re: Help finding a wine (Baton Rouge) - lilwineman
I'm in wine distribution focusing on the City Centre area of Houston. Have gotten out of the restaurant industry probably for good, unless one day I do my own thing. Those hours can take its toll on you. Heading back home for the holiday this weekend so might pop into corporate brew or the cove toni...

re: WINE & BOILED CRAWFISH - lilwineman
Trust me on this if you please...the best pairing for boiled crawfish is a white with a touch of residual sugar but not sweet. Kabinett or trocken spatlese Riesling, Oregon pinot Gris, Chenin Blanc/Viognier blends would be common go to wines. Too acidic and you take away from the spiciness of the di...

The wine should be low alcohol, slightly frizzante (bubbles), with a sweet flavor profile reminiscent of peach, pear, and white flowers. Very easy drinking and with the low abv easy enough to finish a bottle alone....

re: Wine Appreciation Thread - lilwineman
I don't know if they have been around that long, but frogs leap has had the same winemaker since they started. Did a 20+ year retrospective tasting in then and it was amazing to truly see the variation of a vintage when a winemaker sticks by his style of winemaking. A great representation of the ch...

re: Wine Appreciation Thread - lilwineman
Yeah that there on the Bellevue is just a Bordeaux superieur. Basically a step above entry level. Those snes typically are tight young and could use about 3 years to soften up. I find the best wines for early drinking are typically st emilion. Merlot dominant and great wines for the price. Les cadra...

re: Wine Appreciation Thread - lilwineman
You're not mistaken on the studies. I think I will try and knock out a few easier classes earlier before I attempt the advanced somm. I took my CSW and got a 95/100. Looking to take the spirits CSS and the level 3 WSET (wine and spirits education trust) to get back into the swing of things. Then I w...

re: Wine Appreciation Thread - lilwineman
So from 2004-2010, terra di lavoro averaged a 95.9 rating from Parker. That's the 12th highest wine on the list for average and the only wine in the top 20 posted that comes in under $100 msrp (should be $75-80). Honestly, I think Costco gets their hands on a little if it as well. Not something most...

re: Wine Appreciation Thread - lilwineman
For some reason, the climate seems to be great for the Galardi family for their Aglianico. Terra di lavoro has somewhere around a 95-96 point average from Parker over the last 10 years if I'm not mistaken. That's up there with the best of Bordeaux and California cab. Their yields are so low that con...
