Re: 2005 Haut Bergey: A nice $20-something Bordeaux….

I think the 2012 is every bit as good and it goes for $23.

2005 Haut Bergey: A nice $20-something Bordeaux….

This is not a profound wine but it is lovely. It is very distinctively Pessac. It will never be La Mission, but these wines are going for $20-35 and they are well-crafted, "pure", smoky, with black cherries, under control alcohol levels, 10-20 year age-worthiness. They are a slight notch b...

Re: President Trump

I think Hillary should drop out of the race. I don't think she can beat The Donald: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html In fact, if it weren't for her hack friends like Debbie Wasserman (whose days are numbered, by the way), I don't t...

Re: 2005 Barde-Haut has been uncorked and other ramblings….

You know, I can contemplate whether or not this will improve with more age, blah, blah, blah. I'm very happy to drink Barde Haut very young, like the 2012, or with a little age to it, like this 2005. They are both very lovely. The 2005 is developing a little more complexity now with two hours of oxy...

Re: 2005 Barde-Haut has been uncorked and other ramblings….

I mean, at $26, the 2012 Barde Haut almost becomes a house wine for me. I have about 15 bottles in my cellar and I'm going to buy at least another case, maybe two, when MacArthur's re-stocks it in the next month or so.

Re: President Trump

Donald Trump says Bill Clinton "raped" a woman. What do you think, liberal Hillary apologists. Is that impossible? Is that mere politics? Will that have no impact on the race?

If this costs Hillary votes, is it because Bernie is still in the race?
