iso: Black Chook wines

The Vendome in Toluca Lake has it for about the same price as Silver Lake. Around $18 a bottle I think.

LA Foodie in Montreal for Weekend--Suggestions?

Au Pied Du Cochon if you like Foie Gras. The whole menu is foie gras and pork.

This month's haul from The Wine House in West LA

I would not describe it as bold or full, but it is crisp and there is still some good spice from the Shiraz. We serve it as a starter in the summer. It is refreshing and not overpowering, so that you can move on to a heavier wine easily. I usually put it out with a wine/cheese plate.

OH, if you want to try something different at the Wine House, they have a sparkling shiraz from Paringa. I think it's only like $8, but bring it to a party and get a lot of comments. Most people haven't had a lot of sparkling red and it's right tasty as well.

I have been getting the Fogarty Gewurtz for a few years now. Just had a bottle of the '04 last night. Very smooth and drinkable.

If you like that one, at Mission Wines they have one from Sineann. It's a little more ($20,) but great flavor and clarity.

What's your house wine?

I really like the 2003 Claret from Steltzner. Can be had for about $15. Bordeaux style blend, but drinks easy and matches well with many foods.
