Peter is the winemaker I take it? Thanks for the response! I don’t really care about rarity, unless it’s like OMG SO GOOD. What other wines have you really liked? So far the Poizin and the Nocetos have really impressed me. It’s hard because I know very little about wine, and so I go sort of by instinct more than any real skill.
Also, I LOVE the quotes in your sig although the second one doesn’t really make sense, but is hilariously random!
I don’t think the labrat cycle has come back around yet. I was a labrat the first week the program was offered and I have not been selected a 2nd time yet. There are lots of people wanting their first chance, I am sure!
I’m going to be in for one this week. I love age-worthy wine and I buy a lot of it in WA state. But I will look forward to trying these in a few years.
You are thinking clearly, just too hard. For a certain percentage of the population, one of these tasks is not fun and sounds difficult (backing a cow up a back staircase) one is fun and sounds easy (smearing honey onto a hot actress). I think it is a lovely metaphor.
Thanks for the great offering, Peter. You know how I feel about your syrahs; I am equally delighted to have a chance to try the Victory.
Hey, C. Lay (let me know if you want me to stop calling you that, btw), good to see you are in. I know your taste buds are very highly cultivated and your expectations are high. When you are willing to buy, that’s the Good Housekeeping seal of approval right there!
In for two … really looking forward to my first sampling of Wellington, after lurking here and reading Peter’s great posts and ramblings!
I’d love to LabRat with either of course, but think I’d prefer the Victory - I don’t feel I’ve got much experience with Syrahs yet (all the more reason to purchase, right!?). I’m definitely a CS/Meritage kind of guy… tonight’s dinner came with the lovely harmonies and counterpoint of a 2003 Cain Concept.
Earliest I’ve been in for 1 in a long time. As C-man mentioned, we got to try a bottle of the '04 Victory a few months ago. It was a big hit along with some of Clayfu’s higher end PN’s that he brought that night. I probably would have been in for more than 1 but I just can’t see myself spending this much on the Syrah’s, no matter how nice they might be. It was definitely the Victory blend (and the fact that it’s Mr. Wellington’s stuff) that had me in so early.
