If my potential hoarding tendencies had to manifest themselves in any way, I’d prefer it be the hoarding of Mara Hoffman pieces. This short caftan is so brilliant—the hood is genius, and her prints are always fantastic. I remarked that her past season looked sort of space/tribal influenced; whatever season this baby hailed from was definitely Aztec/Candy Express. I love it.
Did you ever see that documentary where the woman fell in love with bridges, and married one? And waited until the cloak of night to fornicate with it? I don’t love it quite that much.
This is something the guys can understand—bare feet, a pair of tight jeans or corduroys, undone hair and a comfy sweater on your lady. Sexy. Add an oversized wine glass holding the last splash of something special, and the photo lights are destined to start warming.
This is my kind of outfit post.

[To see the below wine as it resides in an awesome collage about Montauk, check out this post at Holier Than Now I was commissioned to help out with.]
Just a 2-acre plot behind the Bedell winery, on the craggy-looking North Fork of Long Island, is the unlikely source of a world-class Merlot.

The departure Syrah. The summer Syrah. The Pinot Syrah.
Yes, this is all true, and it’s getting credited as such. I once had a great Zinfandel from a very exciting cult Napa producer—the problem was, it was a Sangiovese. But, you would have never known—this is a undesirable departure. What Anthill accomplishes with their ’07 Windsor Oaks is much different—the flavors are distinctly Syrah, but the texture and mouthfeel is daringly lean.
Stymie was one of the most famous race horses in American history. Once Stymie gained a lead, he would never relinquish it. So dramatic was his racing style that his name became an official word in our vocabulary. To “stymie” someone is to never let them advance. It was a winning wager on Stymie by my father that gave him the wherewithal to move our entire family from New York City to San Francisco when I was a small child. The label STEELE-STYMIE is reserved for our rarest, small production wines of the highest quality.

Pali Wine Co. is a fairly new winery—2005 was the first vintage. They brought a diverse field of single vineyard Pinot Noir to the market under the expert winemaking oversight of Brian Loring (Loring Wine Co.). The wines were released at a price that was considered very competitive, perhaps unheard of, for some of the more sought after vineyard sites. The ’06/’07 vintages were expansive, covering every Pinot hotspot on the west coast, all released in limited numbers, some no more than a few hundred cases.
