My neighbors up the street have been partying since 1:00 PM, lovely group of about 30 young adults, class of 2020, America's hope for the future. Loud noise, loud music, lots of booze.

No need to call the police, but definitely the fire department. Seems like one of the master grill chefs managed to set the side of the garage on fire. Not looking good for the garage.

R14 Basically, he's been accusing me of taking him for granted, which I have, but I was in no mood to apologize. Work furlough has resulted in too much togetherness and all the little spats turned into a huge blow up last night.

We got so loud that our neighbors called the police. They noticed a bruise on my arm from him having grabbed me and they saw I was visibly very upset. We managed to tell them that everything was fine and they finally left.

He then moved into the guest bedroom and told me he wanted to do an in house separation for a week and then try to talk things out. So I drank all night and have been sick all day. End of story.

Used the first 2 months of quarantine as a cleanse. No drinking or smoking pot. After 2 months not drinking, I’m still not decided it it’s good or bad. Probably healthier without - but also provides a relaxation from stress that provides a little glimmer of happiness in a mundane and difficult existence.

R62 One more detail, did you put tomato paste in your roast?

by Anonymousreply 6405/23/2020

No tomato

by Anonymousreply 6505/23/2020

R65 Then go with the Pinot! If you would have said yes to tomato, I was going to recommend the Cabernet. They all would compliment your roast, but I think the acidity of tomatoes stands up to the stronger, and sometimes immature tannins of the tomato better.

by Anonymousreply 6605/23/2020

R65 The Malbec would be my second choice....Enjoy!

by Anonymousreply 6705/23/2020

Sorry, meant the tannins of the Cab!

by Anonymousreply 6805/23/2020

Never drink wine but have started during lockdown as liquor stores were closed.. The acid made me throw up. Wish there was a low acid wine.

by Anonymousreply 6905/23/2020

Thanks! I was thinking of Malbec. If I go a different route and do a makeshift chicken parm (pasta, chicken, marinara, parm cheese) what would pair well with that? I usually just pick whatever but am trying to be more sophisticated and educated on these things.

by Anonymousreply 7005/23/2020

^ the marinara would be from a jar and the parm from the green canister....I know, tacky by DL standards, but I am not the best in the kitchen.

by Anonymousreply 7105/23/2020

R70 I think either the Malbec or the Cab... I would personally have white, but that's me... Some do not perceive a difference in acidity or the strong tannins in Cabernet... I would say if your roast is rather fatty, or you make a rich gravy, the Cab shall be a nice foil to the richness... even sans tomato.

I think the Burgundy (Burgundy is 100% Pinot) is always an excellent pairing with a Beef roast....Malbecs I like so much, I find they can go with so many things... the more peperry the better IMHO. If you're spicing up the Chicken Parm, go with the Malbec!

by Anonymousreply 7205/23/2020

R71 Don't feel bad about whatever you're using... You need to keep positive whilst cooking: believing it shall turn out well is crucial! CONFIDENCE!

I'm not the sort to "Ina (Garten) you"! Make the best of what you've got, and it sounds like you have a delicious case of wine! Put dried Oregano and Basil, and some garlic powder or garlic salt in the sauce to goose it up. The Cab or the Malbec will be nice. I would go full on American if I were you, and add some Mozzarella or Provolone as well.

by Anonymousreply 7305/23/2020

Do you have a Montepulciano? I love that. I don't eat meat, so I don't know how it goes with what you're having. I'm not a wine expert like your other interlocutor, but I also like a Sangiovese.

2nd glass of pinot grigio, and intending on finishing the bottle.

by Anonymousreply 8105/23/2020

R78/R74 I think a Valpolicella pairs rather well with pastas, as well as chicken... Full flavour, yet a bit lighter than the Sangiovese or Montepulciano. Very smooth versatile table wine... Not too much acidity or tannin.

He didn't mention any of these fine Italians in his case though... So many reds, so little time!

R55/R70/etc here. Thanks for the suggestions! My case didn't have any Valpolicella, Sangiovese, or Montepulciano. It does have an Italian: Nero Di Troia.

It did also have something obscure: from Armenia, Voskeni Ararat. The grape variety is Areni. It's a red dry wind. I have no idea what it's like or what to pair that with!

by Anonymousreply 9405/23/2020

Yeah, I thought I had a Sangiovese but I must have been mixing it up with the unknown Nero Di Troia. I don't know my Italian wines very well at all. The Armenian one is the biggest mystery.

by Anonymousreply 9505/23/2020

R86 Yes, really the most versatile white, and brilliant on its own without food... Not too "Oaky" or sour in its aftertaste. I do find many of the NZ and Aussie varieties of Sauvignon Blanc to be completely different to the original varietal. This can be good or bad, depending on what you're pairing it with.

Many are redolent of grapefruit or other citrus, which must be à terroir aspect of these. Some wine snobs I've met at auction even refer to some as having a "cat-pee" like nose. With cheeses, and nosh I don't mind them, yet I prefer a more nuanced or balanced Sauvignon Blanc, more mineral than a heavy citrus nose or palate.

As a prime example, I would never serve a NZ or Aussie Sauvignon Blanc with a Coquille St. Jacques, or other light classic fish dish, as the wine might dominate IMHO. I think a true Sauvignon Blanc is best described as soft, and ought to be a "quieter" table wine. I'm no snob; I just know what I like.

by Anonymousreply 9605/23/2020

R89: So true! Years ago, I went to Moulin Rouge and drank about 2 bottles of French wine with zero hangover the next day. I even remember the entire night. I would've been trashed (and very sick/hungover) after drinking that much wine in the US.

by Anonymousreply 9705/23/2020

R91 Sorry I'm no help with the Armenian, yet the Nero di Troia. aka "Uva" is a great young wine... best to drink ASAP, think of it as the Nouveau Beaujolais of Italy, unless the grape is blended with other varietals, such as Sangiovese, or others...

I'm serving them with a garlic and lemon couscous (zest & the juice) and Israeli Salad. My vino pairing is an Argentine Malbec! (though I probably should switch to water at this point! Ha! Not a chance!)

by Anonymousreply 10005/23/2020

R55/R70 etc here. I ended up doing the chicken and pasta thing and paired it with the Nero di Troia. I don't think I've ever had this variety before. It was quite good, but a bit "weak" compared to a Cab or a Malbec. But very drinkable indeed.

Hope everyone is having an excellent Sat night! I'm just here finally eating my dinner, drinking wine, and hanging out with the cat while listening to music.

by Anonymousreply 10105/23/2020

R101 Glad it turned out well, and that you enjoyed the wine! I hope the Armenian "mystery" wine turns out well... You must let us know! I overcooked a couple of the chops, but it worked out well, as my beau likes them more done.

by Anonymousreply 10205/23/2020

Yes R102 I will come back and post about the Armenian mystery wine after I try it! The case was from a wine distributor who himself happens to be of Armenian origin so it's cool that he included something from that region. I like trying new things.

by Anonymousreply 10305/23/2020

Cheers R103! I thought that Uva would probably be "light"... Like the Beaujolais.... I think those case deals are a great oppurtunity to become acquainted with "new" wines... I often did the same back in the late nineties, and often surprised myself that I didn't NOT like certain wines. They always would throw in some "mystery" obscure wines back then as well.

by Anonymousreply 10405/23/2020

French reds generally measure 12-12.5% alcohol. If you see 14.0% on the label, get ready for a hangover. Zinfandels from Lodi, CA tip over 15% and just sniffing them will make you drunk.
