  • "Stainless steel wasn't even available until the 1960s"Good point in general, but it was available in industrial applications quite a bit earlier. Stainless steel did spread universally across most consumer segments by the '60s.

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • EM, that 2006 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon should have been a great wine, given it's low 90's rating and near $100 price tag.  It certainly sounds like one I would enjoy, except for too much tannin.  That's one reason I do enjoy the smoothness of a good Merlot.  Oh, that Naan bread from Rasika is called Mint Paratha.  It wasn't my favorite...

  • EM - We've enjoyed a Keenan wine before but I don't remember which one.  I'm sure it was tasty though.  I bet it was at one of our wine parties from the last few years.  MJ - Ok, if I see that DAOU in a wine store I will give it a try.  Last night we went over to Rick & Debbie's (our neighbors) house for another lovely wine dinner.  We do this e...
