Thanks. I was very impressed with all the 2009s we tasted last summer, from the CdRs to the top of the line wines.

weird, I was going to do the same tonite, but it was my last bottle and was hoping to do a 2000, 03, 05 tasting. I went for a 2007 Renegade Wine Co Columbia Valley Cab instead, mainly because I had nothing from Cahors or Fronsac in my cellar.

This thing called cabin fever is not healthy. Smile


Nice wine! I think the Leroy 1978 Chambertin was my WOTY a few years ago.


In my dreams tonight, I will simply tote your wine bag. Wink

You do indeed dwell in Utah.

Easy there, Tex; just trying to get over a cold. Wink


I have not been sick in 17 years (knock on wood) but feel like I'm pushing my luck. Two weeks in Europe, and now a crazy cold week in Dallas may be too much.

I'm off to Southern California for five days next week. Cool

I have been fortunate to evade the "bugs" that my son brings home from preschool, and we are fastidious hand-washers in our home. This time I wasn't so lucky.

You think you have cabin fever. Mad
