    $25. Their regular price was about $33 I think.

    if the place by me had it for $25, I'd load up on a few bottles for sure.

    I'd load up on quite a few bottles and all. Sauternes FTW!

    Just got this bottle from a friend in trade for a Juan Benegas 2006 Malbec.

    Flavium Crianza 2005 from the Bierzo DO

    It's 100% Mencia and recieved a 90 from Robert Parker...not bad for a $10 bottle.

    This will be my first tasting of this one so I'll update later.

    This seemed like the best place to post this link. VINTAGE DECLARED FOR 2007!!!

    http://www.winespectator.com/Wine/Fe...7,5033,00.html



    I haven't ventured into Ports yet but I've had two reds fromthe Douro region that were just wonderful. Dos Grilos and the Quinta Do Coa.

    Thanks for the article...we should start a wine info/appreciation thread.

    Sounds interesting. I love me some port, but have just been getting into the vintages fairly recently.

    If I wanted to buy a few bottles of the 2007 to lay down how would I go about finding out which ones to buy and what's the best route to get the best deal (online sites, local stores, mailing lists, etc.).

    Well, when a vintage is declared, there's no such thing as a "bad" port [​IMG]

    I'd say, just go with the tasting notes in WS.

    Here's the sad part though. You should not lay down any 2007s, unless you're willing to perhaps drink them too young. I'm a few years younger than you, and I have to face the fact I'll be about 70 when these are really ripe. Growing old sucks [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'm a real crowd pleaser today. [​IMG]

    I had been reading this weekend that it looked like 2007 was going to have at least some houses declare, and I got to thinking about the whole age vs. port thing. Not very cheery.

    I rarely drink port, though a port is on one of my all time favorite lists: the 1975 Quinta do Nuval

    I had the 2003 Croft Vintage a few months ago (yes, young to drink), but damn was it good. Got it for $50.

    Believe me, I know (did I not say I know it was young to drink?).
