I really like this wine. As for the 2012 Brunello, did you pick up a couple testers for evaluation?


I haven't tasted any 2012 BdM yet, so yes those bottles of Barbi and Frescobaldi will be my testers. That said, I've always found those 2 to be consistently excellent wines. Even though I bought these I still doubt I will buy many 12's. Certainly not the ones which need age and/or have become pricey (Fuligni, Ciacci, Il Poggione, etc...).

And speaking of consistent, yes the Dido is an excellent wine. The 2015 didn't disappoint.

I went with Ultramarine again. $55/bottle is super reasonable. I'm on the fence about '14 Detert East Block.

I looked at the East Block offer but it was pricey to start with, and then there was shipping to NY at $50 for 3 bottles. It worked out to $192 USD/bottle. Factor in CDN exchange and that was a deal breaker for me.

Always fascinated by the differing palates. If you're referring to the Turley PS, im of the opinion that it's far superior to their Zins. Or had been in my experience. I haven't bought Larry's wines in the last 3-4 vintages.

Never cared for the 96 Mondavi but the 01 Staglin and Forman should be real good!

Should be wonderful. Hope you're a young man! Had two of his wines recently. The 2003 Pommard Grand Epenots was outstanding, the 2002 Richebourg was far more than good, but relatively disappointing.

Had some money left after finding out that you didn't need to buy very much Yellowtail?


We all know it had absolutely nothing to do with me or Yellowtail. I didnt put the poll up nor did I have anything to do with it being put up. It was put up by another forumite to prove a point. That point being the majority of the people on this forum would not share a glass with you under any circumstance even if that was a glass of '59 La Tache.

And for the record I was winning when the thread was taken down anyway

How bout this...You won by one. Feel better???? how about you won by 2??? feel even better???lets make it 5!!!you must be feeling great now. Bottom line put anyone else on a poll with same 2 bottles and you on the Yellowtail. Your not getting a single vote unless you vote for yourself.

Not only are you a points whore you but you are posting in the wrong thread. This is for September 2017.

And somehow, I'm the 'odd one' of the group. Big Grin
