Lol mine's gotta be over 24". Flushed it down the toilet the other day!


eeuw.... I was thinking more of an anatomical part in a vertical orientation.


A tail?

No affiliation, but Binny's can add the 82 to that for you pretty cheap. Maybe I'll pick one up and see if they are any good.

Hmmmm, I'd be curious how a 375ml has held up. That would be a nice add! I doubt they ship to TX, though.

Thanks for the heads up!

Buyer beware. I'm pretty sure several local forum members have reported that wine as DOA after buying from Binny's, possibly due to uncertain storage issues. I have no problem with Binny's and am not trying to keep any business away from them, but perhaps do a forum search first. Good luck!

Good choice for a vertical, PH, and impressive length, too.

My longest is Domaine Pegau Cuvee Reservee. I have 1998, then 2001-2009 (I think I get to count 2002, since they didn't make that vintage).


Stay thirsty my friends.

Dunn "Howell Mountain" Cab Sauv.

'85, '87, '97, 2002-08

*Based on a recent tasting of the '97 & '02, the rest of these (sans the '85 & '87) will probably rest for a LONNNNG time!

I'm hard pressed to think of another wine that has been this consistent over this many years. It also shows nice variation from vintage to vintage while still maintaining a recognizable house style. Love it.

I was one of those to take a chance on it and yeah, I thought it was past its prime. I am also a big believer in the "no such thing as good wines, only good bottles" proverb, and having said that, have not been tempted to see if a second bottle would be any different. If they blew it out at $15-$20, or it was on someone else's dime, I'd take another shot, but wouldn't expect too much.

As to my longest verticals...

Sixteen vintages of Duhart Milon, 1975-2009

twelve vintages of:
Philip Togni, 1990-2001
Paloma Merlot, 1995-2008 (no '98 or '00)

Eleven vintages of Ridge Monte Bello: 1991, 1995, 1997 and 2002-2011

I really value diversity in my cellar, so the closest thing to a vertical for me would be for Chapoutier Ermitage Blanc De L'Orée ('98-'00, '03, '06, '09-'10).

For me:

Chateau Kirwan, Margaux: 98, 00, 01, 06, 07, 08
Chateau Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien: 01, 04, 05, 06, 08

Other than that, many vertical of 3 vintages, maybe 7-8 different Chateau or Domaine...

Longest vertical NOT posted here (and not drinking): I guess the guy that bought the 38 vintage Mouton vertical at the Vintages auction a while back doesn't frequent this forum.

Update - I met the fellow at another auction. Turns out he bought it for the art on the labels. ALL are on a wall display in his home along with other vintages.

Sounds like something W + A might do.
