  • In this case, a '79 Mondavi Chardonnay Reserve stole the show. Just the fact that it was still upright, despite passive cellaring (another from a previously discussed estate sale my neighbor scored on) was enough to write about. However, this surprisingly gave some real, almost sublime pleasure, despite being on the precipice of oxidation. It dr... Read More

  • I don't know what's better - Fed Ex or UPS.  Unfortunately, we have no choice which one the wine clubs use.  Anyway, my case of wine is assumed to be good so I don't have to drink it all this week.  Rats. Read More
