Along with a bottle for this weekend's woot, I have also been graced with a bottle for this coming Wednesday's offer. While I could simply hoard this very tasty looking wine all to myself, my drunken musings would make much less sense on these boards than the random musings of thousands of bay area wooters about their take on the wine.

Therefore I declare a spontaneous wine rattage event at my place in the south bay (address to be distributed via PM) on Tuesday night at 6:30 pm.

I'll provide a main dish (yet to be decided, suggestions welcomed) You come bearing sides/snacks/dessert.

I will of course provide the wine, possibly others from my cellar as well.

Please RSVP by 24 Hours prior to the event to ensure proper amounts of tastiness to go around.

2014 - 20 Btl. Fjellene (10 bot), Urraca Chard (10 bot)
Last purchase: 5/3/14

2013 - 75 btl. 2012 - 98 btl. 2011 - 112 btl. 2010 - 30 btl.

I wish I'd known which was which, or I'd have been able to come AND bring a second rat bottle. As it is, I cold come and bring a good comparison bottle instead, knowing how it drank tonight.

Actually, i still have half a bottle left, as only three or four of my friends tasted it. It's currently back in bottle, but could keep some to taste every day following Might last 5 days in bottle, though coud;d be stretching things.. What do you think?

PM me with your varietal in case it differs from mine (quite possible).

I am in, of course. Shoot me an email with a desired style or flavour profile of the sides. I don't want to bring Buffalo wings to go with a big ol' Cab Sauv!

How late do you think you'll be running? Getting to peninsula by 6:30 isn't really likely for me.

I'm sure we could move it to 7 or even 7:30 if people can make that. I'm in Santa Clara, where would you be coming from?

Walnut Creek, I don't think I'd make the start anyway, wouldn't want to try with traffic. Probably count my out but I'll consider it.

think Cab Sauv, not big, but softer. not Cab. Sophistimacated red. Best clue I can give without saying.
I'm quite likely to make it. Klez, can I steal a sofa overnight!?

what wine did you want apart from the dessert? (Buena vista to come later)

Anyone want Heitz port, or Ty Caton Dessert wine BTW at good prices (like 50% off)? I can bring and barter.

OK, sounds good. I should have couch space available unless my roommate is planning on needing both that night.

The dessert wine should be plenty. I'm full up on the storage myself. You should ask Sparky if he wants to have his Pig Stai sent down with you on the way back.
