Thoughts? I enjoy the Carters much more than most Napa Cabs- more refined, more balanced. But I like the winemaker Mike Smith's work with his own label- Myriad- even more.

Thoughts...posted under wrong title. Red Face Big Grin

As you may know, the overall style shift in Napa Cabernet left my palate 10+- years ago. This said, I have tasted a few wines recently offering a more balanced profile, and these two would fall under that category I'm thinking.

Both were showing that wonderful Napa fruit, but also offering more than just fruit, and not too flabby or hot.

I have not tried Myriad wines that I can recall.

Will have to share a bottle of Myriad with you... If more Napa cab was made like it, I think your palette would fall in love with Napa all over again. Smile Glad you enjoyed the Carters!

Gig, this is on sale locally with a pretty good percent discount. How would you rank this against other Anejos? Thanks in advance.

bill - I'm not gig, but I've always regarded DJ Anejo as one of the finest and well worth the coin. If you can pick it up on a discount, I'd BUY.

A few years back I spent ALOT of time working in Mexico and this was the Tequila the locals gave the nod of approval if given a choice.
Agree on the Don Julio. A very good QPR Anejo. Their Blanco is my go-to for Margaritas as it is also a very good QPR in my area.

Bill, I agree with the others. This is what I have been pouring of late. Is it on sale at Binny's? I'm due for another bottle.
Couple of fingers of Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Pretty darn good, but just shy of being too "carmely."

I agree completely with KSC02; an excellent añejo indeed.

Thanks all for the replies. thelostverse, I'm pretty sure I saw it a few days ago at Binny's for $39.99, marked down $10 from the regular price. The web site doesn't show the sale price. I'll check again and pick up a bottle if that's the case.

Luxury Baccarat cristal caraffe. Did you get the bottle? I'd refill with some el-cheapo v.s. and laugh at the many oh's and ah's given to that special cognac Wink

Here's one bottle i'd like to have in my collection:

Please send to me if you find one Smile
Moselle, very funny.

I have never kept any of the bottles over the years. Always seems someone truly wants it a great deal, and not really our style.

I will be on the lookout for your special bottle. Wink

Curious about your thoughts on Pappy 20.


I love the stuff when I can get it. Recently picked up 2 bottles for $106 which is a great price for me.

Smooth without becoming overly sweet, just damn easy to drink.

Some unknown Single Malt in a 20cl bottle. My guess is: Cragganmore 10 cask strength.
(I tend to fill small remainders of big Single Malt bottles into smaller bottles, because they tend to evaporate and lose aroma very quickly when they reach 25% fill. Somehow i did not write down the name on this one. )
