How about 2005? Is that open for business? That was my first buy, but I have to admit that I've never tried the wines.

I'm just glad I stumbled upon the late day Friday email.. I have a feeling that the offer won't be around too long.
Hey -me too! The offer and birthday! [cheers.gif] I didn't get around to the e-mail until a few hours after it went out, but was still able to pick up my 2 bottles.

Steve Norhoff got his bottles already, yet mine are supposed to arrive today, yet we are no more than 25 miles apart. And making it worse, I am better looking than Nordhoff. [stirthepothal.gif]

But in terms of fast turnaround, this is prety quick from order to delivery. As fast or faster I have seen from Wind Gap and Jemrose, both recent purchases, and the wines arrived within the same week as the my order, I think.

Question now is, do I open one of the Cabs tonight over dinner and suck it up for science? [wink.gif]

No doubt you are better looking, that is why I intercepted your shipment. At least are BMIs are close [stirthepothal.gif]

Happy b-day Craig! Just getting back to my computer after a fun birthday weekend in Montreal.. Hit the big 5-0 this year and wifey went all out to make sure it was unforgettable. Hope yours was good too.

Just as a head's up, the 08 Materium is already drinking amazingly with just a short decant. Very close in quality to the 07 and one worth seeking out in bunches!

It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.
