Not that the need to be stood up but I did find them and put them in the front of the cooler for Thursday.

Smart asses...... Razz

And..... yes......... Smile

But I like blueberries (toasted coconut, a little less so)
A good friend is moving away from Vancouver, so we're heading out to our favorite local bistro for a farewell-ish dinner tonight. I'm taking Krug Grand Cuvée and 1998 Haut Brion. He tells me he's bringing a First Growth either '82 or '86, and an Auslese Riesling.

He has never disappointed. I'm pretty excited to see what he'll pull; his Riesling selection is quite special. Smile

Super jealous, please post notes.

Last year I had a '73 Ridge Geyserville Zin ( my birth year) that was amazing, hope you have similar success.
Thanks guys. I don't have much experience with aged wines like this, but it didn't have a lot of fruit left, tannins were fully integrated and there was a candy-like feel on the palate. I couldn't put my finger on exactly what type of candy, other than it was sticky sweet for a few seconds, which was replaced by an earthy/mossy finish.

I was happy to have been able to secure a birth year wine (especially a Monte Bello), so it was more an experience for my wife and me.

This post confuses me in so many ways. Confused Big Grin
Big Grin

So here's my confusion:

Why are you and vinoevelo both going to be in Clarksburg this weekend?

Do you want me to drive up to Clarksburg and join you?

It will be challenging to get your impressions this weekend on wine that we drank LAST weekend (which I think you know, because you commented on my Facebook post).
Oops. I thought you had more of the '87 Dunn.
Vinoevolo will be in the area and I snagged him some Chateau Musar from our local KGBO.
Pretty simple.
But anytime you and P want to visit, you are more than welcome.

Cool

And yes, I do have one more '87 Dunn HM. I'd love to put your name (and your P's name) on it for future enjoyment together!

My TNs are pretty one dimensional and we are on the road to TO tomorrow for our son's birthday but I will see what I can do!
2002 Piper-Heidsieck Rare - the prettiest bottle I've seen. Based on that alone it should have been WS WOTY!
