We recently finished reading 32 Yolks, the memoir published by acclaimed chef Eric Ripert.  You may know Chef Ripert as the 3-Michelin Starred chef of acclaimed New York City restaurant Le Bernardin.  Or you may know him from various episodes of Anthony Bourdain's TV p...

This was an absolutely epic week in our wine lives!

It's not everyday you get to try a real legendary wine that was perfectly stored and aged since release. Cameron recently had that experience.

For those not familiar, Cheval Blanc is a Cab Franc and Merlot centric "first growth" estate in Saint-Emilian, in the "Right...

Natalie and I were lucky enough to see this last night, thanks to an invite from a good friend. While different from the first two movies, it did focus on what is most important in the world of wine. Not whether a wine gets huge scores. Not whether it's highly allocate...

This time, we went with a wine we randomly found in our offsite cellar--a 2006 Chateau Bonnin Pichon. We have no idea what we paid for it years ago, but it's probably a $25 bottle now. We've stored it at 55 degrees for probably 6 or 7 years, at least. Maybe longer.

One recent Sunday, we were in the mood to try something new.  None of the usual spots seemed to fit the bill, and we were eager to branch out a little bit.  We also wanted to try a new BYOB spot, which isn’t so easy to find in Dallas (unless you want Thai).  We ran acr...
