HAVE YOU EVER said to yourselves : " I am in a Cleveland Park
State-Of-Mind " ?!?

DRIVING to work I often flip into a Cleveland Park Washington D.C.,
Northwest, 20008 " Sate-Of-Mind " , and it always makes me happy and smile
as I have / we all have so many things to celebrate , remember, be so
happy for, and to look forward, too, here in Cleveland Park. Especially on
a drop-dead gorgeous day, with a nice breeze, too. Wow. I walked through my
garden out back earlier before breakfast to get my batteries charges and '
rarin'-t-go ', and that really did the trick for me. There is so much lush
green everywhere, and all our Japanese water irises and our Mustard-yellow
Yarrow, our Bee-Balm, our white Goose-Neck flowers, our Coriopsis
soon-shouting-yelling-yellows-bright-and-strong, our deep and matted orange
day lillies with bright yellow centers, our Milkweed for the Monarch
butterflies, our lavender butterfly bushes, our Coneflowers, Black-Eyed
Susans, and more are blooming, getting close to, thinking strongly about
it. Good thing I had some delicious red Lambrusco to drink last night.....

LIKE THE ' Piria ' PALTRINIERI , $14.99, 11.5% alcohol by volume,
Lambrusco Di Sorbara, ( with 70% Lambrusco Sorbara, 30% Lambrusco Salamino,
for more info go to : www.rwkimports.com, Azienda Agricola Paltrinieri
Gianfranco s.s. Sorbara, made by Alberto Paltrinieri that came to pour it
here months ago with his daughter, what a great tasting that was! ) to
drink while I grilled and ' surveyed and admired ' my domaine as I like to
say with both a smile and a smirk!

IT RAINED BUCKETS last night and cleansed everything.I loved looking out at
how everything was so squeaky-wet and where there was sheets of rain and
water going this way and that , there was all of a sudden bright sunshine,
no clouds, and everything drying as drips dropped constantly all over the
place : what a change, what a display of Nature at it's finest. I loved it.

and was too bothered by the heat to go in search of any! Argh!!!! But
tonight it is a different story ... stay-tuned ...

JUST HAPPENING : Trying Brunello DONATELLA Cinnelli Colombini   : "  Sorry
Violante missed you yesterday in the store but glad I saved you a taste of
this amazing 2010 Brunello the best since 1997. Check out the write up on
this amazing all female operated winery in this months wine spectator."
THANKS CHRIS FOR COMING  by again today with two of the five wines, I loved
both including the Riserva 2008 that I just tried after the 2010 : both are
memorable from the first whiff , loved them world-class, really classic,
flavorful, froward in every sense yet with a certain backwards thrust going
on at the same time, like dragging one's feet ever so as one advances, so
both motions at play and resulting in an even finer wine and series of
taste sensations as the wine expands and contracts, retracts, redirects,
refocused, and continues to change and grow and evolve. I loved this.

have pics that I will post for you all really soon here and on our web page
and on Facebook, too : with tweeting them to follow soon! So much trabajo a
faire : English, Spanish and French - and Italian with the wine at play
here! Love it. Stay-tuned for more. Wines to arrive in late June here.

Bay and recommends it, she lit up with a beautiful smile when she saw it on
our shelves here when she and Chris came by one evening perhaps a week or
so ago. Cheers, Thanks for the ' heads-up ' Mercedes!

Chicago, Illinois is open here for tasting and sampling. Ask us and we will
pour you some and you can decide for yourselves, with 46.5% alcohol by
volume. Cheers!

WINE From Chris & Tony :

1) Reserva 2011 Sauvignon Blanc from CASA SILVA in Chile's Colchagua
Valley, On Special for $9.99 a bottle, a deep discount, is still drinking
beautifully. I sampled it with Sal and liked how distinct, flavorful,
balanced and tasty it still is and think it will provide great, immediate
enjoyment now as the temperatures soar into the nineties. I highly
recommend it!

2)  2013 Rueda Soanish dry white from HONORO VERA from the Rueda
region, On Special for $9.99 now : I liked the acidity and the freshness,
the brightness and how lively it is, a delight with a meal, any summer
meal, even outside in this heat that is mounting, lovely : with a ' sci-fi
label that will appeal to many. I did not like the label, but did like the
wine! Cheers!

3) Blanc de Cabernet Sauvignon from ALBASTRELE and made in Moldova, a
2012, $11.99, 13% alcohol by volume, I love the lusher, fuller, more ripe
and evolved and bright flavors, and thought it was marvelous, a treat :
lovely to sip. I just tried the new vintage and did not think it was either
as tasty or as distinct. Glad to have some of this left. Dmitri came by
last week and tasted me on everything in his bag of treats : a great
tasting, a great showing for the wines of Moldova. What great news. Come
get some white Cabernet Sauvignon and rock out tonight and this week.

4) Green Tea, White Wine and Honey Infused Into ONE come together in
this great warm-weather sparkler called TEAVINE  that is so refreshing and
slightly carbonated, $13.49 a bottle for the 750ml bottle, with 6.5%
alcohol by volume. It is a regular favorite here, made by James that grew
up here in Cleveland Park. Cheers!

5) Blanco Spanish Dry White, Vino De La Tierra De Castilla, 2012, On
Special, the last eight cases, for $.99 a bottle. You have all loved it and
the last of it is now back here by popular demand. Come get some while we
still have it. Cheers!

6) Monastrell/ Mourvedre 2013 made with 100% organic grapes from
Spain, made by HONORO VERA, On Special for $9.99 is so flavorful, balanced,
bright, fleshy and forward, and at this price with a chill of 30-minutes,
what a wonderful wine,dry red to enjoy now in this heat! Si! Si! Si! Si!

7) Verdelho 2012 dry white from California's Paso Robles region and
made by KENNETH VOLK Vineyard ( and tasted here this past weekend by John
Morrison ) is multi-layered, really lovely in thick skins that shed and
reveal so much depth with honey overtones, citrus and such mouth-grip-feel,
it was perhaps the best-selling here this past Saturday afternoon, everyone
loved it!

8) Languedoc 2012 Frech dry red blend from the DOMAINE Du PAS DE
L'ESCALETTE, $20.99, with 13.5% alcohol by volume, made by  Julien Zernotte
& Delphine Rousseau, really classic, balanced, a fine dry
medium-bodied-to-lighter dry, pepper and spice and earthy-flavored red to
chill 30 minutes and serve with whatever you grill or season or marinate
for awhile before serving. Cheers! Go to : www.pasdelescalette.com for more
info on this tasty red that you may enjoy thoroughly now with a meal. Sante
a tous!

8) Txakolina rose secco dry 2014 from GANETA in the Basque country,
$21.99, with 11% alcohol by volume, clean and crisp, lean and yet fluid and
silky, bright and generous enough to make it thoroughly appealing and
really perfect to enjoy even outside with all this heat and humidity ! It
showed beautifully this past Friday when Estebe Salgado the President of
Tradewinds Specialty Imports poured it himself for you all. Nice, really

9) 2011 Lozen Arizona Dry Red Blend of 35% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc,
25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot, made by Tim White , made by
ARIZONA STRONGHOLD Vineyards in Camp Verde, Arizona: a wine of elegance,
very subtle and refined flavors that are perfect for this hotter weather of
ours now. Lovely, a really special treat that I highly recommend. Cheers!

Dan errasa of Wiliam Harrison Imports brought by some interesting Frenc Loire Valley wines as well as some Bordeaux for me to try. Cheers, thanks Dan, merci Dan!
