What Are You Drinking Right Now?

Recommended Posts

Severely over-hopped harvest ale homebrew. I didn't think I would ever use the phrase "over-hopped" in my lifetime, but I did it.

taking care of the little boy tonight (4 months old). so I got into my secret stash of Bundaberg Ginger Beer imported from australia into the wonderful 'world market' (and its not that diet shite either!). Following that up with some loose leaf Majulighur TGFOP tea. mmmmmmm.... Ginger beer in America is such a disappointment :blink:

'06 Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz, '04 Branson Coach House Block Shiraz 2004

The Mollydooker is good, but a bit more fruit than I like up front, and showing the 16% a bit. The BCH....is awesometown. I don't know much about wine, but I know that I love this. Big, punchy, but not overly fruity, and with a beautiful dry blackberry finish.

A co-worker just got back from a trip to cali, where he ordered a ton of wine. Wine Fridays are his new policy designed to help empty out some of his stock. I like Wine Fridays.

Chateau Coupe Roses Minervois, '03 Cuvee Orience. A little hot on the nose, slight whiff of rosemary, and lots of black currant and lavender.

Wednesday night was single malt before the game, hoppy California beer during. Thursday night was hoppy California beer before the game, single malt during. I'm going back to Game 1 karma. Game 2 karma, while positive, is just too stressful. Besides, beer looks more like DIRTY WATAH!

Go. Sox.

Finishing off the last of a bottle of a 1999 Fattoria di Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico that we had with pizza from Riccutti's for dinner.

More of the "Umi Neko" sake from a brewery, whose name we can't completely translate, in Hachinohe, Aomori Prefecture. A sweet rice flavor predominates; nothing else really stands out.

Gonet Brut Rose NV champagne. The dirtiest of dirty water!

(Actually, a lovely drop brought in by local Champers specialists JAO Wine Imports).

1997 Michel Perraud Cornas Cuvee Vignon. Not at all as tight as I thought it would be. Cornas tends to be quite hard a long time similiar to the Mourvèdre based Bandols from Provence

I have a a few cases of the 1998 Michel Perraud Cornas le Vignon and cracked a bottle a month or so ago and really thought it was not ready, in my opinion. Going to let them sit a bit more....

Well Senor Nut, all I can say is that the 1997 is rockin now. Can't speak to the 1998 though. Most of my focus in 98 has been down south.

30 year old Laphroig thanks to some great guys (you know who you are!) :blink:

This is the finest single malt I've had the good fortune to drink. Picked up three bottles a few years ago, intending to keep them for "special occasions". Amazing how every day became a special occasion when this was sitting in the cabinet. :P

Those are truly some fine friends.

Trimbach Riesling Alsace 2005. Transparent, intricate, floral. Bone dry. Despite its seeming ubiquity in the USA (thanks to a 40year relationship with Seagrams/Diageo), Trimbach is only the 22nd biggest wine producer in Alsace. And it's one of the best value. $12.99 at Wegmans. And yummy! :blink:

Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta, a wonderful gift form my father in law. He let me in the cellar to pick out 2 bottles for my 40th birthday.

I did not have much time, he gave me 40 seconds to get in and out.

A steely 2006 Gaba do Xil, I love how some of the Spanish wines have names like cities in China.

A really big 2000 Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras.

Found a bottle my wife had "misplaced", it was a Biltmore Estate Zinfandel Blanc De Noir. No year on bottle but was purchased in 99 or 00.. so Guessing its probably a 99ish.

Not quite sure what to make of it. I'm not a great zinfandel fan. It seemed fairly dark for a rose wine. I wouldnt buy it again, nothing against it but nothing compelling for it either.

I should have learnt that my house doesnt turn up 'hidden' treasures in the backs of cupboards by now.

Welcome to the American horror that is white zinfandel, "a popular choice with those who would not otherwise drink wine." :blink:
