Got a keg of Yuengling and a keg of Black Daze Black IPA from Ellicotville Brewing for our Buffalo Bills boys week-end. 17 Guys and the kegs will be done in two nights...

THAT's guzzling!

 

Will be at a friend's house from  Buffalo. He's making wings and we're bringing cheesesteaks. Everyone will be bringing stellar wines.

FYI Yuengling is a pretty much considered a Philly beer. It's brewed in Pottsville an hour or two from the city LOL

2013 Amavi Syrah, Walla Walla. 

How was this? Enjoyed some WA syrahs with some fellow forumites earlier this week. We had a 2013 Reynvaan In the Rocks, a 2013 No Girls Syrah, and a 2016 Delmas Syrah. All showed well and were really good. We also enjoyed a Krug NV, a 99 Isosceles, and a 97 Cosentino cab. Solid Wednesday night.

It was really nice despite the tannins being a little firm still. Great dark fruits and a spice component. We popped and poured; an hour of air would have been a good idea. 

Last night at my place with a group of the Toronto crew. WOTN for me was the 1990 Bollinger. But everything showed exceptionally well. All the reds were fantastic. 

FYI we opened the 2016 Piantonaia - the wine that Galloni gave 50 points, calling it abysmal and horrendous. We drank it alongside the 2009. The 09 was superb. The 16 lacked the structure and depth of the 09, but it was a perfectly enjoyable, fruit forward, early drinking vintage of Piantonaia. The general consensus was that it’s a 88-90 point wine.

Here’s the full lineup from last night:

2014 Laieta Gran Reserva Brut Nature

2014 Caballo Loco Grand Cru Brut Nature

2008 Philipponnat Blanc de Noirs Brut

Nice list Sunny et al. If you had a single bottle of the 07 Paleo would you hold it or is it good to go?

It's still a tannic beast. HOLD!

We realized pretty quickly last night that it was not very approachable, so only a third of the bottle was consumed. At the end of the evening I stuck it in the fridge. I pulled it out this evening, poured a glass and let it warm up... and it's still a monster.

Over the last week or so:

NV Laurent-Perrier Champagne Cuvee Rose Brut
2014 WesMar Chardonnay RRV
2018 Ridge Adelaida Vineyard
2015 Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa
2014 Liquid Farm Chardonnay Four

I think the label was still wet on the Ridge Adelaida, but it is a new wine from Ridge (White Rhone blend) and I had to see what they were working with.  I love it and bought more immediately.  The Paul Hobbs Cab was also excellent with room for improvement.

2015 Valle dell'Acate Vittoria Il Frappato

Can’t deny it’s a well-made wine. It’s just not my style. Candied fruit and savoury notes competing with each other.

I had one last week and felt the same way.  I've really ejoyed previous vintages as lithe elegant expressions of frappato but this one saw too much heat.  I couldnt get over the jolly rancher.

Opened a bottle last night and it was definitely far more candied than the first couple bottles. Actually quite thin as well.
