I work till 7 pm on Sundays and leaving the wine shop early so close to the holidays will keep me at the top of the shit list. But I'm leaving early anyway!

i have family holiday party on sunday (starts during the day). I will be attending and will probably be on time...... the catch is since I will be with family during the day chances of me not drinking is very slim. I normally try not to drink prior to offline but you may see a buzed David showing up at beginning of evening. I may be the one who falls alseep at the offline! Miss tbird (i have quite a few stories inlcuding one about a mother/daughter) looking forward to seeing both familiar and new faces!

Hey guys, I just sent out an email to those who have replied affirmatively with some details. There will about 13-14 of us. Getting a decent pour from a 750ml may be a challenge. So if possible, bring a magnum, 2 bottles of the same wine or team up with someone who does.

What an enjoyable evening, great food, great wine, and even better, the company! Thanks to DoubleD for arranging, what a perfect venue it turned out to be; I would definitely return. Next time we're in town, we would love to hook up with everyone again. Special thanks to g-man for taking time friday afternoon to meet us for lunch and xharing the 98 d'yquem...very generous! First class peeps in NY, thanks everyone!

-75 Cos- musty, funky, even after 20 min, nothing else
Soft, slight fruit, balanced, good structure and pedigree, well stored, past peak. Second btl-corked.

-78 Palmer- mature red/black fruit, touch graphite
Fresh!, blk cherry, mature fruit, good structure and pedigree, well stored, past peak, now opening, now more complexity, filling out, very good. One hour later- pretty, feminine wine My wine of the night.
