Sneakeater Posted January 2, 2022 Author Share Posted January 2, 2022 A remarkably similar dinner to Voyager's. New York Strip Steak with a mushroom pan gravy. Hopefully filling in for Black Eyed Peas in the luck department, leftover hominy with Vallarta beans with rice. I have to say that my introduction to Flannery Beef was one of the nicest effects of The Lockdown. I'm wary of having beef shipped from California -- but I don't know anyone on the East Coast selling excellent dry-aged beef retail for such (relatively) reasonable prices. (Yes, that's an appeal.) I didn't feel like opening anything too grand tonight. 2009 Château Peyrabon A Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois. There was a time when most of what I drank was Médoc Crus Bourgeois, and drinking this I can kind of remember why. In my early wine-drinking years, I really got off on how you could get both fruit flavors and secondary flavors like tobacco, leather, and even buttery meat. That no longer fascinates me the way it did -- I kind of take it for granted -- and now I'm on the lookout for more interesting flavors in each of those departments. But you drink a good, honest Bordeaux Cru Bourgeois like this -- especially with an entrecotish steak, which it was made for -- and you can't help but enjoy it. It's like the vinyl of wines.
