One of us, me or WS, is out of touch with which wines should be on the top 100 list! Eek

Let's take your cellar and Board-O's cellar, put them up for auction, then decide who is out of touch. Wink

What does the credit card company say... priceless.

I'm sure both of us! Big Grin
BTW, I missed one and now, I have three three bottles in the "Top 100" , the 2008 Kosta Browne, Maybach, and Saxum.
Took a quick look at the list this morning and I have 4:

07 Flaccianello
09 St.-Urbans-Hof Riesling Kabinett
07 Dagueneau Silex
07 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet Clavoillon

These also happen to be the 4 best wines on the list Smile

The only other wine on the list that I would like to have is the 07 Beaucastel Hommage, but it’s a bit more than I care to spend on wine.
I've consumed a half dozen of the Oregon and Washington wines, but none are currently in my cellar. The WA reds are all great QPR, but only the Owen Roe Syrah is a keeper.

I'd certainly have chosen different Oregon wines.
Most are far from the best in their class. The Evening Land project is big outside money elbowing out long time local vintners, so that is a definite no-go for me.

Overall, I'm amazed at how little interest I have in owning any of the 100 choices, whether for stylistic reasons or poor QPR. I will eventually purchase a few. Right now my count is zero. In most years it has been 5 to 12.

I can't believe that anyone is buying the 2007 Ruffino Modus at the prices listed on wine searcher. Any other vintage of that wine sells for $18 all day long, and free shipping if you look hard. Wine searcher shows it at $45 and $59?!? I sure hope nobody is paying that when they can get 3 bottles of the 2006 for the same price.

Unfortunately no one has probably tried the wine yet to know whether or not it's worth the hype. I snagged a few at around $30 when the review first came out.
