Please PM me if you wish to get added/removed to list; this will allow for consistent time stamping in case there is overage.

I defer to groups wishes on Champagne (please post below your preference or donation of a 10th bottle!)
Please send me your wines now or closer to date
Please PM me any suggestions or post here below

Don't you just love a new kid moving in on the block and a starting off with a big splash! I'll bite. My Barbaresco collection is a bit light, but I'll go for the Barolo dinner. I have to check my actual cellar, but if Cellartracker is right, how about a 2000 A. Conterno Granbussia.

Nerve racking for all sorts of reasons. Does bringing a sparkling red nebbiolo preclude me from future invites? How many stems is not enough or too much? Who is going to manage the pouring? Jay Hack has my favorite avatar and he is really going to come too!

Does bringing a sparkling red nebbiolo preclude me from future invites? Absolutely

How many stems is not enough or too much? I used to think it was weird that people brought their own glasses. Now I think it's weird when they don't. I have 5 boxes in my office in case of emergencies.

Who is going to manage the pouring? Definitely a first world problem if I ever heard one.

Jay Hack has my favorite avatar and he is really going to come too! Grossly over-rated, although my wife the criminal defense lawyer repeatedly reminds me that it will be Exhibit A in my criminal trial.

How do you dinner + plates + glasses? I can see 8 glasses being great, letting wine evolve in the glass, etc., equally - letting you go back and revisit etc. But this seems only feasible for a "tasting" with some platters of cheese/charcuterie, vs. a full on dinner with a full plate in front of you.

After perusing my small but quality selection of Barolos in my cellar, I have decided that I will bring a 2005 A. Conterno Cicala. It will be nice to compare to Jay's 2000.

This restaurant is literally around the corner from my office. If anyone wants to drop off bottles early for decanting or just storage so you do not have to schlepp (an Italian term) them all over the city, I will only take a small taste.

Anyone up for the Bepe Rinaldi tribute dinner being hosted by Levi Dalton on 10/8? Or, the Chambers St. tastings on 10/13 and 11/10?

Going to all three of the Chambers tastings. Looks like some others from here going as well. Look forward to meeting perhaps ahead of dinner.

Sorry for the ambiguity, I was referring to the our own dinners, organized on this board, that were coming up at the same time.

I'll be in NYC for work on the 17th and I'm staying nearby. Is there a spot left? I will confirm shortly but should be able to join if so. I can source a good bottle in town.

Great night last night. Had a little of everything: half opened bottles hiding under the table, a 10PM double-steak order, and the ah-so vs. durand vs. pocket wine opener dance off (and yes, the pocket wine opener won). Thanks to those who generously brought extras!

Will leave detailed tasting notes to others and another thread, but my quick ranking:
2001 Scavino Cannubi 1/7 - Had everything/lacked nothing
2013 Burlotto Monvigliero 2/7 - Others suggested it was 3-4. Strawberry jam on the nose to all, disagreement on palette/structure, and consensus surprise over 100pts!
2008 Oderro Brunate 3/7- Some dark purple fruit and and a dark chocolate/cigar long finish
2000 Sandrone Le Vigne 4/7 - Felt light, but a nice chocolately, fine structured finish came in to save the day
2007 Sandrone Le Vigne 5/7 - Others preferred this over the 2000 today; disagreement on how it would lay over time. I got a little oak and a more simple finish.
2005 Aldo Conterno Cicala 6/7 - Saved by the Brovia
2006 Brovia Garblet Sue 7/7 - More time in the glass did not save this one

I'm writing regarding the Barbaresco that I'm bringing on the 17th. After a good bit of research I decided to go with the top o the line Pio Cesare. It's a 2011, I hope no one has any major objections to it's youth.
