Re: $3000 bottle

I see they do a cigar and wine pairing experience, I’m not a big cigar smoker but wouldn’t that make it so you couldn’t taste the wine?

Re: Potential Wineries to Visit in Napa

Anyone have any thoughts on visiting Fantesca, Gandona, or Hourglass? I tasted at Fantesca in February of 2018 as I wanted to taste some wines made by Heidi Barret, when I was booking my tasting with La Sirena they offered to do it at Fantesca and allow me to add on a tasting of Fantesca afterwards...

Re: Any reviews on ACME, 750, or K Laz in Napa for tastings?

I have done the tasting at K Laz twice now and would definitely recommend it. Both times were with Garret, he'll work with you to make sure that you get to try unique things to your taste and will make sure to not serve you things which you already receive on allocation for example. I just did the c...

Their address listed in wine searcher is just some industrial park, which does not look like a warehouse.

Has anyone used this retailer based out of Ft. Lauderdale that appears to be online only? They are the only retailer that lists a particular bottle that I want, but I've never heard of them, and thanks to their name it is extremely difficult to search for reviews etc... on this board, or the interne...

As a forum lurker I always enjoy these posts as I get to learn about new places to visit, so I see no reason to be (almost) apologetic about it... glad to hear that you had a good time and those that are bored with these posts can easily ignore them. Thanks!

your issue may be with the timing of the dinner. if you have to order, aged nebbiolo ideally needs a couple weeks standing after shipping for sediment to settle. If time is not an issue, check out Chambers St Wines. awesome selection of high quality, good provenance italian wine wth age. Would 2 we...

Re: Good Classically Styled Barolo/Barbaresco for $250 or less

I am going to a wine dinner soon and would like to bring a nice aged Barolo or Barbaresco that is classically styled in the $250 range (or less of course). What's your definition of aged? Preferences vary. You can drink 2004 or 2001 with pleasure, or 2007 or 2008, but also 1978 and 1974 and on back...

Good Classically Styled Barolo/Barbaresco for $250 or less

Hello,

I've tried doing some searches but haven't come up with anything. I am going to a wine dinner soon and would like to bring a nice aged Barolo or Barbaresco that is classically styled in the $250 range (or less of course). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Well I'm very glad that you didn't see my post as you enjoyed the pairings a lot, sounds like I might have to give them another try the next time I'm out there.

Headed to Napa tomorrow for Anniversary weekend...

I went to Redd about a year ago and thought it was very good. I was advised to avoid the wine pairings but I didn't heed this advice and felt like I wasted my money on the wine pairings as they were very disappointing, the food was great though.

Poor Man's Wines

Welcome, Tim. Hang around, you'll do well participating. The first question I will ask is does the Petrvs drinker want 6 bootles in place of his prized Petrvs? Drinking 'as good' is probably is not his goal. It's still a good question though as to the 'wider' sweep 'can we drink as good for less'. ...

I was just reading through another post and I was interested in the following quote: "At the highest levels, you can almost always find a wine that is almost as good and costs a fraction. For Petrus you can get a 6 pack of VCC For Latour, also a 6 pack of Pontet Canet" This made me wonder what are s...

Coravin changing the taste of a bottle?

I have been using my Coravin for over a year now, almost exclusively with the vintage needle, and have noticed changes in some bottles, while they haven't gone bad they definitely seem different. For example I had a Meursault that was very vibrant and crisp with the first glass, when revisited a wee...
