Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

I opened a bottle of 41 last night - St Helena cab bottled 5 months ago.

Not good. Harsh. Tasted like a $15 cab.

I realize 5 months is not a lot of time, but there is no way of knowing if these are actually drinking well now without trying a bottle. I won't open another of these until fall.

Re: de Negoce offer

I ordered a case too. It sounds like this is precisely the winery's non-modified, reserve estate cab. For $10 a bottle it's worth a shot. It can join my other dozen De Negoce cases of cab.

It was because of my experience with #15 - and Cameron's second email proclaiming that merlots drink better in youth than cabs (maybe I'm just a marketing sucker) - that I went ahead and bought a case of the most recent Washington merlot that will be shipped in a couple months.

50 - Walla Walla - a "$120 retail for $15" - thought to be Leonetti
68 - Sonoma Mountain - widely believed to be Pride Mountain (which I personally love)

Yeah, that seems like a nice thing to do. Guess I would have never countered that I want a case of wine when the bet was a case of beer - the cost differential is significant. He certainly seems to be a good sport about it, so I would "refund" a large portion of that money in some fashion.
