A half bottle or a little less over dinner is about as much as is good for me, though I only weigh about a buck forty-five, so that hampers me.
Also, last night was a 2008 Davis Family Russian River Valley Pinot. This is the first RRV pinot that I've tasted and really got a clear idea of that allspice/chinese five spice and cherry cola flavor people always note. Its not too boozy, balanced, and made well enough, but I'm not the biggest fan. Very primary and fruity with a fair amount of oak even at 4 years old. I think a bottle of wine like this is nice from time to time, but this is exactly the kind of Pinot Noir I wish there was less of. Then again the fact that it was 98 outside yesterday may have influenced my perception of this wine, but I wanted it to go with the lamb.Edited by Quatsch - 6/26/12 at 7:43am
