Pleasant surprise. Light body with decent Plum and...

1975 Sterling Vinyards Reserve

Excellent vintage Napa Estate bottled Sterling Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautiful color and nose, fruity and smooth all the way to the last glass. Love this cellar hoard I purchased 25 plus cases of early Napa Vinyards, 1971-80. Always a pleasant surprise. ;)

The Bourbon Thread

1990 vintage Ancient Age old stock (plastic 1.5L. Smooth and tasty. My favorite is the porcelain Ducks with Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. We call it Duck Butt Whiskey because the cork is in the Ducks Ass.... Old and aged to a delicious lip smacking flavor. And I'm a new Kentucky (Bourbon) Whiskey drinker.

My first hoard was from a cooled facility (Bordeaux wines) and my second from a lower level storage l...
