Last night with NY strips & roasted veggies. Still keepin'-on keepin'-on.

Opened last night for an early Valentine's din-din of escargots, bacon-wrapped filet mignon, baked spuds and spinach salad. Cork was so soft it barely gripped the screw, nose showed funk, and sure enough it was badly flawed. Poured a second bottle and not as bad as first but not prime, either. Neither showed signs of being cooked so have to suspect cork taint. Have one remaining bottle of the '00 and will look for an excuse to spend it soon.

Whoops! Spoke too soon. Funk blew off overnight, leaving a pretty decent wine. Haven't encountered that with this label before, so totally unexpected.

Just noticed we both came up with very similar menus.

Just noticed that, too... but yours was more ambitious.

For V-day dinner of oak-grilled filet mignons, twice-baked spuds, roasted brocolli.... very nice indeed, no sign of earlier flaws.
