I opened the 2018 last Thanksgiving. It was ok, but not an oh my wine. I still holding another bottle. Based on the CT notes, people aren’t in love with the ‘18. Rating average is 90 points.

So can anyone tell me what makes my 2019’s something I should look forward to opening, or will the ‘19 be a wine that I’ll bring to a dinner with non geeks?

Isn’t 90 a very good wine? At $20, I’m happy there. It’s meant to be a high quality daily drinker while the SVDs mature. There have been some vintages, sounds like 2019, where they definitely over-perform.

100% this.

Sounds like you were expecting the fireworks of an aged SVD with the $19 entry level bottle?

Clearly I overplayed this for some people.

No apologies though. When you can have as good a wine as this for $20 it's a big deal IMO.
