Do customers still have to go out and obtain their own ABRA permit to use the tasting room, or has that changed?

My understanding is that no one has received a "Tasting Permit" from ABRA because they've never actually issued one to a private collector so the regulators don't know what to do or what to issue.

That’s not GC Burg, Bobby, that’s the sprinkler system. Did you set the place on fire again?

Yes and yes. Was in there today and there were a few people enjoying older Napa cab. Really nice to try an ‘82 Dunn HM (tired), 89 Opus One ( on Fire) and a ‘94 Dalla Valle Maya (spectacular).

That’s just mean.

The Dunn was delicious, especially out of magnum.

My astral projection will be there, Bobby. Thanks for the head's up (chest up, eyes up, prayed up, as they say). I can stay late to finish bottles, since my astral body is not limited by physical barriers liked locked tasting room doors. My astral body cannot grasp stemware, which may pose a problem.

Great event the other day! Good to see so many familiar faces. I though the Margaux showed really well but the ‘05 Ramonet Montrachet was simply spectacular. Happy to open up some more of those at the offline next week.

Joe, that's a great idea!!! I'll swing by Domaine later today to start the planning process. Also will pull some of my older Dominus stash and do some "selective sampling" to ensure quality is in line with expectations. I'll be in the tasting room later this afternoon if anyone wants to see how the 80s Dominus is holding up.

Noah, lunch just opened up for me and I'm now planning on a quick bite downtown in the G-Town area. Available to meet Milano at 12:30? Chef set aside a bottle of the '04 Conterno Monfortino (riserva), which pairs beuatifully with gnocchi and mondays!

Great to hear Alicia! A strong addition to the tasting for sure. In addition to the Jamet vertical, I'll be adding three bottles I won from Noah (thank you Patriots for yet another Super Bowl!!!). Yeah they are too young to open but why not share the spoils of war with the gang? Also not sure where I would store the big boy as storage has become an issue. Who is taking responsibility for the suckling pig? Joe still on that?

Don’t think even Cros Parantoux will hold up to that. Too late to switch to 80’s Bordeaux or something?
