Alden snuff penny for an 8.5C for $220 shipped. http://www.bensilver.com/Alden-Snuff-Suede-Penny-Loafer,9764.html
I had the '06 before and defended it in Manton's "ballsac" thread. I had the '08 recently and it was awful. Maybe it was just an off vintage but it was indefensible.Obviously wine stored in optimal conditions will age longer, for the most part. That said, this wine had been stored in a closet with cleaning supplies in a my mom's friend's house for over 10 years in a house with massive temperature fluctuations and still drank perfectly. I drank a few other bottles with her...
I hope it's better than my faux-bordeaux last night. Between the Greysac and that Rustenberg I'm going on a Bordeaux hiatus.
This one?
Last night 2007 Rustenberg John X Merriman, South African Bordeaux blend. Really tight when opened. Probably still too young and it opened up over the course of the evening but it tasted over-oaked and just not very good. Left burnt leaf finish that doesn't exist on the nose. Disappointing because it came highly recommended by a sommelier friend. Hopefully this weekend brings better juice.
+1. Hoping today....
Damn. No pic.
I tried this last night incorporating collard greens from my CSA that I needed to use. I boiled the collards and then mixed them in with some of their cooking water after the Shakshuka mixture had been cooking for a while. Turned out really good.
Trimbach is great and I love white wines with a little age. Nice.Cross-post from this weekend, Arcangelo Salice Salentino is delicious. I don't care that it's probably a little too fruit-forward. I really enjoyed it.
