Dinner last week with DoubleD, waterdr and green wine. One of the most notable wines of the night was 2006 Cayuse God only Knows because it was exceptionally BAD. Started out with a really lovely typical floral Grenache nose, but there was this really horrible bitter metallic aftertaste that just kept lingering long after consumption. It was like there was this solid core of Thallium on the midpalate and a hint of Radon and manganese on the finish. I waited a week to write this note to make sure none of us died from radiation poisoning. Never been a big fan of Cayuse and this one didn't help. At least Cayuse got the name correct. God only knows what the f... was in that bottle.
By the way, what was the Burg you also brought? I was gonna post something but I didn't remember half the wines. I remembered the 2004 Altesino Brunello, 2008 Larkmead Firebelle, ??? Ultramarine. Didn't catch producer of the German Auslese.
The German was a Donhoff. Don't remember the year. The burg was a 1988 Maison Ambroise Corton Le Rognet. The Altesino was a Montosoli.
