Allison and I are in, with the caveat that I have zero Argentinian wines in the cellar. But I promise to bring something great. :)

I have no Argentinean wines either, even though I have a large cellar. I sent you a PM Christine, about possibly bringing a Champagne or other options. Let me know what works. Thanks. It will be good to see you again, David .

Egads, David, Jonathan and I each have wine cellars with over 1,000 bottles of vino, and we have zero bottles of Argentine wines? (shocked) As I am a Francophile.............don't cry for me.

Back from Oregon and kinda wish this was Willamette wine dinner (got lots to share) - but it’s not, I digress.

I’m happy to make this South American wine themed :)
And sparkling for those who have nothing from South America!

Since I don't have any Argentinian wines in my cellar, I'm bringing a 2008 Tierra Roja Cabernet Sauvignon (www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=1247502), because it sounds like it could be an Argentinian wine.

And a 2014 Sandhi Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard (www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=2314325), because Sandhi sounds like it could be coming from anywhere.

Have no idea what I'm going to do next month if we go to a Spanish restaurant, same problem - no Spanish wines in the cellar. :)

Christina, thank you again for organizing this, and look forward to seeing everyone!

Hey all! I have a few minutes free today so I going to pick up some Argentine wine for Saturday. I'll see you all on Saturday evening assuming I survive Friday night's offline in south Philly. If you read that thread, the amount of wine (and perhaps food) is getting downright scary! (Christine, I have been gathering and cellaring Oregon pinots from the stellar 2008 vintage for a few years with a goal of putting together a themed vintage pinot tasting. I'll let you know when it goes from theoretical to the planning stage.)

Not sure of the wine glasses at our venue. As I am bringing 12 glasses for champagne/riesling/sauterne for tonight's offline in Philly (there is a picture of the glass in that thread), I will bring those tomorrow together with 6 decanters. As I am driving a wagon, I am also bringing 12 larger bowled red wine glasses so we can compare and contrast.

Ok, this is friggin' cool - a supper club offline!!! Wish we had those out here in Socal, but I can fondly remember those in Wisconsin (still go each time I visit) - not sure how a wine event would work at any of them, however...particularly because I'm too busy loading up on massive $3.50 Old Fashioneds!
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

Sounds like you are supremely prepared!! I can’t wait to hear how tonight’s philly offline went. The restaurant for Saturday night has electric glassware. I’m definitely bringing my own stems :)

I rummaged through my stash and found two “definite” bottles for tonight

2011 Bodega Noemia Malbec (Patagonia) - this is my nice contribution

2008 Benegas Libertad Vineyards Finca Libertad (Mendoza) - Bordeaux style blend. - this is the “God only knows” contribution

Still determine the white...

No Unico in your cellar?? [swoon.gif]
No Unico here either, but I do have a 2013 Alion by VS.
