Blasphemer! Cast of with ye, unclean spirit! Razz
Haha. I know it’s not a popular opinion, but it’s just my opinion on sweet wines in general. I have tried many, including great vintages of d’yquem both young and mature, and I just don’t get them. I don’t have a sweet tooth for food either though. You will rarely see me order a very sweet dessert (or dessert at all) and I have not had a piece of candy since I was a kid. It’s just how my taste buds work I guess. More of the rest of you!

Where in the world have you been hiding? Smile

We need to drink some wine together, soon.

Like you, wine is not my primary passion. Lifting weights has always been number 1 for me and I got away from it. Spent the last 2 years getting back into shape, dropped 45 pounds and trying to find balance. Between food, wine and work I became undisciplined. For me it's truly been about quality over quantity :;
I haven't posted my consumption in awhile, but here's what I've had in the past few weeks:
NV Charles Ellner Champagne Brut Rose
2009 Rivers Marie Pinot Noir Silver Eagle Vineyard
2008 Elk Cove Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard
2009 Barnard Griffin Merlot Reserve
2010 Booker Vertigo 22 Months
2011 Chateau Fontaine Woodland White
2010 Carlisle Zinfandel Martinelli Road Vineyard
2011 Chakana Malbec Estate Selection
