OYA Restaurant & Lounge
Going into fall, I tend to start drinking wines with a little more OOMPH than
what I might be enjoying on a hot summer day: bigger whites and light-medium bodied reds. Think wines that feature flavors of the season: ripe tree fruits, baking spices, wet forest floor and truffles/mushrooms.
Urciuolo Greco di Tufo, Campania, Italy
Greco is the name of the grape used in this complex little wine. Aromas of ripe tree fruits—peach, apricot, apple mixed with wet stone, forest floor and almond notes. This is an interesting alternative white for Chardonnay drinkers because the texture is round and smooth. Pairs with salads and grilled seafood dishes.
SHINDIG Pinot Noir Blend, Michigan
Pinot Noir is a great wine choice moving into the fall, especially those with earthy, fall like flavors. Look for dark cherry and plum fruit mixed with truffles and forest floor. Pinot is always a favorite for grilled salmon, seared duck and dishes that feature mushrooms.
Dos Cabezas Sangiovese, Arizona
Sangiovese is the great grape of Chianti. The difference between Italian Sangiovese and “New World” Sangiovese is mainly the “fruitiness” factor. Chianti and Italian Sangiovese based wines tend toward a rustic style with tart cherry, earth and vanilla spice notes while wines like the Dos Cabezas are almost reminiscent of Pinot Noir with sweet dark cherry fruit along with earth and vanilla spice. Both types of wine are very suited for pizza, especially the SHINDIG!
Josep Foraster ‘Collita’ Tempranillo, Conca de Barbera, Spain
Another favorite fall wine is Spanish Tempranillo. These hearty reds feature black fruit flavors mixed with earth, truffles and toasty baking spice. Pair with lamb, game meats and hearty casseroles.

JUPITER, NEPTUNE, AND URANUS ARE STILL IN RETROGRADE
OCTOBER 8, 2010 VENUS GOES RETROGRADE
If you are thinking of ELOPING, the NEXT TWO WEEKS are the
best time to do this (don't wait! Venus is getting ready to go retrograde).
When Venus goes retrograde on October 8, 2010 we move into a
period of time that is unlucky, or unfortunate, for all aspects of love, and
love relationships. Do not make any rash decisions about ending a
marriage during this time. Be careful of doing things or saying things
that can critically damage your relationships.
There are a lot of stressful planets oppositions in place later this week
and lasting through the next few weeks.
EMOTIONS WILL RUN HIGH - IN ALL ASPECTS AND ALL AREAS
OF YOUR LIFE. (and everyone else's lives too).
(think of it as being like an uber version of "that time of month" for you
and everyone around you.)
There will be a tendency for you to want to be VERY HELPFUL, sharing
your knowledge or experience, BUT IT WILL COME ACROSS AS
BOSSY, KNOW IT ALL, AND CONTROLLING!
Think THREE times before you speak.
Literally - "hold your tongue".
It will be hard to fight the impulses to speak out, but navigate
communications cautiously, VERY CAUTIOUSLY.
This is a good time, to go within, meditate, reflect, get involved
in quiet projects (knitting, creating building, re-decorating,
activities where you can be working, but be able to go to the
quiet place of reflection in your mind).
Take a deep breath, smile and keep going!!
