In the spirit of our new friend, champagneinhand, I thought we should start another CT inspired thread, namely: "What are you drinking tonight?" Or something like that.

I'll go first. Tonight, the wife is out of town, so I decided to go for a filet mignon and give the kids steak (tube steak that is) as well. About a year ago, I got a ton of older BV cabs from a guy selling off his entire cellar (long story). Tonight, I had the '98 BV Rutherford. Even though this does not have a great pedigree (about $18 on release) and it is from a terrible year (El Nino), it was pretty damned good.

The wife is gone all through the week. Anyone want to join me and my two boys in Philly for dinner? Only so much 'ninja' and Spongebob conversation is palatable....

In "France" at Epcot last night had a wonderful meal and paid $46 for a 2009 Jean-Luc Colombo CdR Les Abeilles (CT community average, ... wait for it ... $11).

OK defintiely caught me on the right night. Usually it's ice water but had dinner at Sonoma Grill before the Pens game (3-2 over Toronto even with the pre-Crosby blahs) with a friend & his wife. We paid the corkage to bring our own - '01 Don Melchor & '01 Far Niente. Back to reality tonight...

'07 Usseglio CdP. It's rather tasty. Good to drink over 4-5 hours.

Team dinner at Olgebay Resort last night:

2004 Opus One
2005 Opus One
2008 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection

Did the Opus One's side-by-side. Bordeaux-like with nice balance of fruit and veggie components. Initially preferred the '05, but the '04 settled down after about 30 minutes and was slightly better in my opinion.

The Caymus was a massive fruit monster with tons of flavors and smooth as a baby's rear.

Pretty damn good night!

Tonight: Testing out the 09 Educated Guess to see if its a good enough ringer for the summer Big Ass American Cab bash. Trying some new things for that as well. Hobel and possibly the recently arrived Maybach 09 (Materium now has a sister wine: Amoneous. Cant wait to try that)

Tomorrow night: Martinelli Zio Tony to start and my buddy and I are doing 2005 Harlan vs 2005 Schrader RBS. Should be a good night.

DT you made my mouth water reading your post! The baby reference on the '08 Caymus was correct in more ways than one. I had it right after release & it's an infant. I have some in the cellar now & am trying to make it to 2018. But it's in my living will that it can be administered thru IV in case I don't get there....

Banfi Brunello '06 in "Italy" at Epcot, $13 for a small plastic cup shaped like a wine glass. Reasonable tariff given the bottle price both in and outside PA, although there are certainly better values out there. Accessible now, balanced medium body, quite enjoyable. Am now two for two on '06s and looking forward to more.

In Youngstown with BiLoH and we've been tasting since about 4 PM.
1. Fakesco Tellus syrah 2009.
2. Chat. Bellefont-Belcier Bordeaux 2000.
3. Leal & Anza Rioja 2001
4. Flora Springs Trilogy 2005
The Bordeaux was my clear favorite, but the Trilogy is drinking great.

Big party tonite at an Italian BYO - started out with Ninfa Ripana Passerina 2010, then Barbera Monleale 2006, the Mastrobeardino Aglianico 2008. Barbera was the clear star.

2007 Larkmead Vineyards "LMV Salon" red Bordeaux blend.

Still a baby but with a couple hours of air time a beautiful wine.

Border bleed. I picked this one up in DE a year or two ago, 2006 Chateau De Segries Lirac Cuvee Reserve. It went well with a home BBQ Sunday evening.

Props to you Red. After the PS-athon on Sat. I am on the bench for a few days. Maybe could have been lured to pinch hit with a Sequum though...

Opened two past Chairman's last night at daughter's birthday dinner, Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Herrenweg de Turckheim 2006 and Ponzi Pinot Noir Reserve 2006.

The Riesling was meh unfortunately. I bought a bottle about two and a half years ago and it was really good and I rated it 4. Then went back and bought a couple more. Ended up taking one of them back as it was undrinkable. Last night's was my last and I think it was starting to oxidize, was more gold in color than I recall and the finish was a little off.

The Ponzi on the other hand continued to impress especially at the $35 Chairman's price. I've been drinking through my stash over the last couple months and am now down to my last bottle :-( Am actually considering picking up one or two of the '08's at the regular $60 price.
