What Are You Drinking Tonight, 8/4/06?

It's our 38th anniversary today, so I dug in the cellar and found my last bottle of 1994 Beaux Freres Oregon Pinot Noir. It will be accompanied by grilled top sirloin, grilled new red potatoes, and grilled asparagus.

The wine has been uncorked about 15 minutes and it's starting to open up. It's a biggie, living up to all its promise!

If you have any, it's fully mature but should improve for another 2 to 5 years, and I suspect it will easily last for another 10 years beyond that.

I don't much like the taste of booze, man-oh-man you ought to see my liquor cabinet . I'm having about 1/4 shot of Cointreau this evening. The first sip gives me a whole body hot flash, the second sip to a lesser extent and that finishes of the liqueur.

2000 Ch. d'Eyrans, appellation Pessac-Léognon rouge (located in St. Médard d'Eyrans).

Went beautifully with rare rump steak and shallot confit.
