Wine Buff – stemware polishing towel

In the second half I’ll be talking to Andrew Lazorchak from Soiree Home about some of their cool wine and drink related products.  I recently received a cool wine stemware drying towel imprinted with Napa and Sonoma wine region maps called “Wine Buff!”  That’s just one of the many products you’ll find at Napa based SoireeHome.com

Wine Buff, the all new custom blended microfiber towel that will sparkle your wine glasses and knowledge of wine. a great product for spot-free glassware that features maps of Napa Valley and Sonoma. each map has over 250 wineries and vineyards, as well as AVA (american viticultural areas) regions, and sommelier-written notes on the growing region.  An awesome souvenir or gift for any wine-lover.

Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
2014 Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Alexander Valley wine with medium body, great fruit flavors and polished tannins. Winemaker Kevin Hall added 6% Merlot for structure, a touch of Cabernet Franc for floral notes and Malbec and Petit Verdot for color. There are aromas of dark fruit, blackberry, cherry, cassis, plum, vanilla and a slight cocoa and chocolate note. In the glass there are rich flavors of plum, cherry, cassis, blackberry, spice and chocolate. This is a smooth wine with medium body, nice balance and a long finish.
