I'm sure that's not so. One needn't spend a lot to drink well, just wisely.

How is its upcoming 50th birthday not a special event? Especially among us who share that birthday?

Would it pair well with a '64 Dom? ... it would indeed!


If you are going to drink '64 Bordeaux, let it be Pomerol. I hope the bottle shows very well.

Agreed, but sometimes things like this happen! Caution: this is a bad story that happened to guy who is like many of us!

Board-O,

Oh, I'm not saying I drink complete plonk or anything. And, I have things in my cellar that most on the board would enjoy drinking. Just nothing too expensive that I wouldn't drink, and my best is well below what others drink on a great wine night.

amongst a few board member i'm sure alot of our bests are well below what they drink on a great wine night =)
imo, there's nothing that can be too expensive too drink. for me, it's more of who i'm sharing the bottle with and what the occasion is.

there's nothing worse than sharing a bottle of wine with someone you find revolting but appreciates wine. it would spoil the experience for me regardless of how much/little the wine cost.

TallGirl,

I must inquire, just how tall? Big Grin

Full disclosure, I'm a skosh under 6'4".

Steve, I really hope you do not sell.

You do not need the money, and this could truly be so so special. The '45 I had was such a joy and still a bottle I think about.

I second that remark (not selling).

It's easy for us to lose sight of why we began cellaring in the beginning. For me it was to age wines in a controlled environment that I knew were cared for properly. But also to be able to enjoy many wines that become out of realistic reach when ready to drink. To purchase at release prices allowed it to be affordable.

Surely, it can become a matter of economics for some as life changes, and at times changes can bring financial pressures with it. But if one does not really have a 'need' to liquidate than why do it, really? I'm not referring to palate changes or preferences here either.

hehe .. i hate coming up with monikers but i was thinking of a tall boy beer. but if i called myself a tall boy, you'd think i was a dude. so i changed it to a tall girl.

but i'm so not tall - quite the opposite.

But it could be corked. Eek I'm not actively looking to sell it, but $1500 is a lot for a bottle of fermented grape juice.

...and it is nothing in the grand scheme of things for a wine that could make your top 5, ever.

Look, you and I spoke candidly recently while sharing 3 bottles of vino. We are now both north of 50, and we will both be jumping off of this merry-go-round very soon, and neither of us are fretting about much of anything anymore in life. Open this damn wine with family and friends and seize the moment.

I will make you a deal, Steve. If you truly want to sell it, I will buy it from you next week, and drink it with you in 2020.

Your call. Wink

That is one option ...
Another is to sell you really cheap wine for a lot of money Smile

Very generous offer W+A, but I wouldn't sell it to a friend for $1500 and I wouldn't sell it for a more reasonable price.

In my hypothetical situation I have an opportunity to sell it to someone I don't know for that price. Unlikely.

Touche! And then it could be too expensive to open and too cheap to open.

Meaning drink the wine...do not sell/trade?


No, I actually wasn't really referring to wine.
Just the whole, seize the moment talk. It's easy to talk the talk and/or exercise the talk most of the time but to actually "be" that person requires a lot of just letting go.

My twin brother DoktaP beat me to the answer. Wink

I think he meant letting go at like the taco stand in mexico and then the after effects in the hotel room the night of.

there's alot of letting go going on both ways

Got that trophy bottle in the cellar that you refuse to open no matter who's over, so you can show it off? (Perhaps a 1787 Lafite?)


Yes, 2004 Poker Face. I'd rather trade it for a couple of Saxum's and/or Alban's. Can't justify drinking a $700 bottle of wine.
