The Samaroli Rum lineup.

Samaroli Single Malts 1967 - 1996. Phenomenal.

Round 2.

Ore vs Cal pre-game wine selections.

Unbelievable wealth of rum knowledge. over 45 btls in the lineup!

B. Ambroise NSG '96, sweet candied, black cherries, old shoe leather, violets, very evolved, classic finish.

So loses a football bet, Grand Cru Burg at stake. This is what I get....

Jaboulet Hermitage 'La Chapelle' 1983, baked herbs, anise, hickory, smoked bacon, green pepper, acid for days.

N. Rossignol Volnay 'Clos des Angles' 02, baked blackberries, seamless integration of baking spices, oak, round tannins

Castillo Ygay 1970, one of the greatest Riojas I've tasted. Ripe on the nose, incredible acidity, perfect balance.

Claude Cazals '00, BdB Le Mesnil, serious structure, brioche, youthful, killer finish, wish this had 15 more yrs on it

Bourbon and fresh rain are a perfect match.

was pretty ripe. But not this ripe...

Cali love tonight. Both winners.

Schug, classic styled Pinot Noir from Carneros. Soft & lush fruit, round tannins, long finish. Inexpensive price tag.

Fresh caught reds on the half shell.

Affogato at Giacomo's, the perfect dessert. One of my favorite Italian spots in Houston, Lynette does a great job.

Get her Les!

Stuffed a massive Triple Tail last night. One of the best fish I've had in awhile. Caught w/

Just getting back from an excellent trip in Cameron, LA. Reds, Specks, and Tripletail. Ready to grill for #lsu game
