2006 Rivers Marie Occidental Ridge PN last night on the patio with filet mignon, pan fried corn and fresh artichokes from the garden.
The RM was drinking very nice. Big and rich but with some air it softened. Drinking great and went well with dinner. Perfect balance of ripe fruit, earth and acidity.
Southbound, will be in Macon tomorrow. Stopped at Country Boy Brewing in Lexington for a stretch of the legs and a pint of Fulcan-A IPA. Georgia here we come!
Sorry, I fat-fingered my phone trying to select beer thread, can't seem to delete post from phone.
Dinner at the in laws again. Polished off a bottle of 09 Lapierre Morgon and a bottle of 85 Beringer Private Reserve Cab. The Lapierre was grumpy at first but woke up with about an hour of air. Still too big for my tastes, I will give it more time in the cellar. The Beringer was singing, fantastic bottle, at peak and drinking beautifully.
Then we dipped into some bourbon, still a bit fuzzy after last night.
Any of you guys ever had Chateau de Pez red Bordeaux? I have a copy of The Wine Bible by Karen MacNeil and she recommended it as a good, cheaper red Bordeaux. I found the 2007 vintage at a store here and it runs about $55...
