Pork cutlet, beet/pork sausage (we got the pork box from Blue Hill at Stone Barns), couscous
Betsy chose the 1979 Veuve-Cliquot Rose Champagne. Nice pop, some decent fizz left, bitter cherry despite some sweetness, dry finish. Alive, but more interesting than delicious. B-

We planning on seafood for Saturday, but got call inviting us to friends patio for dinner then a video/movie in their yard. Dinner was Chicken breast with butternut squash tagine, kale chips, rice.

2017 Bailly-Lapierre St. Bris
I bought because its been a while since I had a St. Bris, but this is not an enticement to buy more. Maybe some mild SB character (just a hint of catpee and citrus), no Burgundy character, and basically just a dilute white wine from anywhere. C+

2014 Navarro €śLAncienne-Unfiltered€ť Pinot Noir
Red and black cherry, some tobacco and smoke, light tannins, nicely balanced. B+

Sunday oysters, grilled squid salad with mushrooms (Chanterelles, maitake, trumpet), caprese.

2016 Franz Hirtzberger €ś Rotes Tor€ś Gruner Veltliner Federspiel
White pepper and citrus blossoms on nose, peach and citrus fruit, on larger side for Federspiel but with balanced acids and nice stony finish. B+

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.

As I may have mentioned before, Jean has a sentimental attachment to
this wine as it was her entree to Pinot Noir (served BTG at Chez Panisse
upstairs while we were postdocs at UCB). Recent vintages have seemed
bigger and less graceful than earlier ones, but that may be our palates
changing, too.
