Drinking in the cemetery.
Hollywood Forever's Saturday night movie extravaganzas are a regular event around our house. We cook all day, load up our food and wine, hopefully have a friend who's nice enough to be our designated driver and head off to the cemetery. Last night was My Man Godfrey, 1936, starring Carole Lombard. It was so good - it really was - but it was really cold and the four of us snuggled and fell dead asleep for most of it. Ce la Vie!
We drank a nice little Alsatian Pinot Noir, Heber-Bleger, 2005 (I wrote
about the gewurztraminer a while ago). It was a wee bit dirty, like horse poo and leather, but it didn't bother me - I usually hate those aromas. It really started to blow off once it sat in the clunky water glass for a while. I like these wines that have lots of acid and tang. They my kind of drink.
Oh, just a note... the color was brownish and a little weird, but it didn't taste oxidized. $18 at Cheese Store of Silverlake and Silverlake Wine.
Pictured is my friend, Dave Hale. Also photographer of what we wished was Alfred Hitchcock's grave!
