Gettin’ down at the Strip… Mall.

Sometimes the place to be is the strip mall.

Think about it!

If you’re hungry, just head on over to Panera…

Panera... I dare ya!

I got me half a turkey sandwich and a bowl of black bean soup.

If there’s a BevMo nearby, and it’s a Saturday, you can do a little wine tasting…

Well what do you know?

Six wines on a lazy Saturday? Why not?

More so than normal, I was really stoked on the wines they had for tasting…

The Cala Blanca 2009 Verdejo was crisp... Hella crisp.

The Gloria Ferrer 2008 Carneros Chardonnay was the bomb. It had a great balance of creaminess and acidity. For ten bucks, we had to buy us some.

The Triplebank 2010 Marlborough Pinot Noir was nice and ripe.

The Francis Coppola 2008 Director's Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley fell a little short of what I have come to expect from Dry Creek Zinfandels, though it did stay true to the style of the region.

Gnaughty Vines 2008 Old Vine Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley was a fruit bomb. Though delicious, it came across as a little fake to me.

The Corazon de Plata 2010 Syrah/Tennat had a nice mix of dark fruit and bicycle tires.

BevMo even had some cheese and crackers for us to enjoy…

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

Not a bad way to spend a weekend…

Not bad at all.

Stay Rad,

Jeff
