What Wine Did You Drink Today #1?

$30 on sale? unbeatable price! I wonder if I can find it at that price here (I live in France).


(Eli Paryzer) #383

Yes, it was briefly on sale. Now they have it for $49.99. I would think it would be cheaper in France, but not sure how much cheaper.

The 2015 bottle I find it at 14,5€. I normally like Bordeaux more, but at that price, I wouldn’t mind getting a few bottles.

I read that 2015 is more concentrated compared to 2014’s freshness.


(Eli Paryzer) #385

The 2014 is light for a CDP and is closer to Bordeaux in taste. I cannot speak to the 2015.

love that Delbert cut…i still have the LP; always need a glass of vino in-hand whenever i Play it ! :wink:

Re: paryzer: very nice price on that CdP! I would have snapped up a few bottles if i saw that.

FYIs, the 2016 Southern Rhone reds (incl. CdP) seem to show a very , very nice vintage so far. I’ve already snapped up a number of the CdPs to lay down for a few years.

Tonight I tried a 2017 Two Hands Angels’ Share Shiraz. It went perfectly with a melt in your mouth smoky and spicy Cajun spice dry rubbed boneless country rib :yum:

Thank you @taboni for the excellent wine recommendation!

You’re very welcome Ely that rib looks amazing!


(Eli Paryzer) #391

Thanks @taboni. The ribs were from http://samsbutchershop.com/
I highly recommend him. His andouille sausage and smoked salmon are awesome as well.

This Cooper and Thief red wine blend from CA is turning into our favorite wine. It is aged in bourbon barrels for 3 months and is very smooth for a wine that contains 16% alcohol. You can taste a hint of bourbon. It is a real bargain for under $22. I highly recommend it.

I have been curious about the concept since seeing something similar st Sam’s Club. Might have to try it.
