@FieldsFamWines Fields Family Wines 2016 Grenache Blanc (SRP $24): Grenache Blanc is a variety that’s widely planted in Spain and France. I haven’t seen it planted in large numbers anywhere else. Yet it grows surprisingly well in the Alta Mesa sub-appellation of Lodi, California, based on what’s in my glass. Sourced from Delu Vineyards, this appealingly aromatic wine leads with vibrant tree fruit flavors followed by notes of tea leaf, fresh rose petal, and cut apple. Medium-bodied and nicely textured, beautifully integrated acidity provides good energy and lift—building a brightness that extends through the medium-long, pleasing finish. A reliable producer year after year—winemaker and social media rock-star Ryan Sherman delivers the goods. Learn more about this small-production winery at fieldsfamilywines.com. #GrenacheBlanc #GrenacheDay #wine #winelover #Lodi #LodiWine #FindThisWine
Peruvian-style grilled half-chickens and a splash of Grenache Blanc. Cheers! #FriYAY #winelover #wine #WeberGrills #GrillOn #grilling #foodlover #GrenacheBlanc #GrenacheDay
You can (and should) try this at home #wine friends! Here's what you need: a bottle of @Pedroncelli 2014 Wisdom #CabernetSauvignon and this #recipe (Slow Cooker Beef) bit.ly/2NWoiw2. Great food & wine pairing for fall! #TasteUp4 #Autumn #foodporn #winelover #foodandwine #HappyFriday
What a morbid, bloody mess (lol)! Initium is the 1984 debut album by Samhain—the middle child (as I like to call them) between Glenn Danzig’s Misfits horror-punk band and Danzig (more of an evil, bluesy-metal). Active from 1983-87, their sound is generally heavier than Misfits but lighter than Danzig. I jammed this stuff in my teens, and enjoy it today; especially when I feel like listening to some wicked & catchy metal-laced punk. All of the Samhain stuff is long out of print and hard to find. I’m lucky enough to have the collectible boxset (with bonus comic book and old-school VHS tape). Cheers! #Samhain #Initium #1984 #TBT #ThrowbackThursday #punkrock #deathrock #horrorpunk #heavymetal #metalhead #gem #collectible #album #Danzig #timeless
Enjoying a splash of Pedroncelli Winery 2014 Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with tonight’s recipe: Slow Cooker Beef and Porcini Mushrooms. Ed St. John leads a #wine chat on Twitter tonight at 7PM EST; just follow #TasteUp4 to join. Cheers!
It’s always a great time discussing #wine with Julie Pedroncelli St John and Ed St John of Pedroncelli Winery. The winery and estate have been part of Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley for over 90 years, so Ed is full of good stories. I’m putting my apron on and pairing some of their wines with Slow Cooker Beef and Porcini Mushrooms—all while tweeting. Join the fun tomorrow (9/20) at 7PM EST by using Twitter hashtag #TasteUp4. See the link to the recipe in the comment section. Cheers!

Borell-Diehl #MüllerThurgau Trocken: Sleek, pure & austere. Shy aromas of mineral & floral tones give way to flavors of crisp lemon, peach skin & hints of chalk, surrounded by a stimulating raciness. Such a wonderful food #wine—pairings are seemingly endless. #SuperSize 1L-$12 #TasteTheNew #winelover #GermanWine
Summer’s relentless heat, humidity, and rain were hard on the little jungle. We’re moving to fall, and will wait for the weather to catch up. Get with the program, #MotherNature! #lol #garden #flowers #autumn #fallinVA
Getting fired up! I have a rack of lamb (… sorry Mary) and a bottle of Pinot. #HappyFriday, friends! *Clink* #winelover #wine #WeberGrills #GrillOn #grilling #foodlover
Originally had this on cassette and wore it out. I never get tired of some early Suicidal Tendencies. And what a lineup: Muir | George | Clark | Trujillo | Herrera. Well you can put a bullet in my head, but you can't kill a word I've said... #TBT #SuicidalTendencies #LightsActionRevolution #1990 #ThrashMetal #FunkMetal #HeavyMetal #metalhead #ThrowbackThursday #music #album #gem
