Default TN: '06 Prum with Thai food for St Patricks Day

So Betsy had started the corned beef when her brother-in-law called-
he invited us to join he and her sister on a journey to Queens. We
decided the corned beef would be great on day 2, and jumped at the
chance to go to the famous SriPraPhai.

St Paddys is a good day to go, while fairly full there was no line. We
ate an assortment of dishes, though since Kath and Cal are presce-
vegetarians we didn't order any meat. Well, I was compelled to order
the beef tendon in dark (blood) sauce (amazing, with cinnamon and
citrus zest flavors), while others shared tom yum. But after that is
was seafood all the way:
papaya salad with catfish
fried watercress salad with squid and shrimp
Steamed calamari w/chili & lime
Drunken noodles with shrimp, chili & basil
Shrimp, squid, trout & mussels w/garlic, peppers, ginger, and basil
whole red snapper with a basil and lemongrass sauce

Everything excellent. We ordered mild, knowing that everything would
still be hotter than anything listed as hot and spicy on a typical
Americanized Thai menu. Kath got a Singha, the rest enjoyed a Riesling
I'd brought along, the 2006 JJ Prum Graacher Himmelreich Auslese. I
sometimes find pairing young Auslesen hard, but this was a good wine
for these varied dishes, united by the hot chiles and some Riesling
friendly flavors like ginger. Rich sweetness, but a bracing acidity
keeps in light-feeling. Somewhat floral nose (some sulfur, but not
excessive for me), rich body of pear fruit accented with peach and
lime, long loooonngg slatey finish. This is showing as young as
expected, could use some time, but a lovely and long bottle of
Riesling. A-


Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

One of my favorite German makers. I haven't noticed any sulfur but
I'm not real sensitive to it. Thanks for the notes
Bi!!

A lot of people have trouble with the sulphur in young Prums, so I was
especially looking for it. I too am not especially sensitive.
