That's good to know. I hope the '06 is similar, as I bought a few from Costco last year.

In the United States, anyone can be President. That's the problem!
2010 Quivet Kenefick Ranch Syrah. Such a baby, but yummy.
2007 Aubert Pinot Noir UV Vineyard
05 Melville pinot noir verna's
08 substance syrah
2009 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc – Best Esprit blanc I have had to date. The 09 included more Picpoul than normal which is a good thing in my book as I really love the acidity in a well made Picpoul.
Wines from the holiday weekend:
2010 A.J. Adam Dhroner Hofberger Riesling Kabinett – Another good showing for this producer and 2010 overall which I much prefer to 2009.
2011 Arnot-Roberts Chardonnay Watson Ranch – Solid Chard for the money. Nicely balanced.
2010 Rhys Pinot Noir San Mateo County – To early, but still enjoyable. Earthy on the nose with nice red fruits on the palate. Still a little shy, but should warm up in a couple of years.
2006 Quevedo LBV
1996 Quevedo Colheita
NV Villar d'allen 20 yr tawny

We polished off a bottle of this after Thanksgiving dinner. Loved the rich caramel and chocolate overtones.
What did you think of this - I have a bottle headed my way soon.
I enjoyed it (88 points is what I gave it), but would've preferred it sitting outside on a warm day. Had some spice and floral aroma & taste.
For our anniversary dinner:
Jacques Selosse Substance
Nice! Happy anniversary.
Just one more sip.
