This is such a wonderful pour! Pics and more detailed notes to come in the Wine Thread.

OH and Pio you're right...if Chard was my official cross over from red to white, it's the Torrontes thay's keeping me here...that and a good Vionger

We're really been enjoying Fire Block this last year too. Both Grenache and Shiraz. Incredible how old those vines are in Oz! 1923 I think?

Not sure about the Shiraz but it says that the Grenache was planted in 1926.

We only have the Grenache at my job right now but I'd love to try the Shiraz.

The first day of my wine class, my teacher told us that women need to be afraid of Viognier and guys are going to love it. He said it was so easily drinkable that it was known as the "panty dropper," so ladies, if you see a guy order it, don't drink too much, and guys, order as many bottles as she'll drink.

Love Vigonier.

My discomfort with Bud is that it seems to in every way be a beacon for mediocrity and dullness. Bud is the beer of getting by. It is a thing that you do. It's not something you enjoy, not something that adds to your life and inspires you to go looking for more and better life -- rather Bud seems to inspire people to have another Bud. This, on a philosophical level, saddens me greatly. The things in my life elevate the moments of life, not merely help me get through them. Now it seems you really enjoy your Bud. If so, you are the first to ever express that feeling to me, and if that is true than I wish you well and good health. But I believe you are in the very great minority. ~ H

Made a nice dinner, seared Skate with lemon and butter and then some figs stuffed with gorgonzola, Italian parsley, walnuts that's baked and then served with prosciutto.

Consumed with this, un regalo de mis amigos Mexicanos:

This stuff sure packs a punch. I am so not used to higher ABV beers.

I've always liked that style of cork screw. I use "The Rabbit", it was a re-gift from my GF's grandfather a few years ago. Way too big and complicated, but I must admit that pulling the cork out is nearly effortless.


Update: Sam Adams Octoberfest is on hand.

How is this years version? Last year was pretty decent but two years ago it was horrible.
