Yeah boy, if I win my bid this week definitely will have one earmarked for Tahoe again. Is it August yet Smile

Drinking the Mondavi tomorrow night, I'll let you know how it shows.

Resisting the urge to snipe your bid... Razz

If Tahoe is a go, I'll bring one of my magnums.
1981 Penfolds Grange Hermitage

1986 Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz

1989 Beaucastel

1993 Chateau Latour

For Saturday diner party. Trying to figure out the best method of service, was thinking to decant them just before diving into them and take it from there.

I had a bottle a year ago and it had about another 10 years of life left ahead of it but was drinking great.

I have high hopes for it.
I hope it shows well sunny. I definitely agree it was many years of enjoyment ahead of it but should still be great if it isn't flawed.

It was fantastic, especially after a few hours in the decanter and an hour in the glass. I agree: it has a long life ahead of it. It still drinks young right now.

Hope and trust the Faiveley won't need a back-up. Looking forward to hearing how that shows; expectations of YUM.

Your greetings were passed on, and reciprocated.

I'll post some notes about the wines we shared in the current 'What Are You Drinking' thread. It was a night with some remarkable wines, and another reminder of how extremely fortunate we all are to be able to live the way we do.

It's Feb. 8, and a sunny, balmy 54˚F day here in Vancouver. Crocuses, snowdrops, pussywillows, tulips are starting to blossom all over the place. I'm pretty sure I've already won the frickin' lottery. Smile

Well FWIW, it was 7 degrees (celcius) and lovely when we were in Toronto at the end of last week. A little breezy especially on Yonge Street but still nice enough to walk around town.
It hit 16°C – that's 62°F – here in Toronto about a week ago. But by this weekend I just heard that it will drop to -15°C. Ouch. Winter is about two months late, but it will finally arrive.

You know, it takes a lot of chutzpah to tell people who are native to Florida just how warm it is in Vancouver. Big Grin

I don't think I could ever see myself doing that.

Bman, was your dialing finger broken? Or was there another reason you did not let us know you were in town? bunny
