Paul Kosacz - Oracle of Bachus
Paul Kosacz is New England originated, Ivy League educated, middle aged wine biber and sometime foodie, I spend my weekdays at a desk and no insubstantial part of my off hours indulging my passions for good food and drink in and about Los Angeles, where I currently reside with my Jack Russell terrier, and other places hither and yon.
I’ve known the scoundrel known locally as the Austin Wine Guy for a number of years, and happily made him the oft unwilling recipient of this that or the other particular rant originating out of whatever cultural mosquito bite I happen to have received most recently. He has also been an involuntary sounding board for my own take on a subject that my detractors say I too often ponderously pontificate, namely indulgence. Now, to know me is to know that I don’t lack strong opinions, particularly about those things I find near and dear. Love me, love my dog, as they say. So you would think, n’est ce pas, that the last thing I needed was encouragement to broadcast them to a wider audience. The truth is, I have had to be cajoled for the better part of an entire year to do this. But now it is too late for regret.
The Oracle has been awakened, and plans on delivering to you (on a more or less regular schedule) his views on wine and food, in hopes of amusing, scintillating, educating and provoking you. I hope you enjoy reading what I post as much as I enjoy writing it, and find it valuable or helpful in choosing a wine to pair with a particular food or in better understanding what it is you like…or don’t like.
