As wine connoisseurship evolves, I look toward developing ways to express the aspects of wine I love the most. I recognize that wine is a product of nature and science; my goal is as natural as can be: to help make the connection between joy of taste and the bountiful pleasures of life.”

Just like LL Cool J minus the 6 pack and the gold

Last week, I traveled to California to begin what im now calling a proxy winemaking project. We have decided to give a go at creating a series our own private label wines to be served exclusively at fifth group restaurants. Former Bonny Doon winemaker Alison Crowe, her assistant and I spent some time deliberating over samples of various finished wines and tank samples and have come up with some pretty cool stuff. As the Atlanta police department says “BOLOY” which for those of you who don’t know police parlance and or justice system acronyms, means “ be on the look out yawl” I throw the “ yawl” part in just to make certain we are regionally correct so,…go ahead, dig out that old cassette, find a player and pop in the track cuz, “we going back to cali, cali , cali …weze going back to cali, cali, cali” more details coming soon!

Cool stuff. Any hints on varietals, blends, styles, AVAs?
