William P, what were those two Loxton syrahs you liked?

I'm a little confused from the site whether it was the 2012s or the 2013s you liked.

Re: BWE SF '17 Event & Payment Info

Assuming hm$ +2 are on board, this sounds like 27 on Friday night and 29 on Saturday night?

Has anyone heard from Rob and Sue?

Any others planning on attending?

I'm assuming that Maureen, Chris/Werner are not joining us?

I'm just trying to get some numbers down.

Re: Who is gonna be in SF on Thursday night?

Ok great that is 5. I have no idea where we are going but perhaps we should limit it to the first 8-12 who sign up, then see who else signs up and divide in half if necessary and do a second Champagne-Bordeaux-Sauternes dinner if we have too many.

Who is gonna be in SF on Thursday night?

Stefan and I are trying to set up a Champagne-Bordeaux-Sauternes dinner for Thursday night. I'm conceptualizing about 12-16 people. We can always set up a second dinner as well and break it up. I have no idea how many people are gonna be in town on Thursday night. And I have absolutely no venue sele...

Re: The 2002 Malescot St. Expery has been uncorked....

This is a stunning Margaux that matches modern with traditional. It really also comes together in 2002, that epic vintage on the left bank. It is still youthful, although a little more evolved, not surprisingly, than the 2004. I think this wine exceeds the modern-styled 2004 in quality. This wine is...

Re: The 2010 Les Grands Chenes has been uncorked.

This is not a very impressive wine. It probably gets into the high 80s because of the vintage.
It is too sweet and unbalanced.
87+ points.

Re: The 2010 Les Grands Chenes has been uncorked.

Good memory, Danny, but you are only half correct.
The first bottle we ordered was 2010 La Tour Carnet.
We liked it. I tried to order a second bottle of the La Tour Carnet but that was their last bottle.
We then went with the 2010 Les Grands Chenes as the second bottle.

I've liked this wine the several times I've had it. We first drank it at that seafood restaurant in downtown Bordeaux during BWE '15. It is from the greatest Bordeaux vintage ever produced.

Has anyone given an idea how quickly this will move to the SCOTUS?
The beauty of course is that a 4-4 tie there would affirm the lower court.
