LOL! I know I really enjoyed having them around for a few days. But they came from IKEA so not too hard or expensive to pick up. I still want to check out what deal I can get through my friend at Crate & Barrel...a 40% employee discount could be quite nice...and might save me enough money to buy a ticket to NYC to crash an upcoming housewarming

If you're looking to be specific, I'd like to show you something. Here's my Excel for Merry Edwards PN, 2006:

750ml $61.26 3 2006 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Olivet Lane (USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley) 2008-2013 CT90.1
750ml $43.14 5 2006 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley (USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley) 2009-2012 CT90.2
750ml $54.92 3 2006 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Coopersmith (USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley) 2010-2013 IWC88, CT90.9
1.5L $108.05 2 2006 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Meredith Estate Russian River Valley (USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley) 2010-2013 CT89.5
750ml $54.02 3
750ml $57.62 2 2006 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Klopp Ranch (USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley) 2009-2012 IWC89, CT90.8
750ml $54.67 4 2006 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Flax Vineyard

That's just a cut and paste out of my Cellar Tracker entries. The point is, giving a maker and a vintage isn't specific enough, as I have six different bottlings of ME 2006 Pinots.

Thanks. I'm familiar with her offerings. FYI, I bolded the one I had in SFO. It was splendid.

I've heard the Portugal, esp. Douro, is producing some fantastic wines. I'd like to taste some of the quality Portuguese wines. I'll look for your entry.

My wife and I avoided using our better stems for daily use. We found that Target sells a decent glass by Reidel. Nice wine glasses and inexpensive enough that you don't mind putting them in the dishwasher.

The you highlighted is fantastic!!! Just a warm, chewy and dark fruity mouthful of deep violet joy!

The Dos Grilos is also nice, especially for the PN lover.

Psychological? Like Cables!!! LOL

nvm.
post #89 of 18230
party at gomestar's!! If only that damn kitchen table I ordered would arrive


for my top-10 list - to be frank, I'm not a huge fan of sorted lists. Its for the same reason I hate it when people say "X wine should be served with X food".

However, some wines I've had in the past few months that I have really enjoyed: 2000 Chateau Pontet Canet, 1998 Pio Cesare Barolo, 2004 Oreno super tuscan, and a 1994 Joseph Phelps Insignia 3L. Plus countless bottles from Umbria, Sicily, Piedmont, Tuscany, etc...
