Good to know that I can still hold onto the 2001 Pirramimma I have in the cellar has more life in it.

2007 Cedar Creek Platinum Meritage - this lived up to its billing, very nice wine from the Okanagan.

How was this? I still have 2 in the cellar.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

We had one of these tonight and I agree with your assessment. It also smelled like sweet kool-aid. This was the first Stefania that I haven't really enjoyed - the 4 of us who had it actually disliked it quite a bit. I hope it changes dramatically with time in the bottle, but not sure. Confused

I think it needs time in the bottle. Usually this wine is showing well right away, but the 2010 seems to have some high acidity. I had a couple, but am leaving the rest alone for 4 - 6 months.

On the other hand, the "Nueva Casa de los Padres" is drinking very nicely right now...

Jorge, I hope you are right on the Haut Tubee. And I agree about the Nueva Casa; we had one on New Year's Eve and it was excellent.

The 94 was phenomenal, amazing, <insert you favorite superlative here>.

I've had a significant # of 98's and while this one was good, it did not measure up to what this wine normally is - I think this particular bottle was ever-so-slightly off. But it was still pretty darn good.

This was the first time I've had the 2 side-by-side. The 94 was my clear favorite.

Now to decide when the 92's get opened? Cool

I also hope jorge is right about the Haut Tubee, and I'll let my other 4 bottles rest a bit. I've had a couple of the 2010, and they were consistent with what you and others have mentioned.

I wasn't a huge fan of the Nueva Casa at this point, though. It wasn't showing much at all for me. I'll see what some time does to that one as well.
