking. I wish I could sit and work/write/read outside for hours. I can’t wait until the air quality improves, but I also know my inconvenience is nothing in comparison to the devastation so many have directly experienced from the camp fire (and Woolsey fire).—————————————————

We couldn’t decide which to open so we opened all of them and had a Riesling party. 🤘 We also decided to put our heads together and eventually buy a German winery. Stay tuned. Planning big goals. #wine #riesling #mosel #germany #sonomacoast #calilife #trocken #havemeyer #sturbanshof #davisfamilyvineyards #winelovers

Christmas came a little early this year:) #marcassin #pinotnoir #sonomacoast

2012 @martinelliwinery Blue Slide Ridge.
Blueberry, blackcurrant, dark cherry coke and kirsch, and asian spicies. Full bodied at 15.2% but there's enough acidity and mineral which gives a nice lift and elegance that makes you come back for more. It's hard to do ripe right, but was a success here.

I have managed to put together an ultimate tasting of 2012 Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. Just need the right time and people to enjoy this rare opportunity. #wine #winetasting #winelover #wines #winestagram #marcassin #aubert #peterandmichael #pinotnoir #sonomacoast #fortrossseaview

The setting was beautiful but the skies were smoky today at @occidentalwines, with Catherine Kistler. The clean simplicity of the architecture, by Sonoma-based Nielsen:Schuh speaks volumes about her dad Steve Kistler’s authentic, minimalist approach to winemaking. Both the wine and the winery are quietly spectacular.

The greater San Fran area is scoring well. Two samples, two triple crescents - the highest accolade that can be bestowed on a pastry, awarded to baked goods that are capable of bringing wonder into the lives of us humans.
⠀⠀
The final days of our adventure are delivering some top contenders on the global search for the best croissants. I'm not saying this one is the world greatest, but it was pretty excellent. Amusingly slender, but carrying a rare substance. Its leafy layers were almost like thin crepes tightly rapped into it's un-curved twist. The flavour was whole-mealy, slightly sour, as natural as the surrounding Sonoma Coast.
⠀⠀
The wonder, as always, was heightened by the context for consuming this treat. Our final day away was spent like many of the previous four months, with a hike punctuated by a picnic. On this occasion, we hugged the Californian coast of the Pacific Ocean. We'd propelled ourselves as close to home as we could. And as we sat eating our (US) baguette and (US) goats cheese, we stared across the ocean that separated us from Australia. We'd need a plane to take us the final step.
⠀⠀
This was a truly wondrous croissant experience. But the search is not over; the search will never be over. And for now, it will continue back in beautiful Sydney.

Holy moley. Jesse from @drinkcacoco had us absolutely ((((swoooning))) over Cacoco drinking chocolate today. With temperatures falling, it’s the perfect time to warm up and get cozy with a cup of this incredibly decadent and completely delicious drinking chocolate. Organic, vegan, heart healthy, fair trade, and absolutely a mood elevator and smile maker. Find @drinkcacoco on our coffee and tea aisle. (ps- makes a great gift for that chocolate lover in your life!)

As the luminous, amber glow casts its presence over Bodega Bay, we sit and capture a glimpse of gratitude inside our wine glasses tonight. Cheers to Friday!
