Hello fellow wine freaks...
I've been absent from the boards due to having to procure some work to pay for my expensive habits. Oh, I haven't stopped buying (!!!), but I have not visited the site much over the past few months.
A friend of mine recently found out about my newfound passion. He was a big buyer in the late 80s early 90s and has alot of goodies in his cellar.
When he jokingly asked for a pair of Leafs tickets, I surprised him by saying no problem, but that it would cost him a bottle of GOOD wine.
Now as we wine geeks know, there's nothing quite like sharing a bottle of the GOOD stuff with someone who appreciates GOOD stuff, so perhaps that is the reason why instead of A bottle of GOOD stuff, he showed up at my house with the following:
1986 Chateau Lynch-Bages (WS94...10/89)
1987 Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon (WS93...11/90)
1988 Tignanello (WS95...11/93)
1989 Chateau Figeac (WS91...5/99)
1990 Cos-d'Estournel (WS90...8/00)
1994 Sassicaia (WS88...9/97)
These scores are based on my searches of the ratings on Wine Spectator and include the date of the sampling. As some of these ratings are old, I need some guidance on drinking windows - or am I already too late? When do I drink these?
AND NO LEAFS JOKES PLEASE!!!
