Great Vintage Port tasting tonight.

Started with a Graham's 20 year tawny, followed by a 1969 Taylor Fladgate Colheita.

Moved on to the vintages next...a 2017 Cockburn, a 2016 Graham's, a 2000 Graham's, a 1990 Graham's Malvedos, and finished with a 1983 Dow.

All in all, a great evening.

The New War Against Wine

The New War Against Wine

Wine is under attack, says Wine Spectator editor and publisher Marvin R. Shanken. The biggest threat to the wine business today is an increase in U.S. tariffs on wines imported from Europe. It's time to stand up and be counted.

Another #birthday celebration calls for another wine. This time a #cabernetsauvignon from #southafrica we got at the Hong Kong @prowein_tradefair earlier this year.

South Africa was a lot of fun this year and looking forward to trying all the wines we brought back.

Celebrating a friend's birthday with a birth year port. This is a 1964 colheita (bottled in 2014).

A colheita is a single vintage port that is aged in wood (like a tawny) and bottled on demand.

Great dinner at Las Carboneras de Lu in Madrid. A multi course meal that included: Iberian ham, stuffed zucchini blossom, stuffed pasta shell, braised ribs, and various ice creams for dessert.
The wines included a still wine made from Pedro Ximenez (medium dry) which paired perfect with the ham. Next moved on to an old vines #garnacha from the Madrid DO, and finally a Rioja Reserva.
Great evening with great friends, food, and wine. Thanks to @vinosdemadrid for the recommendation!

Had a great time at @tailupgoat with @dismalscience

Bill, one of the owners and the beverage director, made sure we had some great wines for each of the delicious small plates we ordered.

We started with a sparkling wine from Spain , then a German riesling, then an Italian red, and finally a amaro made by @baltspiritsco

A great evening, food, wine, and company. Looking forward to my next visit.

Some dark fruit, good acidity and a hint of eucalyptus.

Sharing a bottle of Legacy Peak that we brought back China a couple years ago. This is a 2013 #cabernetsauvignon and has a great mix of red and black fruits. Hints of leather, very smooth tannins, and great body and tail.

The wine is named Kalavinka which is a creature from Buddhism that is part bird with a human head and sings extremely smoothly. I can certainly see why they named the wine after the Kalavinka.
