Yes, sort of, it is a different vineyard "Gary's Vineyard" but it is an effort by two Garys: Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni and the clones are the same as at Pisoni Vineyard.

lol! The liquor stores here have little imagination. Mostly pilsners for the red necks and rig workers, something they can pound 2 or 8 in quick succession, to get the glow going before the get back to town/hotel. I've lost count of how many 24 pack boxes I have seen fly out the windows of crew trucks! As for the liquor stores, if your lucky you can find McEwans, Newcastle, but as usual tonight is Guiness. I wish there was a micro brewery close by...

Kalaeb - sorry from the land of Lienenkugel's. Most of their stuff is average at best. The scotch ale is good and I really like the Oktoberfest (very smoky this year), the winter lager is decent but I couldn't care less about the rest of them.

Their classic beers, the ones they have been making for 100+ years, are all some of the best of their variety. They have added some other beers and ciders in the past years that aren't as good. The Taddy Porter, Yorkshire Stingo, Pale Ale, Oatmeal Stout, Nut Brown (again, the brown ale I measure all others against. Unbelievably good.), India Ale, and Imperial Stout are all great. Some of their ciders, organic offerings, and others are...not in the same class.

The Young's you will commonly find is the Double Chocolate Stout. Very good and not overly sweet.

Johnny.B.Good
02-19-2012, 12:09 AM
Drinking the "Organic Apple Cider" right now. Good, not great. Very dry. Cider always sounds good to me when I am at the store, but rarely do I end up really liking it (at least not in any great quantity). I also got a bottle of the "Pure Lager." Will try that next.

Tonight: Turley Fredrick's Vineyard Zin
Last Night: 2009 Liberte Cabernet Sauvignon -- Pretty dang good for $7.99 from Trader Joes. One of the guys that runs this label also does Sinor-Lavallee. Now THAT is some awesome Pinot if you ever see it! And WAY Cheap for what's in the bottle.

From the weekend:

2002 Volker Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon
2002 L'Aventure Optimus.

The previous Optimus that I had was not great. This one was much better. Although the wine had lost some of its fruit, it was still very good. It also still had richness that the previous Optimus did not have.

The 2002 Volker Eisele is aging beautifully. Although it was a little oaky at first, over the course of the evening, the oakiness dissipated. It is elegant, smooth and balanced.

And there was 2003 German Auslese Riesling but I was lame and forgot to note the maker. Very typical for an Auslese as far as flavor and sweetness, but somewhat lacking in acidity. Good, but not great.

Brought a nice Bruendlmayer Austrian Riesling 2005 to a party last night, very good dry wine in great shape for drinking right now. Perfect fish wine. Also a 2001 Heyl zu Herrnsheim Pettenthal Auslese. Good, but not quite up to expectations, sort of in-between phase, not as much fruit as a younger one and not yet enough complexity like an older one. But that's still complaining on a high level... Never got to trying the Zin I brought (2007 Ridge Geyserville).

So, looks like it will be water tonight.

No,yes. Some good friends over for dinner is always special, sort of. Especially if they appreciate what they are drinking.

I was lucky enough to buy a case of Lafite and a case of LaTour, 1990, as futures in 1991. Paid 650.00 per case.

That is why I will drink most booze on the rocks - lol. Actually Vodka Grapejuice sounds pretty good.

In the last week I have broken out two Malbec's - Tikal 2010 and a Mapema 2009. These two bottles were my first foray into $20+ bottles of Malbec. These were excellent wines however I feel they really have more of a Cab profile than what I had come to know as Malbec's flavor profile from cheaper wines. Is this the norm for upper end Malbec?
I have to say Chakana is actually my favorite Malbec so far which is around $10-12. My preggers wife actually got upset last night that I am not drinking the cheaper stuff. What can I say, I was making a great ribeye and needed a good wine to go with it.
