Re: TN 2002 Ch. Gloria, St. Julien

I checked on my cellar tracker note: 5/14/2016 - I LIKE THIS WINE: (Edit) 93 Points I don't even want to look at cellar tracker to see what the average score is for this wine. I'm sure it is 87.2 or some such nonsense. Look, I'm Jim How, I know I have a palate that doesn't overlap with everyone's. B...

Re: RSVP--"Regrets only"

In the summer of 1998 I was at the New Hampshire liquor store in Hampton on the northbound side of the turnpike on I-95. Somehow I found out that the Nashua store had a case of 1995 Petrus at $275 per bottle. I raced across NH to Nashua. When I got there, there was a pristine OWC case of 1995 Petrus...

Re: Experiences with Smith Hauth-Lafitte

The Cathiards were such sweethearts, what a thrill that was to meet them.
I have loved the 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, and the ones we drank at the estate.
The one that seemed too crazy to me was the 2005.

Yes we don't want to be switching hotels. I think we'll do San Francisco. There are more options there. That still leaves the option of a side trip to Sonoma or Napa if anyone is interested. I don't know how enticing those areas are at that time of year, I'm guessing it's still going to be fairly ch...

Thanksgiving in Maine Day ONE: 2014 St. Innocent Momtazi

This is a splendid wine, so approachable at such a young age. I'm enjoying this every bit as much as the 2012. Great balance, color, vibrancy, freshness, "purity." Excellent. Received my shipment of 6 bottles yesterday, will order 12 more bottles at $36. Great stuff. 93 points.

Re: President Trump

Question: Can you say beyond a reasonable doubt that the votes in MI, WI, and PA were not hacked by the Russians? If I were arguing this in a criminal trial, I believe I could raise a doubt. There are legitimate experts who are screaming that this election was hacked. Is that so impossible? I say no.

A major league enablement today by jckba….

So Zachy's is having a "sale." Which, of course, usually means that their wines are only moderately over-priced. Except once in a while, you find a deal. I know it's hard to say $238 for a bottle of wine is a "deal" but as many of you know, when it comes to Dal Forno Romano Amaro...
