Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

Thanks! Wish we could have joined you, but there was no more room for Wine Box Tetris© in the Wootmobile.

We had lunch at Wente two years ago or so (could be 3).

But Rj had 2 more hours to drive from my house, so we really did need to leave. And both of us are home safe and sound.


Although I'm somehow missing one of the 500ml Teldeschi PS bottles. Bought and paid for 2, and only one made it home. Both of us looked thru our boxes, but it wasn't there. We both had the 1995, but the other one I bought was missing.

I blame Corrado, because he was close enough in SoCal to fly up and snag it. That, or during one of the Sunday exchanges, it slipped into MommaDeb's purse.



Oh, and I still have that jacket from Friday night. I may have to see if it will fit me!

Amen to the driving. MdS and I traded off duties in the blue woot-mobile, and after some eats at Harris Ranch made it thru surprisingly light LA traffic to do the unload, sort, check, oops, and reload for my final segment to east of San Diego. Rolled in only a bit after 22:00, but there were more than a few moments I don't remember; it was a long day.

And I think I may have some extra bottles I don't recall, possible of some late harvest, but brain still fuzzy and work beckons, so I'll know a bit more after a visit to the lockers.

Great time with all and putting some names to faces.

I remember Wente of the 70's and 80's. Would have been a nice visit, but time and space won out. Great to meet you Neal.

I think rj had you down for 2 on his list ... I'm still wondering what happened to my other 500ml Teldeschi bottle!


On the bright side ...



D&D Silent Auction wins -


  • magnum of 2005 Biale Royal Punishers, same as a previous D&D, just not in a nice box or signed.
  • 3L of Michael-David 2009 Earthquake (goes with 2006 3L I have)
  • signed 2009? Concannon Capt Joe's, &
  • signed 2007 Clayhouse

On a sadder note ...



My WW magnum decanter bit the dust. Barely touched a bottle (in a bag) and it shattered.

I still have a 2nd WW decanter (it's different shape, and may not be magnum capacity) as well as one decanter from a recent (within last 6 months) Home.Woot offer.

sniff, sniff.

I checked mine as I updated CT yesterday. I ended up with the following:

'94 and '95 PS 500mL
'97 PS 375mL
'99 PS 375mL
'00 Terranova 750mL
'01 Terranova 750mL
'09 Muscat 375mL

Double checked the math and it matches my receipt.

You'd really be sniff-sniff had one of the D&D mags have been it. At least it was just full of Napa atmosphere and not grape juice.

Good luck with all that! I bailed on a meeting at 6 PM Monday. I just couldn't do it on 2.5 hours of sleep and a full day back at school. I had a one hour nap and thought it was 5:15 am and couldn't figure out why it was so bright out or where I was! That's what I get for staying in four different places in 5 nights!

Plus, my week has something each evening and progress reports are due on Friday!

The '94 is the one I'm missing, IIRC. Because I paid for 2 500ml, 2 375ml (same 4 as yours), then a Cab Franc and a 2002 PS Lot 2. Have them all but the '94.

Which is driving me up the wall even more than the Poli-Tics thread.

I think I'm going to be relieved if nothing else when this week has ended.

Didn't even bother with supper or a glass. Just too pooped.
Shower this morning; cold. Pilot light had gone out on the heater. So out of the house at 06:15 to see if I could find the notepad.


SUCCESS, it had fallen off the top of the car on the first turn out of the drive at storage, and while slightly tattered, and now soon to be retired, the data was intact. The pen didn't do so well.

Now, back to closing shop. It's only 07:30 and I'm already tired.

Is someone missing some 2011 Prager Sweet Claire Late Harvest Riesling? Of the nine on the receipt, I still have four. Mommadeb, I have you down for two. Were these supposed to fill those two empty holes in your styro packers?

I think the morale of the story is to start inventory while still at the event, otherwise there will be a lot of cross country wootlegging to get the bottles back to their owners.

Far easier said than done. If it comes down to the stats, only 3 bottles of confusion over the whole group is pretty low. I think the total for the group was well over 10 cases, so less than 3%.
