re: Suggested temperature to serve wine? - lilwineman
As a generalized statement....fuller bodied reds closer to 65....lighter reds closer to 55....fuller whites closer to 55 and lighter whites and champagne closer to 45. This of course can vary with the age of the wine as well and where it is technically from, i.e. cab based Bordeaux won't have the al...

re: Anniversary dinner in Houston: Underbelly or somewhere else? - lilwineman
Pass and provisions and oxheart are two great choices. Radio milano and bramble have two newer spots to hit up, the latter only opening s few weeks ago. It's randy Ruckers new place and it's true farm to table with a weekly evolving menu, small but precisely chosen wine selection, and a low markup o...

re: Lets talk Martini shall we? - lilwineman
Shaking a spirit oxidizes the beverage causing the aromatic compounds to become somewhat sharper. If you're using swill, shake away. If you're using proper gin or complex vodka (albeit there are few), you will get a more true expression of the distillers intent through stirring while still achieving...

re: Lets talk Martini shall we? - lilwineman
A fully alcohol based martini should be always stirred as to not bruise the spirit. Shaking is preferred when there is an addition of a non spirit product such as a juice....

This man was nice on the phone to myself...hi name was Darnell I believe and did understand my situation. Hopefully they email everyone with new times pushed back.

re: Tiger Stadium Seat Selection Question - lilwineman
I just spoke to them and explained my displeasure with allowing people with a lower ranking to have the same opportunity and selection time as myself. They said they are working on a resolution right now and trying to email the people with selection times about ability to relog into the website....

re: Old Malvern Export Whiskey 100 yr old? - lilwineman
Save that bottle for a story one day and an heirloom. Whiskey doesn't get better once it is pulled from the barrel. It actually should lose flavor potentially as aromatic compounds can degrade and possible contamination could've set in. Enjoy it as a piece of your family history....

re: Galatoire's NOWFE wine dinner - pics - lilwineman
I personally am not sure how much said dinner cost...I also have no clue of the aromatics. What I will say is the plates look boring and bland. Not a single picture I was presented in the list made me go "wow, I need to eat that". It was more like something I could do at home...which is not what I s...
