? 2008? I think the frist vintage of Rambouillet was 2006.

Cool My favorite vineyard of all the Ramey Chardonnays.

I opened an '07 with the latour67s and Board-Os last year that was fantastic.

Oops! Sorry-- it was 2008. Don't know what I was thinking. Red Face

I'm guessing a 1998 wouldn't need much more time, but first it would have to exist.

Tonight with gnocchi with carmelized onion and fennel, 2007 Nipozzano Chianti Ruffina, very nice wine that is drinking well now but will still see better days.

No worries. Nice note - letting the 08s sleep peacefully. The 06 was dynamite. Absolutely love Dusky Goose. Cool

2010 Kirkland cabernet sav.

My father brought it over for dinner. Not bad, certainly better than some of the really cheap California cabernets. A cellar defender for a Tuesday night.

He said it was about $13 a bottle.

Any thoughts on this Longboarder? The 1990 Fuligni Riserva consumed with VinT, OTW, and Futronic was delicious over the holidays.

2003 Petrolo Galatrona - third time trying this wine and finally some complexity. IMO, it needs another couple years. But, it's already 10 years old...

FWIW: Just took a quick look at the LCBO and SAQ and was amazed at the price disparity. LCBO selling the 2009 for $125, while the SAQ, still making a profit I am sure, has it for $98.25.

Wow.

2009 WesMar Pinot Noir Hellenthal Vineyard

Funny, cheapest I have found this in Calgary is $135!! Some of the pricing out here is absolutely ridiculous.
