Would you say it's ready yet? I just have a single bottle.


Stay thirsty my friends.

Planning to have fresh Dover sole when we go out to dinner tonight, and taking along 2007 Paul Coulon Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Boisrenard (as well as my wife Smile).

There will be a yet to be determined Champagne to start off the long-awaited weekend too.

Cheers!

From the long awaited weekend comment I take it all worked out to your satisfaction? Cheers.

2006 Ferrer Bobet Priorat

Not the 08 that everyone's been raving about, but I think I'd give this vintage a shot too.

2008 Ferrer Bobet Priorat - first bottle of this and underwhelmed. First sip revealed a flabby wine. Over time it started to show some structure and fruit but after 2 hours I feel it hadn't shown what it was capable of. Probably hold the rest for a few years as this was not a bottle to brag about.

+1

I had this a couple weeks ago off of a recommendation, and was completely underwhelmed.

- 2007 Dunn Napa (a combo of a celebration & just checking in on the bottle). It needed a good (3) hours of air, but it was surprisingly open for business. I prefer the '06 by a long shot, but this is still great stuff.

- 2010 Belle Glos "Clark & Telephone Vineyard" Pinot (Not fun out of the bottle, but very nice after (2) hours in the decanter). The fluctuation in price on these C&T's is crazy. I bought this one at $26, but I have seen them approach $60. At $26, it's a great buy. At $60, no way...

I had this a few weeks ago and thought it was a solid 90 point wine...may improve one point.

This needs time.


Just one more sip.

2010 Ayoub Pinot Noir ???. Way young, but I've never had an Ayoub before, so I wanted to get a sense for my remaining three bottles. Excellent, but this probably needs three years at least.

One of my Top 10 meals, and with great ease.

I hope it was stellar.

Several people in OR highly reccomended we visit Ayoub when we were out there. Didn't make it, and I've kind of been kicking myself for it. Oh well...

2009 Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. Too young; while pleasurable it shows quite a abit of those menthol/eucalyptus and maracuya notes. Have not had a chilean in a while and would love to understand what gives them these maracuya notes.

Ouch.

Irwin opened one a year ago that was excellent, and I have been drinking a few since.

I'm thinking '89 Bordeaux is not your friend. Razz

That is three I'm aware of.
