Vertical cab tasting at Spring Mountain is badass and you should do it
We're staying down the street from it.
They offer it twice a day I believe so just remember to make a reservation. Our guy was Kike and he was a young guy, knowledgeable, really cool, might be worth requesting him. The older lady seemed a little bitchy so I’m really glad we got him. He gave big pours and started opening up old bottles that were all $200+
How is this pronounced? I don't want to get myself banned for hate speech.
2015 Clos du Val cab last night with a pan seared NY strip. Fan-fucking-tastic. Looking forward to trying the wine tonight on night 2.
Yeah it’s Kee-keh/kee-kay. You’ll be slurring a lot after the tasting anyway
Oh and if you’re staying close to Spring Mountain and want to do another high-quality tasting, do Pride. Supposedly some of the best wines in the valley, wish we had done them
Pride is a great tasting experience. If you can get in, also go to Boich Family Cellars. They have Beckstoffer sourced Cabs.
Great wine. I really need to learn more about other regions of Italy because a bottle of that I had in March and a Teroldego are both in my top 5/10 wines this year. I haven't had much outside of the basics.
Same boat here. So many great producers but it’s pretty intimidating trying to get started! Sicily has my heart right now. Also been jamming on some Valtellina nebbiolos.
That reminds me, I had this at a restaurant last week. It was delicious.
Cesanese is apparently a grape grown in the Lazio region near Rome.
I remember in my young age of going to Italy for a trip and having nothing but house wine's and them being better than most I could have here in the states. Then through the past few years narrowed it down to that most of the house wines I had where Chianti's and went with any food.
Back in Alabama for the week and keeping the Sicilian theme going.
I'm getting my first allocation of Saxum tomorrow. I'm not sure how long I've been on the waitlist but the oldest email I could find is from 2014 thanking me for my continued wait.
Where is that?
In-laws backyard in HSV
2015 Ridge 3 Valleys paired with BBQ chicken and white sauce. Fuck yes
In today's edition of wine for poors it's Kirkland Chianti
2015 Chappellet Las Piedras for me tonight. I always enjoy this wine.
Cross-posted with food thread. I’ve been craving a Chappellet Cab Franc (2014) ever since my tasting in late July. My weekends have been busy so we got a great Tuesday meal. Coffee rubbed steak, summer squash with basil and caprese salad.
How do the California examples compare to the Loire?
Bigger. Much bigger. Honestly, it is more like a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon than Chinon. It strikes me as being more red fruited than Chappellet's cabs and I've been kind of in the mood for that which I think is a summer preference for me.
