Re: Is "Never drink a Bordeaux that is less than 20 years old" just a silly idea.

I think anything younger than 1990 is too young. In the last couple months I've had 4 Bdx's from 1966-1990 that were drinking great, the two from 96 and 00 needed hours to come around and even then were not nearly as good as the older ones. BTW, the 66 Ducru and 75 PLL were both wonderful.

Have done Mt. Wilson half a dozen times or more, Wilson Peak usually once a year but not last year and Mt. Sneffels about the same but not last year. Sneffel's is the easiest 14er to do and Mt. Wilson/El Diente the hardest. Last year I concentrated on the 13er's which are more technical and more fun.
