Jesus you people are in a rush. Where are you going to after having such a nice bottle of wine? (nice enough that breathing is an issue)


This is why I've never bothered with it. I usually just pop the cork before I start cooking the meal I'm making to go with the wine. Then I swirl the first glass before I drink it and forget about it beyond that. I don't even own a decanter.

They say that shaking the shit out of a bottle can do the equivalent of laying it down in a cellar for 5 years. So there's that.

They...


I own a decanter but its really for those extra special wines and mostly to convince people around me that they are indeed special. (some people like the mystique more the the wine - who am I to burst their bubble)

Why are you serving heathens like that good wine?

I guess I can understand the ceremonial aspect of decanting a decent wine. It's also acceptable if said bottle is laden with sediment. Other than that if your guests don't know the real purpose i.e., to open up mediocre wines and make them more passable then they should be getting an extra special reserve of Chilean plonk.

I'll open a nice bottle ahead of time when I know I'm having one -- on a Saturday afternoon for that evening.

But in short notice cases, dunno. Supposed to wait at bare minimun a full hour according to some, as much as overnight to a whole day according to others. Like, if guests show up unannounced, I plop that aerating device in, watch the bubbles roll, their faces light up and my teeth turn gray.

You have to let a little out first, to get enough air in. Obviously if you have sediment in the bottle you have to decant first or you'll end up with gritty wine. I've never seen a criticism that says why that wouldn't work other than that whole bruising hogwash.

I seem to just have bought a case of Château Bouscaut 2005. I'm not sure I got a great deal on the wine, but I'll at least get the original case to hang on to as a memento.

Not off the top of my head. Most dry Riesling's are 1s, but if you get one with a higher acidity it will taste a little drier. I find Niagara Riesling to be pretty consistently good, so you could just poke around until you find a really dry one. I think the Inniskilin and Malivoire are on the drier side, but I can't say I've actually tried either.

Yeah I don't drink too many whites and with my wife not drinking for the past couple of years, beer has become my choice. However, mama plan likes her dry white wine so I gotta stock up.

Predo, you have to add 25% to prices for goods sold in our socialist paradise. That's a 25$ bottle here.

I'm quite a fan of Errazuriz Fumé Blanc, myself. It's about $15 in Quebec, so it's probably that or less where you are. No idea about the dryness rating, though.

Several years ago I worked on a case where a pledge suffered kidney and liver damage when a frat encouraged him to drink six bottles of Thunderbird. Out of curiosity I tried a bottle of it myself. In hindsight, it may have been one of the better wines I've ever tasted. I recommend that any American or person travelling there reading this try it.

Drank an obscene amount of excellent wine in Italy recently but alas only one appears to be available here in Canada (at the SAQ to be more specific)

Isole e Olena 2011 Chianti Classico - $29.95 a bottle. Might seem a little pricey for Chianti but if you happen to find this wine buy a case.

Went to a steakhouse for a celebratory dinner over the weekend and brought along a bottle of my caymus 2011 and domaine carneros 2009 brut. The server thought I was some type of serious wine collector or some shit. I was like nah brah just went to napa and picked up some thangs.







oh by the way the caymus was magnificent.

Also for you wannabe or real wine snobs the nyt wine critic does a wine school every month for different wines. Three months in at this point. Bordeaux, Beaujolais, and some French white have been done this far. Doing the Beaujolais tonight. I got the cheap one, Not bad with food but I'd go for one of the cru over the village he recommends.

Yeah it's a big time fruit bomb with not much interesting going on. Can get a little spice to open with food but pretty weak IMO. But the critic hyped up the two cru's but didn't have any luck finding them at the wine shop

Ditto.

I've tried several times to check out this new phenomenon, but every time I come back thinking the people who love it are just idiotic sheep. It's boring, young, mediocre wine.

I'm holding no punches, my team just lost 7-2 in the conference finals. Fuck you if you bought the hype.

That said, the 2013 Bordeaux futures are right around the corner, and I've never been disappointed by what I got out of them. For all the flaws of the LCBO, this is something they most definitely do very well.

Beaujolais is fine as long as you don't excpect it to be a Saint-Julien or a Barbaresco.

Pure fruit, no wood, finnesse, and usually under 25$... quite a good value IMO.

One of the best Priorat wines I've had, 2009 is also considered one of the best vintages in ages for the region.

French laundry tonight. Drunkkkkk


http://www.wsj.com/articles/napa-wine-heist-is-tough-case-to-solve-1420838429


Inside job right?



YOUNTVILLE, Calif.—The list of suspects could number in the dozens—or more. The places where the stolen loot could be sold: almost anywhere on earth.

Yet sheriff’s investigators in Napa County still hope to solve one of the most sensational crimes ever in this famed wine region: the Christmas Day theft of rare vintages worth as much as $300,000 from the French Laundry, a restaurant rated among the best in the world.

Taken in the heist were 76 bottles, including many from the legendary French winemaking estate of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Napa Valley cult favorite Screaming Eagle. The vintages are so rare that some bottles are valued at more than $15,000 each, according to the online database Wine-Searcher.

The theft itself was less exotic: Someone pried open a door just hours after the restaurant had closed to begin a monthslong renovation, then forced open a cellar where the bottles were stored, Napa County Sheriff’s Office investigators say. A burglar alarm at the restaurant hadn’t been set, they said.

As of Friday, the crime remained unsolved. Investigators said they could get a break if the thief or thieves attempt to sell the high-end wines, because many can be tracked by serial numbers on the bottles.

“The quality of these wines is such there aren’t large numbers readily available, so if they actually surface in a legitimate market, they will be seen,” said sheriff’s Capt. Doug Pike. His agency has alerted wine buyers and sellers nationwide about the theft.

However, no database exists of wine serial numbers for a vendor to readily check if a bottle is stolen, said Maureen Downey, a wine-fraud expert from San Francisco. In addition, stolen fine wine often is traded on the black market, including to buyers overseas, said Chuck Hanson, a wine buyer for Hi-Time Cellar, a wholesale wine retailer in Costa Mesa, Calif. Mr. Hanson said whoever committed the crime likely planned it carefully, and may sell it directly to a collector or a small store that may not be concerned about where the bottles come from.

“If the guy is fairly smart, no way you will track him down,” Mr. Hanson said. “They know they can’t sell that wine, except to someone they know.”

A nearby restaurant, Redd, suffered a similar burglary last winter, losing 24 bottles of high-price wines. No wine has been recovered or arrests made in that theft.

Industry observers said restaurant break-ins for wine are relatively rare, with more wine thefts taking place at storage warehouses. “It is a wake-up call for other retailers and restaurateurs who are sitting on a gold mine of hundreds of thousands of dollars of wine to upgrade their security,” said Jon Fredrikson, a wine-industry consultant in Woodside, Calif.

The French Laundry, owned by celebrated chef Thomas Keller, has been awarded a coveted three stars from the Michelin restaurant guide each year since 2007. Known for a French menu that changes daily and features vegetables from its own garden, the restaurant sees its tables booked months in advance.

Mr. Keller declined to comment beyond a statement on Dec. 29, when he made the theft public. “We are confident that if and when any of the stolen bottles appear in public, they will immediately raise questions and red flags among the wine knowledgeable,” Mr. Keller said. The restaurant is insured for the loss, a spokeswoman said.

Capt. Pike said the theft appeared to be committed by someone with a great deal of knowledge about quality wines. “We are looking at any number of possibilities, including potentially an employee,” he said. He said that some of the 104 workers at the establishment are among those being questioned.

Yountville, meanwhile, is still coming to terms with this latest crime. “It is a violation of our safe place,” said John Dunbar, mayor of the town of about 3,000 people, whose restaurants and tasting rooms are a big tourist draw in the famed Napa Valley.

Walking by the closed restaurant early in the new year, Abby Zeiser, a visitor from Chicago, articulated a widespread anger. “It’s a really stupid crime to commit,” said Ms. Zeiser, 30. “It’s unfair to the people who built up this business.”

Other local businesses said the theft has made them more vigilant. At the Pacific Blues Café, assistant manager Nikko Steen said his business began storing its fine wine in a locked cellar and stepping up other precautions after a case was stolen there a year ago. The magnitude of the French Laundry theft “is an eye-opener,” Mr. Steen said. “We are on more alert now.”

There was relief, at least, that no one was hurt in the incident. “It’s only wine,” said Bob Hurley, chef-owner of Hurley’s, another upscale eatery here. “It’s not the end of the world.”

Also apparently the one of the Wagner kids just put out a new pinot. Tried it at a party, I think it's around $30. Not a blend like Meiomi. Very smooth. Elouan. Oregon Pinot.

This is unhelpful for anyone in Ontario or probable Quebec, but if you ever get a chance to sample wine from the Azores, look for a white from Pico. They're bone dry, but generally a little fruitier than the Rieslings from Ontario, which I find to be a little more on the mineral side. It makes 'em nice for pairing with food. I particularly enjoyed the one from Frei Gigante.

It hasn't been around much lately. They did a release of the excellent 2004 vintage a couple of years ago, but I haven't noticed it since.
