    A favorite of my wife's.

    Really? Which one?

    Silver Oak Bonny's is right around the corner from there and no matter the year I always got a little bit of green from these wines of the 80's.

    Tonight we're doing 2010 Pelle Menetou Salon Clos Blanchais (favorite house white) and 1996 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco. I'm sure we'll get into a few other things as well.

    Finished a rather pleasing bottle of Gnarly Head Authentic Red

    http://cheapwineratings.com/2012/01/...authentic-red/

    Not expensive, picked it up at the grocery store, similar to Apothic Red.
    Nice blend of various CA varietals that come together for an appealing
    wine that won't break the bank. The attached review is pretty spot on from my tasting.

    Boutari from Greece, one of their whites. Excellent and finely balanced.

    Celebrated an early Father's Day with a 2002 Staglin 20th Anniversary Cab ... was an excellent pairing with the bone-in ribeye. Tannin is largely resolved, but still dense fruit with balancing acidity. A fantastic bottle.

    I'm at work drinking some 2009 Inkblot. It's a Cabernet Franc from Lodi by Michael-David and it is amazing. If I had the money to blow I would certainly bunker a case of it. Great stuff!

    2004 Crianza de Restia Ribera del Duero - A very nice red for the price. 2011 Top 100. Went well with the bacon wrap tenderloins and cheddar white grits. It is somewhat fruit forward, but finishes of tobacco and wood. I think I'm going to go back and buy the rest of them.

    opened a rather old 2006 Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch (Carneros) Chardonnay and it was quite good. Even my wife liked it. No butter (malolactic). Crisp, grassy, lemons; my favorite taste of California Chardonnay. lots of 89 to low 90's on cellar tracker.

    Re: What wine are you drinking? Spring 2012

    Got engaged Saturday, opened a bottle of 2003 Vilmart & Cie Champagne Grand Cellier d'Or 1er Cru to enjoy right after she said yes. We knocked the bottle out while she was making phone calls. Went to dinner that night at the Capital Grille and opened one of our 2006 Chateau Teyssier Le Carre St. Emillion Grand Cru. Both were great, with the highlight being the Le Carre. What a blend of Merlot and Franc. Well balanced, black fruits and a great finish of Oak. Great wines for a great evening.
