Liked the format & cast of the first season a lot more. The Matthews were pretty awesome together. Goode and Purefoy weren't "bad" in season 2, they just didn't have what Goode and Rhys had, and Jancis, though great in print, is a bit too arrogant for the camera. Season 2 was saved by Joe and Amelia, as they were fantastic, as always. Was disappointed that they cut the episode count down, but I'll take it if I have to. Looking forward to Season 3.I thoroughly enjoyed it as a relaxing easy watch. Not sure how much I really learned but something about it (maybe it was their chemistry?) was super comforting.
To be fair, most people looking for lambrusco are looking for disgusting swill.Went to the liquor store the other day and was looking through the Italian section for Lambrusco and didn't see anything. Asked a clerk. He guided me to a wall on the other side of the store where all I could really see were Carlo Rossi and Riunite bottles and the like. I was confused and just kind of stopped. He promised me Lambrusco was there. He told me the shelf and everything and I still wasn't seeing it. And then it clicked. I had to ask if they had good Lambrusco. His comment "well that's a totally different question. We don't"
Oh I know. I don’t blame him. We chatted about lambrusco. He had never known it to be anything but that swill. PA being PA most lambrusco is SLO so if you’re a store clerk the only lambrusco you ever see is that wall of shite.To be fair, most people looking for lambrusco are looking for disgusting swill.
Can confirm this is exactly what happened.Scooped a Clos du Mont-Olivet Le Petit Mont mag for $56 bucks today. Gonna crack it tomorrow. Pairing it with my wife’s favorite meal of Stouffers lasagna and cheap AF Texas toast. I’ll probably be draining 3/4 of this thing.
Good, it's tight as fuck though. Even 8 hours decanting was not enough. I put it in a parron and did spanish cider pours into glasses trying to get it to open up.How was it? Keep hearing good things about 16 CDP.
Seems like a lot of people got emails from scarecrow this time aroundFinally got my email from Scarecrow informing me that I'll be allowed an allotment of the Cab Sauv next month. Not sure I'll be able to bring myself to drop the dough... I usually tap out at $35/40 a bottle for special occasions. I buy something over $50 maybe once a year but never spend more than 100...
