    Default Adventures with big wine lists and smaller cellars

    We went out last night to celebrate various things so having a gift
    certificate in hand we went off to Ruth's Chris. I perused the sizable
    list and settled on a Cornas "Very Good Sir" and after a few minutes
    wait the server appeared with a bottle in hand. Bottlle had a bright
    purplish label and was in the shape of a bordeaux "NO this is not good
    " my little brain screamed. I poitely inspected the proffered bottle,

    "This is not a Cornas" I declared. "It is the blah blah" "you have
    the negciant correct but the wine is a Pays d'oc from Langedouc" "This
    is what my manager brought me." Now I am starting to get a little
    angry, this is where Lord St. Helier would have his head, but he
    recovers and realizes this is not an argument that he wants so he
    takes the bottle back and brings me the list. Ahh the Aine CdP I think
    and order. Manager comes out I am so sorry sir we do not have that
    particular wine at the moment . . . so we settle for third choice. It
    turns out to be an excellent one
    Cellar Pasanau Ceps Nous Priorat 2008 the following is a fair
    descriptor ecxcept I would add that the wine initially was a bit green
    adn explosive onthe finish but after a few minutes settled down to be
    the best part of the dinner. (they mixed up our steaks, but what do
    you expect . . .)


    "Opaque purple. Initially wild and reduced on the nose but quickly
    gained freshness and dark fruit aromas. Juicy yet seamless blackberry
    and spicecake flavors are nicely firmed by zesty acidity. Primary in
    flavor but supple and broad, with a late note of cracked pepper. This
    surprisingly accessible and plush wine finishes with very good
    persistence."
