Very smooth Cabernet.

I'd say you'll have a hard time getting alcohol or getting into bars if you're not 21. Sorry.

Let me know if you have other questions. I haven't talked to you much on the site, but consider yourself with a standing option of getting together for coffee or food or something, if you're interested in meeting a somewhat familiar face. No problem if you can't or don't want to.

And Diemen - YAY! Definitely let me know when you'll be back in Seattle. Would be cool to try and get together!
We are still looking for cheap places to stay. Since we have a car we are relatively mobile, but it shouldn't be too far from the city either.
The Jazz Alley sounds great, but entry is $30. We might still go there, but we will also check for some bars with live Jazz music and free entry.
I hope we can at least go into the bars. The one guy is 20 (turns 21 in the first week of January) but the rest of us is older. Maybe we will at least get in and have a nice time. Here in Montana it's even a crime if you drink in the presence of minors. Hopefully there it's less harsh.

I don't know exactly how our schedule will look like in Seattle. We are thinking of going to the aquarium on Thursday and to the air and space museum probably on Friday. In between and on Saturday we are going to explore the city, visit the first Starbucks (were you the one working for Starbucks, by the way?) and do whatever else there is to do.
I would love to meet with you sometime, though I can't say when would be best fitting. But I could PM you my cell phone number and we could try and set up a time somewhat spontaneously when I know more.

Ooh, you know what I just thought of? There's a bar in Pioneer Square that has a sign in the window that says "minors welcome until 10", and I know they have live music - usually jazz and/or blues, I think. Can't think of the name of it off the top of my head.

I'm the Starbucks gal - I work at the head office, which is south of downtown. Shoot me a PM, and if we can figure something out then great. If not, then oh well.

I will try, and if nothing works out I will let you know.

The bar sounds very interesting. I guess we might just go there and check the places around there. Thank you once again.

I find the more the reserve or hand picked grapes the wine tastes better.

You can search tasting notes of your wines at:

Welcome to CellarTracker!

People put their entire cellars there and usually if you have a wine that isn't too obscure you can find other people's thoughts on it as well.

So I just had a little vodka (Stoli), and am now completely stuffed up. Runny nose and everything. I figured I have a wine allergy, as I will get stuffed up when I drink more than a small glass of red wine ... or sometimes even any wine, including champagne.

So now I just had about two shots of vodka, and am blowing my nose every three minutes. Scotch doesn't seem to bring this out in me. I've heard of red wine allergies, but this is ridiculous.

Unacceptable. I AM NOT HAPPY.

Where was the wine from ?

My wife doesn't have an issue with most California Reds, but French and Italian give her the same reaction

Oh, I have no idea. It wasn't anything fancy. Sometimes I can have a little with no problem at all. Other times I take two sips of vodka, and I have sneezing fits - like last night.

It's seriously annoying.

Oh, I misunderstood, I thought you had the sneezing fits after the red wine.

Never heard of a vodka allergy, maybe it was something you were eating or where you were ? Or what you mixed it with ?

Or maybe someone around you had been near a cat ?

When I have unexplained allergies I ask the kids if they've been in someone's house who owns a cat recently, and usually they have !

Oh, I have a cat and am allergic - but I take drugs for that and can be around the cat day in and day out with no issue.

Maybe a combination of the alcohol and the claritin, or alcohol and cat dander sometimes makes my nose go goofy.

See, now a year ago at Thanksgiving, I drank a few glasses of champagne, and I was stuffed up for hours.

Tonight? A few glasses of champagne and am completely fine.







I'll shut up now.

I brought along some wine for Thanksgiving dinner here at my sister's. The first I'd never tasted before but saw a great review at Wine Library TV: Gary Vaynerchuk's daily wine video blog (highly recommended if you're into wine).

2006 Domaine Lucien Albrecht Gewurztraminer Reserve


And one I'd tasted at the winery before and really loved:

2006 Hartford Highwire Zinfandel


Both were fantastic. The Gewurztraminer was loaded with fruit - very peachy with a good spicy, gingery finish. The Zin was a big boy...loads of dark fruit, but not too jammy, with nice solid structure and pepper to balance it all out.

Yum.

chivas regal
red wine
white dessert wine
occasionally a premixed, if it's icy cold and the weather is hot.
recently, jb + coke zero.

chivas all the way though.
