Poor, poor pitiful me, darling has gone out to dinner with girlfriends so home alone.

 

Exercise now done, so what's for dinner.

 

Love to keep it simple Sergio (KISS) so a classic pasta.

 

Spagettini, Mondo's hot Italian dry sausage, bacon, garlic, basil, red onion, red pepper, truffles, evoo and some very tasty Adelaide Hills Coates Chardonnay to deglaze the pan and some for the pasta some for me during prep.

 

Make sure to boil pasta aldente.

 

And all the while listen to Mr Tony Bennett live and unplugged.

 

And for dinner a glass or two of Wynns 1998 cab sav....... Darling should go out more often..... No,no... Just kidding.

Our Annual Wine of the Year dinner was last night. Everyone brings a wine they think could be a contender....8 of us were in attendance and we held this at Aria restaurant, a 10 course degustation mat

Chilling at home this arvo-washing records,  giving them a spin, doing some cooking and oh, a few beverages ......keeping Mrs Mendes amused.....🙏🥂🍷🍻

Started with some southern Tassie Chardonnay and now enjoying some smoked beef shorties with a few glasses of damn nice 2012 McLaren Vale Shiraz.  Cheers all 🤙

Btw, the Wynns is one good example that doesn't cost much to be rewarded.

Slow roasting chicken using Huston's recipe. Trying this young wine to see if worth getting some more, like the smoky oak taste.20161105_173303.thumb.jpg.b9e23d8b96afed

The label of the Dalmore is pretty old. Is it the kind of $45000 Dalmore that Richard Peterson has been raving about?

Well, I jinxed myself didn't I!!  It took less than 2 days for them to collect my return dozen.  Today I rang to chase up the above wine to which the response was my order was lost and the wine has sold out but we have some other stock you might like.

I have asked for a refund and will go back to buying wines direct from the wineries.

Some friends organized an informal gtg tasting on Saturday where we all share the cost and drink some nice wines..

Anyone want to take a guess on the standout wine? You may be surprised.

Jake, I can tell you 28 is very good, good vintage can be better than st henri from a bad vintage.

I had a couple of 1990 3 years ago and they were better than the 1995 st henri!

how come the Greenock bottle looks so tall?

Who knows..... marketing? Standout in a crowd?...... it was a stunning wine.

The Grange is a latent proposition, I am sure it's best is still 15 -25 years away.

 

None of these wines were bad in any way at all.

 

The one comment that everyone made was..... no bargains to be found here as they are pushing the envelope price wise. YMMV

Thanks Steve, i should buy both then from now on. Only tried 128 once few years ago was a 2008 when i started, wasn't sure but it was not a fair judgement comparing with 1990 28...
Not good for my wallet but good for having another wine to cellar for future haha.

Thanks Steve, will try some for sure.

the reason I asked about the 8 and 138 was talking to a couple of mates to do a penfolds party in the future to taste some of their wine together, and thinking if I should include the 138 and 8.
