Whenever I look at the drinking window on CT, I click "edit" (old CT platform, on the new platform click the actual dates) to see how many users contributed to the average. In this case, 2 users suggested 2015 as the earliest and 1 user suggested that it will cellar until 2030. Not exactly a consensus.

2004 Wellington Victory. Still has to be one of the best wines I have ever had. Still has great fruit, velvety smooth. And I have another bottle. I tried to convince SWMBO that she didn't like it. She had none of that.

Had some Pedroncelli 2008 DCV alto Sangio the other day,
also some DuNah Tre Cuvée Chard.
Printed label said 2007, but it was scratched out and 2008 written in. Interesting enought I just got under the wire on the plus offer.

I am also a fan of that winery. They're one of my Garagiste autobuys, along with the Chavannes Cuvee des Ambassades.

Tonight was a Pinot Noir Rose from Sonoma. Winery escaping me at the moment, but they share production/tasting space with Inspiration.

How was the syrah? I had the malbec and really enjoyed it with the ribeye. Enough tannin and structure to play nice with the fat in the meat. Not deep and brooding though, kind of light on its feet at least as far as malbec goes, or can.

I don't know if the Syrah needed more air or the fact that I had my glass after dessert but it seemed very dark and meaty on the nose but overly tart on the palate. As it opened up i got a lot of black cherry and some floral aspect on the nose that made it more enjoyable. I saved a 375s worth so I'll try it again in a couple days. Glad to hear you liked the Malbec and I look toward to trying it some night.

Based on the Syrah I decided the QPR did not wow me so I passed on yesterday's offer. Of course today's Wellington offer at roughly the same bottle price might be a go since I didn't go in yesterday. WD mentioned we won't see fjellene wines again for awhile so if like the other bottles there is a chance I will get another chance at those.

I hope your take is the correct one; mine was 'a long while', as perhaps not at all.

Will make a mental note of Chavannes. I've been known to autobuy the same offering of the Siffrin. Fontodi and Rinaldi also tend to be automatics.

Tonight is a 2005 Helios Syrah.

Sipping on '12 Revelation Chard from TJ's. Third day and it still sucks. This year's a pass.

I did find what I hope to be a replacement, though, at 2/3 the cost. That's right. $4/btl. Trying one tonight. Will taste, potentially re-up, and report.

It was pulsing toward the end there though, so if it does show it will be gone quickly.

Tonight we had some Hans von Wilhelm Piesporter Riesling of unknown vintage, followed by '13 Glatzer Grüner Veltliner with dinner, then off to a local music club where I drank a few Paulaner Hefeweizens while enjoying music from Wild Moccasins and Eastern Sea, a couple bands out of Texas making their first trip around the country.

Tried the syrah last night. Was just ok. Splash decant just to get off the sediment. Was ok, but I was left wanting a little more. Clean and kind of simple. Picked up some weight after a bit, but I dunno. Maybe just needs a little time.

I still have a full 375 of this for the long weekend ahead so I'll post back here If I think the wine has changed for better or worse.

2010 Feast it Forward Cab, from Underground Cellars. Decanted for about 20 minutes, and really lovely with a grilled ribeye. There are some decent Cabs from that vintage, and this one, with grapes sourced from Paul Maroon's vineyards, is one of them.
