2016 Bayshore Pinot Grigio

This California Pinot Grigio is a very good crisp white wine.  Slightly sweeter than the Italian version but really appropriate for the warm weather.  Melon, grapefruit flavors that pop when its slightly lower than room temperature.  Chilled takes away the flavor so take your choice.

I try to check out a few foreign movies or TV shows a few times a month.  This interesting movie comes from Argentina and is all about comics, drama and heroes.  A touch of Cosplay and super villain  is the premise of this wacky fun movie.  Here's my take.

This wine was a gift from a friend that we exchanged wines.  He has very expensive taste.  lol, this is a Pinot Noir from France.  Coming from one of the most expensive, rich region of Burgundy.  Here are some  notes:

  • 100% Pinot Noir, on clay, marl and limestone rocks.
  • Aged for one year on average, followed by several months in vats to stabilize the wine before bottling.
  • Brilliant ruby robe, raspberry. A striking nose, with an aroma of red fruit, blackcurrant. Fresh on the palate, with peppery notes

La Fussiere is a large Premier Cru vineyard at the very southern end of the Cote d'Or, within the Maranges appellation. It is located on the south-facing vineyard above the village of Dezize-les-Maranges, and is planted mainly to Pinot Noir with a small amount of Chardonnay as well

Tenet - Back to the movies

Being a huge Christopher Nolan Fan I was not going to let the Corona Virus stop me from seeing his new movie spectacular with his Black lead star.  This mind bending action thriller puts you back into the "inception" mind set of where things are going.  Not really sure where this one is going but we went to the movies just to see it

Chaz starts up the conversation with what is needed for people, businesses, schools. Whatever. Is it worth being optimistic or do we sit and pray like most Americans that things will get better regardless? we can’t walk away from the conversation without the impact of the Corona Virus

The Equalizer is medium to full-bodied with a fruit-forward character. The 2015 Equalizer Red Blend is deep purplish to ruby in color. Its nose has plenty of blackberry, black cherry, baking spice and vanilla notes that are both intense yet elegant.

The Umbrella Academy season 2

Alicia and I sit down to watch season 2 of this cleverly created and directed Netflix show.  Because there are so many superhero shows out, we didn’t expect the encore to be as good as the first season.

On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates the Umbrella Academy and prepares his "children" to save the world. In their teenage years, though, the family fractures and the team disbands. Fast forward to the present time, when the six surviving members of the clan reunite upon the news of Hargreeves' passing. They work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father's death,

The team recaps Democratic Convention and what were our thoughts of the pageantry as well as the whole feeling during this current cycle of the election race. Flip off of that’d we get into the corruption of money in politics.

In the middle of enjoying the new Model Y. I wake up to some critical messages in the Model 3 about my electrical system and the failure of the 12V battery. Here's my experience and what I learned along the way. Volume was really bad, up and down throughout the video. Sorry

This is one of the featured wines from the Wonderful Wine. co.  This white wine from France is clean and mineral focused with notes of green apple, lemon curd, and running naked through a field of white flowers.
