    11/22/2019 9:45:00 AM - Mdog....I'm not the biggest fan of syrah nor PS....I have to really be in the 'mood' for one so as a result I have only maybe 20-30 bottles in my cellar out of 1100. Have not had a Carlilsle PS but do occasionally enjoy one of my Turley PS every now and then. They are quite good! Turley also has cabs now but I don't find them to float my boat, think I have 1 left and won't buy more. I do have a few Outpost cabs and PS, VGS syrahs which are great it seems every year, also Relentless from Shaffer can be a really nice syrah blend as it ages.....I hope you were able to return that expensive Barolo for replacement or refund. Ouch! I've had to do that with a couple of $100-150 wines over the years. Wineries seem to honor them. Have never tried it at a retail establishment.

    7/26/2019 10:11:00 AM - Hey md.....I'm currently holding my Quivet....a friend opened the '16 NV and the LPV a couple weeks ago. The NV tasted great the first 15 min, seemed to change for the worse after an hour if I remember right. The LPV was rich but seemed disjointed a bit, again if I remember right. I noticed afterward he didn't post the wines on CT like he usually does. I've enjoyed a few of the '16s I've opened. It is great fruit, but personally I'm holding most all of them for a year or two more. The fruit bomb is just wearing me down!

    1/26/2019 5:00:00 AM - Curious how was the tasting? I was thinking about stopping by around 4 but I needed to get back to Ann Arbor at a decent time and decided that I didn't want to fight rush hour traffic on the way back. I've been picking-up some wine from Woods Wholesale Wine in Grosse Pointe lately - primarily the 2016 Celani cab. However, I'm not finding much in Michigan otherwise right now that I really love especially for the money. I need to stop by Old Woodward soon. Take care and thanks again for the heads-up.

Thanks for the tip, it's a fine store right in my backyard!

  • bestdamncab says:

    9/6/2017 4:18:00 PM - I think its time for you to visit Napa so I can pour you a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.

    4/8/2017 10:46:00 AM - bestdamncab, thanks for the message. Interesting that we both have 60%+ Cali wine but almost no overlap, just a few bottles of Carlisle (my largest holding). I have little French, more Italian and Spanish. If you are in Michigan give me a heads up as I alwas can use an excuse to deink something good. I was born in 1947 in Detroit too. Go Blue

    4/8/2017 8:40:00 AM - Glad to be a friend. Having been born in Detroit 70 years ago, I still miss the winters, here in California we keep the snow in the mountains. Have a great day.

    1/9/2014 12:42:00 AM - Well done michigan dogs, I am glad you enjoyed your visit. Priorat is always on my mind but have to reconize my style is closer to Rioja that's why I commented your kind TN cause it's a pity, in my unrefined opinion, as a spanish wine lover you're missing something...that's all By the way Rioja, and many other regions , worths a visit, I promisse :-) Take care with snow these days! Cheers!
