With thanks to Howard Bernstein in Des Moines for his kind words: “For the Cab. Sauv. lovers out there, Smith Madrone’s 2005 Spring Mountain (Cal.) Cabernet is a brawny lad that’s drinking nice now and will show well for the next 10 years. Stuart Smith said he considers this wine to be “silky.” Yeah, like a velvet gloved fist! http://dsmwineconnection.typepad.com/des_moines_wine_and_food_/2011/09/2011-wine-industry-tastings-pt-ii.html
Julie Ann Kodmur is a second-generation Californian who was born in San Francisco and grew up in La Jolla. As an eighth grader she was the runner-up in the state spelling bee. She’s lived in Italy and New York and now lives in the Napa Valley with her family. She is a marketing and publicity consultant in the wine industry. Her business life can be seen at http://www.julieannkodmur.com. This is the home for the overflow. The ‘title’ is a reference to a sculpture honoring an Argentinean journalist who practiced his craft in the 1930s before literally dying for his words. No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
