2006 Tobin Jame, James Gang Reserve, Paso Robles, Cabernet Sauvignon. No, this is not the same as the Silver Reserve that comes with the shipments. It is one of two we acquired at a different time. This one weighed in at 14.2% alcohol.

Just like the Silver Reserve from the same year, it was more than ready to go. It was jammed packed with fruit up front and on the plate, and the tannin was perfectly smooth. The finish lingered.

We matched it with rib eye steak rubbed with Morton rub and grilled over charcoal and mesquite chips. Sides were fresh corn on the cob, and salad with our own lettuce and local veggies.

This is a great way to spend a Saturday night in air conditioned comfort.

Second one tonight, even better than the last one. This time the rib eye was two inches thick. We seared and roasted it in the toaster oven for twelve minutes, and it came out fine; and we also had dinner rolls and salad with store bought stuff in it. Still a great winter dinner. The reason for the toaster oven was that there was stollen in the big oven.
