Nice wines. After we are admitted to our top choices we should get together and open a few good bottles.

I must say that I haven't had an Opus One that was worth the money since the '96 vintage.

How did you like the '03 Pavillon Rouge? I'm still eagerly awaiting the arrival of my '03 Bordeaux that I paid for like 2 years ago.

It was quite good, I didn't buy it, so I'm not sure what was paid for it, probably \$50 or so I would guess, not terribly unreasonable but I've had better for far less. I'm a huge fan of the impossible to find Lacrima di Moro D'alba - a low production italian wine that very fruity and has a nice soft finish. It's about as unlikely to come across as Bush winning an intelligence competition, but every now and then I find some and clean the store out.

The 03 Opus was good, the best I'd ever had was a 97 (never had a 96)..

HAve you ever seen wine bid? I'm skeptical because prices here seem soooo low compared to what reality should dictate...but its an interesting site.

Glad to see another wino on the site. If I get into KGSM or Chicago, I'll mail you a bottle of Opus and we can share a 'virtual' glass.

I have used winebid before. Don't forget that you need to add 15% to the final price (if I recall) which is what they take from the buyer for auctioning the wines. They also collect 12-15% from the seller as well.

I'm in a good position because I can drive up and pick up wines that I buy from them, so I can save on shipping and not have to worry about wines getting damaged in transit.

I do not know about the Italian wine you mentioned. I really don't know much about Italian wines, but I'd like to learn. I would say that I know my way around Napa wines really well, and I have good knowledge about Bordeaux, Sauternes & Champagne. I never really took to the Pinot craze inspired by Sideways.

If I also get into one of my top choices, I'd love to share one of my bottles with you.

Miles Raymond: No, if anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am NOT drinking any *@#@@ Merlot!
