    did you read the first review there? It's absolutely ridiculous and is better suited for a MySpace community. Phony shit like this annoys me.

    My nymphs would not only be teasing, they'd be bisexual. Just saying.

    I remember last year some folks here got me to try Castle Rock. I could have sworn it was their PN that I tried and I was deepy disappointed. Well, I noticed on the WS sight today, this:

    Got an 87.

    Got so used to the white Burgs and the cheap Chablis that I forgot all about this crap, or at least put it out of my mind. Damn.

    and now I have to cross off gummy bears from my "stocking stuffers for Manton" list. Damn it.

    Actually, I love gummy bears. Haribo, please. Get them every year at the Boardwalk.

    I don't want my wine to taste like them, though.

    noted. It'll be gummy bears and a St. Aubin. But not a gummy bear St Aubin.

    Care to mention the culprit wine?

    perhaps their "MoJo Red" with its deep Bordeaux color and rich aromas would have been better.

    Thankfully, the 'rents bought a case of Monte Antico on my rec, so we are covered for cheap reds.

    do you still have that left in NY?

    I only had a 2 or 3 bottles, but it was quite good and excellent for the price. The Renati Ratti Barbera was killer, easily the best under $10 bottle I've ever had (usually it's like $22, but yay for Z's crazy sales). I should have bought much more of the Ratti.
