1992 Dehlinger Syrah Estate- USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (7/6/2009)
Popped the 1992 Estate Syrah last night with grilled rack of lamb. Perfectly mature and showing all of its glory. Full of secondary Syrah characteristics, white pepper, sous-bois, blackberry, and a bit of dark chocolate. Full mid-palate and a long satisfying finish. A perfect match for the lamb. (92 pts.)
Todd, I agree with you. When I was a little kid, my mother got her hair done at a “beauty parlor”. Then these places started using the French word for hair dresser “coiffeur”. I remember asking my mother what’s the difference between a “hair dresser” and a “coiffeur”. My father’s quick answer was “20 bucks!”
A friend of mine was in Paris eating dinner by himself. So even though he knows no French, he was listening to the sound of the conversation of a group of people at the next table. In the middle of a long conversation in French, one of them said (in English) “It has that . . . I don’t know what.”
I guess stuff always sounds cooler in another language, n’est-ce pas?
