Kyle and Piob are gonna be pissed!
Meh. so that guy didn't like ME SB. Who cares.
What's important is that he had some major love for Dry Creek and RRV in general! BOOYA!
I wish you had more love for the area.
Shit I'll be living there again in 2 years if you ever get off your ass and go tell Kermit that he's going to hire me someday.
You guys are so cute.
Do you have a spot to build out a small cellar? That is one way to do it quickly and avoid wine cooling chrages when they break down every few years. If you are handy, it is pretty easy to do. For cooling, a Kenmore unit from Sears can be "tricked" to get down below 60 degrees witrhout frosting over. There has been a number fo conversations about this on the web. A bunch of guys from Mark Squires old wine forum board used to discuss this quite a bit. R. Parker has taken over the web site and think they charge now. But I bet you could post on Robin Garr's web site and find plenty of people that can point you in right direction.
Cooling unbits are easier to get going but your own cellar is better and cheaper in the long run.
Graileys fine wine and Pogo's in Dallas both had it for 79.99.
Lots of places should have it for 75 around the country. This is a bigger production wine and you should be able to find someone to ship it to you with a price around $75. The retail of 125 what plenty of places charge or would like to charge but this wine is widely discounted.
You probably know this already, but if you do buy a wine fridge, think about humidty controlled. A fridge alone sucks out out humidty. Low humidty dries corks and causes them to shrink...then you get leaks.
One thing you can do is keep an open bottle of water in the wine fridges to up the humidity levels a few percentage points. Won't do too much, but better than doing nothing.
Day 1 of celebration, and also for Gomey:
How was the Morey? Have not had one in awhile. Sometimes their stuff can be a biyt oaky for my taste. Sometimes it is spot on.
great stuff, Manton and KWilk
This was excellent. 90% Merlot. 10% Cab Franc
Morey was, IMO, a bit thin. Not too oaky.
