Fred's Red Mendocino County Red Wine

Fred’s Red Mendocino County Red Wine Review

Fred’s Red Mendocino County Red Wine, bottled by McNab Ridge Winery Ukiah, California.

The Fred’s Red label named after the original McNab dog, Fred, and like Fred is a blend of many things. In this case, a base blend of Syrah and Zinfandel but with a large number of little known Portuguese varietals thrown in. It’s fresh, clean, soft, and an infinitely gulpable and enjoyable wine to have with anything off the grill.

On The Back Label

My name is Fred, a McNab Shepherd- a working dog established in Mendocino County over 100 years abo by my Scottish ancestors. Back then, we herded sheep. Today, the McNabs on this ranch round up grapes. A sheep dog herding grapes, you say? You may think I’m barking up the wrong vine here, but grapes, patrolling the vineyard, trying to remember where I buried that bone. I’m very particular about flavor and choose only select vines under which to bury my best bones. Better flavor, better aging. You’re sure to like Fred’s Red and so will your canine-loving friends. Cheers!

Alc. 14.8% BY VOL.

Brookstone Dash 4-Wheeled Expandable Carry-On Suitcase Review

The Brookstone Dash 4-wheeled expandable carry-on suitcase, is a very durable hard sides and lightweight design (it’s lightweight it weighs less than 7 lbs.), The hard shell exterior is made from an ultra-light, durable polycarbonate and ABS blend. The four 360º spinner wheels can very easily be pushed, bulled or scooted forward as you stand in lines. Retractable, extendable telescoping handle locks into place in 2 positions, and is tall enough for me a 6’3” man. The expandable sides (expands 2”) give you a little wiggle room when you come back from a trip with more than you took. The new interior straps and a zippered panel let you keep things a bit more organized.

It meets most U.S. airline carry-on requirements, you won’t get bothered if it fits in the overhead luggage bin. The dimensions (includes handle and wheels) are, 22″h x 14.3″w x 10″d, it weighs 6.6 lbs.

Brookstone provides a one-year limited warranty with this product, visit www.brookstone.com or call 1-800-846-3000 for more details.

Where did I buy it? Brookstone
What color did I buy? Black, it matches my larger checked luggage.
How much did it cost? It is usually $149, I purchased mine today on sale for $99.

HOTMIXOLOGY

Hotmixology hosted by Dave Elger, a life-long affair with liquor started as he recalls his father bringing home rare or hand made liquors and educating him about the importance of quality drinks.

Dave spent many years professionally representing a multitude of top liquor brands including Cabo Wabo, Pucker and Jim Beam, and launching some top brands of his own. Dave’s passion, personality and impeccable taste in fine spirits earned him the privilege to work directly with the Jim Beam family and with Cabo Wabo founder Sammy Hagar.

Today, and after decades of top experience, Dave is considered the “foremost authority on everything booze,” and is a leading industry expert regularly called upon by the media and industry heads. So hosting Hotmixology every week is the highlight of his and many viewers week. Dave’s passion for cocktails and entertaining pours through as he helps to shine the spotlight on some of the country’s best bartending talents while educating his audience on the art of mixology. Each week, Hotmixology brings its viewers uniquely themed episodes and accessible, fun-to-make cocktails in a “try this at home” style — perfect for any amateur mixologists interested in learning how to mix the perfect cocktail or expert mixologists who continue to learn and absorb inspiration from others in the field.

Plan B Wine Cellars Santa Barbara California

Plan B Wine Cellars 2011 Mourvendre Review

Plan B Wine Cellars, has a 2011 Mourvendre from Happy Canyon in Santa Barbara, California. The 2011 Mourvedre works well on it’s own or with just about anything, it’s my new go to wine. If you ask the winery they will say that the cool and wet growing season led to them reducing the crop load a bit and opening up the vine canopy to encourage light and air circulation around the fruit. The result is a wine that is a bit more fruit driven with plum and spice with the familiar smoky earthiness that they are known for. You could save this bottle but temptations will be there as it drinks well today. If you go to Santa Barbara, California wine trail, Plan B is a winery in an industrial part of of town yet they do everything right so make sure you stop by. Janis, wife and co-owner of Plan B is enjoyable and husband, Marlow knows his craft. You will be taken back with all the wine barrels yet realize after you start tasting that they need to supply the demand. They have an elegant wine bar that is both comfortable and educational. Marlow said that they chose this over retirement, Plan B. Marlow and Janis are taking Plan B and creating amazing wines, a must have is the Plan B 2011 Mourvedre.

Stay On The Juice

Juice Press New York City

A great way to detox and cleanse your body is to do a juice fasting, or juice cleansing. I juice everyday, yet I do at least one day fast a week, only fresh juice that I make myself so I know what is going in. The longer you’re juice fasting, the deeper the cleanse becomes, you can do three to five days before or after the holidays. What happens is, the toxins that could be endogenous to the cells release into the blood stream, move through to the liver, and are released in normal waste functions. In longer cleanses, other waste gasses throughout the body look for the easiest means out, through bowel movements, urine, farts, belches, tears… Inflammation throughout the body is the build up of waste and causes pain and will lead to illness.
If you don’t have a juicer, you can go to many places to buy fresh juice, New York has a great place called Juice Press they have over 20 locations in New York and they ship everywhere in the USA. Everyday I am in NYC I go to Juice Press for a Mother Earth and a Volcano, a great way to stay on the juice when your traveling.
