Will wait then !
I hear you. This bottle should have been consumed at least ten years ago. I also have a '91 and three '98s that I need to get to real soon.

Used to be a poster here from Queensland (Pauli) who always said that the St Henri was a 30-year wine. Don't know if I want to wait quite that long, but I've got a few 98's that I'm still letting rest in the cellar.
I've got several 97's in the cellar and they are still going strong. The 91 might be a different story, but your 98's might be in fine shape if well-stored.
What did you think of this?

2004 Resalte Ribera del Duero de Restia
A surprising value that I picked up at Costco last March.
I love this style of wine, it was great with dark fruits not too tight.
Thanks guys...still fighting the damn thing...no wine/champagne for 6 days now.
Say NO to Shiraz!
2007 Ruffino Modus
I liked it.
Had a great nose upon opening; about 45 mins later it went into a dull phase but came back nose wise at the end of the night. Full body with soft tannins plenty of dark fruits, chocolate is what I remember. I will probably open the next one in 2-3 years.

Nice selection! How were the 04s doing?
2005 Domaine Parent Pommard Les Chanlins 1er
The 04's were showing reasonably well, much better than my last experience with them. The Malartic-Lagraviere drank well but nothing about it jumped out at me. I thoroughly enjoyed the Lascombes and felt that it was much more ready than the Cos d'Estournel. The Lascombes was from magnum and showed quite well after a good decant. It will continue to get better with additional cellaring but I won't hesitate to open any of my remaining bottles. The Cos d'Estournel was a little tight(could have used a longer decant) but very enjoyable. Its very well balanced, polished, and concentrated. It is an impressive effort for the vintage and I will let my remaining bottles sleep for another year or so before trying another.
Tomorrow pre-sale tasting of 2011 Bouchard Pere @ Fils and 2011 William Fevre hosted by Luc Bouchard. Will be tasting Chevalier Montrachet tomorrow as well as 1er cru and grand cru from Fevre.
