2011 Arnot-Roberts Trousseau Luchsinger - awesome
Bastardo ( Trousseau) makes me think of Portugal.
Glad you liked it.

Pizza night with friends:
2009 François Villard Syrah L'appel des Sereines
2005 Pizzato Fausto Cabernet-Sauvignon, Serra Gaucha, Brazil
2009 Vina Bujanda Crianza Rioja
1998 Charles Ellner, Champagne, Brut Prestige (a little too much apple/cider for me)
2009 Marc Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet
2003 Domaine des Baumard, Savennieres, Clos du Papillon
2003 Albert Bichot, Aloxe-Corton, Domaine du Pavillon, Clos des Marechaudes (good wine, but not sure I would have identified it as pinot noir blind)
2004 Leoville Les Cases, St. Julien
2001 Antinori, Guado al Tasso
2001 Henschke, Shiraz, Mount Edelstone (this is 12 years old? I can't imagine how huge it must have been on release)
2010 Saint Cosme, Condrieu
1980 Moulin Touchais, Coteaux du Layon (nice, but not as much as the 1985 I had last weekend)
I think that was everything. If I didn't write any comment beside a wine, it was just excellent. I would hold the 04 LLC. My WOTN was either the Guado al Tasso or the Condrieu.
2010 Oremus Furmint Tokaji (dry) Mandolas
2002 Dagueneau Pur Sang
1991 R. Lopez de Herdia Gran Reserva Vina Bosconia
Dinner with friends last night at our place, wines in recognition of our 25th anniversary:
very nice. Congratulations.
"The hardest thing to attain ... is the appreciation of difference without insisting on superiority" George Saintsbury
Agree as well. I had a bottle of the 2001 last Fall and it was very impressive.
2008 Marchesi di Barolo Barbera d' Alba Ruvie.
2007 Pupille Poggio Valente Morellino di Scansano Riserva
This wine showed a lot of concentrated flavour when it was opened, but it was oh so tight. Much better on the third day. I'm going to wait 2-3 years before opening any more bottles.
2010 Dominique Piron Côte-de-Brouilly
and mixing some white port cocktails.

Just found a bottle of white port that I didn't know I had in my cellar. Any good recipes worth sharing?

1995 Clerc Milon
2010 Rivers Marie Cabernet

How was the 1995 Clerc Milon?
It took almost 2 hours in the decanter for this wine to even show anything, but when it did after the 3rd hour it was splendid.
ya it's strawberry season here so they're cheap
take a bunch of strawberries juice it,
3 parts white port
1 part tequila
add lime to taste.
or take a peach and soak in it int he white port, when ready to serve, take a dash of brandy and place over.
or the traditional way is to use pears and soak it in white port.

These dishes would be significantly more fun if there was fire involved.
