I'm hoping this wine does not make WS top 100 because I don't want the price to increase. If you can't tell, I LOVE the 04. Smile


Ditto what elden41 said. I've not had the pleasure of trying pre-2004 vintages but that '04 is a real gem in my opinion. Simply a delicious wine and a darn good QPR to boot.

BTW, if you fly into Portland, Oregon (PDX), there's a small, but quite nice wine bar there (forget the name) that's worth hanging out in if you have some extra time. That's where I first had the chance to try the '04 Oroppas. After a glass I knew it was something I wanted to purchase so I bought it right then and there.
