Whatcha drinking tonight?

Original post by outthere, Jun 11, 2012.

There hasn't been one of these threads here in quite some time so I thought I'd start it up again. Weather is warm here so I popped a Rosé.

What are you drinking?

Happy New Year!!!  This is my first posting to Snooth and since it is New Year's Eve, I'll be toasting in the New Year with a bottle of DELAVEENE Pere & Fils Grand Cru Brut Rose.  This will be my first experience with this particular champagne as I usually prefer Vueve Cliquot NV, which is reasonably priced and, in my opinion, quite yummy...crisp, small bubbles...will report soon on the DELAVENNE.  If anyone has any reports on this champagne, feel free to inform me.  Would love to hear from you.

Welcome to the Forum, Shelley.  There are several Snooth participants who are quite knowledgeable about bubblies.  I'm sure you will enjoy conversing with them.  I should mention that I am not one those bubbly-knowledgeable people.  However, I will join in the traditional toast this evening.  I have a Cava in the fridge preparing itself right now.

Happy New Year.

Had a 2006 Adelsheim Goldschmidt Vineyard last night.  Lucky to live in a town with lots of great restaurants, and very few liquor licenses.  So almost every place is a BYO.  As the waiter pulled the cork, it crumbled.  he quickly and professionally strained it into a decanter.  First sip was curious.  Almost unidentifiable as wine.  Disaster?  Fortunately not.  With about 10 minutes of air, it really started to open.  Very nice, fruit forward with a lot of dried fruit flavor - maybe cherries and apricot.  It must have been very good because Andrea, who is usually 1/2 glass behind, was constantly ahead of me.  Should have kept the bottle for a picture but it was already in the recycling bin.

Coincidentally, I finally sent my formal wish list requests into Quivet, Mike Smith's other label. 

And I ran into a friend whose cousin makes Pedemonte Cab, which was a big hero (under $30, high end Napa fruit, outstanding scores) who told me that Pedemonte was out of production for a couple years because grapes were costing him over $5000 a ton--and he manages the vineyard he was buying from!

Skipped wine tonight because we had Ethiopian food; skipped last night because we had Mexican.  Great for the waistline, but I'm getting behind in my consumption, since I just bought three bottles of Chardonnay from Jura and two bottles of Cornas.  Luckily we're headed to ski country soon and eating lamb and chicken and drinking syrah and pinot to keep warm.

Dang, thread dropped to page 3.

2010 Wind Gap Trousseau Gris. Bottle #897 of 2760 produced. Real tasty juice, nose of pear, grapefruit and wet stones. Ample acidity, refreshing and a touch stemmy.

Sorry about the dirty grout eMark;)

I've been addicted to Moscato wine recently. Very fruity, and can pick up a great bottle for under $10. Will prob have a glass or two tomorrow night for Valentines day!

Drinking a simple Diamond Label Rosemount from Australia....50% Riesling and 50% Traminer

Light and fresh and pale gold and subtle hint of green-mist satin hues...so smooth and pleasant

Having it with Japanese Dumplings!

Were you baking?  It looks like flour.

 

We had Alpha Omega Unoaked Chardonnay (2011), last night.  A perfectly fine wine, but outrageously priced.  Can't say that I would recommend it for the price.

Tonight I m finishing off a 2010 Four Cairn Napa Syrah. In the decanter is a bottle I was gifted by JD. 2010 Domaine Tortochot Morey-St Denis. Letting it open as best I can. Will post notes later.

Nice...looking forward to your notes, I've been considering opening my next bottle for weeks now.

In other burg news, I had to very refretfully decline my Maison Ilan allocation.

Last night it was candied strawberry and cherry almost like a Jolly Rancher or  Kool-Aid. Tonight the fruit has turned to sour cherry with lots of forest floor on the nose. Medium bodied, light tannins. Still real young but tasty. Plenty of acid to pull the fruit through for a long stash. What was the price point JD?

Price was $30 at one place and $33 at K&L but I think both are sold out by now. Considered grabbing a case but ended up buying quite a few of these (6-8). Good to hear your notes were consistent with mine, not a bad QPR for Pinot eh?

Not at all.

Speaking of Pinot QPR I bought up a 6 pack of 2010 Holdredge Sonoma County Pinot a couple of weeks ago and am picking it up Saturday.  $22.50/btl!

Drinking his 2009 RRV Pinot tonight. Real pretty stuff.

At last someone is interested in my darling Morey-St-Denis!!!

Let us have your tasting notes please.

The 2007 Clos St Denis Grand Cru from Nicolas Potel is divine.  I had it in London, and plan to purchase it again through Berry Bros. (brothers) & Rudd.

Another QPR Pinot for you JD. @ $25 this Rivers-Marie Sonoma Coast is the real deal. Stopped by and picked mine up yesterday and this soldier had to take one for the team. The usual full mouth of TRB Pinots but this one lacks the citrus/orange zest of the previous years. '11 was a tough farming year so I expected some vintage variation.

You're on a roll...would've thought 11' would be a good year for domestic PN but you never know, maybe they'll just need a little time to come around.  Almost feel like cracking some CA Pinot tonight, but I gots none. Closest I have is an Oregonian.
