I'm in! I don't think I have this, and I love Peter's wines.

Dammit! I shouldn't be buying...

More quartz crystals than you can shake a stick at.

And seriously good wine.

Anyway: You are not the post police. Nobody here should have to justify expressing their opinion just because you dislike said opinion.

Thank you -- that is all.



Well said. You should post more often!

I thought the crystals automatically made the wine good.

And here I thought the idea was that the stick was supposed to shake itself. Shows what I know!

He's also been critical of the points system, publicly here on this forum. Get mad at him for that also, while you're at it. (Edit: I see PW jumped in and said the same thing as I just did).



Quite a lot of wineries are moving to Biodynamic/Organic. Its pretty fun watching the sheep run around the vineyards.

Hoo boy, were you around for the unloading of the sheep video debacle? That was a fun one. I forget which winery was involved but there were a lot of upset wooters....

Congrats on being the person formerly known as the "wooter to blame for sellout" but now known only as the generic "last wooter to woot". A much harder distinction to earn than "first sucker" yet hardly ever recognized.

This is a family favorite, it's one of the only wines we can all agree on. It's worth every penny, I would buy more, but already have two & like others have said my wine cellar is full.

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.



Have two bottles in the stash, but missed this offer. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Just opened an 2006 Wellington Victory Reserve. A strong musty smell. Anyone else have this kind of experience with his Victory wines?
