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.
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.
