You're welcome. Keep an eye out for Warre's 2008 LBV. Seems to be a current vintage at stores and a crazy value around $24.

Already has several years in the bottle. Seen it a few stores, so I assume that is what is being distributed. I picked up 6 bottles of it from Total Wine.

Just FYI, he asked that question over 13 years ago. I've heard of taking time to give a thoughtful response, but wow!

I drank a 2005 bottle last week of December. That was boarder line too young and took 4 hours to open up. I can’t imagine how tight the 2016 was. Still incredible wine. I hope you enjoyed!

Just a heads up, tomorrow is Berserker day on http://www.wineberserker.com. One-day sale each year. Last year picked up some Ridge, DiCo, and some other juice. If you like wine, you’ll be able to find something.

I have never ordered from them. Doesn't look like a traditional store. How does it work?

Itís a forum. Owner puts together all the deals and there will be threads posted to buy directly from producers with discount codes. Theyíve been doing it for 13 years now. Also some auctions happening as well. Definitely worth a look

Haven't had a chance to try this. Now with upcoming gap in availability figure maybe I'll just wait..


Just got shipments from Pride, Abreu, Seven Apart, Miner, Peju...

Clos Cibonne rose... super good and intriguing because it's fairly different from most roses.

Took WSET L3 exam earlier this week - now just have to wait forever for the result, but pretty sure I did well.
