I would agree it's probably quite young, but 95 HB is da bomb. As is HB in general.

To my tastes the 95 HB is beginning to enter its drinking window, but it clearly has a long way to go. I had the 96 Cos a few months ago, and I thought it was open for business. Haven't had the 95 Cos in a while, so I can't remember where it is relative to the 96. The Montebello was a solid but not great bottle. The Guado al Tasso was gross, as was the Jones, yet again affirming that modern Napa cab is not to my taste. Not pictured, but a really nice surprise was a bottle of 89 Vieux Telegraphe, which was a great bottle of that wine.

I endorse this post.

An 89 Vieux? worship.gif I have a few from early this century sleeping for the long haul.

Had an 05 Larkmead Solera Reserve. I have two more and will let them sleep a few more years. This was drinking nicely though. Not the cult cab profile but not the heavy graphite from Bordeaux either.

2009 Domaine Cherrier Pere et Fils Sancerre paired with a nice salad and grilled tequila shrimp. The wine was crisp with lemon/citrus. Great match.

I have a concierge company and my clients tend to buy wine a lot. Anybody know wine vendors here that would like to jump into an affiliate relationship with me?

I'm having company over for some sushi this weekend. A good white wine with that, blacktower maybe?

I'm a fan of Freiherr Langwerth von Simmern. Family owned and operated since the 1400s. They've had time to figure out how to make wine.

I bought about six cases of wine this weekend, nothing fancy though. Majority $10 or less, some a bit higher and only a few $20 or more.
