I'm not sure what qualifies as an aged Zin for this, but we don't have much aged earlier than 2007. Should we bring a 2007 Biker Zin from Four Vines?

I'm bringing a VdF which is even younger, I believe, since Sparky swooped on on my Chase.


His is better, though.

It's not looking promising, sad to say. I'm still hoping to work something out.

that could possibly help. Especially if you could take 2. But really, it's more just a question of coordination with the 75 million family members and I have to pawn off the 3 year old too.

Then again, do I really want to drive with you???!?!!!

Or were you offering someone else to drive?

A friend gave me a 1999 zin from Lodi. I'm not sure how this is going to stand up so I'll bring something else as a back up.

Sure I can take 2, but in your case, I can always strap you to the hood or roof.

I can even take 3, with proper notice. Just not on long trips (as RJ can attest).

Not sure what wines molarchae and I will bring, but we are strongly considering making a matza lasagne. Thoughts from the other Passover observers? That'd eliminate the meaty options.

I think I'm changing my bottles. Instead of the VdF, I'm leaning towards an 07 Hendry's mini-horizontal. And I'll bring the Vranec for the C club. Eh?

Nope.

You may be thinking of the Century Supper Club in West LA.


Edit: Up to 171, IIRC, but the Roditis won't help since I already have it.

Not defunct, just *very* slow in sending out certificates. I sent my thing in July and just got it a few weeks ago. They figured I was being very quick about it since they gave me doppel status immediately. Now I have to live up to it.

Sounds like it depends on the person. Molarchae and I will be bringing a milk dish, so we won't be eating meat. Fish would be fine. Then due to Passover it's anything made with a grain that's no good. The time2testit's are a little more strict. Having said that, there's only so much planning around us that makes sense. If there's chocolate covered bacon, we'll just take some home for post-Passover.

Wait ... I thought grain was ok, but it had to be unleavened (thus Matzos)?


And no choc bacon for you!

Sounds good. I was thinking of an appetizer. No grain does make it interesting though.

So much easier to exclude it than to explain all the rules. But yes, unleavened grain is ok if sufficiently certified etc.

OK. If you really want the complicated details, This is from a site I found:

"While many Jews adhere to the same rules for buying Passover foods before and during the holiday, Jewish Law actually draws an important distinction. Certain leniencies are permitted for some foods if they are produced before Passover begins. Still other foods must adhere to the same standard irrespective of when they are produced. The following guidelines, prepared by the Conservative Movement’s Committee on Law and Standards, clarify these possibilities:

PROHIBITED FOODS

Leavened bread, cakes, biscuits, crackers, cereals, coffee ‘‘blends’’, wheat, barley, oats, rice, dry peas, dry beans, and all liquids which contain ingredients or flavors made from grain alcohol or vinegar (other than cider vinegar). For Ashkenazi Jews (which I believe all of us that will be attending are), the tradition is not to eat peas, corn, rice, beans or other legumes, because their flour closely resembles hametz; string beans are permitted.


PERMITTED FOODS

1. The following foods require no "Kosher for Passover’’ label if purchased prior to Passover: Unopened packages or containers of coffee (plain, not blends), pure white sugar, plain tea bags, salt (uniodized), pepper, pure spices, frozen fruit juices with no additives, honey, frozen (uncooked) vegetables (except legumes, as above), milk, butter, cottage cheese, cream cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables, kosher meat and poultry (fresh and frozen) and fish, baking soda, frozen (uncooked) fruit (with no additives), ripened cheeses (such as cheddar, muenster and Camembert), baking soda, 100% pure saccharin tablets.

2. The following foods require no "Kosher for Passover" label if purchased before or during Pesah: Fresh fruits and vegetables (for legumes, see above), eggs, fresh meat and fresh fish, as well as all detergents, cleansers and scouring powders that are certified kosher year-round.

3. The following foods require a "Kosher for Passover" label if purchased before or during Pesah: All baked products (matzah, cakes, matzah flour, farfel, matzah meal and any products containing matzah), canned or bottled fruit juices (which are often clarified with legumes), canned tuna (since tuna, even when packed in water, has often been processed in vegetable broth and/or hydrolyzed protein; however, if it is known that the tuna is packed exclusively in water, without any additional ingredients or additives, it may be purchased without a kosher for Passover label), wine, vinegar, liquor, oils, dried fruits, candy, chocolate milk, ice cream, yogurt, soda."

Fun, right? I guess it's still better than being slaves in Egypt...(and um disregard the reference in the number 3 to a certain grape product)
