Had a Monastrell Cab blend earlier but I forgot to take a pic. Wanted to point out a new thing drinking wine has done. Last week after a glass or two I ate some of my kids gummie bears. Now after a drink I eat a big handful of gummie bears and can’t stop at just one. Wine already hits my sleep a bit and now I have a double whammie with all this sugar…

Thoughts on wine with smoked brisket? Will be homemade coleslaw, Hawaiian buns to build sliders with, caramelized onions, homemade horsey sauce, smoked gouda cheese. These are good friends, as in the guy who's liquor collection I'm inheriting, and he routinely pours me drams from thousand dollar bottles. Get crazy and pour a Grange? I have aged Quilceda Creek, aged Dariouche, maybe my mag of 2016 Booker Oublie?

Alright, let down by my wine brothers...

I've got a 2002 Dariouche, a 2012 Booker Ripper 24 month extended aging, a 2004 Pax Syrah, and a 2010 Quilceda Creek set out and we'll decide as things progress.

I would say Grange but in might be overpowered by the smoked brisket. Any big Zins? I know they probably aren't expensive, but I would say to match a little smokiness with a Malbec.

Save the good stuff for after the meal.
