    I am sipping on Sangria currently but the best wine you have ever tasted is DuVol Ryan. Kind of expensive but, order it, try it, thank me later. $#@! is magic.
    We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

    Papillon always felt like a good value to me. Kind of a bummer to hear to it disappointed but I haven't tried the 2013.

    Generally, I like all of Orin Swift's stuff.

    Bond Matriarch at the list price.

    You'll probably dismiss it but Silver Oak Napa. I get Silver Oak Napa from a source $65. At that price... Silver Oak all day.

    I also prefer Dominus. But I prefer Dominus to a hell of a lot of wine. For the same money or less Dominus all day.

    Futures generally in a hyped vintage are a great investment.

    I spent a week in wine country and bought a few case of wine. They just came in and I have had a few. Today I made some peppercorn filet mignon and truffle mac and cheese and decided the 2013 old vine zin from dry creek vineyard was best suited for the execution. It by itself has a berry fruit on the tongue and then finishes off with pepper spice .

    Well, talk about a good day.

    I'm not a fan of zin but it can cut through spicier stuff so a good pairing.

    I bought a case of wine from zuchichi after tasting their barrel of Cabernet . Apparently they sell out before they bottle. I could see why. I didn't like their zin but man o man was their Cabernet the shiznitz. Lots of fruit forward notes and pretty jammy straight from the barrel with almost no tannic dry pull on the tongue.

    My 3 bottles from Reynolds just arrived this afternoon. This 2012 Cabernet has massive fruit forward cherry notes and a smooth finish . If I am correct it was $125 a bottle with $10 shipping cost per bottle. I know I will regret not buying more but I'm not rich so I think a few will have to suffice .

    It's because it's posting from your cell phone. No big deal.

    Anyway, sounds like you throw good parties.
