I still have one bottle of that left. I hope it makes me regret trading you the bottle I did.


Had Tapas at a new (to me) restaurant tonight. Fantastic long list of well made authentic tapas. $30 corkage made me rethink the bottle I brought. Would have been better than the glasses purchased there but $30 seriously changes value propositions.

2014 - 20 Btl. Fjellene (10 bot), Urraca Chard (10 bot)
Last purchase: 5/3/14

2013 - 75 btl. 2012 - 98 btl. 2011 - 112 btl. 2010 - 30 btl.

You just had to mention that and make me go look to see If I still had any, and found an opened '97 Ardente in front of it I'd totally forgotten about. "It", both the Ardente and Hahn.
Even Ar doesn't work for two or three months.
Do I need to start drinking that Hahn CF I found behind the Ardente?

A really nice rosé (Pardevalles, 2012, from León) with the midday meal, then the hoped for relaxing evening at home (our host's home, that is) with a wonderful '06 Malbec from La Mancha, aptly named Quixote, and an '07 Guelbenzu red blend (Tempranillo, Syrah, and Merlot). Smooth and tasty, but I liked the Malbec better.

Lagrein was horribly pruny. On to: NV Alvear Montilla-Moriles Fino

Really weird, salty, nutty. Kind of hard to drink but interesting.

Seems legit. I wouldn't have from a M$ box, but from a very locked down linux box I was less concerned. It didn't trigger any alarms, and I refused all cookies, only one attempt.
Worth a look, things must be way different in the UK than here.

But it was written by a Romanian, clearly not someone whose first language is English, even the version they use in Edinburgh. Beyond that, it was a poorly constructed survey, with missing question numbers, one choice only questions where more than one fit well, a few where no choice fit well, etc. I managed to fight my way through it, though, mostly because I'm a sucker for a student struggling with a difficult task, and it seemed totally sincere.

Agree on the survey, and the difficulty in acquiring meaningful responses. For me, questions were left unanswered, but I provided contact info and sent direct email as well.

How did you come to deduce Romanian?
