Weekly Wine Review - Chilean Red Blend - 2012 Emiliana Coyam

I was lucky enough to check off a bucket list item this past weekend. We decided to sacrifice the splendor of 120 degree June temperatures in Arizona to trek to the 2016 Aspen Food and Wine Classic. We decided to make a last minute change to our presentation on the last day, and traded our spot to see the Top Chef winner in order to attend Chile Untamed.  It turned out to be a fantastic surprise, and put a visit to the wine country in Chile on our list of future vacation plans. One of the wine we had was presented by the winemaker, an energetic Spanish girl who instantly bonded with Wino4life wife.  Coyam is a certified organic and biodynamic red blend from the Calchagua region.

Weekly Wine Review - Napa Red - 2011 B Cellars Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

We found ourselves about to try a new recipe for a less starchy side dish - broccoli tots!  What better way to welcome this new recipe to the family than with a beautiful New York strip steak and a big ole' Napa Cab!
