Point taken. I respectfully withdraw the "intentional".

So what champs did you celebrate with?
post #18486 of 18493
Alas, haven't done any major celebrations. For a variety of stupid reasons (including: the idea of buying something fancy to celebrate when you could actually just be fired is rather unpleasant). Have had some janky non-vintage stuff, but am still waiting to look around for the good stuff. Maybe over spring break in New York or something.

Had these two half bottles tonight. 

 

2007 Quintessa...last 07 I tried was corked this one was not thankfully. 

 

1998 Domaine Du Vieux Télégraphe....so much sediment for such a tiny bottle; the cheese cloth worked...mostly.

Had this with dinner tonight: 

 

Tannins are still intact but no more fruit to give...definitely going down from here.  Very good but not as nice as the '70 Latour I have had previously.

NEW WINE APP!!!

Gents, just released a new wine app with some friends called Pickabottle. It essentially shows users where to go to drink great wines that suit their palates as well as their wallets. As of now it has a searchable database of wine lists in NYC with more cities coming soon. However, it also has write-ups of where to go while traveling in other cities and wine regions. Download it, play around with and tell all your friends! Think you'll get a kick out of it.

You can download it here at the App store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pickabottle/id867276229?mt=8

Thanks!

Drinking this tonight 95 Hayne Petite Syrah 

 

 

Very rich and thick.

post #18492 of 18493


This is brilliant. Rich but not extracted. Really well balanced. Just enough oak and structure. Dense red fruit. Got to try the latest release as well and it had this odd funk that's not in this one.

Awesome. Love Turley, love Petite. I have a few bottles of 2006 Foley Muscleman petite - great stuff, don't think they're going to make it to their twenties.
