The Weekend in Drinking

2003 Edi Kante Refosco was pure, focused, and delicious though maybe a bit pricey from what I hear; 2006 Deux Montille Pernand-Vergelesses Sous Fretille initially showed a little too plump, sweet and oaky, though it firmed and brightened up quite nicely after a few days in the fridge; 2000 Quinta do Feital Dorado Vinho Verde (yes, you are reading correctly - a 10 year old vinho verde) really was an interesting wine that grew on me over the several days it was open; 2002 Cazin Cour-Cheverny Cuvee Renaissance was tangy, candied, crystalline deliciousness; the Marco de Grazia Pinot Grigio in the Burgundy bottle was not surprisingly garbage (Josh, good to see you but I neglected to give you shit for this one, so I'm doing it now even though you're not so much up on the blogs...anyway, pinot grigio? Do you not recommend wine to people for a living??); Speziale Rauchbier on draft was smoky, malty perfection in a .5 liter stein.

Let's make it a good week everyone!
