Why is it so expensive? It's only a 90 point wine on Wine Spectator.

What is man, when you come to think upon him, but a minutely set, ingenious machine for turning, with infinite artfulness, the fine red wine of Shiraz into urine?

I remember seeing a bottle at retail after release - around US$600. I remember thinking sure, this MIGHT appreciate over time to like US$1,200 but maybe I should pass because it's not a great vintage ... :)!

An Assortiment 1991 DRC (mixed case of 12 with 1 RC, 3 LT etc.) was offered to me after release for 1.300 Deutschmark. Those were the days.

The 50 bucks reduction is a "joke" ...
WS points are close to meaningless (imho) ...

I haven´t tasted the RC 91 but all other (red) cuvees incl. LT - and it´s a GREAT vintage for DRC, and the wines are aproaching full maturity ... imho the best vintage (for DRC) between 1990 and 1999.

Crazy as it seems, but DRC RC '91 went for $19,600 at a Christies auction (all in) back in December. Wild. I would have tried my hand at a new car...

From the Wine Market Journal, the average auction hammer has jumped up quite a bit over the years.

Cody beat me to it. I know everyone is being cute and funny, but this actually IS a great price for an incredible wine.
