Free run Paperbark Chardonnay

From a fifth-generation winemaking family in southern Australia’s historic Barossa Valley region, Paperbark wines are as loveable as their namesake, an Australian tree with peeling bark and fluffy white flowers. 2016 Paperbark Chardonnay is a pale yellow in the glass, sharing aromas of ripe peach with notes of tart citrus. This barrel-matured wine’s palate is medium bodied, with notes of nougat and spice from wild fermentation, and a hint of vanilla from oak aging

This Sauvignon Blanc was very ordinary and came from a Groupon deal from the Splash wines distributors.  This light aromatic wine is not a stand out from most other sauvignon blanc wines.  The taste is ordinary and should be used as a compliment to food as oppose to a great stand alone wine.  Wine connoisseurs stay away, beginners its good to learn and build your palate on.  Check out online reviews on Groupon wines to get more details about the distributors​​​​​​​

MINDHUNTER (Netflix)

On this episode, Alicia and I binge watch the new Netflix series by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, Mindhunter.  This psychological series about the FBI behavior science unit gets us in to the mind of the FBI agents that tried to figure out the deviant behaviors of these killers.  A slow but well worth it series.  

In the late 1970s two FBI agents expand criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters. Mindhunter is an American crime drama web television series created by Joe Penhall, based on the true crime book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.

There is something inherently special and charismatic about Tuscan wine. Some say this is instilled by the vine, while others are charmed by the balance and full-flavor. What wins us over is the wine's proven food-friendliness. The contrast of tart cherry, plum, and strawberry flavors fuse with earthy notes of oregano, smoke, and tobacco, making it a wonderful dinner companion. Non-vintage Villa Amoroso Toscana Rosso hits every flavor note we expect, leaving us to want nothing else, except for maybe a few more bottles
