What I drank tonight

bottles2/12/13  Dad’s Birthday! Started off with a nice Nardo 07 Brunello di Montalcino with the Minnestrone but disappointed the Sassacaia Guado al Tasso was not in stock.  Moved to a Cesare Amarone 07 with the Puttenesca and finished with an 05 Provenance Cab with the chocolate.  Of course there were 4-6 of us and the wines were well received.  Great company, food, and wine. good night all around.

Very cool.  hosting a 2000 Bordeaux tasting later this month.  Whoopee!

One thought on “What I drank tonight

  1. What we drank last night. Whew! Thank you party for my pourers at The Easter Seals tasting this year. Private room at a well known restaurant which will remain unnamed for now.
    01 Dehlinger Russian River Pinot Not drinking well too much fruit
    Try next year
    07 Ladera Lone Canyon Napa Cab Smooth rich and silky Went well with the Barbeque and Lamb (now it’s Harlan Estates-too bad)
    07 Robert Young Bob’s Burn Pile The best Alexander Valley Cab ever Dense black and inky Perfectly balanced fruit and acidity
    01 Guigal Cote Rotie Heavy on the fruit but a good bottle not my style but one of my helpers is a Rhone guy.
    08 Robert Young Alexander Chard Rich and smooth velvety on the palate with some tropical friut on the finish Nice with the chicken
    04 Ladeera Howell Mt Napa Cab Just coming into its prime. Howell Mt. fruit is notoriously slow to come around. Still plenty of tannins but drinking well with the fruit still bright enough to balance the tannins. This had the rack of lamb all over it.
    There may and probably were more but it’s all I can remember. Hmmmmm. All for now. Back to the business world. P
