Peter Dills Knows 

Dessert before dinner? Why not? I have said many times in our 
teachings here that if you like it, buy it. Over the holidays I hosted 
a wine seminar at the Whole Foods in East Pasadena. Our 
list of wines included champagne, sangria, chardonnay, and a 
petite sirah, with price points ranging from $10 to $50 (yes, that 
was the Taittinger Champagne). To my pleasant surprise the hit 
of the tastings was a Petite Sirah from San Simeon Winery. 

If you recall last weeks article on "fruit forward" and "jammy", a 
petite sirah is often a perfect starter wine for those just learning 
about wines, or those who might want an alternative to caber-
net. Prices can range from $8 to $30 for a bottle. At $18 for the 
San Simeon Sirah, this Orange County Fair gold medal winner 
is a great value in my book. It is indeed a bit jammy, but that is 
perfectly acceptable with grapes that are aged well. Petite sirah 
grapes were first introduced in France in the 1800’s, but really 

never caught on partly due to the high humidity in Rhone. Here 
in California we have a drier climate so, much like the chardonnay grape, the petite sirah has 
thrived. Originally, petite sirah was paired with zinfandel grapes to tone down that “jammy” 
effect. Winemaker Anthony Riboli explains that they were able to capitalize on the small 
grapes' high skin-to-juice ratio and make an exceptional wine on it’s own merit without needing 
to be blended. This critic agrees - I think that this San Simeon treasure is especially appreciated 
during the winter and will go great with a beef stew or a spicy bowl of chili with or 
without beans. 

This weeks wine term: Tannins. Think of tannins as how the wine lies on or grips your tongue. 
Smooth? Rough? Neutral? Bitter? In layman's terms, it’s "pucker power". Let’s hope it’s not the 
last one, bitter, that wouldn’t be good.

England Lawn Tennis Club in

Tennis elbow is the most common 
cause of persistent elbow pain 
with some sufferers feeling symptoms 
for years. But you don’t have 
to be a tennis player to get tennis 
elbow. In fact, the first patient to 
benefit from Emma’s method was 
a professional drummer who developed 
tennis elbow after playing thousands of gigs. Thankfully, Emma’s program healed him 
over the course of a couple of months and he’s back playing drums now as though nothing had
