That's like telling a five year old not to touch something.

Don't feel bad. I made the same mistake and generated a thread about 20 responses long!

At least it didn't go dinwiddie!

Ok I have decided that this could be our secret hiding place for tasting notes of wine we don't want too many people knowing about. You know, because then the stores run out, or the auction price starts climbing higher and higher. So I will start with a wine I have recently had and I am trying to buy as much as possible!

'94 Dominus. One of the best wines I have had. Fabulous aromas of sweet candied fruit, light cherries. Elegant, balanced, with a wonderful long finish. This wine is so sweet you could hold it in your mouth forever not wanting to swallow. Yet not over the top. I give it between 98-99 pts. A wonderful wine for the money. smile

It used to be beer, the old lady, & TV. Now it's wine, women, & song.
T.T I was trying to stay away from this post so it won't pop up on the top again and get more attention, but I can no longer resist posting my apology since it doesn't look like it is going to end by itself anytime soon... sorry about this. I was trying to post a reply to an existed post, but then started a new topic by mistake. Then I tried to deleted the topic, but then found out only the adminstrators process such power...
I am glad that it at least give a few people a good laugh smile

Happy monday
PE - You said it gal; if there's anyone that can kill a post quicker than I let them cast the first cork. That being said...

I remember when I had a '98 Benziger Reserve Cab Sauvignon in Atlanta, GA, and it was corked. Sent it back for another bottle, it was corked. A third bottle was brought out just to check the entire stash and it too was corked, though not nearly as much as the first two. Anyway, there was this cassis thing going on, and the mushroom (or was it cork), like I said, lots of legs, and cork, and black fruit, and cork.....

kybo - The Great (thread killer). big grin

...hey, chief - you gonna finish that bottle?
Speaking of corks, I was showing our hostess how to s-l-o-w-l-y twist the cork out of a bottle of Champagne on Thanksgiving when it took on a life of its own and blew out like a missile. It was loud. We couldn't find it (didn't really look) until Nick found it in his cranberry relish. Maybe it was the air flight down, but this was true travel shock 'n roll.
Did not improve the cranberry relish.
The Vikings jobbed by the ref's? HA....

Try bleeding silver and black for a while. Nobody else has to play an extra team! (the officials)

I'm going to inflame your ire with this post. Take a deep breath before you read it. wink big grin

The Raiders are normally the toughest, dirtiest playing team in the NFL - especially in the '70's. How many flags per game did they average in those years? Seemed like every time Da Boyz (Cowboys, that is) played them, Staubach ended up hurt because of some illegal shot.

With all due respect Ms. Wine.....

Those flags you point out simply make my point. My Raiders have been persecuted by the ref's for decades.

You may wish to re-write history, but your revisionist views will be thouroghly rejected by those with even a limited knowledge of football.

Hey that was pretty good mock anger and indignation. razz big grin

Better luck next year Lilac.

That was very good mock anger GA! big grin

Saying the Raiders were "persecuted" by the refs is like saying Charles Manson is persecuted by the California penal system. They deserved every bit of it.

I always dreaded the day the Cowboys had to play the Raiders. I always knew it was going to be a tough game and that my dad would burst a blood vessel over the refs not calling all the bad stuff.

I expanded my vocabulary on those days too. Kind of like the blonde kid in "A Christmas Story" (THE word). wink

Gladstone at a social gather said to Disraeli, "I predict, Sir, that you will die either by hanging or of some vile disease". Disraeli replied, "That all depends, sir, upon whether I embrace your principles or your mistress."
Ok folks,

I have been a Raider's fan since, I believe, 1970. When I was just a kid, I saw George Blanda throw three touchdown passes AND kick five field goals in the same game against the Browns. I was hooked ever since. Did not actually know the exact year I saw this game until Madden came out with a book in like 1986, and he descibed this exact game. Finding out how long I had been cheering for them was very cool!

And I still do!

Go Raiders!

I'm saying now, with only limited reservation that this is the most informative thread, EVER AVAILABLE ON THIS WINE SITE. IN HONOR OF THE OCCASION, I would venture a bottle of 94 King Estate Reserve Pinot against any takers with a reasonable back bet, on the Iowa USC game ...Orange Bowl. I must say this is an aged Oregon Pinot with alot of character. Will ship..and expect likewise...Will take on 6 of the best return bets. Seriously now, I'm not kidding.
Since I got my MSEE from UCLA I find it hard to cheer for the University of Spoiled Children. However, when a wager is offered I feel I must take it upon myself to relieve someone of their wine. I will offer up a ''95 Rocca de Montegrossi Chianti Classico Reserva against your Pinot. Offer accepted??

Forgive me for I have Zinned, and will again ...
