virtuallars  A lot of #wine, food & love of my #cats #Oregon

When you get up but are still thinking about that wine from last night... this Grenache from Latta was a little slutty but so freakin good. Thanks to @full_pull_wines for the recommendation. I still have another one to enjoy another day. #wine #wawine #winelover #uplandvineyard #lattawines #rhone #rhonelover #grenache

Made a special valentines dinner for my hubby 💕 Pan seared scallops in a ginger beurre blanc with asparagus atop a potato & parsnip purée. Not sure it was the best wine pairing but this southern Rhone blend is so tasty it doesn't matter. And guess what? The food tasted so good I think I got one sip of wine before I scarfed the whole plate down. So romantic right? And as much as I love to dine out, tonight for us is about a special home cooked meal & a killer bottle of wine. Dave's plate up top is a much prettier plating but the sear on my scallops down below has merit too! Happy Valentines Day! 💕

Been a while since we've opened @lennewine. This 2010 Pinot is in such a perfect place. #oregonwine #orpinot #orpinotnoir #wine #winelover

It's a #GrenacheBlanc kind of night. Made a sunchoke & kale casserole that paired so beautifully with tonight's dinner. The '13 Sheldon was more rounded and fat. The '15 Rotie is younger & definitely brighter. It's got a neat honey & grapefruit thing going on. They both pair well & I call this a success! Thanks to @sonomawilliam for both the intro to Sheldon wines & the inspiration to open one tonight! #wine #winelover #wineandfoodpairing #WAwineVsCAwine #rhonewine

Loving on this 2011 @elkcove with our salmon dinner tonight. But with all the lemon and olive and caper accent I thought this #roussanne also paired beautifully. Bravo all around! #foodandwine #winelover #orwine #orpinot
