Clearly much depends on ones climate and personal temperature tolerance.I wish the Smith's was more wearable or that I got darker shades and could use it in the early spring and fall. Alas, I ended up doing tans and olives thinking that fresco = summer. Live and learn.
Thanks, I realize that they come in a range of weights.The nice colors were what initially drew me to the Simth's. Was simply saying that the heavier weight Smith's fresco (and others, I would assume) wears quite warm and that all frescos are not equal in that respect.
Agreed, save the heavier weight frescos such as Smith's Finmeresco which I find wears very warm. With 20/20 hindsight, the few heavier frescos I have are the only cloths I regret having made up.
I liked the Edmind St John that I've had, though it's been a while.
Greg, just sent you an email. Please take a look and get back to me when you can. Thanks, Andrew
Had two bottles of 2013 Domaine Saint Prefert "Charles Giraud" Chateauneuf-du-Pape at BLT Steak last night and it was rockin'!! Gotta find some to cellar.
If you have access to a Brooks Brothers' corporate discount card, you can get 15% off the Alden shies they carry.
Anything with the Rothschild and Mondovi monikers will be sold at a hefty premium. That said, I have enjoyed several vintages but have not cellared it.
We are serving the 2013 Paul Lato Belle du Jour Chardonnay and the 2007 Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf with dinner and a 2011 Guiraud Sauternes with dessert. A Happy Thanksgiving to all!
