Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

38 syrah was a huge disappointment. Hi Hank - the wine bottled on 11/19...way behind the other's from the same producer (mid-August) and even those wines are just starting to come round (see my note son the Viognier...it has as much baby fat on it as a mountain cab).

Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

Cameron, glad to hear you don't expect significant bottle variation within a single wine (though obviously some level of variation is a thing, no matter the winemaker). There certainly is a pretty wide variation between the wines, though. At this point, I find maybe half to 2/3 of the wines really ...
