This thread is grossly lacking in photos...
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)

Rebecca and Jay.

I just wanted to thank you for hosting me and 40 of your closest wine friends on Saturday. It's nice to see my old friends (one of them turned 40) and make new ones. It's always fun putting faces to screen names. The variety of wine + food was delicious. Those cakes at the end did me in.

See you at the next offline.

Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

Oops, I forgot to open it. I went down to the cellar and Tantina was whining and complaining about the lack of good Burgundy, so I got a 2005 Nuits St. George Les Didiers and forgot the Saxum. The 2009 JBV from Magnum was fantastic.
Yes, that's a DM of 1978 Mouton!

Only complaining? [wow.gif] [wow.gif]

which may be very much warranted if there's a lack of good burgs..

The whining reference was just diversion. The truth is that I asked what she liked and she said Burgundy so I went for the 2005 NSG.
