Had the 1991 VH recently and it was still primary. Not ready.
Good to know Loren, many thanks. 1991 is a great vintage, vs 1990, a good one, but gives me hope that my bottles will be in good shape.
Thank you Tom. Penciled in for before spring.
Four years ago I served a magnum of '85 Volcanic Hill to the X-Pensive Winos. It was delicious and still going strong.
Yeah, I agree. For that much coin I will buy other vintages
I think this is really where a knowledgeable customer is going to take their business away from Napa. $350 when I can get 2 bottles of PLL or other BDX either at or below $400 makes zero sense for me to buy that $350 bottle of wine.
Agreed, but we all know there is a model for this.
Exactly. It’s the same response/reaction I had when I read your post about Cathiard. There’s just better alternatives.
1994 Red Rock Terrace was delicious this past weekend. 12.5% alc. was a bonus.
It was just a few years ago you could buy these at a futures discount inside $200/bottle! Like others, they sold and new owner jacks prices 75%+. Unfortunate and at some point…unsustainable?
Exactly. Could get them from 175-185 per bottle. Sad to see it go this way.
I bought a few 2007 Volcanic Hill for well under $200 some years ago…any thoughts on when to drink these younger DCs or how long they will last compared to last vintages?
They should be ready now but try one first.
The wines are fantastic, that’s all I have to say on that
