Enjoyed at lunch today.
2004 Artadi Vina El Pison
NV Joseph Perrier cuvée royale
2002 Domaine Tollot-Beaut Aloxe-Corton
Would you say it's ready yet? I just have a single bottle.
Stay thirsty my friends.
2008 Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva.
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 ).
There will be a yet to be determined Champagne to start off the long-awaited weekend too.
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.

Apostrophes don't make things plural.
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.
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.
Say NO to Shiraz!
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.
2009 Chateau de Cruzeau (white)
2000 Paolo Manzone, Barolo, Serralunga
2007 Stefania, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chaine D'Or
1989 Krug Collection ( worth every dollar)
1989 Leoville Las Cases
1989 Vieux Chateau Certan
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...
NV Vranken Demoiselles rose' (wife's choice) for lunch.
2010 Blason de Bourgogne st veran for room
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.

I'm sure you'll get a chance to try one of mine in the future.
My last bottle was oxidized (3 days ago).
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
Irwin opened one a year ago that was excellent, and I have been drinking a few since.
My last one was corked. Such is wine....
I'm thinking '89 Bordeaux is not your friend.
That is three I'm aware of.
