Chef Ken, f-mattox, and anyone else who'd like to comment:
Your comments, please, on the following wine list....
(2) 2001 Grand Reserve (55% cab, 35% cab franc, 10% merlot) bordeaux blend
(2) 2000 Petit Syrah
(1) 2003 Malbec (for one of the seafood nights)
(2) 2004 Syrah (might be a little early-I helped bottle them in May 2006)
(1) 2003 Pinot Noir(the other seafood night)
(2) 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon
(2) 2003 Zinfandel
Then, of course, there will be a few smuggled through my luggage!
Well, when you make your final decision, please post so that I may order the same on our cruise. As you would say, I got the giddies now! So does the family....you can just sense it when I get home! Weather looks good next week for the caribbean too!
Hey goin' cruisin', I must have missed the Thunderbird and the Ripple; gosh, I remember those daze when that was the affordable ones for me. I'd let you order for me as well. Ido enjoy
Syrah, Merlots, and Cab's. I've also moved along from Two Buck Chuck as well....
Don't get me going on $2 Buck Schmuck, er Chuck. The man behind $2 Buck Chuck owned an offshoot winery back in the late 1980s early 1990s known as Bronco Winery. They were prosecuted in the Eastern District of California federal court for mislabeling their wines. On their label, they identified the wine as an Alexander Valley, or a particular vineyard in Napa or Sonoma, when in fact it was a much lower quality grape from a different region. He lied. Don't much really care for liars.
Thanks goin' cruisin', I don't like misrepresentation either and will inform my son because he will pick up a case of this when he sees it at the price of $3. buck Schmuck; now there's mislabeling if I ever saw it $2.00 for $3.00. Haven't purchased it myself in ages. Maybe I got a subliminal message about the fraud and stopp[ed buying it ???
Sorry goin'cruisin', I hate to admit complete ignorance of a subject so dear to your heart, but I'm afraid that's the case.
I know red and I know white and I know Asti Spumanti, but that's about it. What little I know about wine I picked up from the movie "Sideways".
