Only 16 bottles for me, should I feel good about that? Lol, I'm over 1,000 bottles now and I barely drink 2 per week. At that rate, it's 10 years worth of wine!

Just had my next to last bottle of Ty's 2005 Field Blend Red. Dang, but its still drinking well.

For those who think it might be past its prime - it was cellared well, so that helped with the preservation.

Massive amount of mountain Cabernet fruit great acid and tannic grip, a little heat peaking through. Drinking pretty well, will hold the rest for a long time.

The Cab is excellent as well. I have the 2006 Syrah around here somewhere, too. I need to dig that one out some night.

His land all over the map. I had one recently I really enjoyed though: Lot 385 Napa CS (Stag's Leap).

Retail of $28 has kept me from buying more, but I'll get some if I see a deal.

I got a case of the CH Lot 400 CS, and it's interesting. At pop & pour it tastes of vanilla pound cake, kind of like you get with those expensive guys.

Opened a 2003 Wellington Mohrhardt Ridge Cabernet. Letting decant for about 45 minutes before we eat. I think I opened a 2005 the last time when I was looking for the 2003.

It was $13. Bought it almost a year ago. In general and in my opinion...Any Grand Reserve from Trader Joe's should be purchased without delay. It'll be about that price, will be an awesome QPR, and will sell out fast...

Mostly, France and Italy. I like being able to get aged wines from him, and will pretty much jump on any of the aged Rieslings.

Speaking of aged Rieslings, drinking a 1991 Weingut Max Ferd. Richter Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett. Woodland Hills wine has it for just under $20 and it's pretty damn good.

That is the exact kind of wine I don't want to be easily available to me. A '91 Riesling for $20 . . . Are you going back?
