Robert A. Alfert, Jr., was right

#1 Post by Neal.Mollen » June 8th, 2019, 7:02 am

Not that he isn't always, but this 2014 Lanessan is pretty good stuff. I am not sure that I would open many bottles at this point; flannel tannins will resolve over a few years and make this wine much more enjoyable to drink, but this combines enough flesh to satisfy most "modern" wine lovers, enough guts to seduce those who pine for the good old days, and at $16, is priced as a steal for both camps. Sorry I got around to trying it so late, and hope that when the next TW 20% off coupon arrives my local store still has some quantity.

Good to know. Given your feelings about Sociando Mallet (I recall you once posted a photo of asparagus as a tasting note for SM), I take it the Lanessan is veggie free?

And, I thought Robert was left?

Not a fan of green wine. I am a fan of trad bdx, and I'd say this hits the mark.

Robert is like Atticus Finch, a lonely voice for liberal values in the swampy south.

Lanessan is always a fantastic value. I guess the subtext here is quality/style variation based on the vintage?

Robert has been in mourning because he fears Lanessan has gone over to the dark side and has extolled the 14 as a last of the breed. Whether he is right about that remains to be seen

Oh, so one Robert retires and another Robert decides he's the voice of Bordeaux now. GREEEEEAAAAAAT.

Alfert is man and myth. Country wrapped in Boss. Humble mired in hubris. A walking, talking enigma. An enigma wrapped in mystery. A deer slayer and purveyor of foie gras; a dog fanatic. A liberal voice of reason in the right-wing South. An inherent contradiction of sorts.

But in all things Lanessan, he’s knows his sh*t. This wine is excellent.

Disregard his palate and prose on all else.

Glad this one hit the mark, Counselor.

Just got back to this thread.
Wow, the Lanessan family schtick got upgraded to a Lannister thingy and expanded the GOT wine realm. Nicely done.

OK then, Ollena Tyrell AKA Olenna Redwyne(google it) was the killer winemaker in Westeros. Her blend for Joffrey was breathtaking. No way Sir Jamie had a hand in that, but Littlefinger on the other hand. All it took was 10cc and The Things We Do For Love played out again.

I hear he meets the height requirements, but lacks the intellectual power.

On the other hand, he did mention that one time he took a donkey and a honeycomb into a brothel, so he's got that going for him.

So, sure, let's go with that.

What is man, when you come to think upon him, but a minutely set, ingenious machine for turning, with infinite artfulness, the fine red wine of Shiraz into urine?

I want your life!

One that is so perfectly tuned and minutely set that something as slight as this thread could render me distressed.

I’m almost inspired enough to pop a 2016 again just so I can heap doctrinaire criticism on Bouard, apropos or not.

Hey Robert, now that you have reached vaulted status, can we still hang out?

Seriously, this is a hilarious thread!
So shines a good deed in a weary world!

Charlie, you are the true country squire. My favorite redneck friend. I’m just a Poser. I mean really, who else on this Board but you owns a dirt farm!?! And walks around in Gucci hightops ;)

Counselor’s canonization of my golden tongue for the AFWE palate of thin and weedy, prompted me to pop yet another 2014, to satiate the needs of the unwashed masses. Enjoyed over two nights. It really is excellent. And Total Wine seems to have a rather endless supply. I clear them out, circle back weeks later, and voila, there is more.

I have another coupon, so may have to swing by.
