But you are blessed with neighbours who have older vintages of all those wines (and more), and who like to share.
If you open the gates, they will come.
I know you are right, but I feel a little inadequate. I had a small tasting group of noobs like myself, but that fell apart. I think we were suffering from limited access to older wines and inexperience. Right now, the oldest wine in my cellar is 2001 and that is only one bottle.
I feel as though I would be a bit of a leech if
I was drinking everyone else's aged wine and had little to offer in return.
On Sunday, I am back on a strict diet for six weeks. After that is done, I will try for a local dinner with some of the more "experienced" winos in the community. I am anxious to learn and maybe some of my younger wines will be of interest too...
