    I’m not a huge wine guy, any of these jump out at you?

    Feel like cracking one open this Friday.

    You need to lay that St-Emilion down for at least another 3 years man... I try to let mine go to 10/11 years. I have some 2009, 2010 and 2011's St-Emilion's and Margaux's I am just thinking about getting into now. I have a bunch more still in France in my buddies cave that I have to get home, but I have lots of time for those. Every time we go to France I buy a case or two of different regions, but we always make the pilgrimage to St-Emilion for a night or two and spend a ton of time touring around Bordeaux wineries. Love it there! This past two summers is the first two we have not been in a decade or so. Uggggh I miss it!

    @tirebob Just booked flights into Bordeaux today, I am going to have to ask you for some advice on how to spend time in the area.
    Straight up, it is hard to go wrong anywhere in the region. I don’t know what it’s is like right now, but if you plan on self touring wineries, you will usually want to winery book tastings quite a bit in advance if you want to hit the best of the best. St-Emilion is amazing! It is super quiet and shuts down early at night but swells with people like crazy during the day. So many cool shops and things too do. Rents a car and drive everywhere. Super easy to get around.

    Are you doing any other areas or is this a wine lovers trip?

    We are planning our France trip for 2023 now, so I will be sure to get some tips for some good wineries.

    Had that Pinot on the right the other week, drinks well for something with such a ridiculous wax covering

    That CVNE can not be beat for the price. That specific bottling is actually a Costco exclusive. As for the Brunello's you have there, I make it a rule to not drink any for at least 10 years. Basically the same rule for all the B's (Barolo, Barbaresco, Brunello)

    It was only one year Northern Harvest was actually that good.

    All the recents years are the same as Hondas, living off the coattails and hype while being generally crap.

    Wasn't aware of the change in quality. I don't drink much rye anymore.

    I picked up that cvne from Costco when I was there yesterday. I'm skeptical, but I'll give it an honest go.

    Update on the Brunello...
    Would not buy, again. This really surprised me!
    I liked it and it was very good, but I think my tastes are for something far less tart (which I believe fancy folks would say "more tannin than I care for").
    Would buy at $15-$20 but this was $28.

    It was a great chance to learn that I care not for high tannins, though!
