Re: President Trump

Scott, i am in complete agreement with your view of the upcoming campaign.

Jacques, that's some funny/scary $hit! I was about to write that Hillary is the least scary of the bunch until I read that.

Re: Is Jeff Leve the New "Right Bank Robert Parker"?

I agree Scott. Jeff is enthusiastic. And he's consistent and reliable. He's not a Parker clone but his palate aligns a lot more closely to Parker than anyone else I know. If your palate preferences trend to those of the Orlando Bobbies or if you lean AFWE, your favorites and Jeff's will be largely d...

Re: President Trump

Right now it looks like Clinton is limping towards the finish line but still overwhelmingly likely to be the nominee. The lack of momentum would be another hurdle, on top of all the stuff that Trump will be able to throw at her in the general. She needs a convincing win in California, if only for th...

I bought 6 of the 2012 Pape and 4 of the 2010 Baron. It had nothing to do with RP scores, and everything to do with the BWE (Buy Wine Enabling) Brethren.

Re: Is Jeff Leve the New "Right Bank Robert Parker"?

I didn't renew my eRP subscription last year as I was no longer paying any attention to Parker, and the bulletin board was withering on the vine. Plus I'm no longer buying young Bordeaux, and I can get a good fix on Bordeaux from reading Jeff Leve's and Alex's comments.

Re: Bberg on Bordeaux's Women

I found it interesting that Stephanie Bouard Rival said she went to finance school and worked in the banking industry to prove she could do something else. I suspect mom and dad pointed her in that direction specifically to prepare her for a career running the family business.

Great report, Alex. You made it quite clear what you liked/didn't like about each wine and where you were excited vs. concerned, and all without points!

Re: Chateau Rouget Pomerol

My first exposure to Rouget was the 1982. It was one of my first case purchases. I've bought it on and off over the years. I have some of the 2009 in the cellar now. Always thought of it as a good QPR in good years, not worth it in not so good years. It has little or no cachet. It flies below the ra...

I always attribute that dusty mouthfeel that conjures a sense of fine solids to tannins. Which fits pretty well with that wine in that vintage.

I never would have believed Trump would get this far. Shows how much I know. I do think the Republicans will prevent him from gaining the nomination and extending his hijacking of the party. But I'm far from certain.
