I haven’t written about wine yet on this blog, but it’s a big hobby of mine — both enjoying and also growing my own grapes for winemaking. One of my favorite wineries is a small, little-known winery in Sonoma County: David Coffaro winery. They make fabulous wines for people who love tasty, fruit-forward, big red wines. On top of that, Coffaro is a critic of high-priced wines. He prices his to make a “fair” return, no more. While many Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels are $40 or more, for instance, his are $28, or under $20 if purchased on futures.

In his New California Wine, Matt Kramer of Wine Spectator wrote that Coffaro “never makes a bad wine … I have friends who routinely order six or eight cases … they’re all lovely: intense, free of intrusive oakiness, and purely made.”

If you’re visiting Sonoma, they do a great tasting including both released wines and often a barrel tasting. If not, check out the online ordering and give them a chance. I recommend to pick 4 different blends or Zins, a great investment of about $100. My personal favorites are the Zinfandels, Block 4 field blend, and Escuro, a dark, rich, blend.

Ahhhh sistersara…The Brunette Medavista suspects you are right. Isn’t it nice to look at that picture on the post and think back on the good ol’ days when Dick was really turnin’ on the charm for our dear Georgie. What a whistful and tender feeling I have about those days. But, I suppose we should have seen the whole Dick & Katherine thing coming since Dick will be retiring soon, and Katherine was one of the folks who was responsible for hiring Dick at Haliburton all those years ago before he was our president…er…um…I mean VICE president. Come on http://tropaadet.dk/lorainestevens3094081845
