WineRelease.com's November 15, 2015 Monthly Newsletter.

Greetings from WineRelease.com, now 2,115 winery listings strong.

Driving up Highway 29 on Friday afternoon I am reminded of how much I enjoy the smell of fermentation in the air.

My every other month wine group got together at Alfred's steakhouse in San Francisco and we were to bring a big Cabernet and taste blind, so I brought a 2011 Herb Lamb Napa Valley Cabernet and it went over very well with the group. It had a great dark fruit nose with classic Napa Cabernet flavors. It opened up and got better over 2 hours.

Last weekend we went up to Grass Valley to visit my in-laws. We went to Nevada City to a great sushi place (Sushi in the Raw) but couldn't get reservations so we put our name in and walked around town and walked into the (Szabo Vineyards) tasting room. Alex Szabo, the owner, tasted us through their wines along with a tasty cheese plate and we had a great time. He produces great Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah wines. If you are up there, definitely stop by. We never got into Sushi in the Raw. We learned that if you don't have reservations then you need to be there before they open at 5 and when they do open, get your name on the list. Arriving at 5:30 didn't cut it.


Alex Szabo, owner Szabo Vineyards.
