My #WCW is a throwback of my favorite wine, The 2012 Chocolate Block, this wine is something of a cult classic. It is a really rich and seductive wine with spice & exotic herb flavors with sweet berry fruit flavors. #Salud

My #WCW is a 2011 Mano A Mano Tempranillo, it’s full, clean , deep aromas of black fruits and licorice feed into an energetic yet generous palate with moderate richness. This wine is full of flavor which includes black cherry, blackberry, and finished with a pepper spice. #Salud

My #WCW is a 2011 Bodega Norton Reserva Malbec , the palate brings plum and cherry flavors with lively acidity with a touch of black pepper and spice. #Salud!

My #WCW is a 2013 Quinta da Aveleda, this is a steely, tight and crisp wine. Try it out #Salud!

Saxophonist Kirk Whalum visited the Majic studios in March to talk about his new album/DVD “The Gospel According to Jazz Chapter 4”. He suggested that I try the Amarone which an Italian Ripasso and full vine Zin Earthquake.  

My #WCW  is a 2013 Mercer Canyons Chardonnay. This classy wine has a sensuous mix of grape and barrel, steel and butterscotch, with a lively yet lingering finish. Mmmmmm…Salud!

My #WCW is a 2011 Quinta Do Vale Meao Douro. It’s a lush, seductive red, filled to the brim with an arrary of dark fruit and kirsch flavors, accented by plenty of cream and spice notes. Salud!

Yes! It’s that time again and my #WCW is a vintage 2012 Chocolate Block. This South African wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality. Salud!
