Was given a bottle as a thankyou gift the other day, and wanted the forum opinion on it:

Domane Wachau
Terrassen Federspiel - 2007
Gruner Veltliner

Good enough to win over someone who only drinks red?

good enough to win over somebody who only drinks reds? I'm not sure. But, I have had this wine and not only is the wine excellent, but it's hard to think of a better match with great seafood.

Actually I woke up feeling perfect. Still a little wobbly, but no headache. Ahhhhh, youth.

BTW, for the record, while I was fall-down drunk last night, Pio was just riding a slight buzz. We were matching drink for drink.

Had a bunch of good/great wines on Christmas Day night, but the standout was:



Excellent now, should get better as well.

It was a marvelous time. I was wrong this morning, though. I woke up feeling perfect. Still a bit drunk maybe. An hour later, I had the worst headache of my life while I was at work. It suckkkkkked.

Anyway, last night we went to a decent little place in Healdsburg and got a Hirch 07 pinot, which was described to us as "complex" but was really just a nice, non-complex, classic Sonoma pinot. Followed that up with a wine that wasn't on the list, and the waiter said was very nice. Claypool Cellars, IIRC. A RRV pinot, Green Hill to be specific. This one was indeed good. Very good actually. Surprised us all as we ate. BTW, the duck confit was ridiculous. Served with blackened brussel sprouts and pommes puree and brandy cream sauce. The confit was great, and they gave you two legs. Even for a huge fatass like me it was too much food for a single entree.
Then we went to the Hotel Healdsburg Lounge (really, a pretty chill place and probably the coolest upscale bar hangout in Healdsburg if you're ever in the area) and had what seemed like 12 Hendricks and Tonics, but I think it was only 7 or 8. At that point, I was terribly drunk. Then, Pio gave me my graduation present! A bottle of Stefania 2007 Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot. I'm really looking forward to it. There were only 46 cases produced, so basically this wine is impossible to get. He also gave me a wine from his native Canadia, a 2004 Vidal Icewine. I will enjoy this bottle the next time I make a foie torchon at home, or with a really nice bleu. His generosity is noted and will not be forgotten. Not only did he get me drunk and give me a badass graduation gift, but he is a great guy and was a lot of fun to hang out with.
Oh yeah, sometime during the night, we got onto his cellartracker on his blackberry. Let's just say, the guy is a very lucky man.

Greatly enjoyed your post there, K. Glad it was a good time! Did you have to cook for Pio with the hangover!? ~ H

Nope. I'm still on the prep crew (actually, now I AM the prep crew) so I work around 8 am until 430 or so, give or take a couple hours either direction depending on the day. They're at Cyrus now, and Pio is getting the grand wine pairing rather than the regular. Hopefully soon he'll come post about it.
post #1349 of 18177
Gotcha. Sorry for being out of touch. Funny, I am not surprised that Pio is going with the grand pairing. Dunno why. Still had to prep hungover though -- sorry.
