Never really liked Whiskey. First thing I ever drank, was a half bottle of Johnny Walker and a half bottle of Bacardi when I was 13 or 14...Never cared for either Whiskey or Rum ever since...

The only time I have it, is when I visit my parrents, who always insists on serving Irich Coffee after diner...

Case of 2004 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cab
3 bottles of 2003 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cab
1 bottle each of Newton Unfiltered Merlot, Chardonnay and Cab.
1 bottle of Newton Red Label Claret

And being delivered today:
3 bottles of 2004 Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet

Thx Pio. I'm certainly not a wine expert.

I've recently been on a Pinot search. I like a bit lighter style. We recently found the entry level Cambria (Julia's Vineyard, I think...about $20 a bottle) and enjoyed them. Decided to try a few of their other Pinot offerings as well.

Sea Wynde Rum
and
Pierre Ferand sampler set
- 200 ml bottles of each of their four offerings: Amber, Cigar Reserve, Reserve, and Selection Angles

The cognac was an unbelievable value. All four bottles for $50. Based on the the cost of the 750 ml bottle the Selection Angles was worth like $35 on its own.

Which is precisely why you shouldn't do that...

What do you mean by lighter? Less fruit? Less "funk" (earth, mushroom, etc. as the wine people call it ). I might have a suggestion or two.

Wish to thank for this, found the 1991 edition localy. Relay like It. Now of hunting for some more Springbank, as my last is almost gone. Anyone have experience with this:
