AUCTION: EMH Magnum 2007 Black Cat Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

AUCTIONS ARE NOW LIVE!!! Open until 8:00 PM PST - bid early, bid often! Because there is no revenue share for participants in BerserkerDay, the auctions are a generous effort by those participants to raise money that otherwise would be 'required' as a revenue share model. This way the offers given to the folks who show up are maximized in their value to those making the purchases

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?

This puts no money in my pocket, folks, but it takes a very adored baby out of my cellar. I have sold 750s for $150, sometimes $175. Maybe I am a crook! This will leave me with only 2 of the magnums of the 2007.

I am making Jacques Pepin's beef in red wine...stewing in the oven since a lull around 3:00. The wine it is stewing in? Black Cat (leftovers), of course.

Ok, carry on.

Deal! Last year, the gentlemanly Chuck Miller took the auction, I hand delivered it to Seattle, and we had a fantastic dinner with all kinds of wines. No losers, there.

This is my go to stew recipe! The idea of making a composed stew that separates the meat from the vegetables is the only way to go. Those cipollini onion, mushrooms, and carrots cooked with pancetta are so delicious I sometimes just make them as a side dish.

Unfortunately, the bid is too rich for my blood, my wife would kill me if I won this bottle! even though it looks amazing.

Great that you know that recipe. I actually usually lose my energy and just cook the beef in the wine with the garlic and onions. Not so bad. Yes, someone just called me and said wow...cooking with Black Cat. I have leftovers from having guests share glasses with me, and I put them back in bottle in the fridge. They do quite well. This is a blend of 2009, 2011, 2014, I think.

$300 and we'll drink it at Carg's pig roast in the beautiful Santa Rita Hills. Merrill, hopefully you'll be able to join us, although I must warn you that you'll meet some very weak men. [cheers.gif]
Cheers, Peter
