This week we cover the question I posed on episode 6 about the cigar shops and tobacconists across the country that have strict policies.
A recap of the issue: Grants Tobacconist had changed their policy whereby customers could enjoy use of the lounge. Prior til August 2nd, there was no minimum required purchase and patrons could enjoy smoking from 5-7 during the weekdays and all day on the weekends. After August 2nd, this changed as did the rules of the lounge. Things looked a little grim and led many of the former patrons to boycott the shop yet I felt it was better to ask why the change occurred and what we as customers could do to help ensure a future of one of the Bay Area’s oldest smoking lounges.
I discovered a very simple answer in talking with Joe, one of the owners of Grants Tobacconist. I think you’ll be delighted.
We’ll discuss Westerly Vineyards 2004 Merlot, Atlas Peak 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon and some basic notes while covering the beauty of these simple, yet elegant wines. Sadly, I haven’t been drinking much in the higher end of things. Yet I intend to remedy that soon as there are a ton of events coming up in the Bay Area that cater to those seeking a taste of the Good Life.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. We recently had a chance to sample wines from the Stepping Stone line by Cornerstone Cellars, Napa Valley California. Tasting notes to follow.
