Trader Joes Reserve Carneros Chardonnay 2019 Review
"Then from cheap wine finder.com with a wine review today from Trader Joe's they actually have some interesting wines right now. There is a deadline blood or they were supposed to be a wine glass. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley and covid-19 is kind of shut down restaurants sales and you know, there's the fires out there are doing anybody any favors right now, but that's where we're at. And so they're starting to see and Trader Joe's has a bunch of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This isn't one of them. This is let me grab the bottle so I get it right. It's the Trader Joe's Reserve Chardonnay canero. Snap Valley 2019 lot 204. Keep in mind the 204 cuz there's also a 205 lot 2:05 and I believe that is a different producer Jim. All together. These are small production lines from a high-end growing area. This is a crime chardonnay pinot noir grow name is Richard name the 2019. So too young why not drink and now one but that's fine. Drinking now lines are usually made simply let those grapes shine through, you know, you're you know in not a lot of age and not a lot of this has some but not a lot and it just lets the grapes be nice and juicy and bright and when you have upscale groin area with expensive types with high-end Vineyards will have a young lion that what's the grapes shine through was a very very nice thing. Canaris is half and Sonoma happened. Napa Valley funny thing I'm going to label if it's in the Napa Valley where The Vineyards are that will be on the label. If it's on the snow my side to the second Narrows, you know, I guess that's being Snappy or something to take a sip. It's pretty good stuff. Nick an arrow Southern border even though it's Inland is the San Pablo Bay which is the northern part of the San Francisco Bay which has brings very cold cold pack Waters all the way Inland and you get the breeze as you get your basically on the coast, even though you're Inland and so it's kind of a freak of nature in the truest sense that it makes good wine that The back label said it was made by a good Winery and I couldn't really find an avid Winery but there isn't in the same town. They're from there's an avid Vineyards. Who do I end up, you know the wire in the exact same city, so it might be a part of that and they're high-end producer and I kind of think this wine is from a high-end booster. They bought the grace we can narrow so they made it wherever in Sonoma Coast region because the bottles a heavy bottle when you get these $10.99 off but usually a lightweight Echo bottle so it's less glass and cheaper to transport since it's a lighter weight wage actually has a real Court which you know for it's a line and should have I keep my quirks, but I have a whole bunch of them and it's so rare. It's always these kompas. Some of these plastic things or I don't know that's why I'm you know, you know, you should put screw Tops on if you're going to use these crappy things just put screw times, but this one actually has a very decent quarterback, but young wine one you wouldn't age so sign up like thick cork but it's way better than ninety-nine ninety-nine and Trader Joe's chardonnays normally have so it's need to be ironed grapes from a producer isn't really always that into making value-priced wines. It seems they don't tell you much about these things. You have to guess on what you get off, but that's what I'm guessing. It's from caneros. It tastes really good. It's a young one. Like I said the Young Lions are style. That's another thing and canaris. They don't make you online. This is Page nineteen if they just went in 2018 and made the line little more complicated a little bit longer and Barrel they can sell it for twenty twenty five dollars. You know, why solo / 999 that's one of the things at Trader Joe's Is actually kind of cool for Trader Joe's will give you a drink at now young wine with really upscale grapes. You don't really get that everywhere and that's kind of one of those when they really good things about about you know, people say, oh it's cheap wine iron. You got it all wrong you getting these unique wines up. You can't always get everywhere. So yeah keep that in mind if you if you off at the 205 lot 205 is in your store will like this isn't going to tell you everything this is for the lot 204 but it's really good. If you're into Chardon eight by it off. It's it's plenty good. It's some it's a taste of Carneros grapes that you're not going to get at this price bed. So there you go. So keep it cheap.

How the North Bay Became 'Wine Country'
"To answer Michael's question about when wine country got start and how it became. So popular, we brought in reporter Christopher Beale Hey Christopher Hay alluvia. So let's start with when wine grapes were first planted in the North Bay. When was that all the way back in eighteen twenty three the Spanish created a mission in Sonoma's. It's the first place where grapes were intentionally planted in wine country but the wine made from these grapes was Sacramento Kinda like alcoholic. Grape juice used in church, not what we would recognize as wine, and then in eighteen thirty s some of the early European settlers in the NAPA sonoma valleys would have grown some basic wine grapes as well. Now, when does the wine country that we think of today start to take shape for the sake of the story let's start in eighteen forty California is ten years from entering the Union and this guy named Charles Krug arrives in San Francisco. Crew was a German after the revolutions of eighteen, forty eight in Europe the comes into San Francisco. It was the editor of a German language newspaper in San Francisco. That's Jim Lapsley he managed agricultural continuing education at UC Davis for more than thirty years with focus on wine-making. Now, after a few years in San Francisco Charles Krug gets married and ended up as a dowry getting quite a bit of land. This is the area just North of Santa Lena where the Charles Krug winery is located considered. It'd be the first commercial winery in Napa Valley. The wine country story is really one about marketing and innovation, and this Guy Charles crew gets credit for a lot of the early innovation and wine country including being the first to use a cider press, which is kind of like a slotted barrel to press wine grapes before that grapes were generally crushed by people's feet. When California entered the union, it was a place where we could grow grapes because the climate was quite similar to the southern Mediterranean. It was dry during the summer it had wet winters and differ grew very well here in California. For, is a species of grapevine. It's used to make wine after the early success of pioneers like Cruyff people began to plant grapes and produce more wind and the NAPA and sonoma valleys. But this was still considered low quality table wine and it continued to represent only a fraction of the US market mainly because it was still cheaper for east coast consumers to import wine. From Europe by boat, then from California by train. But that all changed in eighteen, seventy five, the US government stepped in and increase the tax on imported European wines to twenty cents a gallon which leveled the financial playing field for California's wine producers, and as a result, the wines dig it imported from Europe can be much more expensive wines and oak wine that was everyday drinking. That became the from California. Now. It wasn't a linear march from this moment today. The wind industry suffered a few major setbacks over the years but one way or another managed to survive them. Here's a few of the important ones I wine country was almost destroyed by bugs in the eighteen seventies. This is a microscopic bug that eats the roots of wine grapes. It's related to an eighth fit in it's called. PHILOXENIA. And when it arrived in wine country, it destroyed the vineyards to kill the vineyards and the only way could really come up with a solution was to plant on grafted vines the bottom, the rootstock would be a native variety and then on top graft with Vida's Benifica.

That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need.

Everybody I'm perched atop a billboard giving me bird's eye view of turns one and two turns that are among the fastest in all of NASCAR approach speeds into the fourteen degree banking over two hundred miles an hour. Not only are they fast. The are wide seventy feet to be exact and the drivers appreciate the luxury of choosing a variety of lines through the corners. Now the sun is out today the track will be a bit slicker than yesterday during happy. Our I'll be here to cover all the slight slip and slide and at turns one and two of the California speedway at the exit to turn to thirty one hundred feet of open asphalt the back straightaway before they come to the attention of turn three manning turn three for us here at Mr Radio this afternoon for Portland. Oregon Paul Bartholomew Moody the Back Straightaway Measuring Twenty five hundred repeat length in the seventy feet wide giving these western cab drivers multiple lanes to choose from to make pass before tangling with the fourteen degrees banking which makes up turns three and four once in the corner bottom lines the preferred line. However if you're caught on the outside there's ample racing room just a couple of taps on the brake pedal set the car? If you're not fighting that Arrow push you get right back into the gas pedal is there's a lot of runoff room out of turn four. Yesterday we saw two cars find the turn four wall today. We'll sit back and see what happens.

"Driver. Kurt Busch made it a front row. Sweep for the kitty core on Friday. He'll start on the outside pole today. He's climbed all the way to fourth in the point standings and after winning his first career Winston Cup race at Bristol earlier. This season. Steve's definitely ought role right now he's with our Winston Kelly of Charlotte North Carolina Day. They've been extraordinarily fairly consistent all year. Long another good qualifying effort just four one thousands of a second off the bud pole but I know what you're concentrating on is the race package. How was it yesterday in practice? Discard Bush. They seem to be real good clouds. were out and it was a bit cool. Now we've got Sunny California sunshine so it's GonNa Change Your set up a little bit. I hope we made it adjustable enough. We're GONNA try to stay in that clean air and make sure that the rubbermaid emblem on the hood stays up front. That's the goal when we saw yesterday afternoon or yesterday morning you commented that you hoped it stayed cool. Did you make a lot of changes ages. This morning. We made some changes yesterday and happy hour. Just try them out. Obviously the track conditions were today. So we're just trying to see and that's what we did at Bristol when we're able to come away with a successful accessible car. There was to try things that wouldn't normally work for that condition but my work later on in Bristol changed around on Race Day morning. So hopefully we'll be able to roll the dice the same way speaking Bristol. Oh he admitted that he didn't really expect to win his first race there but he wouldn't be at all surprised from win number to come today here at California the leader of the grave beared contingent. Today's event Dale Jarrett Jarrett qualified in the third position. He has been since last July New Hampshire since he's gone to victory lane on a Nascar Winston Cup racing. The season has got off kind of slow for the UPS. Es Four team see what he thinks about his chances here today Tony Zuhdi of Charlotte North Carolina is with Dj. It's his best qualifying effort of two thousand and two. This track is known. One is a horse power track but everywhere. We've gone this year. We've heard that dreaded word Aero Push how important is it to stay up front in the clean air here this afternoon. I think it's very important and I think if you look at this racetrack and we talk about it. There's two things that you have to have and that's a good aero package and you had a lot of horsepower and hopefully we've got that but Standing Dan Clean Air will be very very important. Today now your team with Robert. Yates Motors are known for a tunnel horsepower. But everybody knows the more power the less gas mileage you get is s something you worked on while we've tried to work hard obviously since Texas too. But we're going to try to be smart about that today. We think that we can get to the fifty lap mark. which is what you need to do? In case this would go green and we can make it in four stops well. He is amongst all the young guys but he's hoping to have a good run. Today is best career finish at California's Fifth Dale Jarrett in the UPS. Ford will roll off. Third Michael Waltrip starts the NAPA auto parts Chevrolet six today in his sponsors race with the way the cars have run of the bigger tracks. This season he's gotta be feeling pretty good today. Jim Phillips. Let's let's talk to Michael Walter starting in the top five today. Okay and aero package is one of the best in the business. Could that make a difference for you today. Well our cars are real good on the big shots where you don't have to have a whole lot of downforce. He said these tracks where you need a real balanced downforce car. We seem to be dow junior gets on top of it but we haven't been able to yet with our NAPA car. We're working real hard to learn what he knows and to to borrow some knowledge from his team and try to give ourselves an opportunity to be competitive at attract like like we. We are here today at California. Where aerodynamics is a big backer today I know you WanNa win Other than the restrictor plate race. or where do you have to be you now. Say Fifty fifty or forty laps. You just have to show all day long that you've got fast enough car to lead the race you gotta be right up Bryant and you had to fall back you gotta be able to make your move toward the front and and then that proves your cars fast enough and then you know it might come down to take into tires tires. Works worked well yesterday. You want that track position late in the race but just having tracked position isn't enough you. You have to show that your car is fast enough to keep at once you once you get it. That's Mike Walter. Rusty Rusty Wallace's offending winner of the NAPA auto parts. Five hundred starts today in the tenth. transposition Tony with him. Well Rusty Wallace has one of his best cars. Here mad. Max How can you make it two in a row. I have got a really good car. It's kind of a lot of horsepower bronner's hood and it's been a real strong and practice in the same car had last year. I hit really. There doesn't mean a lot but it's been completely rebuilt changed around and it's been running strong while he was nineteen and a happy hour but seemed to get better on. The long runs Rusty Wallace qualified tenth for today's Napa Auto Parts. Five hundred coming off a win last weekend at Talladega Dale Earnhardt Jr. ten years now cracked the top five in the points. He's talking like a man who has some plans to make a run for the championship today. He's going to be a factor today to as well too. Yeah Yeah we'll be gotTA LOOK APP for this event Coming back he has a win here. The Nascar Busch series came several years ago and has had a couple of top five finishes in Winston Cup competition.

Kurt Busch was brought up to the Winston Cup ranks before you were take acres back to that day and and how you came to deal with well really. I was okay with that because Kurt didn't really have a future set. You know where he was going to go and what had happened is Really didn't have any plans to how many sponsors for the truck series and there's opening in the Winston Cup series so they elected to do that. We were in a long term contract reckless grainger so I was kind of bound by a contract and really couldn't go anywhere. Do anything different. Today's your First Cup start. What is your strategy strategies? He's this I want to get a top twenty finish. I'm going to try and stay on the lead lap today Like to finish in the top twenty.

"Here Marin Radio Presents Nascar today in Sunny Southern California hosts the Nascar Winston Cup series today the contest of speed and bit road decision. Making hello again. I'm joe more along with Dave Moody. Today who's pinch hitting for Barney Hall taking this weekend off. Welcome to our radios live coverage of the NAPA auto parts. It's five hundred. The Winston Cup series has been racing here at the California speedway for five years. Now it seems as facility gets better each year and larger and larger crowds are coming out out to see NASCAR racing today. Sellout crowd over ninety two thousand of the grandstands not counting a packed infield here to see the NAPA five hundred. This is a two mile. Trial will racetrack Dave Moody but a lot of the attention. Racier is focused on pit road while many many times here both in Winston Cup competition and on the Nascar Busch series. We've seen the final collapsed. Come down to a question of fuel. Mileage Pin strategy teams will be working the calculators all day long try to figure out what the proper setup is not necessarily spending running all day at the front of the pack. Either we've seen drivers work in the middle of the back of the pack for most of the day. Try to conserve few mileage. Make the most of the draft and then come on late and get those few extra laps in the gas tank that takes to go all the way to the finish and sometimes steal a win a lot of times. The gambling comes into play getting close to the end of a race here to determine who's going to win and and sometimes we do see surprise. Winter's here today's races also a neat little matchup of the youth versus veterans in Nascar Winston Cup racing. We have two rookies in the first four positions nations and six drivers in the top ten under thirty years of age. Ryan Newman and Kurt. Busch Jimmie Johnson. They've all made a very strong case for the twentysomethings. If you will hear this weekend but I also don't think is like Dale. Jared and Rusty Wallace are exactly ready for the home yet. Either with all due respect to the young bucks that blew away Mike. Skinner's track record here on Friday. It takes more than bravery at a heavy foot to succeed here on Sundays. More than anything else. This track rewards patience and consistency and a cool head and those are not necessarily trait. H You find in the youngsters but a great mix here today of youth and experience should make for very interesting. Five hundred mile veteran racers have won this race before the previous five years. Jeff Gordon Jordan. Did it twice. Mark Martin. And Ninety eight Jeremy Mayfield the winner here. In two thousand and Rusty Wallace the defending winner of the NAPA auto parts five hundred back at the California Cornea speedway on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Closing in on the start of the NAPA auto parts five hundred this race track showed it was going to be very fast this weekend. Pole qualifying on Friday when four drivers set you track record in qualifying for today's race fastest of all of them. Ryan Newman scored his second career. Bud Pole for this event. Jim Phillips of Newport Tennessee is standing by with our repulse center and he talks about one hundred eighty seven point four three two miles per hour. The Bud Pole. Woody speak first of the year second of your career Ryan that was one lap. What's IT GONNA take whatever circa two hundred for you today? A whole lot of variables racecar today all mobile one Ford Taurus and I got good engine and obviously we showed that in qualifying. We've got one that's GonNa live all day You know we. We've been pretty conservative on it. We've been pretty decent year and You know just not running you are not getting a lot of miles on it to be conservative to it and hopefully that'll pay off and you know we can have a good race lasts. Four finishes have not been very good mess. It's been thirty seven. So is it hard to stay focused. When having bad luck I mean you were running? Good last week had bad luck. It's just hard for me to focus as it. Is everybody else team together. We pull each joe and everybody together and that's important that's good teamwork and nothing. We bounced back and qualified on the pole. Here California as exactly right. You'll get one for the years out the rookie Ryan Newman Sophomore.

match up to the setup on his car so four tires no adjustments Dale Earnhardt however now let's get down to Winston Kelly nobody on the midsection of pit road is bobby the bodies I will raise the bar but forty tires on it also Kyle petty is in Downey are a bit late he's gotta get four tires and fuel the Jeffries oh died forced little bit before water that car and cooling down on that they are changing tires on his car as he did not make up a lot of ground that set which track might change a little bit of cloud cover moved over the speedway here for the last few minutes kind of we'll certainly cool the racetrack now just a little bit but I it could be a factor and it might not but it has we do have some clouds over the racetrack quite a few drivers that are allowed more down our on pit road right now Dale Jarrett's one of those Joe Nemechek is in burqas and Steve Park Ricky Rudd Mark Martin is on pit road take Muss Grave Kenny schrader and this would be a stop coming under the caution flag good has come out to allow one of the safety vehicles to exit the racetrack again four hundred seven complete ninety-three to go from the Martinsville speedway this Marin Radio Back Martinsville under the caution the top three we stay on the speedway the rest of the seven cars on the lead lap choose to pit it's Bobby Body Jeff Gordon Kenny Wallace who are the top three Dale Earnhardt Mike Skinner Geoffrey Bodine and Kyle petty and through seventh now on fresher tyres couple of updates from pit road I Marty Schneider Call Dale Earnhardt sits in fourth and we talked to Kevin Ham awhile ago about the car but now let's talk about the driver earnhardt had a stomach virus last night it didn't bother them too bad the first of the race but Housi- fill and now Kevin is he's been a little bit sick today and it's filer longer we run tacklers last year he said he wasn't sure if he's GonNa make way or not but I think it'd be ruins good car works good he'll be all right it's amazing how the it can be a great medicine but Dale earnhardt not feeling well he sort of got a fever he's asking for water and as much as can get it every pitstop they make their dousing with water and he's drinking water water so Dylan Mark a little bit under the weather but he's going to try to make any currently as informed and if he feels like he's got a chance to win I think you'll see earnhardt stay in that car and there's not much doubt in my mind about that the getting the indication one lap and we go back to green which to Kelly is in the championship leaders pit Dale Jarrett Winston remarkable rally from thirty eighth after a cut tire remelted back he's in his way on up to the front of the packs of Willie taught alone but it has been a remarkable ruin is they were all the way back far back in the twenties almost three laps down one point so dj up in night so one of the tracks that they were really concerned about as far as the championship run because Martinsville as we said you can get in trouble here become a part of somebody else's trouble and if they can come out of here with the top ten finishes afternoon I think they'll be fairly happy with pace car behind the pit wall come down to the green flag this time bobby the body takes the green Jeff Berg would be the first car now on the inside a latte machine riding in the number two spot they get added back in turn number two Jeff Gordon trying to hang with the leader door trying to work the outside lane that's the path that has cut by Bobby Labonte trying to get by the Jeff Burton Car

out at lap one forty-seven Brett Bodine's car is being pushed through the wall or we'll be going behind the wall so Brett's go the problem on that machine will follow up on that in just a moment and Tony Stewart likely apparently is going to have to have a wrecker he is climbing out of the car to come out and pulled his machine back into the hits so Tony Stewart out of the event here at Laptop or

"You may have heard over dream board or a vision. Board LIKE OUR OPRAH CALLS IT. I remember one of the things that stood out in my dream board was having the quality of light to do the things that I love. I had to board one for the things wanted to accomplish in another dream board with my hobby by the way he did. He's individual board to. Have you ever done a dream? Ward? I strongly suggest you do one. I recommend you do it and keep it in the place. You always see like Walt Disney said if you can dream it you can do it and I know that you can do it this. Oh searching was not done overnight one thing that was crystal clear from our dream boards back in two thousand twelve is that we both wanted a career change that was like crystal clear a better quality of life into grow closer as a couple more we can going to our mission to more cloudy we had on what our next move should be. You see a having working sixty plus hours a week no job for like ten years while Coke. I would be up at five. Am and on. Long days. I will be working from five. Am To ten PM while at GE. I gave it my all while to say the least I was tired physically and mentally. Do you also feel like you're giving your all at work in working over sixty plus hours and you don't feel accomplished. Well that was me. I wanted something different and that was my sign that I needed a change. The moment you being excited on your daily career live that issue. Cue that you need to give it. I knew this was me. I was scared of the corporate world since that is what I had been doing for over a decade. I was excited at the same time to start something new on the other hand. My hubby who was also my boyfriend back then was not happening is day to day ended on a path. He wanted to work for practice. That was solely focused on root canal treatment after putting twenty plus years of school dental school and so much effort. He should disturb what he desired. We explored Maryland where my Spanish from then Denver Colorado since we both love the outdoors. Lastly we went back to the dream board in waited on an opportunity while still on search mode so go back to that. Dream Board and listen to your gut that inner voice that he said. Super Low volume. Turn it up because that is your q tip number to manifest your dreams. It's okay to let go. I kept telling that to myself so many times. The first thing that had to do is let go of corporate life. This honestly felt like a break-up actually like at ten year corporate breakup. Have you ask yourself how you will feel how you will feel that day are no longer part of Corporate America? How you feel the day you decided to pursue your dreams. Are you like me that you devoted all your energy love and loyalty to your corporate career? This was me exactly. I'M NOT JOKING. I fell in love with GE and Coca Cola. Why I there one of the most incredible companies to work for and the one I remember reading about him my NBA Business Case Studies and marketing. Books I even remember ordering the GE annual reports ridden by the board of directors. So that I can understand their train of thought..
