Tales from the Crypt - Culling my dad’s cellar

Exactly!..I was just really getting into wine in the late 80’s/early 90’s and I was shopping at Wine Library and Gary’s Wine (and other smaller wine stores here in NJ) on a weekly basis, and I bought so many of the same wines as your Dad Bu3ker!..I have fond memories of drinking those classics…

Same here!

Arrowood was formative for me, and the photo of the 1992 Bancroft Ranch was like having someone turn on the lights in a room in my mind that’s been dark for a long time. We used to sell that wine at a restaurant I worked at, and we drank a fair bit as well.

Back in the day, Groth, Montelena, Arrowood, Beringer (PR and BC), and Peter Michael Les Pavots were some of our favorite wines, along with Ridge Lytton Springs Zinfandel.

1992 Arrowood Merlot was my lightning bolt red wine.

I have an affinity for Chateau St. Jean and Arrowood…as my dad, who passed away in 2010, used to live a couple miles down the road from those wineries, before they moved to Nevada in 2004. When we visited, we would always hit those! :heart:
