Very nice Fred.
I enjoy hearing more about the wineries i haven't yet had a chance to visit in the Niagara and Bench area.
Lailey sells one of my favorite chardonnays. The Canadian oak version is subtle in difference but i quite like it.

Fielding Estate sells a fantastic pinot gris (they're in Grimsby).

My short thoughts on Coyote's Run, too expensive for the quality. Anything sold around here starts at $22-26 but i would more price it at $18 maybe. A low price to quality ratio IMO.

Glad you liked the writeup Chess. I think Lailey offered the best value for money by a good margin that day. I tried the Chardonnays and really liked them: oaked and unoaked. My dad picked up an unoaked Chardonney, so I picked up the Riesling.

I stopped at Fielding Estate on the last trip. I can't remember what I picked up, but I did like their wines.

You keep writing up those wine reviews Fred so i can live vicariously through you.
We have about two wineries in Manitoba and i'm not a fan of "other" fruit wines.

Had a Koyote's Run Sparkling Pinot Noir rose last night. It was served with a Stuffed roast chicken and was a very good pairing, particularly since the bread stuffing had blueberries and cranberries in it. The fruity notes in the wine matched very well with the stuffing and the meal overall.

The previous evening I opened a Rosewood Estates Gewurztraminer that I found very good and quite unique. It is dry, has quite a bite and an unusual floural finish. This is now my favourite wine of this variety.

I'm quite impressed with Rosewood Estates in that they offer unique wines that make them stand out in the region.

Its funny how things work out some times. The Rose, my father brought from my stash without knowing what the menu was, and the Gewurztraminer is the only white I kept in my apartment. Both meal pairings were quite by accident and both were exceptional in their 'choice'.

Very nice Fred.

We have some company coming into town this week so i plan on opening some wines i've held for a few years now (some very old like a 2000 Mondavi Reserve unfiltered Cab), some just really darn nice (e.g. 2005 Wolf Blass Black Label) and some of the special B.C. wines i brought back after attending the Olympics in 2010.

I think the tour photos of that trip are somewhere earlier in this thread.

The intended dinner on Saturday is brisket. I expect to have a 12+ hour cook time. I'll add some photos of the new Big Green Egg and my second run at doing brisket (the first run was quite stellar but i forgot to take any pics).

I missed your post Chess. How did the dinner work out?

And now for something completely different... cola wine.

Well i did take pictures, but not of brisket #1. Instead we did it again when a brother of mine came up from Virginia (yes i have an American brother).
I"m looking for those photos now and for some reason i can't find them. I have tons of pics of the new Big Green Egg (whole diff story but an AMAZING cooking experience).

I'll post the brisket pics once i find them.

You American brother is probably going to think you don't love him as much as he loves you if you don't get yourself down to Virginia and visit him.


And while you were here, I totally wouldn't guilt you into visiting me, too.

An electrical storm came through last night and I think it fried my modem and a switch. I'm going through the chain methodically, but that's what it's looking like.

Now I might have to buy a new modem and switch and re-do my network. And I'm already behind on everything because we had a huge yard sale this past weekend and I lost several days beforehand setting up old computers to be sold and hauling stuff down from the attic. And we didn't make all that much money in the yard sale.

The weather is sucky today and I don't have ANY idea when I'm going to be able to cut the grass with all this rain we're getting!

We didn't have any bananas left this morning, so I had to have TWO yogurts instead and they weren't even yogurts that I like! They were vanilla, on their last day for the expiration date, that Joyce left because she didn't like Greek vanilla yogurt.
