2008 Grand Vin De Bordeaux from the Chateau de Seguin


Uncorked a 2008 French Bordeaux from Chateau De Sequin for this foggy Red Wine Sunday. 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet and 10% Cabernet Franc in this bottle. About $10 over at Trader Joes, this wine won a Bronze award at the 2010 Paris Agricultural show.

The first taste brought on some nice raisin and strawberry flavors with a bit of a bite from the tannins (most likely from the Cabernet). Ahh- but it is getting better with a second glass. I've added a bit to the sauteed mushrooms and onions that will top the grilled T-Bones tonite. Can't wait to have a mouthful of the Bordeaux and steak! Cheers!

Ebay Rock 45's (1/28/10)

Ebay Rock 45's

Each Friday, I post a select group of 5 rock 45's that sold on Ebay recently.
Here's the list for Friday, the 28th of January, 2011

The Teen Kings Ooby Dooby $525.00

From the Auction :
This is the original 1956 recording on Jewel featuring Roy Orbison before he recorded for Sun.


The Starfires Linda $525.00

From the Auction: KILLER HOLY GRAIL GRUNGE ROCK 45


Sad0-Nation I'm Trouble $239.50

From the Auction: SADO-NATION "I'm Trouble" & "Gimme You" b/w "On Whom They Beat" & "Mom And Pop Democracy" 7" EP, 1980 Trap Records USA.


Agent Orange Bloodstains $206.38

From The Auction: AGENT ORANGE "Bloodstains b/w America/Bored of you"
Label: Self released
Year: 1980
Condition: EX/EX
Notes: Original 1st press (red label)


The Rolling Stones She's A Rainbow $206.39

From The Auction: RARE 45 r.p.m. Picture Sleeves!!! Would you like to travel back in time about 50 years and collect rock and roll picture sleeves in brand NEW condition? Sure you would! Well, today's the day! I'm selling off my private collection of rare items!

THIS AUCTION is for a scarce Rolling STONES sleeve in NM condition: She's a Rainbow // 2000 Light Years from Home
Back in the 1950's, a San Francisco juke box dealership bought from one to twenty copies of all the hit records. They stocked individual juke boxes with these records, custom-picked by customers who rented the individual juke boxes for private dances-------filled with their favorite hit records of the day! Let's have a party!

When plain record sleeves (with their 4-inch holes) held a record, the juke box dealer could hold a stack of 45's on his thumb. But sleeves with photos didn't have holes, and they couldn't be stacked on his thumb! So this dealer REMOVED the illustrated picture sleeves and stacked them in the corner of the room, and put the records in heavy-paper green sleeves, and that problem was solved!

Then, in 1974, the juke box dealer let me into his stock room to buy stuff. The 45 rpm records were fine-to-mint, neatly stored on shelves, alphabetically labeled, and $1 each! Even being a starving college student, I bought over 100 records, the big Find-of-the-Day being Elvis' "That's All Right" on the SUN label......for just $1!!! Yes, I still have it to this day!

And over in the corner of the room were UNUSED 45 rpm Picture Sleeves, stacked all the way to the ceiling!!! Many were pop standards (Frank Sinatra, etc) but about 10% of them were in the category of Rock 'N Roll. So I bought them!

Here's a special treat for you Elvis Costello fans - an auction of 49 EC singles that went for $200!

Click here ------> "Elvis" to go to the auction to check the titles - nice selection!

2009 Cellier Du Rhone Cotes Du Rhone


Just uncorked my second Cotes Du Rhone this year. This one is from Cellier Du Rhone and is from the 2009 vintage.

Much better than the Caves Des Papes that I tried back on the 2nd, but still only about $5 over at Trader Joes. Light and with a hint of Raspberries. Very drinkable and smooth. Now, if you are a Zin lover like me, be prepared that this is very different. Lower alcohol and lighter in color, this is going to go well with the grilled chicken, onions and peppers that I've prepared tonight for the family.

I've learned now that the Cote Du Rhone wines are typically produced from the Grenache Noir, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignane and Mouvedre grapes. Unlike Californian wines, the percentages of the blend are completely up to the winemaker. In California, if you are drinking a Cabernet Sauvignon, you are assured that at least 75% of the grapes used in the wine were Cabernet Sauvignon. With a Fench wine, ya really don't know what is in there, it's a mystery.

One thing I have to say about inexpensive French wines - what is up with the funky bottle shapes????

Here's the propoganda from the webite : Pasquier Desvignes

Sideways in Japan


If you have seen the movie Sideways (an ode to Santa Barbara Pinot Noir), you no doubt remember the scene above where Miles (having just received bad news about his book project) self-medicates himself with the dregs of a tasting room dump bucket.

Well, it seems that the Japanese film industry realized that the story might just be popular in Japan too. Here's the trailer (in Japanese, but even if you don't understand, you get the picture).:


Now, I've read a bit about the Japanese version and they changed a couple of things - it is set in Napa Valley, the wine that is championed is Cabernet Sauvignon and the crucial back porch scene has been cut. But, if you watched the trailer, the dump bucket scene is executed perfectly!

2006 Forchini Vineyards and Winery Proprietor's Reserve Zinfandel



Loving this Zinfandel from Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley. Served some up on New Year's Eve, but only got a taste, so I had to go back for another bottle. Spicy ruby red fruit in this one - plus some nice vanilla from the Oak. Should go good with the Spaghetti sauce that I got simmering away on the stove today. Gonna throw in some Turkey Meatballs and Chicken Pesto Sausage later.

Paid $14 down at my local wine shop for the bottle, but it is worth twice that in my humble opinion.... Love the Caravaggio on the label - now that's classic Italian!

Here's the propoganda from the website:



Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley
Proprietor's Reserve
Estate Grown & Bottled


Our Zinfandels are classic Dry Creek and produced from 90+ year old head pruned vines from our historic pre-prohibition vineyard located on the elevated east benchland of Dry Creek Valley. These magnificent non-irrigated vines are a living testament to the unique combination of this old clone with the deep rooted St. George rootstock. Low yields enable maximum ripeness in the fruit which produce a full bodied dry wine with intense mixed briary berry flavors, deep ruby red color, fragrant spice and bold alcohol. Generally co-fermented with small amounts of Carignane for a supple balanced finish without heat and aged 20 months in 35% new American oak barrels. A great wine to pair with braised meat sauces or other fancy Italian entrees.

Un bicchiere di vino Forchini รจ buono per Lei
"A glass of Forchini wine is good for you!"
