What's on the menu for the Fourth of July everyone? For us, we plan a light picnic with some pickled shrimp and then dive into a cheese platter with some Vermentino. Later in the weekend, we'll smoke some pork ribs and open up some Zin.

Lots of BBQ and high octane zins. My wifes family are huge Mazzocco fans and those bad boys are all in the 15% + range. The Mazzocco migraine is what we call the next mornings affliction. In full on recovery mode today. Did make a nice fresh green bean salad. Cook in boiling salted water then shock in an ice bath and dress with truffle oil, lemon, S&P, and some lemon basil.

Best,
Bryan

That's funny! I know the feeling. The Late Picked Ridge at 14.8% gave me a York Creek Yowler. Of course, the flowing bottles of rosť probably didn't help either.
Thanks for the green bean salad suggestion. Sounds great.

Went over to a friend's house where they served us grilled ribeyes, garlic mashed spuds, a lovely baby greens salad, mac & cheese. A couple Turnbull Cabs were cracked, a 2009 and a 2010, a magnum of Silver Oak Alexander Valley, 2008. Before those we had a myriad of cheeses with a 2008 Morlet La Proportion Doree, Sonoma County. Wine of the night for me!

Cheers,
Jim
