Yes!!! The about us page does mention wine. We also have a post category for wine. However, you may notice that we have yet to write a post about wine.
So yesterday I went to lunch with the beautiful Mrs. Jeley at a great local eatery called 5th and Wine. They have fantastic food, and a great wine list (before 6pm all glasses are $5). Their wine list changes frequently, so there is always something new to try.
Yesterday I ordered a glass of Rockus Bockus. The menu said it was a Red Blend from Sonoma, and it was situated in the area that had Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc…so I just sort of assumed it would be a blend with some Bordeaux varietals.
Boy was I pleasantly surprised. While waiting for my sandwich and glass of wine to arrive I decided to look the Rockus Bockus up on my phone. It turns out that this is a wine that has been created by Jeff Bundschu who most people that enjoy California red wines will recognize. The “Bockus” part of the name is a play on the name of the Roman God of Wine, Bacchus.
The wine itself is a blend of Cab Sauv, Zin, Syrah, Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot….very strange blend, but WTF? It Works!!!.
If you get a chance, check it out. I highly recommend it. I am not sure what wine stores you may find it at. But I know you can get it at 5th and Wine.Read More
