Parkfield, California, March 31, 2011—I FORGET HOW IT came in; March is going out like a lamb in this curious setting in Central California. Parkfield, Population 18. The drive was magnificent; the accommodations are comfortable; the dinner was, well, sufficient.
L. and I split a New York steak — grass-fed from animals raised on the ranch here. Before, the "veggie tray": raw broccoli, carrot, and celery, with a sort of yoghurt dip. With, a baked potato (also shared) and a small piece of garlic-buttered "French" bread. Good enough; but then, in places like this, we aren't too critical.
Syrah, Parkfield, 2002 (!) (acetic at first, but drifting toward enjoyable as the steak proceeded)
