New SoMar Photos

Thanks to my mom, I now have some new photos of SoMar up that she took, as well as some professional ones. I can’t believe that it’s taken me so long! They can be viewed through the Flickr link on the left-hand navigation bar. I continue to love my job at SoMar, as I meet so many interesting people every day! In other wine news, I did something I’ve never done before – dumped a bottle of wine! I don’t know if all Oriel wines are bad, but this 2003 Cotes du Rhone (100% Syrah) was awful. It was extremely vinegary, despite the fact that this was supposed to be a good vintage. I should have known better than to buy such a cheap bottle! I substituted it for a 2008 Maculan Pino and Toi from Veneto, which my boss Steve regularly recommends to customers. Although it is only 15% Pinot Grigio (60% Tocai, 25% Pinot Bianco), for me the traditional bouquet of that grape dominated – it was crisp and fresh, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! So did my mom, who I am slowly converting into a white wine lover. 🙂
