2012 La Finca Malbec

A cold and crisp late Winter day outside - perfect for a hearty Red inside.  Picked up this one down at my local Trader Joe's for $3.99.  At that price, I wasn't expecting much, but this one delivers, right up to the $4 mark.  Yep - it's a Malbec, crazy dark purple and nice roasted earthy notes, but it lacks a bit of a backbone that some of the better Argentinian Malbecs posess.   Now, don't get me wrong, I'll be back for more as the price is certainly right.

Here's a few more reviews (including a great video review):

Reverse Wine Snob ---->  A $3.99 Malbec worth at least $4.50

Cheap Wine Girls ----->  What do cow's drink?

Below is the Cheap Girl's review on the ole' youtube

Almanac Brewing Company Biere de Chocolat American Porter

Nice and sunny out here on the Left Coast this fine Sunday afternoon.  Popped the top on an Almanac Brewing Company Biere de Chocolat American Porter.  This one is touted as an "California Table Beer" - meaning that the brewers "select the best in locally sourced fruit and blend it into their beers that are inspired by the great brewing traditions of the world".  This one has a couple of unique ingredients:

Dandelion Chocolate - this company roasts small-batch, unique, single-origin cocoa beans to create rich complex chocolate bars that highlight the unique flavors of their different terroirs (what - is this a wine?). The chocolate used in this beer is sourced from Madagascar and Rio Caribe Venezuela.

Ivanhoe hops - sourced from farms in Clearlake, California which lend a citrusy note to the beer.

This one is only 5.5% abv.  Lightly carbonated, the malts give this one a midnight black color with a very small amount of foam.  Easy drinking and smooth.  Glad I tried this one out at the recommendation of the local beer shoppe.  Cheers!

Click the link for some Propaganda from the Brewery ----->  quaffable chocolate brew

Some reading material courtesy of Boyd - can't wait to dig in to these!

Finally received my 3 pack of The Windowsill / The Real Danger split 7" vinyl.  Kinda like the purple - what's your favorite flavor?

Boeger Hangtown Red Lot 46

A beautiful Saturday afternoon is coming to an end, but have no fear as I've cracked open a nice red blend to start the evening off right.  Yes - posting some Red Wine Thoughts on a Saturday, as you know there is some kinda sporting event that I'll be watching about this time tomorrow - go Niners!  I thought it quite appropriate that I have a wine from the foothills of California, where the original 49ers swarmed to to find gold - yep that was 1849 - get yer history books out....

This is a Boeger Hangtown Red lot 46.  Now I've waxed poetic about lot's 39 and 40 in previous posts and have been working my way through the blends.  This one is the best of the Lot - no pun intended.  Seems that they have gone away from the Rhone varietals and made this one with Cab, Zin, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Barbera.  What a nice blend with the Zinfandel predominating - just what I like.  At only about $7 smackers down at my local Trader Joes, ya can't go wrong.

Propaganda from the Winery - Italian and BBQ Dishes

Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but the Juke is empty and I'm picking some covers to put in - some tough choices to narrow it down and you'll be hearing some of them them on the show tomorrow.  Got a nice section devoted to Rockabilly too, with some Cash, Presley, Cochran, Vincent, Smith and Bennett.  Hmm - I need to do a Rockabilly show soon.  Threw in the few Outsiders related 45's too - I'm gonna need some help with that show - gonna be a fun one.

Speaking of the covers show - check out the video below - it's the state senator from Minnesota impersonating Mick Jagger - hilarious stuff!

Al Franken as Mic Jagger, Tom Davis as Keith Richards, backed by the Solid Gold Band led by Michael Miller (on guitar!), Dave Edelstein on bass, and Ron Aston on drums.
