In addition to whatever it costs I could offer up 1 of my 05 Château Rauzan-Ségla's that I bought on futures a number of years ago...gettin kind of tired of looking at them and wouldn't mind killin a babe to see how they are coming along

I can certainly wait until June- and yes, there are some hotels fairly close...

I just updated my list of dates (counting in Neil's dates). Based on this, it is looking like 6/1 will be a great date to do this (far away but lots of time to plan).

Does anyone object to 6/1?

Works for me. Temps might be in the 80's by then though (Which doesn't bother me much since I grew up in a place where triple digits are common during the summer)

Can't commit to 6/1. Might end up working, but won't know until mid to late April.

6/1 should work for me, but it's a bit far out to predict

I'd like to do two bottles of left bank, and two bottles of right bank.

Would be nice to compare the styles, although I understand that the styles will vary from winery to winery on the same bank.

Looking forward to this!

I have updated the main post to reflect current plans. We are at the moment locked in at 6/1.

Please let me know if you feel you are on the wrong list or if you are interested but not on a list.

By the way, I'm told 99, 01 and 04 are all great vintages for value from Bordeaux. 04's might be more widely available... I'm open to any of them, as long as we're consistent (all bottles from the same vintage).

SWMBO is at a conference in SF around 5/31. Might be a good reason/excuse to tag along

I'd rather stick to 99 or 01 because I think that cali cabs really shine in the 12-15 year old range and I'd bet that Bordeaux does too.
