“Appreciating old wine is like making love to a very old lady. It is possible. It can even be enjoyable. But it requires a bit of imagination.”
Enjoyed with friends at lunch today, Riesling and a whole grilled red snapper.

There is nothing in our intelligence that has not passed by the senses. (Aristoteles)
I'm a fan, and the '05 is an excellent vintage.
Their blanc is 100% S. Blanc, if that matters to you.
2005 Querce Bettina, BdM
Enjoyed an excellent bottle of 2009 J-F Quenard Chignin Bergeron VV this afternoon.
Perhaps the best showing of any bottle from the case I bought on release yet.
2011 Crios Torrontes
2010 Chateau de Saint Cosme "Les Deux Albion" CDR
My first glass since my spinal fusion, over 6 weeks. 2005 Justin Isosceles. Delicious!
I wish you well and complete recovery.
Godspeed to you.
I've never had a Keller but always wanted to try one.
Ditto. My wife had it and I know what a recovery that is!
Just one more sip.
2009 Hobel CS
2009 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mtn. CS
Have multiples and couldn't resist- I preferred the Hobel, which I enjoyed over 4 hours. The O'Shaughnessy is showing too much oak at this stage.
2009 Maysara Winery Pinot Noir Estate Cuvée
2009 Darioush Cab very tight as I expected
2009?? 2480 Cab nicely approachable
2007 Château Léoville Poyferré
Before I'm charged with infanticide, I just finished an article citing the progression of '07 Bordeaux. With a couple of these in the cellar, why not test the claim?
(3) hours of air, and this bottle was open for business. Gorgeous wine, great balance, and definitely approachable with a healthy decant. If this is what Poyferre can produce in an "off vintage," wow...
From 375, Duval-Leroy Rose de Saignee NV. Nice little bubbly. A little toast and some berries. Soft floral nose. Lovely light salmon color.
2007 Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia. Lovely after about an hour of air.
2000 Chateau Plince Pomerol
2000 Chateau Haut Batailly
1990 Chateau Lynch Bages
I really wish more Champagne splits were available in my market.
You can never get enough of what you don't really need.
Last night at a happening new spot in Houston called Triniti.
2010 EnRoute Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Les Pommiers
I ate there this week as well. What did you think?
Did you try the tasting menu by chance, and what did you think of the art?
It was our first time, and we had heard good reviews. In fact we were with friends who had enjoyed it very much previously.
Formerly a drinking lounge, the space has been well converted to this upscale garden to kitchen restaurant. A bit noisy but definitely had a vibrant feel with an older crowd. We were over by the windows, so I did not appreciate much artwork. I wish that I had known - I would have paid more attention. But one very large photo print of a blindfolded knife-thrower caught my eye and was pretty entertaining!
The food, we thought, was spectacular. We ordered off the menu. Among the tasties; foie gras breakfast with sausage patty, doughnuts, quail egg over easy, cappucino mousse, and fried foie gras was ridiculously tasty. Wagyu teriyaki carpaccio. Pork collar with corn risotto and scallop, Wagyu flank steak, and the crispy duck. The food was very good, but as you well know, enhanced by good company and wine.
How was your experience?
