Road Trip!

I will be on the road to Pittsburgh June 15th to the 18th to catch a few rounds of the US Open. When I last went in 1994, the heat was overwhelming and the fairways were slick as a twisted landing strip. (As a sidenote, after an afternoon round at Fox Chapel on Friday, I also caught the famous OJ slow chase in his white Bronco.)

Wine Spectator - South Beach Wine & Food Festival

Yes, I really was there. Here's the proof in the May 31, 2007 issue of Wine Spectator. After downing all that wine, I managed to nibble on some lunch bites. See you next year on the beach!

New Addition

Welcome to the latest member of the Grandin Road petting zoo. Visiting hours are restricted so call ahead! I am guessing this is the first horse born in Hyde Park in 50 years. Mom and son are doing fine.

Erie Avenue Not So Blind

Monday the 7th about 10 of us got together to share some big and little bottles. The two 3 liter bottles were left for another day. We started with the 1996 Duval Leroy Brut, and then in no particular order: 1993 Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet, 2001 Torres Mas Borras Pinot, 1997 Folie a Deux Napa Sangiovese, 1997 Wynns Coonawarra John Riddoch Cabernet, 1989 Vieux Telegraphe, 2000 Vieux Telegraphe, and 1990 Silver Oak Bonny's Vineyard Cabernet. The last three were mags and showed very well. The 90 Silver Oak was the most elegant Silver Oak I have tasted. Time does work wonders!
