Happy birthday! All the best to you! Pop a good one tonight (if you have not already).
happy 71st to Joel Peterson, one of california's finest and 48th to Q-tip the Abstract, one of Linden Blvd's finest.
Happy 30th to Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews yesterday. Hopefully he was force-fed some cake and short rib poutine. The plant-based diet is working for Chara, but not for JT.

I went to a tasting of the 97s in late 2000 and didn't enjoy it, actually. Every one of them tasted more or less the same - like sweet sticky over-sugared wine. On the plus side, it ensured that I would be patient with my bottles and let them mature!

ah

lots of water, they've changed up the format for these.

they'll typically bring a btl at 20, 10 and last release to compare against the current release, so you get a good sense of how that vineyard/property ages.

Sadly, such tastings here are as rare as a Republican in Hawaii, so doubt I'll get a chance to taste new releases here again. Just as well, as I stopped buying with the 2007 vintage.
