Life at LUX Steakhouse + Bar

Some random photos i found from LUX




Peller Estates, Private Reserve, 2007 Merlot, Okanagan Valley

Merlot has been given a bad rap as of late but there is no denying that it is making a resurgence.

The 07 Peller Estates Private Reserve Merlot, is easy to drink and at around $12 its easy on the wallet.

Lots of fruit, subtle chocolate and very approachable tannins.

If you’re not into tannic Bordeaux style varieties this is a great alternative

We recently had a private wine makers dinner with Stephanie Leinemann and I got the opportunity to get an autograph.

This trip was awesome. It didnt get much more serious then this. But the food and wine kept getting better.

Andrew Cowan, Matt Phillips and I had alot of fun doing this event. I look forward to doing it again next year.

We were paired up with Irvings Farm Fresh and Ex Nihilo Winery

“It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend, one’s present or future thirst, the excellence of the wine, or any other reason.”

Awesome Alma Negra Malbec from Mendoza Argentina for around 27 bucks its a steal of a deal. Sexy label as well.

Cannonball California Cab Sav also amazing value at 23, easily tastes like its twice the price.
