    Default TN: rainy days and Cot always pick me up

    Wednesday was cool and drizzly, and I figured no way they'd have the
    final jazz concert of the year by river (I don't go when inside at
    community center). But at 5 it had stopped, and I drove past park and
    saw them setting up. Hurrah! So Betsy adjusted dinner timing and we
    headed to river. She had made a delicious chicken with peanut sauce,
    served over cabbage/cilantro slaw and lemon rice. I brought leftover
    Matrot Bourgogne and the 2008 Maison Brulees (Michel Auge) "L'Erebe",
    a VdT from the Loire. I seldom buy unknown producers based on retailer
    blurbs, but I trust CSW (and maybe was ordering late at night after a
    couple glasses!). Oops, this is a crown cap under capsule! I used foil
    cutter to get it off. Fairly substantial wine (Cab Franc and Malbec) ,
    big black plum and currant fruit, moderate tannins, good length. Damp
    earth and a little hint of meat, quite nice. A real sense of
    freshness. B++

    Turnout was much smaller than usual, and it did actually drizzle a
    couple times, but we enjoyed the samba band (Ginga Pura Nova York). I
    actually poured out the last of the Matrot so I could use the bottle
    for the Erebe- you can't put a crown cap back on!

    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.*

    No doubt you were thrown by the lack of the circumflex in Côt ;-)

    It's also sometimes called Côt Noir in Cahors... when it isn't Auxerrois :P

    I was looking for a deeper meaning and assumed it had to do with the
    Jazz group.
