Pairing Wine With My Life's Adventure

REINVENTION: Quit my job in IT, sold my house and moved from Cal to NYC for sommelier classes. GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY: Moved to Napa and worked in a vineyard making wine. TRAVEL: Through France and Italy on a wine scavenger hunt. Sto cambiando la mia vita e desidero imparare circa vino. Je change ma vie et je veux me renseigner sur le vin. TRY TO GET SERIOUS: Living in New York for 4 years and working as a Sommelier. NEW GOALS: Do my own thing, find love, speak Spanish, live wine.

It's the busy season at my restaurant and yesterday was a zoo. VIPs and all sorts of people coming in from every direction. Pairings up the wazoo and I had to be in all places at once. We held it together, even when people couldn't decide what they wanted... tasting super slow. Drink already.

Blythe from Naughty Kitchen came to eat and loved everything. She's fun. Brian Grazer and Kofi Annan didn't drink. From my perspective things are looking up in our economy.

After a half bottle of Corton Charlamagne, a guest had a Lagavulin 16 neat and asked about Laphroaig and if they go beyond the 10-year. Lagavulin has a 21, 25 and a 30-year. Laphroaig has 15, 18, 25, 27, 30 and 40-year. Both are Islay... more later gotta go to work.
