It’s been awhile since I’ve posted my thoughts on wine and that’s been due sadly to drinking what I hoped were great buys but turned out to be less than mediocre. Many of the wines we’ve picked up have been deals at those prices but lacked flavor and that “thing” wines have that separate great wines from the rest. It’s not been for lack of trying.
I’d say we probably went through four or five cases of various wines purchased mostly from Grocery Outlet and they were good. But nothing had that “pop” that makes me want to include them for Pure Indulgence. Even the more current wines were less than stellar.
The challenge here is going to be finding those spectacular gems in a lot full of coal. It’s doable but it takes time. In the meantime, we’re going to feature more producers.
I’d LIKE to get an interview with Craig of Cornerstone Cellars out of Napa as we have reviewed his wines and even the lower end wines such as Stepping Stone line are examples of wines that have been crafted with care. The higher wines from this producer are good examples of why Napa Valley is a front runner in wine making and why Napa is on the map.
I’m aiming to bring more wine reviews to the site, along with podcasts for Pure Indulgence where we spend time sampling, talking about the wine making process and educating you, the reader/listener on the joys of the Pure Indulgence lifestyle.
News to many of you, I’ve decided to make Pure Indulgence a part of my career in hopes that the Lifestyle will become just that.
Until next time,
