    Well…what did I drink over Christmas…a Rosemount Estate Grenache and Syrah blend 2003 I think. I decanted it for 6 hours. It was nice…Probably not a great “Vayniac” type wine, but I am learning…even drank it in my new speigalau red wine balloon glasses (from Target none the less)…

    Thanks for exposing us to a new (for most of us) region!

    Christmas wines: Louis Roederer Brut NV, 2003 Eroica Riesling (yum), 2005 Girard Chardonnay, 2003 Dogwood Cellars Meritage (partner’s cousin is the winemaker), and Raymond Burr’s 2001 Port (okay, it is a CA Port-style wine).

    Had Uruguayan Tannat at an Uruguayan restaurant a few weeks ago — nothing life-changing, but a great food wine and a lot of fun to see the owner of the restaurant light up when we asked for something from his home country!

    Hi Gary, I’ll spare you the details of my Christmas drinking, but thanks for tasting Triguedina’s Probus 2003 for us.
    Bubble Brothers
    – we’re Triguedina’s Irish agents for the Prince Probus wines – brought in a few cases of the 03 just before Christmas along with the much more affordable Château de Flore from the same supplier, and I’m sending my customers to you via the Bubble Brothers blog so that anyone who wants to trade up from the Flore can see just what they’re going to get.

    Hey Gary,

    Love going back over some episodes I’ve missed. Cahors is particularly interesting, just finished “Families of the Vine” – great book.

    Looking forward to trying more of those Malbec babies!

    Tried Cahors tonight for the first time during the Superbowl with a big steak. It was the 2002 Clos La Coutale. I tasted it right away and it was pretty tight, but after decanting for 5 or 6 hours I love the leather, smoke, and dark fruit. Great stuff!

    qotd went cheap this weekend. got a domaine de la Chanade ‘les Rials’ blanc from cote du tarn (southwest France.) Got it because it was made with this rare oddball varietal I hadn’t tried yet called loin de l’oeil. Means ‘look for the eye’ in french or something like that. For $7 I had no expectations. Pretty good for the money actually, light crisp acidic, tasted like limes. Went well with the fish I had in a lemon butter sauce.
    Gary, you gotta do a vin jaune episode buddy.
