waiting for Sarah’s tally. As for me, I was good till 24 hours ago and bought 2 cases of stuff. And being on call, unable to drink for 2 weeks, doesn’t help consumption.
The no drinking on call is the worst. I have more impulse buying while on call.

Re: When your partner/SO goes dumpster diving in “your” cellar . . . .

My wife and two of her friends drank 6 bottles of
2002 Shafer Hillside Select. She just saw the Shafer and apparently kept grabbing them since she knew where they were in the cellar.
The only bummer was I never got to taste the 2002.
I’m ok with her grabbing the wrong bottles every so often.

Re: Two Very Disappointing, $75 California Wines

Did you consider letting either of them wait for a day? For science? Yes. We did. And did. Even followed the Franc over 2 nights. Not sure the point. There is nothing in my post that says I popped these right off the delivery truck. Understand on the shipping issue I meant after opening the wines T...

Re: Blind tasting of chardonnays vs. white Burgs

I've had a few of the Tyler Chardonnay and Pinot and have absolutely loved every bottle.
Thanks for the reminder to go get more for my cellar. Well, more likely for more immediate consumption.

My wife and I usually really like the Cep syrah and this bottle is no different.

Re: Reccos for Restaurants for Ireland and Iceland

I’ve been to Patrick Guilbaud twice. I would go back again.
We had a great meal at the Greenhouse as well.
Otherwise we ate in pubs etc and drank vats of beer.

Re: TN: 2014 Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon

Chops certainly fits the bill. I rather like the place. The last time the wife and I were there I have no recollection of leaving and walking next door to the St Regis. I was rather over-served.
Great steak.

Re: Rye

I grabbed the Basil Hayden Dark Rye thinking I was getting a straight rye.
Imagine to my surprise that it’s a rather odd combo of port and two ryes.
I don’t mind it.
Can’t remember exactly how much I spent on it.
I don’t think I’ll have a bunch of guests asking for some
