I'd like to know how the Sass shows - just bought my first ever bottles - 2011 - which I know won't peak for years, but it would be good to get an idea how long I'll have to wait.


bman, we can fix that Cool. Let me know when you are back home.

Thanks, Rick! But my trips home will be relatively short for the foreseeable future. Maybe in the Fall?

Bman, the bottle showed very well, though understandably younger than a normal .750ml as this was from magnum. It was the perfect occasion (Dj's b-day) and a perfect format with 11 wine drinkers at the table.

I've had the pleasure of drinking several '98 Sassicaia. The wine shows well now and will for several more years. One of the great vintages for this wine, IMO.

Will let you know. I've got a couple more 07s. I've had a bunch of continuum at release and they drink great young. This will be the oldest one I've had. It will be consumed in the parking lot of the LA Forum before the U2 concert tomorrow night but such is lifeSmile

Personally, I'm looking forward to hearing about the Spottswoode!

You are making this poor Canadian very envious as there is no way we would ever get away with drinking wine in a parking lot before a show. Or at least, I would not risk someone confiscating such a pricey bottle, which is well above my usual price point (but I got a good deal on that one bottle! bluesbros )

And BTW, we are seeing U2 in a few weeks in Montreal, but the show is right next door to our hotel so being well-lubricated with fine wine will not be a problem!

I'd be interested in hearing how the Continuum shows since I have a bottle of the 2009 and thought it would need to rest for a few years yet.


Well I ended up grabbing an 08 Continuum. We gave it a 90 minute decant and it was fabulous. Sadly the 99 Spottswoode was flabby and no very good. Perhaps it was an off bottle but surveying the damage this morning there was still half a bottle left while the other 7 bottles (4 bubbly and 2 KB Pinots) were dead soldiers.
