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?

Nice to know I'm not the only person who is upload challenged. Interesting color NG, almost looks like an aged Sauternes. Sill trying to figure out what I am going to open on a Friday.

These sure are tempting though!

Zuf, it's getting cumbersome, no doubt, but it's serving a purpose for a lot of folks, it seems.

So here's my update:  Was going to finish that Barolo with Friday chicken dinner, but my younger daughter wanted to stop at WineMine because there's a kids' area with a stuffed animal that she has attached to.  (Is that legal?)  It was 20 minutes before closing, so I shopped a bit, got a couple bottles of PN and two cab francs--one from CA, one from the Loire--when David pulled out a quartet of half-full bottles that a rep had left behind and offered me my choice.  I took the rose, so I joined you on that NG.  It was Horse and Plow, unknown varietals, "North Coast" designation so probably a hodgepodge of bled off juice, I'm guessing usual S. Rhone rose suspects.  Did I mention the "screw cap?"  Nothing about this was looking like anything special, but it turned out to be really delicious, super light pink (I'd been sipping Tavel earlier and that was actually a little tannic for what I was looking for).  This wasn't wimpy, though, held up to some very flavorful chicken, plus my Tuscan kale with garlic and crushed peppers (I think that's the best I've ever cooked it, but the kale was just a few minutes from harvest--yep, eating from the garden already).  Finished it off--thank you, forgetful rep.

David also offered me a white, but I turned it down.  What was I thinking? 

And, in a coincidence, my wife stopped at Tallents restaurant in Bloomington, IN before flying home and had Klinkerbrick Old Vine Zin with the owner-chef (he's coming out to do a dinner at Mauritson in June, so that was the ice breaker), one of the wines in next week's VT from Lodi.

Cantina Terlan Alto Adige Pinot Grigio--2011.  I don't have the ambition to take a snapshot,

Well, warmth has returned to Southern California.  This one would be a good summertime sipping wine--very refreshing and tart.  Although I have been frustrated by Pinot Grigio in the past, I have to say that this is a good one.  We're going to grill some Ahi Tuna for dinner, tonight, and I've made the Citrus/Shallot sauce that I found in the Jake's cookbook.  I am optimistic that this is going to all work together.

Dava's cooking Creole Chicken. We're starting off with a 2012 Armot-Roberts Touriga Nacional Rose, slow oxing is a 2011 Bedrock Dolinsek Ranch (better known as Frati Ranch of old Joseph Swan days) Heirloom Old Vine field blend. Nice end to a day where I spent 10 hours on a tractor.

Right now, an Italian rose Albia from Barone Ricasoli (Toscana IGT), 2011. Nothing to write home about (and yet, here I am - writing you!), very subtle and and somewhat short on the finish.

There's a Barolo in store for later, which should prove to be more interesting.  :)

foxall, I wonder if that was the rose Dave gave me about a week ago... it was the only rose of pinot noir in his shop at that time- not sure if yours was a rose of pinot...  it was delightful.

Yes, we should start a new thread, zuf...  it is hazardous to mill through all the posts if one is new. 

Cheers, all.

OT- great choices for your meal- both while cooking and then eating!

I love Creole cooking... I have an amazing Jambalaya recipe that I only make at New Years.. everyone loves it, but I swear it is like crack, so I don't make ti too much or I would need to double my workout time!

Last night I had myself a chilled bottle of white wine.London is in the middle of a heatwave and I did have fish for my supper.I had a bottle of Domaine de Villargeau Coteaux du Giennois 2011 which I thought a superb example of sauvignon blanc at its best.I did write up a review for Snooth

No pic, but I am sipping a 2012 Mauritson DVC Sauvignon Blanc that we picked up when we visited the winery, last month.  

I don't know how many people know this, but if you are taking a statin to control cholesterol, you're not supposed to drink grapefruit juice.  I don't think it will hurt you other than it negates the positive affect of the drug.  Well, if you are taking cholesterol medication and you took a whiff of this Mauritson, you might get a scare.  I know a lot of times SBs, at least New World ones. are characterized by grapefruit flavors, but, wow, this one is the all time winner.  It's a very pleasant and refreshing drink, but I suspect that it is quite distant from what most people would expect.  I like it, but I think I'm going to switch to something else for my salmon dinner, tonight.

We're going to grill a steak, tonigh.  What better than to look at an Argentinian wine--Finca Las Moras Mora Negra

 

A friend of b-i-l brought this back from Argentina.  The back label is totally in Spanish and I have, unforntunately, forgotten most of what Mrs Jerauld taught me.  :-(  A quick web search teaches me that it is a Malbec/Bonarda blend.  First taste is darned impressive.

Happy Tuesday to all.
