    Kyle, just picked up a three pack each of Hurst Vineyard and Purple Pachyderm, both by Claypool. Mrs. Piob and me both have fond memories of the wine. [​IMG]

    just finished a bottle of 7 Deadly Zins '07. Remarkable wine for about $18 .. very bold taste and just kept getting better the more air it got.

    OK. Out at a wine bar "cougar hunting" tonight. Ran across a cool wine I want more of: 2007 Perrin Cairanne Peyre Blance (Cote du Rhone Villages). At last a 2007 Rhone that is both yummy and highly approachable now. $45/bottle restaurant price. Must kop.

    Will advise on success with cougarlicious possibilities later.


    Had a Perrin Vacqueyras tonight, 2007 les Christins. Cheap and cheerful at less than $30 even in Canadaland. Grenache-Syrah blend, very easy to drink - we polished off a bottle in no time... please report back on cougar-hunting successes...

    Veddy nice. Even better with a good decant, I've found.

    No successes. The only one remotely interested in me was there with another guy. She left. I got no digits. Wound up drunk texting an ex. So friggin' pathetic.

    Big pours into the glasses seemed to have opened it up nicely - I didn't have the fore-thought to open it earlier.

    Those of us with wives/kids must live vicariously through these sorts of exploits. I'm sure great success will come your way...[​IMG]

    About 3/4 of a bottle of wine each for Kyle and me, and then, about a dozen Hendricks and tonic each. So good, but not great or epic. [​IMG]

    Of course, the setting of Healdsburg over Xmas, the cozy restaurant for dinner, and the lounge at Hotel Healdsburg helped make it good too.

    About 3/4

    3 out of a possible 4 seems to be the "golden ratio" whenever Kwilk bros it up.
