Oh, I wish.
I curse the Virginia legislature.
The 2005 version was one of my first WOOTs from 2009 when I started.
Plan to open one of the '05s this year. Does that timing seem sensible to the experts here?

This vintage has everything we want in a reserve wine: concentration and intensity, complexity, seamless balance. FWIW the upcoming issue of Wine Enthusiast gives it a 94 rating.
I think scores are pretty stupid. That being said, I'm glad you're getting recognized for your skills (finally) by things that others deem to be quite valuable. Congrats!!
