New to The Cellar Door:
TrainWreck 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
North Coast, California
The 2012 vintage was long, cool and challenging in Sonoma County. Winemakers earned their money by using critical thinking to make harvest decisions on the spot. Rains that would have harmed thin-skinned varietals only “washed the dust” off these hearty, well established vines. The Alexander Valley has become known around the country as a great area to grow Cabernet Sauvignon, the King of red wines. The Dry Creek Valley, while more known for Zinfandel, produces excellent Cabernet as well. The alluvial soils in Alexander Valley and the red, iron laden soils of Dry Creek help to create an exceptional blend. The fruit for this wine was gently destemmed and fermented in tank for 20 days each prior to pressing and placing in small, new and once used American and French oak cooperage. It was aged for over 12 months prior to bottling in November of 2012.
This wine is youthful and exuberant and expresses bright Satsuma plum, clove spice and roasted oak characteristics. In the mouth, it is ripe and medium-full bodied and has loads of blue fruits such as plum, blueberry jam, crushed hazelnuts, vanilla bean and cedar box. It has grainy, soft tannins and is approachable now with slight aeration in the glass or in a decanter. This wine works well with a variety of hearty dishes from Bloody Mary marinated tri-tip roasts and hand-rubbed rack of ribs to Cabot Cheddar Cheese and chocolate mousse pie. It will age well for up to a decade, but feel free to enjoy it this evening with family and friends!
New to The Cellar Door:
Sun King Brewery Pachanga
Mexican Style Lager
As part of their yearly anniversary party, the staff at Sun King vote on a style of beer to be produced for the event. In their seventh year, Sun King staff voted for Mexican-Style Lager, a style that lends itself to day drinking on hot summer afternoons.
To make sure they hit the mark, the production team drank through a collection of already-available Mexican-Style Lagers, discussing what they liked or didn't like about their options. After working those characteristics, they went to work putting a recipe that reflected what they liked the most, and created Pachanga, their seventh anniversary lager.

Today is a perfect energy day for clean up—-this was my daughters first dress—she’s 11 now turning 12 and I’ve held onto this—I’m looking to become more minimalistic—so any ideas what to do with it?!? Make a small pillow or something #help#diy#ideas#minimalism#inspiration#sentimental#whattodo ?!?
🙈 So it's taken me a little while to own up to this, because we all want to believe we're the perfect parent and we would never do THAT thing 🙄 (... insert the most common thing all parents do ever).
Last week during all the tantrums and early mornings I was making breakfast and G was standing on his chair next to the counter. My phone was next to the cutting board 😶
The cutting board was covered with all the cups, plates, food, utensils for breakfast and out of nowhere, the only cup with water in it falls over and spills all over my phone 😱
G: (WITHOUT EVEN MISSING A BEAT) "Mommy? Why did you say f*@k?" 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
Hilarious now! But last week I was mortified. He said it like he was asking me any other question on the planet (👉🏻 also hilarious). Now, I KNOW I'm not the only one who does this, but I also know we all feel like we have to be 100% perfect, 100% of the time. I am not perfect. If I was, I would not be able to laugh at myself for dropping a huge F💣 in front of my child and then hearing his sweet voice repeat it back to me.
If you're brave enough, share a mortifying motherhood moment so we can all see we're not the only ones who do it! ❤️
