Berserker day theme continues with a 2013 Hattori Hanzo in new, fresh off the truck, Grassl 1855. I love this glass! A huge step up from my Vinums. And the wine isn’t so shabby either. Tannins are more resolved and integrated than my last bottle 8 months ago. QPR is off the charts on this @ $15/per.
Love the 2007! I don’t recall ever having a problem with those corks but have with some others). The 2008 is good, but it’s not the 2007. I think I have one more bottle stashed of '07. It’ll be a sad day when I run out.
@karenhynes Oh yeah, that one was tasty. However the PF line, for ~$7, was an absolutely awesome QPR when Clark was clearing them and some Barbera out back in '13. Got cases of them and still have a few, I think.

@rjquillin Drinking very well, exactly as a well made well aged Cab should. Dig one out,you will enjoy for sure. Don’t think its going to improve any but its got life left. Last one I had left, those were a good buy back on WW.
@klezman@ScottW58 This was my first Flannery experience. And after reading several berserker posts on Flannery and Sous vide i ended up grilling mine. It was good, but I want to give Sous vide a shot. What temp and duration did you go with?
Since I decided to blow torch, I cooked to the temperature I prefer. In this case, hangers are good a little more cooked, so I went with 57°C. They are small in thickness, so they got about 75 minutes. They’re tender enough you don’t need to give them a ton of time.
After the bath, salt and blow torch. Centre temp doesn’t come up at all. If I was going to grill or cast iron sear, is have cooked in the 50-52 range.
Okay here goes…wine.com, code $100 off $300 dollar purchase WKMP24. Go through Rakuten and they are giving 14% cash back. So Rakuten to Wine.com $39.99 per load up 8 bottles=$319.92-$100=219.92-14% and you have one hell of a deal I don’t know somewhere around $23 or $26 per delivered Yay!
@ScottW58 Too good to pass up - damn you! I got 3 Felsina Rancia and 4 Produttori. Shipping isn’t cheap, but at the eventual discount price that’s solid. I assume the 14% is on the net purchase not on the pre-tax/shipping?
Last night was 2013 Two Jakes of Diamonds Petite Sirah (received it Friday and had to give it a try) – very nice, and I look forward to letting some of my case age for a number of years. But is their caffeine in this stuff? I had a terrible time falling asleep last night (which is unusual for me).
