    My Eclipse Barolo that I did as an EM two years ago, almost to the day... it’s really turned a corner. Smokey and delicious with a nice T-bone steak for dinner.

    70 and low humidity today. That spells grilling. Awesome wine for burger night. 90pt WS and under ten bucks.

    They've been carrying this for a year now. I really should stock up before it's all gone. I'm shocked that it isn't.

    A 2011 Barolo for my son's 16th birthday. He can't drink it, but it doesn't mean that I can't. 15586574284196567925700801140402.jpg

    Starting the holiday weekend tonight! 2012 CC Reserve Cab Sauv. No complaints. Paired wonderfully with leftover smoked meats!

    2009 Vidal Blanc. Probably past its prime, but certainly not horrible.

    We tried this Meiomi Pinot Noir a while back and have been buying bottles regularly since then. Sells everywhere for between 17 and 22/bottle and reviews seem pretty split between "mass produced for the masses so we hate it" and "mass produced but dang, it's still really good". If you like fruity Pinot you might give this one a shot. The Coppola Cab's not bad either.

    I like the Meiomi, but to me, there's a tinge of sweetness that sometimes turns me off. Other times, it's perfect. I've been a fan of Coppola wines for quite some time. Not the best QPR, but they are good. We honeymooned at two of his resorts in Belize - nothing but Coppola wines, IIRC. But I had no complaints about that.

    We’re polishing off a 2015 Hall Mt. Veeder Cab, it’s our “didn’t go to the beach” wine, quite spectacular. Mrs. is working on dinner, meatballs and spaghetti with garlic bread, I’ve got a 2016 Del Dotto Sangiovese that’s up for the task. This is my absolutely favorite domestic Sangiovese, and I’m pretty stoked...........

    Haven't had one of these since I escaped Tejas back in 1986. Was in TW on Friday and a wave of nostalgia hit me and I thought what the heck. Wonder if it still taste as bad as it did back then.

    Why yes, yes it does...... LOL
