I'm not even gonna tell you how much I paid for the bottle, but I decided to break it out with a pan-seared skirt steak and simple reduction sauce made with the same wine. Steak was great, wine sucked. Tannic, not really ready to drink but it probably never would be. I try not to make too much of his numbers but Parker gave it a 92 and I just don't get it. Just couldn't find the fruit or the pleasure in it. . . . Back to my favorite everyday red, Marietta Cellars Old Vine Red.
    It's sad that bottle sucked. Had some Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieux Telegraphe 2006 that was the "bees knees" not too long ago. I'm not really into wine(thank God for my bank acct!) but do enjoy a good bottle with company every now and again.

    As this is Korea, tonight we were are a BBQ (beef + all the seasonal side dishes) and the drink was 막걸리 (usually written as makkoli or magkeolli), a Korean rice brew. It's great and costs about $1 USD per 750ml bottle, or usually $3 in a restaurant. http://kr.promotion.yahoo.com/korea1...k.html?intl=sg ... Back home now, I'm having 매실주 (maeshil ju), the less sweet Korean version of Japanese 梅酒 (umeshu) or plum wine. Love this stuff too, and as a matter of fact I've made a batch that supposedly should be ready around Christmas. I'm having the 매실주 with ice and fizzy water - just like 'umeshu soda' which you always find in Japanese izakayas. Check http://www.myepikorean.com/2008/05/k...maesil-ju.html

    I doubt makkoli is available at all in the US, if that's where you live, while I'm sure Japanese umeshu is. Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried these drinks?

    Sorry about your loss, but that is a worthy dram to remember a friend.
