1/2 bottle of '06 for my wedding anniversary at Bouchon Bistro. Coincidentally, it was also Thomas Keller's birthday, AND the 20th anniversary of Bouchon Bistro being open - meant to be! 06 is drinking very nicely.. black cherry balsamic reduction, stewed black plums, decayed purple flower petals, velvety and grainy tannins, beautiful mouthfeel. — a day ago
Excellent examples of wines PERFECT for pairing with food. They specialize in making a wine that is beautifully complex and layered, but when paired with dishes that focus in on 2 or 3 good ingredients, is an ingredient you realize, "Wow, I can't this with out it".
Elegant, supple, soft - meaty weight, thyme, raspberry reduction, red plum skin, clove. — a day ago
Absolutely stunning syrah from a fantastic grower. The hyde is rich and velvet, exhibiting notes of dried herb, nutmeg, dark cherries, smoked meat, and a touch of vanilla - paired with a 5 meat blended meatball, with a mint chimichurri (middle eastern flair). This wine with this pairing really accentuated the cinnamon notes in the food and wine. I could die happy in this combination. — a day ago
Being that I was around 2 years ago to see Courtney in crutches, this wine was especially funny to me because he got his inspiration from his unfortunate accident while biking. He is also a big Bordeaux wine fan, so this wine is a blend of Merlot, then Cabernet Franc, and a touch of petit verdot all from the Stag's Leap district. Drinks like a Napa version of Larcis Ducas - delicious. — 2 days ago
