Magnifico Cuvee Bianco

Sometimes, a name really does say it all. The wines of Magnifico are nothing short of magnificent. They span Italy, from Tuscany, to Sicily and beyond. These beautiful wines showcase the best the country has to offer, which, by the way, is quite a bit, when it comes to wine. This blend is classically Italian, with crisp and refreshing notes. With some subtle and well-balanced tropical fruit flavors, this wine showcases quite a bit. With a refreshing finish of minerality, this is a great pair for fresh salads or seafood

Vidal Blanc grapes are grown from a hybrid of Trebbiano and Seibel varietals. This year, we covered the vines in bird netting to protect the grapes, and cooler summer temperatures let the grapes spend more time maturing on the vine. As soon as we picked the grapes, we chilled them and fermented them to ensure a delightful finish for this light-bodied and slightly sweet wine

The Foreigner

Quan is a humble London businessman whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love -- his teenage daughter -- dies in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. His relentless search to find the terrorists leads to a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official whose own past may hold the clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

On this episode, Alicia and I check out the second installment of The Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  We enjoyed the first one so much as well as a lot of other people that they made second one.   Previews show how exciting this one was going to be so we prepared for another thrill ride.

With their headquarters destroyed and the world held hostage, members of Kingsman find new allies when they discover a spy organization in the United States known as Statesman. In an adventure that tests their strength and wits, the elite secret agents from both sides of the pond band together to battle a ruthless enemy and save the day, something that's becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.

Oak Creek Syrah Review

Oak Creek Syrah is dark colored, full bodied, peppery and dense. Layered with spicy fruit and streaked with mineral undertones. This is a perfect example of a traditional varietal that has found its home in Arizona and is here to stay. Red meat and Italian food will only be enhanced by this rich and full red.
