Happy Father's Day - whatcha drinkin'?

#1 Post by Sc0tt F!tzger@ld » June 16th, 2019, 12:54 pm

Waiting for the rain to arrive here in Big D. Got a pork shoulder smoking on the Big Green Egg, the U.S. Open on TV, and sitting here pondering what to open tonight. Thinking maybe a Littorai PN with a few years on it. What's everyone else drinking?

And Happy Father's Day to all you pops out there!

Went with my boys birth years, 1996 Bruno Giacosa Riserva Falletto and the 1998 Giacosa Le Rocche del Falletto. Both decanted @ 3:30...The '96 is going to be special!! I'm looking forward to following it throughout the night. The '98 is no slouch either. Both should pair well with grilled lamb chops w/a rosemary dijon marinade. Chilling now with a 2000 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles catching the end of the US Open.

Watching Inspector Montalbano alone (2 year old finally asleep), eating pizza, and drinking a bottle of 1976 Bischöfliches Priesterseminar Wiltinger Kupp Auslese. It's a stunner!

My eating and drinking plans for Father’s Day were dialed back this year. Last night I had joined Kirk Grant, Jim Anderson and others for an epic vertical tasting of 13 vintages of Patricia Green Etzel Block Pinot Noir, followed by an enjoyable blind tasting and meal. Thanks to all for a great five hour evening.

Despite my feeble protests, my son smoked trout for our dinner which we just finished enjoying alongside stuffed clams and some sides. Glad he persisted as the trout was perfectly brined, low- temp cooked and smoked. A couple of glasses of 2016 Ravines Dry Riesling provided a very good match to the meal. FWIW, Riesling and smoked trout might be “a pairing”.

Nice Father’s day weekend for me!

Slathering some chicken breasts with a bourbon BBQ sauce on the grill and popped a '17 Kelley Fox Freedom Hill Pinot Blanc. Got calls from both kids (daughter is due with our 1st grandbaby any minute). Life is good in the 'hood.

  • 2012 Littorai Pinot Noir The Haven - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (6/16/2019)
    Decanted. Not a lot on the nose, but eventually coaxed out some black tea and dark cherries. This struck me as fruit forward and feels like it should sit another 3-4 years before drinking. Resolved tannins with a medium finish. (91 pts.)

A Flannery Hanger with an excellent 2012 EMH Black Cat! The Black Cat had an enticing nose of dark fruit and cassis. Red-blue fruit on entry, nice earthiness and structure mid-palate and a slight touch a pepper on the smooth finish. The nose and touch of pepper had me hooked! The bottle did not last long. Well done Merrill. [cheers.gif]

After an exhausting weekend of kids' baseball (albeit culminating in a championship), it was a 2008 Mayacamas merlot with ribeye steak leftovers. In a very nice place now. One of the best New World merlots I've ever had. Some sex appeal but also quite structured. Cab masquerading as merlot.

Dad loves Pommard. the 2010 Vincent Girardin Pommard Grands Epenots which I decanted for 8 hours or so, was very nice indeed. A certain meaty feel on the palate that is very attractive to me, it has lots of secure plum and dark cherry fruit at the base with bits of earth and cedar around it. Should have a long life given the long aeration I gave it. Do continue to love the focus and purity of the red 2010 vintage. Dad was a very happy camper.

2016 Limerick Lane 1910 Block Zin with some grilled burgers was bomb.

I had a 2014 Immortal Estate Slope and it had Hidden Ridge cork [wow.gif]. Must have removed the labels and relabeled with the new brand. The wine was pretty awesome. Textbook hillside Napa Cab and for $95 its quite a bottle. Mr. Parker pre-retirement gave it a 97. Seems worthy of that score...

Very nice. Tight at first taste, but decanted and let it sit for about an hour. Opened up nicely.
We had tried the 2014 Immortal Impassable Mountain last year on a trip to Napa. Have 4 bottles of it -- have not opened any of those. From what I recall of that one, it was amazing.

Started the evening with a small pour of Russell's Reserve Single Barrel, while grilling baby back ribs and NY Strips. Decanted a 2015 Quivet Cellars Kenefick Ranch, it was very good, and still pumping out dark fruits, and spice. As it opened up some tannin and acid become apparent, but this is still such a rich cab, which is a treat. Saved some for tonight, and it hardly lost any steam, always a nice thing.
