2009 Tommasi Valpolicella 'Rafael'
Not sure what I will enjoy tonight with my bride, but heading to offsite soon and will select a couple of bottles off of the very top shelf.
Our first grandchild was born this week, and we can finally celebrate.
Congratulations Wine + Art.
Tonight our Memphis area group will be doing our annual Christmas dinner with several bottles being opened. I will try to write some impressions, but sometimes you just need to drop the pen and focus more on whats important; the people and the occasion. I may have to do impressions from memory, or what memory I will have left
I'm sure some 2012 NZ Sauv Blanc is available if you want to celebrate the birth year!

Time to start looking for the birth year wine
Live simply, Laugh often, Wine a lot!!!
Congratulations, Gramps! I hear 2012 is a great vintage for Shiraz.
Just one more sip.
Thanks everyone. I did not intend to highjack this tread.
As for the birth year, this little girl will have her entire family loving and toasting her regardless of vintage throughout her life. She was born without a heartbeat and not breathing, and will now be coming home tomorrow and is completely healthy.
Well said, Max
A damned good thing that the girl resembles the females in her family!
All the best to you and yours, w+a. Wonderful stuff!!!
Congratulations to the w+a's!
I'm very happy for you all.

There were some negative comments here recently about the 2009, but nothing wrong with the 06.
Congrats W+A. What birth year 2012's are you looking to put away for him/her?
2007 Renato Ratti Barolo Marcenasco. Just decanted - great nose. Big tannins right off the start.
Would be interested to know your thoughts of this wine.
1999 Mas de Daumas Gassac with cassoulet.
Wine a little on the drying side, but good cherry and raspberry fruit and amazing mature notes of leather, earth, mushrooms. Yum.
and some crappy italian

Congratulations, w+a on your progression from "Dad" to "Grandpa".
2008 Domaine Gille NSG Les Brulees.
I've been told that there is even greater joy in being a grandparent than in being a parent. Congratulations, w+a!
Tonight, NV Bollinger Special Cuvee, probably more than 1 bottle, and whatever our friends serve us afterwards.
All the best to yours and congrats W+A. We know that more females in the family isn't a bad thing, eh?
