60-year-old Châteauneuf @5 francs a bottle; Lamb Kebab Pizza

Despite the propensity for criminals and jealous assholes to be attracted to me wherever I go, there are some interesting events that manage to sneak through the misery. On that depressing note, a window into Europe: Geneva Switzerland. Specifically, the Plainpalais open market. Only in Europe can y...

Paris 16-21 Dec: Wanted Berserkers and/or Fine Dining Recommendations

I will be in Paris between the 16-21st. If anyone is there and would like to share a meal or a glass of wine, let me know. I am also looking for recent fine dining experiences and recommendations at any price-point.

Thanks!

Randy I just had a kick-ass 2004 Butterdragon Hill last night! I am sorry to hear that there will be no more wine in the future, but I can understand the financial responsibilities. I wish you and your family the best in your future endeavors.

Napa - January 4th (Sunday)

Thanks for the great night and to Carrie and Randy for being kick-ass hosts! It was good to meet everyone and actually put some faces to names. Brian's notes are spot on with only a few differences based on personal preferences. I can't wait to do another at some point!

What bottle of wine did you open today?

1995 Calon-Segur: This was delicious. It began with some bret which blew off after 15 mins. This wine is integrated, old world, and correct Bordeaux. Still some silky tannin on the palate but this is ready to go after the bottle had been open for 45 minutes. A pleasure to drink after a kick ass day ...

Cherries with mixed berry pie and a touch of "candy" on the nose.

At least some people here are getting false promises of either wine or a refund. I have heard nothing from Ray or an importer for well over a year... I do not have a lot invested in what MI still has outstanding to me but I would like the wine or my money back.
