Day in Napa, 7/25 - Lagier Meredith, Corison

Original post by JonDerry, Jul 16, 2012.

I'm planning on being in Napa on Wednesday the 25th and will probably visit at least two wineries while there. Anyone care to meet up, just let me know.

My first priority seems to be Outpost Winery, though there are a few others I'm considering, I'll probably start at Outpost at 2pm if they can accommodate.

How's this for an acquisition?

If you're checking wine-searcher, I took this supposed last bottle from the Redd Collection. Even though it was listed on WS and their website at $35, it was tagged in the store at $45, but I wasn't one to argue considering that's still less than release price. Also picked up an 07' @ $40, another bargain. 

The shop owners used to manage the cellars of a lot of the wines they carry, including the LM's, so I have great confidence in the provenance to boot.

A great memory, thanks for linking OT.

Hard to believe only two and half years ago, feels like ages. I guess this was all just before my son was born, so it would seem like a long time ago.

Yep, that was the first time I met OT, probably the third with JD.  Wow. 

That night we had dinner at Redd Wood, had Jemrose Syrah and Beaucastel and OT gave me a 2009 Halcon.  I drove JD to the airport and he gave me a 2007 L-M Syrah that I finally drank two weeks ago in a head to head with '07 Alain Voge Cornal V-V.  Since then, kids, marriages, and lots of offlines.  Thanks, my friends. 

I've really had some great times with my fellow Snoothers and I hope we can do more offlines soon.
