I am new to the message boards so hello everybody. I just started drinking wine about 3-4 years ago thanks to my now fiance. I am only 25 years old. She has gotten me hooked. After a few years of tasting quite a few different wines I have decided to build a collection. I also just recently bought a 52 bottle wine refrigerator. Also be aware I am pretty much a Cab guy.
My question is how is my collection taking shape and when is the right time to open some of these wines? The 2001 Mondavi's were part of a case I have been enjoying over the past year.
Also are there any that could last 20+ years in my collection?
Here is what I have so far:
5 x 2001 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 2000 Robert Mondavi Stag's Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 1997 Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 1999 Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
2 x 2002 Matanza's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 2002 Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 1998 MossWood Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 2002 Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 1998 Joseph Phelps Insignia
1 x 1999 Joseph Phelps Insignia
1 x 2001 Joseph Phelps Insignia
3 x 2002 Joseph Phelps Insignia
1 x 2001 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
1 x 2002 Cakebread Cellars Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon
Any help is appreciated.
