Does that 1978 Prieuré-Lichine (it's still on the wine list linked from the site: http://www.noreetuh....-2016-06-04.pdf) go with this food at all, even remotely?
I didn't tip at Per Se either.

Their rationale was something like "the tannins are all gone now".

I've drank it several times there, and at least I haven't died yet.  (Although I never could work out a rationalization for its accompanying anything I ate.)

When you book dinner for someone at Noreetuh and it turns out they gave up drinking...

Still the Rioja Alta by the glass is terrific. Very good food; masubi with pork jowl or beef tongue (yes there’s Spam if you want it); monkfish liver, generous Wagyu hanger steak over rice. Good price. And even though we don’t talk about it any more the place was packed.

My wine group goes there regularly. Food is great and really as long as you're not drinking Napa cab or the like it's perfectly fine pairing. Owner and staff are super friendly.

I follow these guys on their various social media sites, and boy do they open some interesting wines on a weekly basis. I think they really go crazy on Sunday or Monday nights.

Mostly, but depends on the Napa Cab producer.

 

But Sonoma, Contra Costa and Lake County Cabs are better with their food - especially those more than 12 years old.

Ah yes...really meant younger cab. We had some young-ish barolo last time which weren't great either. Champagne, lighter northern Rhone, and valtellina all were fine. And old Riesling, naturally.

I can’t tell you how great it is to book it for dinner with someone who has stopped drinking.
