Re: 1973

In the last 5 years, we have had the following 1973s: Mondavi Reserve (1 was decent+. 1 was stellar, hitting it's prime at 2 hour decant. ) Chappellet (Awesome. Still young. It was rocking. Prime at 2 hour decant.) Grange (WOW!!!! Enough said!) About 10 years ago, I had a Martha's (at Tom and Martha...

Oh geez. I didn't even think about that one. (Though not what I chose.)

Easter wine trivia

Having a hard time deciding on an Easter wine? I went with a varietal wine whose name contains the word "easter" in it. D'uh! :-) WHAT did I choose??? (There may be more than one answer, but mine is a grape, not a producer or region. And I didn't use all of the letters.) EDIT: The letters within the...

Which 1980 wine? (Pichon Lalande or Guigal Hermitage)

I am torn between which one to buy. Seems like both have had good showings of late. I am leaning towards
the PL simply because of my love for PL.
Any thoughts? Well, besides BUT BOTH (which would make the most sense.)
Thank you in advance!

Re: 2014 Switchback Ridge 30% off a case w/free shipping

These are really nice wines! The PS this vintage was extra special (imho) as it contains more of the killer "old vines" juice than normal. The OV were planted in the 50s. (The PS and the OV PS were always fermented and barreled separately.) Speaking of PS, Bob (Foley) should have been included in th...

Re: $200 Champagne-The Most Pleasure NOW...?

In all fairness, I have not had the 95 CH, but I have had a lot from the 95 vintage. The 95 will of course be the more "mature" choice of the two. That being said, I have had 2 bottles of the 08 DP thus far. A GLORIOUS wine! As a young wine, it reminds me a lot of the 96, but a touch more mature. I ...

WTB: Cooling unit (self contained)

Wine Mate or Vinotemp or WhisperKOOL.

Hoping to find a used unit. Perhaps you have upgraded to a larger model.

It would be for a very small room holding <50 cases. No racks, just cases.

BINGO!
Two replies, two great answers.

Saboring is, of course, the most fun option!
I too had a sparkler that none of us could get the cork out of. (Must not have gotten its fair share of the paraffin or silicone coating.)
A cork screw did the trick.

Sulfur compound(s) in a wine made in a reductive style.

Interesting tidbit Rich. Thank you.

Speaking of SQN, we've been drinking some of the 2011 reds. I don't care anyone says about the 2011s, these are pretty awesome, albeit YOUNG. The 11 Grenache was still quite closed after a 5 hour decant.
