You'd fall off your chair if you knew what I got them for

Thanks, I do (and we all) have alot to be thankful for. The grass is not often greener. Having family, friends, health, and smile can go long way. Some Chambertin does hurt either, lol...

I love wine, and I am very partial to California wine, and specifically Paso Robles or Napa Valley. I am, however, no connoisseur by any means. I took some photos of my favorite California wines, and all are vere reasonably priced. Blackstone is carried in most grocery store around here, and can be had at about $8-$15 per bottle.

Blackstone Winery - Napa Valley - One of my all time favorite winerys


Another Blackstone - Sonoma County


J. Lohr - Paso Robles


Wild Horse - Paso Robles


Eagle Castle - Paso Robles


Matchbook - Dunnigan Hills


Firestone - Paso Robles


Crosspoint - Monterry County


Bargetto - Santa Cruz

Drinking an 05 DaMa Cab from Columbia Valley tonight matched with a ribeye and then a dip5. Delicious as expected.

Thumbs up Re: The Wine Thread

We had a birthday party at my place last night and had the following:

1975 Taylor Vintage Port
1996 Clos de Brusquieres CdP
1987 Ch. Pichon Longueville
1985 Ramos Pinto Vintage Port



Great night and inbetween the wine to port, we to a latino restaurant and ate like chazers. No cigars, but am getting ready to light up a Monarch right now.

I've seen you post those 'chopped top' port bottles before (can't remember the lingo), why do that for the bottle on the left, and not the one on the right?
