Freethought

Superposition Idaho 7 Double New England

Superposition from FREETHOUGHT, a
IPA in the DDH New England style. Delightful artwork. This beer is fairly heavy for the genre. It's unfiltered, which may be a factor. Bitter notes come through after an initial juice burst.

I love the canned wines and craft beers!

Chimère

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

The Chimère from Manfred Krankl of Sine Qua Non fame, and the Maurel brothers of Clos Saint Jean, is, appropriately, a beast. Cherry, blackcurrant, Christmas spice, violets and chocolate. Many elements combine to make a compelling wine that deserves attention over time. Indeed, when this bottle was initially opened, the prevailing thought at the table was that it would last months. A small tipple to check in, some time later, was tasted with our own resident chimera (well at least she sort of has the head of Lion element down) present. — 2 years ago

Vietti

Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Happy Thanksgiving! Pay no mind to the turkey-stalking cat in the background.
Loads and loads of tannins, high acid. Lighter and brighter than I was expecting—more like what I think of in a Barbaresco?. Crushed roses, tar, light oak, leather, prune, citrus peel, anise, cherry and cranberry. Wish I had another bottle to open in a few more years. From Flatiron Wines.

My daughters cat really doesn’t care what we are drinking. I had an 03 a while back. Was outstanding. Had to try one on my 14s. Doesn’t disappoint and thankfully 5 more are waiting downstairs. Wedding crashers is on. Pork tenderloin is cooking and this fella. Loving my Saturday night!! — 2 years ago

Agree, black cats (we've had two) don't really care what you drink, or do.

We need a movie night.

Domaine des Cavarodes (Etienne Thiebaud)

Pressé Côtes du Jura Savagnin 2017

Oh it’s just another Jura savagnin that I really like, no big deal. Smooth acids all the way; off-cold it’s better I think. Toby the cat is into it too, which is cool cos he’s normally an old-fashioned big red guy... — 2 years ago

Arcanum

Toscana Red Blend 2010

60% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Nose has spring rose, rain moistened red raspberry, black currant and fresh sage.

Palate has lightly tannic blackberry, wet leather, ripe black currant, cigar box, wet clay and tarry black cherry.

Paired with a long cooked Bolognese sauce over fettuccine. Decanted ~3hr, more time in the decanter would benefit. Future bottles can be 2022+

Happy Father's Day 2019 to all. Today I'm posting pictures of our kids, yes they are all furry, independent and somewhat self-interested. Two boys (8) and two girls (2), sisters, all rescued. They generally bring the utmost of joy to my life on a daily basis. It has been a rainy and relaxing day here, everyone is loving the slow pace of life today.

I think that Delectable needs to be able to tag cat+wine posts so that I can make a bookmark for felines.

Côte Rôtie Syrah 2013

Lyle Fass

Cat-Rotie. Gorgeous nose. Floral, feral, meaty, gamey, blackberry, lovely mineral and vivid. deep fruit. Palate is super juicy and elegant with lovely pure fruit and terrific freshness. Really fine tannins. 2013 is so good for Côte Rotie. Terrific mix of sweetness and gaminess. — 2 years ago

Trimbach

Alsace Riesling

It would be unwise to underestimate the quality and complexity of Trimbach’s entry level wines, particularly the Riesling. Racy salt-preserved lemon, Granny Smith apple, orchard blossoms, ginger and shimmering minerality are what define this wine in addition to its petrol-forward personality. What it might lack in textural richness it more than compensates for with lovely freshness and kinetic energy on the palate. Outstanding vintage. (Kittens not included) — 3 years ago
