I find that more often than not people overcook their corn. The perfect corn is crisp and has a good snap but people overcook it leaving it water logged from boiling it too long or dry due to grilling too long. Corn cooks rather quickly.Sunday = Penfolds Grange.
D'Lynn Proctor told me to drink the '96. Will be slices of sous vide Snake River wagyu on a bed of duxelle with first harvest corn done elote style on my Traeger along with some sliced veggies given the Traeger treatment too.
So is this a Walmart wine? Pick it up with a bag of Funyuns?View attachment 1392840
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc. Deep-pocketed owner but mostly left to do their own thing, in the this-goes-up-to-11 style. Not a Booth wine.
JONATA wineries' estate in Ballard Canyon is a 586-acre property, with 84 acres of vines, including more than 11 different varieties planted, along with high-acid experimental Greek plantings like Xinomavro and Assyrtiko.www.forbes.com
If you can find them where you are, I think the best SA/USA collaboration to date is Vilafonté.A Stellenbosch Rust en Vrede and Napa Silver oak cooperation. Kind of reminds of an northern Rhône syrah. What do you know.

The 2015 MV de Compostella spent 12 months in barrel before each variety was blended, then another 12 months in barrel including 33% new French oak. It has a beautifully defined bouquet of blackberry, burnt toast, brown spice and light pencil lead aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh blackberry and bilberry fruit, a killer line of acidity and the sense of symmetry that imbues the best MVs I have tasted over the years. It remains one of the Cape’s finest red wines. (NM)(8/2018)

Perhaps the best vintage of Compostella to date, the 2015 vintage is a blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. It showcases a beautiful elegance and herbal edge in waves of cigar tobacco and blackcurrant leaf, with a grounded fruit core of blackberry, plum and cassis. Additional notes of leather and German chocolate cake lend depth and intrigue, while the finish exhibits a masterful evolution between all these components with each sip. Well-structured and superbly balanced, it boasts gripping tannins and ample acidity to frame the ripe fruit. A beauty that should mature masterfully. *Top 100 Cellar Selection of 2018* (LB)(4/2018)
