Intersect by Lexus - currently featuring David Kinch's Manresa.

Interesting concept and location and by a car company?   Had no idea it existed.  Pretty space.  Did you do the 14 course?  

That wasn't chicken

The Madeira, in particular, was quite delicious. The Coteaux wasn't bad either. Lovely to see some wines with age on them in an NYC restaurant.  Not that easy to find at this price point.  (Man, we missed going out!)

Nice.... I'm a big fan of Madeira.  Years ago, I had the unbelievable privelage of tasting an 1875 vintage.... Jesus was that good... it ruined me!

No - those were pretty limited and sold out quickly - you had to pre reserve and sit at counter.

With one of the desserts we had, it was great. But...1875...wow! I can understand how everything after might pale.

I always thought Manresa was all about showcasing produce they grew in their garden? I don't know if that's true - I've never been there, but saw an interview with David Kinch once many years ago.

 

The unbelievable thing about that 1875 was that it wasn't that expensive, relatively.  Madeiras are typically a really good value, and it's not like an old port that you have to finish the bottle soon after opening (Coravin doesn't work so well on ridiculously old corks in not that great of shape) - madeiras last forever - they're indestructable!

Certainly one of the reasons to go to the OG.

We ordered focusing on showcasing proteins; and although garden grows year-round, some of the summer vegetables are certainly not available to them in the winter/spring, at least not from their garden.

A 2017 vintage of this was enjoyed with the Gumbo I posted over in Dinner.

HdV makes 3 different Chardonnays, this is the one made with the youngest vines.  I've been drinking wine made from these vines since 2012 vintage and they were planted in 2010, it's interesting how age affects the wine.

 

It's French style made in Napa (By a French winemaker), also one of the few Napa Chardonnays I really like.

Me?  Old Vine Zinfandel.

It's pretty much my go-to everyday red winde.

We used to do the Willamette Valley wine tours and brought home cases of Bogle wines.

My wife received a very nice gift the other day. I don't drink very often, but I had a hunch it would be worth it.

Nose of walnuts and caramel but bone dry - almonds and walnuts on the palate with a really interesting saline finish. Yum.
