Budget Wine Review

by on Jun.19, 2009, under food, wine

Ok, a perennial favorite activity of mine is to monitor my local grocery chain and try to gauge when certain wines that have, shall we say, gotten a little elderly, are placed on the clearance rack and marked down 50% (more if you buy 6). In my mind, it’s a great opportunity to try some wines that you wouldn’t ordinarily get to experience. We had such an event recently and I spent an enormous amount of money, but got an amazing variety of wines. Here are impressions of two I tried recently…

Sterling Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc (California 2006). A poor example of the varietal. Flat, no structure, no discernable fruit. Not really a bargain.

Natura Organic Sauvignon Blanc (Chile 2007). Now we’re talking! This one rivals New Zealand’s Marlborough region for its distinctive grapefruit, grassy, tart flavors. Outstanding at $5.00.

First Post: The Introduction

by on Dec.19, 2008, under Uncategorized

10000 Vinyasas is my attempt to record my progress in yoga (practice and teaching), recipes I find or improvise, ideas on improving and simplifying one’s diet, food and wine in general, gardening and various other ways to ease the way down the slope of declining industrial civilization, which is assumed on this blog and not discussed. (If you’d like to explore the whys and wherefores of this, head on over to the Edge of Chaos, listed in the blogroll).

With food,my influences are Michael Pollan (The Omivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food) and Gary Taubes (Good Calories, Bad Calories).

In yoga, I’ve been studying Ashtanga, although I’ve practiced Anusara and practice Power Yoga several times a week.
