    You need to hold that for a long time.

    Well I drank that one in particular, but I have 2 more 2012 :) . I also have two 2009 and one 2010.

    The 2012 was really nice as young as it is. I just started getting really into wine not too long ago, so I'm used to drinking young wine. 2010 Bordeaux is the oldest so far. Haha

    I'm into experiencing a lot of wines right now so I can learn what to hold onto and also so I can learn the differences of young vs old eventually.

    Something like that needs at least 10 years (probably more if you want true tertiary characteristics). But obviously you want to see what types of wines you like before buying a bunch- don't want to stock up for ten years only to realize you don't like bordeaux!

    Some tasty bottles from a long Fourth of July weekend. Not included in the photo so were several bubbley bottles recommended in that New York Times article posted a few pages ago.

    Really looking to taste more and more Nebbiolo. Would love suggestions!

    Some good entry level Nebbiolos that are easy to find are Produttori del Barbaresco, Pio Cesare, and GD Vajra.

    Vietti Perbacco is a good baby Barolo at $22 or so (comprised of the grapes they didn't use/were too young for their single vineyard bottlings)

    Drank the last of my favorite Vouvray yesterday. I'm in mourning.
