Re: Bring cash and stems: Los Gatos CA Sept 17: Older Rhys

Well, I'm the worst.

My colleague in SD is unexpectedly on emergency PTO and I'm being forced to go to SD this week to cover for him at a conference. I'll be gone this upcoming week.

Looks like a wait list person gets to benefit from my misfortune. Sorry guys

Bleh, sorry again. 1st week of school for my son, he just started kindergarten and my daughter just started a new preschool as well. They’re both still adjusting and I just plumb forgot. Could have used a nice wine dinner too to relax.

Different. Better young. Doesnt require age to be delicious. This I get. Yes. At $150-$160, sure, I’d buy other things. But the Ursules has a lot more varied pricing in the market than Dom or Krug.

Ursules is a step up in complexity from the Val Vilaine. I've yet to be impressed with Bechalin, Presle, or Haut lemblee.

Boloree is intellectual but less seductive.

The Rose Creux d'Enfers is stunning though.

I don't understand why people insist on wine with Asian food. Just drink beer or whatever the local alcohol is like sake for sushi. I've been eating at Old Mandarin Islamic since it opened and their food does not go well with wine. Ice cold Tsing Tao. Or tea.
