    Default TN: Another nice Riesling, but TCA claims the Rhone

    With dry fried Szechuan beef, stirfried asparagus and garlic, and
    rice, the 2007 Schloss Lieser Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Spatlese.
    Lovely, powerful but elegant, sweet citrus, bright apple, flowers, and
    earth. Excellent length, awake and lively, slately minerality. I'm
    dismayed to see I committed infantcide on my only bottle, but a very
    nice effort from a producer barely on my radar. A-

    Tonight Betsy used some Yellow Indian Woman beans she had gotten me at
    Christmas as the base for cassoulet, using bacon, duck legs, and some
    homemade Champagne sausages (pork and mushroom) from freezer. I eyed a
    bottle of lesser Cahors, but brought up a Rhone, the 1999 Domaine de
    Cristia Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Medium red fruit, resolved tannins, a
    little earth. Hey, what was that- TCA? No, it's alright. Another
    couple sips, this is a decent CdR masquerading as a CdP. Wait- I
    thought I got a little damp cardboard again. Not there. Wait, maybe.
    OK, I reluctantly come to the conclusion this this is mildly corked,
    just at the threshold of my perception. Too bad.

    Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an
    excellent*wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I
    wouldn't*drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I
    offer no*promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of
    consistency.**

    Just in passing, I would mention stir-fried asparagus and water
    chestnuts. It's a very good combination, even if it really needs fresh
    water chestnuts, and would suit your menu. This slightly sweet sauce
    works well.
    2 tab mirin

    2 tab mild soy sauce

    1 tab grated ginger

    1 chopped garlic

    1 tab rice vinegar

    1 tab corn starch

    thanks for idea, we're lucky enough to live in area with large Asian
    populations, so have several large Chinese markets for water
    chestnuts. Will try next time
