    I had only read up to CdP 2009 when I said to myself "Don't do it!" Just seems way too young to me, even though I have been known for infanticide especially with young Australian fruit bombs... Out here on a tropical island I just don't find myself drinking many reds anymore, well, I always was deeper into whites anyway. I was thinking about a Doenhoff Riesling tonight, but I had a headache all day, so I may leave that for tomorrow.

    Sierra Nevada Torpedo and a shot of Buffalo Trace for breakfast. Maybe a glass of sake to come.

    Summer weather in Seoul. Earlier it was soju at a BBQ. Now it's my own sangria w/ lotsa ice.

    Stefan, glad to learn you're also into fine wines. I love those Donnhoff rieslings. And with all the fish you must get in Hawaii, wow, what a treat. I just got back from a trip to the north of Italy and, in addition to paying a visit to Otzi the ice man mummy in Bolzano, tried to drink as much riesling as I could from the place that does it best (more or less, since Austria is around the corner). They're about half the price or less over there.

    Ooh..Buffalo Trace hits home!! We've been entertaining a lot late summer...that means my whites take a hit. No worries, as long as I find a 'co conspirator' to keep bourbon in the mix...

    Most enjoyable beer for me was in Germany
    But I know there is no way I can consume at one time 7 of the beers shown on Dave's cool picture on page 106 - would brag if I drank the 3 and consider that a meal
    tonight - Okunomatsu Tokubetsu Junmai w/ Shrimp bento

    Wait - does that mean you think Austrian rieslings are better than the Germans? Actually, I like both, grew up with dry German rieslings, ventured a bit into the off-dry and sweet world, but my favorites usually are still nice dry ones. And the Austrians have really done an excellent job with those over the past 2 decades (as hard as it is to admit Austrians doing anything well ). Reminds me, I am out of Gruener Veltliner which, interestingly, is easier to get here than any dry riesling.

    Passed on the Doenhoff again, feeling more like beer tonight, so it's Idiot IPA for me right now. First time I had it, very hoppy, almost overpoweringly (is that a word?) so.

    Ken, I never was sure what serving size that referred to. The times where I could have 7 pints are also long behind me...
