Both Whole Foods downtown and Central Market North Lamar have it.

11% and dry.  Perfect.

Headed to higher ground and cooler temps to crush some vino!

Had the 2006 Taittinger Comtes Brut Rose a couple of weeks ago, and it was tasting great 

I am extremely envious of the Macdonald...

No shaggy 1%er here, but having grown up with my parents owning a nice restaurant and being wine snobs themselves I definitely know the differences between great/good/shitty wines. There may have been a thread on the other board about this, but does anyone have some recs for nice wines that are somewhat more of a daily drinker/grabbing a few bottles to have folks over and drink with? 
 

enjoying more Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon blanc with the warmer weather but this extends to reds as well. I tend towards cabs or zinfandels or really anything on the drier side with reds, and for whites I’m a big fan of Italian Pinot Grigio or sauv blanc. What’re some suggestions in the $15-$20 range that are passable?

For my lot I’ll throw in “Odd Lot” blend, about $14 and very nice red, Have seen it a few restaurants around Houston; also had a dashwood Sauvignon Blanc which was really good for the price point for $14

Leftover pizza in the cast iron and some Dr. Peste.

Still surprisingly fresh. Lots of dark fruit. Almost California in style.

I say goddamn, goddamn!

I did ok this weekend with an 02 Quilceda Creek, 91 Jabolet Hermitage (not La Chapelle - fading but not past), 95 Insignia, a 12 CdP from somewhere (drunk by this time), a 2012 Home Ranch, and a 94 Smith Woodhouse Port.

All served around a freaking awesome lamb curry and an Italian cream cake.
