2008 Eagles Trace CS. Got better the longer it was open. Mid palate of full flavored dark fruit, licorice and maybe some cedar. Tannins were very smooth. Long finish. If you got some from TSO ($30), you'll be pleased you did. Paired well with a nice rib eye, sauteed mushrooms, red potatoes and oven roasted brussel sprouts.

Last night, So Be It 2009 Pinot Noir.

BSevern is right on this one. Pretty stellar deal at the 6 for 49.99 Woot price. Might be the first decent under $10 PN I've tried.

2008 Castlebank Reserve Red Blend with rib-eye steaks. Mighty tasty after about 45minute decant.

Also fixed some Mediterranean marinated roasted peppers. These are the bomb! If you like savory roasted peppers you should try these.

Didn't realize it was a re-run 'till Klez pointed it out.

Last night finished off Swillies latest Verdejo and some '07 PF PN and a bit of the Urraca Primera from a couple days ago with Venison, Salmon and trimmings on the grill.

2009 Pedroncelli Petite Sirah. Damn this is good. Totally overperforms for $16, and better than some $25 PS I've tasted.

Gotta admin the '07 PF PN is outstanding for the paltry $5/bottle admission fee.

You can call tso and ask. If they have any left they will sell it to you for the price it was sold when it was "live," including the FS if minimum is ordered. It has worked for me.

2008 Vecchia Cantina Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Leone d'Oro. Had a couple of bottles over the last two years, which were so-so at best. Finally, this is hitting its stride and now I wish I had more. Went well with a pasta, green pepper and italian sausage dish, but was also very good by itself.

Estate it is (the stew isn't very heavy.) NB: tastes kind of reductive and the cork slipped out with NO effort whatsoever.

Haven't decided on a bottle for the cheesecake yet.

You can't go wrong with that port. Do you always cook like that or was this for a special occasion?
