Reply to "January 2013: What are you drinking?"

Met M/M TLV for dinner this evening:

N.V. G. Fluteau Champagne Blanc de Noirs Brut
2010 Varner Chardonnay Spring Ridge Vineyard Home Block
1997 St. Innocent Pinot Noir O'Connor Vineyard
2006 August West Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard
2005 Gaec-Gallet Henri et Philippe Côte-Rôtie

Another terrific evening with PurpleHaze m/m thelostverse. The Gallet was a perfect match with braised lamb shank. The August West is in a terrific place now- one word: elegant (not something I'd have associated with August West before tonight). The St. Innocent is still youthful. Hold the Varner for 5+.

TLV...I find it funny based on one line of conversation earlier tonight that the Blues Brothers is on HBO right now.
