Father’s Day dinner with my daughter and wife, thick pan- seared and oven finished prime tenderloin,  Caesar salad, garlic bread, and excellent bottle of 2005 Domaine Cristia Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, rich, plush, complex, very long. Fabulous showing, must be at peak by now but will certainly go a few more years. Yum!

Happy Father’s Day. I loved this wine. Great showing. Had my last bottle years ago

Friends over last night, so made turkey and leek meatloaf with rich mushroom sauce and a bunch of appetizers, with

- NV Lilbert Fils Champagne Perle Grand Cru Cramant Blanc de Blancs, very crisp, dry, apple, mineral, long finish. Excellent aperitif. Will buy more in next few days.

- 2018  Chateau Minuty Cotes de Provence Rosé et Or, a very nice $25-30 Provence Rosé, not special but solid. Problem is that it costs 3 times that. Would never buy again at anywhere near that price. Sheesh!

- 2012 Bergström Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard, top-shelf Willamette Pinot drinking really well right now; cherry, berry, espresso, balanced, long. Singleton bottle, wish I had a few more of these, delicious.
