the c&j is a crazy, great buy, if I didn't have way too many pairs of shoes, I'd be all over it.
sorry for that! no, we never owned the website, we just made a small commission on everything sold so there was no tail when we stopped. In a sense, we were victims of our own success, as sales grew, the commission started to add up so it made sense for the owner to bring in in-house.. I helped found a (non-wine related) startup that's doing pretty well, perhaps one day I'll have time to drink a little more wine (and make a little more bbq).
yeah, but the slow braised (or was it roasted) pig crisped before serving sounded pretty good. btw, I don't know if I ever posted about it but we're out of the wine business now. We created and ran the website for www.pjwine.com for about ten years. Lotta fun but what started as an exciting venture, followed by quick growth turned into something less exciting over time. Still, we were able to attend industry tastings, private appointments and meals at wineries, purchase...
we used to buy the high end caprai when it was more reasonably priced, our experience has been not to touch it for 10 years and then see where the tannins are. We were four and had the tasting menu, everything was great but the main dish, lamb chops, was a near miss. in retrospect, they let you shape the chef's choice and a main disk with pig would have been the way to go.
>>So, I stumble upon articles from time to time on how wine tasting is "bullshit", based on scientific studies that show that 'professionals' don't really know what the fuck they're talking about. here's a good piece from freakanomics radio, apologies if it's already been posted: http://freakonomics.com/2010/12/16/freakonomics-radio-do-more-expensive-wines-taste-better/
we had the 2006 Adanti Sagrantino di Montefalco at maialino last night. wonderful wine, full of life, tannins still present but tamed, seemed a bargain at $72. There are some other interesting finds on the wine list, you can do well with a couple of appetizers, pasta dishes and a well-priced bottle of wine.
I think THE iconic SF shoe is the rm williams chelsea. 3405 posts in Sator's thread. and going strong.
