An unnamed, very hospitable restaurant
Tasted Saturday, October 9, 2004 by Blair Curtis with 1,566 views
Well a bunch of us gathered in response to a most generous invitiation from Delbert ("Delyap"). Delbert wanted to have a tasting and check in on some great 1999 California Cabs (and a couple that were mostly Cab) from his cellar. Present were: me, Delyap and his lovely date, Thomas (aka. "Tommy 'O"), Peter, Kirk, and Ray Signorello of the eponymous Napa winery. (Hmmm, I think I may have missed someone.)
Anyways, we started with two great Champagnes, then moved on to the '99s plus an '85 for contrast. And then we finished with 2 Ports and a Sauternes. Whew - nice night!
Biggest disappointment: Montelena. In over its head: CSJ. Top wines: Harlan, Padrone, HSS, '70 Taylor. Best with food: Padrone.
