A View From The Pourfessional Side

Pourfessional is a name a good friend of mine gave me while working with me in the tasting room one day. So it is fitting that my blog revolves around the tasting room, our visitors and wine of course. For my first posting I have chosen a couple from AZ and their daughter. They are wine club members and big fans of Edward Sellers Wines. It was a perfect day for wine tasting with winds at 40 mph and rain coming down in buckets. I always say wine tasting is an indoor sport, so a little rain can't stop real wine lovers. Little Elle, not old enough to drink, kept herself busy with her matchbox cars and some crackers while mom (Melanie) and dad (Kevin) enjoyed some of our new wines; 2005 Vertigo, a Grenache Blend, and 2005 LeThief, a Syrah Blend. Kevin is a big fan of French wines and has a personal connection to the Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Melanie tells me that when she meet Kevin he only drank French wines. That has changed, Kevin and Melanie are big fans of the Paso Robles Rhone wine surge and great ambassadors of Edward Sellers.

Hey, isn't that the guy who gave me the Saxum Booker Vineyard '05? I love those three!
