Every year before the football season starts, on the first Saturday night I drink a really nice bottle of wine, and watch old football videos to get fired up for the next day. Silly tradition, I know, but I always look forward to trying one of my best bottles. Plus, I am a huge football fan and invite people over to watch the games at my house on the NFL Ticket. Opening this bottle is kind of a kickoff to the entire weekend.
The last 2 seasons I opened a 1999 Penfolds Grange, and thoroughly enjoyed both of them.
This year, I want you guys to pick what I should drink. My cellar isn’t huge, but I have a few nice ones that I have saved. All of the ones listed are the only one of that vintage I own, so make it count!
*I know a few of these I’d be drinking too early, but I don’t mind experimenting with young, quality wines.
Eric, I’ve had 3 of the 5, only the LB from the French and it is a superb bottle, but it should be a keeper, you could possibly get it to the right spot with a lot of fiddling around with air time, but why bother. The Insignia is a superb wine drinking perfectly for me. The clear choice without a doubt. I know I’ve had the Caymus SS a few times, but can’t remember how much I liked the wine!
