Domaine Wine Storage - DC Thread

#1 Post by J. Singleton » June 26th, 2013, 8:11 am

When talking with Berg, I think the idea of creating our own thread for the Saturday drinking crew came up. Seems to be a good way to keep in touch of when people will be at Domaine, if we have any theme ideas for what to open, food options, etc. I don't think I'm going to be able to make it in on Saturday, and with the following weekend being kind of a holiday weekend, that's out as well. Maybe we can plan something for 7/13. [cheers.gif]

Indeed we did talk about it, and I promptly forgot to start a thread...

I'll be up there this Saturday with a couple other folks...we'll see you again on the 13th Jeb!

We'll probably just grab the usual meat and cheese from Calvert, bring some of our leftover wine from Friday wine night (if there's any, one of the bottles is '09 Greer, really looking forward to that), and probably open a CdP and some form of white...that Huet hit the spot last week [cheers.gif]

Responding so that the thread stays in my list of posts, but I might not be back for a few weeks.

I plan on being there Saturday afternoon, moving some stuff over from WWW. I think one of those boxes has some Carlisle, so opening one of those could help prepare folks for Monday's release.

The check was bittersweet. Hate letting go of the Le Cache, but i see it's going to a good home. I still have to invoice you for the "labor" part of the day. The check just covered the merchandise. [cheers.gif]

Get home in one piece.

FYI, the '11 Geyserville, while a bit primary at this point, is awesome. Might have to open one on the 13th. I must buy a case of this to enjoy as it ages.

Ok, for Saturday I think I'll open a Chard (might try one of the '11 KB Chards, or a '10 Kings Farm) and either an '09 Booker Oublie or an '09 Lillian, plus any leftovers from Friday night [cheers.gif]

I was going to hit Calvert for some meat and cheese, but if anyone wants anything else, bring it!

'09 Calera Mills Pinot
'05 Clos Saint Michel CdP

Still planning on opening the KB Chard too...not sure on the Booker/Lillian with all the leftovers I'm bringing!

I'll see folks tomorrow [cheers.gif]

Sorry man...too far across town to make it now. Next time, with the baby. I have extracted an ironclad committment from my wife. Two weeks from now would work great for us, and I'd open a couple of bottles of good stuff. (Not around next Saturday).

Good wines today. Really random group. I can't believe how many whites we had. Really interesting comparing the '10 Ceritas Heintz and the '11 KB 116. Add the Sancerre to the mix and yet another dimension.

Any thoughts on what might be opened up this weekend? I know we talked about a big dog night, but seeing as all my bid dogs are there, I won't be able to get the any airtime to breathe. Soooo, undecided on what to bring. Maybe a Kutch since the offer just came out this week. I think I have some of those at home. Not sure what else I'll open. Something good though.

Yeah, a heavy hitter day requires planning, as all mine are pretty young and I'd want to open them up the night before or at least early morning...probably easiest to just grab them from my locker the week before and take them home.

Thinking maybe another Bedrock white. And the Rivers-Marie Cab release is next week...got an '09 Panek that I could decant early morning. Or there's a lone bottle of '03 Clos St Jean Combe des Fous CdP that's been looking at me funny, and might have to go...

I'm sure I'll have a couple open bottles from Friday to bring again too [cheers.gif]

Ooooops, 2008. That's the one that was in discussion. Too many choices. We're going to end up with ten wines and not enough people to drink them. Man, what a problem. [cheers.gif]

I'm think:

08 Keating GIII
?? Kutch ?
and then a mystery wine

Plus good foods from C/W

That's fine... just leave me your key to the OWC locker. I "promise" I'll only take out my wines. champagne.gif

Just had the '11 Bedrock Kick Ranch. Pretty good juice I'd say. Maybe I'll add a white to the mix as well. Too many damn choices.
