Crooked Street 2012 Malbec
A popular theory suggests that malbec grapes were originally planted throughout France by an adventurous Hungarian peasant. Given the Hungarian blood running through my veins, I am proud to present the 2013 Crooked Street Malbec, produced locally in the Napa Valley by the Hendry Ranch. Although most malbec finds its way into red wine blends, this bottle was produced from the single varietal alone, with nothing to distract you from appreciating what this famous grape has to offer. I hope you enjoy its dark violet color, light-bodied mouth feel, and soft tannin finish. So, as the Hungarians say when they raise their glasses... Egészségére!

Over the years many people have asked me, "When are you doing AT&T Park?" "When will you celebrate the SF Giants and their baseball dynasty?" Well, I'm happy to say the time is now... After three months of work, I'm happy to say I've completed my latest piece, entitled "Baseball by the Bay". The composition celebrates the city of San Francisco, the SF Giants and the amazing people that make baseball in San Francisco so special. There is more detail in this piece than in much of my other work. And at the same time, it's not necessarily meant to be a 100% accurate representation of AT&T Park. It's far more about the spirit of the game, played by the San Francisco Bay, of those gathered on the field or in the stands or on their kayaks in McCovey Cove. Baseball by the Bay is available as a signed and numbered limited edition on both fine art paper and canvas. You can purchase this piece via this website, and I offer free shipping in the U.S.
