I’m so distracted today because it’s the best gift July brings me every year. A new @danielsilvabooks. The 19th in the Gabriel Allon series and I can’t wait for the group text with @timakasenior and @audierose that is about to happen. I don’t need to pull an all nighter but I think it’s going to happen.

We were asked to bring a fine wine for the lunch during this think tank with @areniglobal. I brought @barnettvineyards 2008 Rattlesnake Vineyard, Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. My first introduction to why wine and food go together was a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Texas BBQ. I brought a wine that reflected my personal wine history in a glass and wine made by good people.

If you are you like me you are probably thinking, “Wow! The past six months have flown by. I am beginning to think what the elders say is true. “Time goes faster the older you get.” Remember when you were a kid and it seems like all you wanted to be was older . You wanted to play with the big ...

I keep saying the past year and a half have been the best and worst years of my life. In the continued quest to live up to my mother’s wildest dreams for me I am headed to Bordeaux next week to learn, engage, and talk on fine wine and its future. Areni is a global institute bringing perspective understanding, and action to the future of fine wine. Building a bigger wine table is my work.

Wowsers. The first time I had this sparkling, repeat, sparkling Syrah was when @sipnorthwest poured me a glass last week in Washington state. It’s a Kir Royale in a bottle. It’s bright, refreshing, and mouth quenching. If Jolly Ranchers had a black cherry and blackberry candy this would be it.

When we think of wine writers it would be hard to name the greats without including Julia Coney (@juliaconey). Julia is a pioneer, a mentor, a a travelling savant and all around bawse (you better ask about Ms. Julia)! So excited about honoring her at Roses & Rosè Brunch during The Black Wine Experience during Essence Fest. Show your love for her and the other honorees ♥️ at www.theblackwoneexperience.com.

Walking out of Uruguay with more knowledge than when I arrived, more respect for the winemakers, their families, & staff. All the feels for South America.

“I’m in love under new [Tannat] management.” I always enjoy relating wine to music.

Years ago there was a hit R&B song called “Love Under New Management” by Miki Howard [Look it up]. It was everything you want in a good R&B song: riffs, harmony, background vocals, and soul.


@bodegamarichal Tannat has that same feeling. The range starts great and then there is that crescendo where it gut punches you, leaves you breathless, and wanting for more.


Now it’s time to figure out how to drink more Tannat when I’m home and to literally tell everyone I know why should be drinking more Tannat.



*In other news Uruguay has a Tannat and lamb festival everyone and now I need my Uruguayan family to keep me posted on the 2020 event because I’m definitely coming back.*

I came to Uruguay not really knowing what to expect wine wise and then I visited @pisanowines and they have a Sparkling Tannat made in the champagne method.

This is why I am humbled and honored every time I visit a wine region. I want my followers to not only drink better but to understand the hard work and passion it takes to be in this industry. @ Progreso, Canelones, Uruguay
