Xhoser, can you make the reservation since you are on a first-name basis with the Topaz staff? Smile

Aphilla brought up the question of theme. Personally, I can do without out one other than bringing something really nice to send our favorite Calinadian out with a bang! That being said, everyone always brings "something really nice". I'm planning on bringing a 1988 Rieussec for dessert. Just my two cents.

What's "wfm"?

I am certain we can find a couple of good bottles to open. We'll do a white (non-sparkling) and red TBD.

Just got the directive to limit travel the rest of the year so not looking promising for me to be in town that week. I was hoping to meet some of the Chicago crew... Frown

Now that Tuesday has come and gone, a lot of businesses are considering accelerating income and deferring expenses...hopefully we can catch you in the new year, Vino.

So I think we will bring:
2010 Sine Qua Non The Monkey (white)
1996 M. Chapoutier Côte-Rôtie La Mordorée
2005 Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard

Bill

I will handle the reservation tomorrow and will look for something decent to bring. Currently sitting on plane at SFO heading home after a week of busy business meetings.

I will be +1.

I got us a reservation at 6:30 pm for 12 people at Topaz Cafe in Burr Ridge under my name. Probably the only wine group coming in. If we shrink to 9 people they have a separate room we could use otherwise we will be in main dining room.

My plan is to bring the following:
White - 2006 Domaine Yves Cuilleron Condrieu Les Chaillets
Red - 2001 Domaine Charvin CdP

Laura seems more of a sure thing now but if she drops out at the last moment I am still bringing the same.. We will just have to buck up and drink a little more. Big Grin

Speaking of CB, I had the 2001 recently and it was very approachable and drinking nicely.

My CB is 2004 and not ready to drink in my opinion. How about some 2005 Hundred Acre instead to go along with some of the other Cali wines?

I'm sure whatever you bring will not suck! Looking forward to Monday.
