Tasted Tuesday, August 7, 2012 by Dave Dalluge with 296 views
Siggy organized a small get together meet up with Kevin Sidders and to test out a relatively new local restaurant called Travail. Unfortunately, their July closure extended into August and interrupted our plans. Plan B was Tilia's and it proved to be another great experience. In attendance were: Dave McMahon, Leo Seoris, Jimmy Seoris, Kevin, Steve and myself. There was no wine them, but we ended up exclusively French, with a nice variety of regions. Food and service were both first class as always, and we shared a fair bit of the wine with owner Steven Brown (who proved to have a very fine palate) and the staff. There was too much baseball discussion for my liking given the dismal state of the local club, but otherwise it was an excellent evening all the way around.
Leo also added a Chapoutier Banyuls (?) at the end of the evening but it was unfortunately corked. Great night as usual. It was fun meeting up with Kevin and the rest of the group again. My wine of the night would have to be the Beaucastel, with the Fevre Les Clos and Gruaud Larose close behind.
