Agreed, on both varietals.

This is incredible. Every other wine I've had has been liquid viagra for wiminz. This one is for the dudes.

I am just getting back now. Got out of work early and took the GF over to Bergdorf Goodman. She tried on a Jil Sander dress that was too beautiful, so I got it for her. Then we celebrated with a sushi dinner and now we're going to kick back with some Falanghina and a movie.



Great Brunello on Cindy wines tonight.

That sounds like a freakin awesome night.

I will still buy if there is a great deal or maybe a one-off purchase, but no more buying bottles just b/c it's fun. I need you to keep me strong.

yes, it is. Great sushi too. We're just relaxing around the apartment for now (hence me on SF). I might head out and get some sweets.

no worries on the Cindy wine, I'm not biting on anything until the end of the month where I hope to venture out to WL in person. When work starts to cool down, I'll post an occasional wine education summary. Just something that talks about a region, the varietals, characteristics, etc. Writing it helps me retain knowledge and I'm sure it'll help others.

I can't bite on Cindy wines or WTSO as there is just no room at the inn Wife's case (yes, 12 more bottles) of 07 The Chronique just came in. Have 4 WTSO wines coming in. Have a case of Stefania from futures, and pre-bought DuMol.

We'll just keep drinking 2-3 bottles per weekend night and hope there's room.

there's 2 or 3 wines from DuMol at my store, neat!





This is what we're drinking tonight. Great stuff: good viscosity, clear acid throughout, balance, and a surprisingly intense green apple finish. It's the stuff I love for $18

I should be able to make a boastful post of voxian proportions in this thread tomorrow. Assuming I remember to take pics.

Tonight I have been cleaning the kitchen, which is a gigantic pain in the ass.

Last night I had a Sassicaia for the first time .Dear God! Halle-fucking-lujah!
Worth every centesime... but I wasn't paying.

Sassicaia is an awesome, awesome wine. What year did you have?

Thank God. That three week hiatus was tougher than I thought. Really missed the wine 'occasions'. Made a special date last night in celebration of two good physical appts. and the long break. Just a local restaurant, but a very nice one.

We had a nice bottle of JLohr Paso Robles Cabernet at the bar and then sipped a wonderful Miner Family Vineyards Oakville Cab. A fabulous night.
