What I drank last night

Headed for the Chophouse on Hanover Street. Corkage is now available for $25. 00 per bottle.  Great place to bring that special bottle to pair with the great food, service, and atmosphere.  Brought a bottle of 97 Justin Isosceles which after 20-30 minutes opened up beautifully.  It was fat, dense, and had a little funk on the nose initially but that blew off and it was everything we’d hoped for.  We started  a Dumol Isobel 2010 Chard that went perfectly with the pork dish.   The Dumol was lush and had a long tropical fruit finish.  What a fabulous bottle of wine.  I had brought a Premier Cru Chablis but the Dumol was too tempting to pass up. Obviously I seem to gravitate to big wines and by big wines I mean wines that almost attack your palate with flavors and feelings on the palate.    We left a taste of the Isosceles for Brandon, Craig, and Tony to taste and brought the rest of the Dumol home.   Great night of fun and frolic!
