Here's to you, pops.

Yesterday was the third anniversary of my dad Harold’s death so supper with mum and a chance to raid the cellar. Nothing too special after lunch at top Cape Town restaurant Bizerca courtesy of Flat Roof Manor but at least something not entirely beneath his memory.

Domaine Drouhin Laurène Oregon Pinot Noir 2000 proved big, rich and full of dark cherry fruit (alcohol by volume 14.1%). I thought it lacked a little nuance but I had to admire how primary it was despite being 11 years on from vintage.

Not much more to say other than a thought on the closure of Wine magazine, which Harold founded in 1993. “Sad” is not when a business entity folds, “sad” is when someone you love dies.
