Sunday was lovely, and we went over to friends (hound in tow) for dinner on their deck. We carried the appetizers- radish leaf pesto on radish, garlic scape pesto crostini, celery with Robiola, and then when we sat down some sea bass crudo. Plus Nancy had a gazpacho shrimp cocktail


I am very jealous of your ability to make crudo. Few of the fish we get
in Santa Fe are fresh enough to justify crudo. We often drink Sake with
crudos when we can make them.

2014 Mt. Eden Edna Valley Chardonnay
Good acids for CalChard, just a hint of oak, citrus fruit coming before the pear/apple white fruits. Good balance, nice length. Good value. B
Dinner was ribs, corn, baked beans, & slaw

2006 Stella di Campalto Rosso di Montalcino
Ambitious aging a Rosso this long, but it worked out fine. New producer to me. Midweight, black cherry and dried cherry, leather. Bright acids, still a hint of tannins, lovely and lively Sangiovese. B+

2009 Ch. de Flaugergues (Languedoc)
This on the other hand is not my style. Big, jammy, and beginning to crack up, lots of alcohol and VA on nose. C+

Incredible sunset sky to finish the evening, lots of fun.

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. 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.

If you look you'll see most of my crudo making is on weekends, as great purveyor at farmers' markets (Hastings on Sat and Irvington on Sun). If I want to make midweek need to travel a bit more.
