    These were amazing. The 12 Nickel and Nickel was a little tired but still good.

    Nickel and Nickel is still one of my all time favorite wineries.

    Killer car collection too.

    Decided to open a cheap treasure brought back from a small guesthouse in Saint-Estephe where we stayed in 2018. It was a small old family chateau with their own little production and label.

    Wonderful wine for the 4th, paired with some Hood Canal spot prawns.

    Bobby, was that Pahlmyer their proprietary red or merlot (IIRC the merlot is a green label?)?

    Either way, that dude can make some killer wine.

    Speaking of Merlot I just grabbed 6 bottles of the latest 2018 Enclos de Viaud from garagiste.

    Ha! I love that movie so much. "Take it easy Myles, here, have some agua fria..."

    I will say though, Pahlmeyer and Duckhorn make about the best Merlots I've ever had.

    Ever since the Beaujolais Festival of aught-six I cannot fathom cracking another bottle.

    Let's get serious.
    Price point be damned; best of varietals, blends, etc. IYHO

    I'll open with the 2006 Cakebread Merlot, since the relatively fresh in the thread (Beaujolais aren't real wine): better than any Duckhorn I've tasted so far, although the 3 palm are pretty darn good.

    Fun approach.

    I celebrate the entire Cakebread offering so you don’t have to convince me, however I’ll still place Duckhorn’s regular merlot slightly above theirs (3 Palms is outstanding), but I’ll still place Pahlmeyer’s above all of em.

    Have to acknowledge that subsequent Cakebread merlots have not come close; must slurp the Pahlmeyer merlot.

    Cab: Ridge Monte Bello, pretty much any vintage

    Ya'll showing that you're a bunch of old fucks who confuse Beajoulais Nouveau you drank as a dentist in the 80s is representative of modern Beajoulais. Drink a bottle of Morgon Cote du Py by Foillard with 5-10 years on it and tell me it's not real wine.

    Chenin blanc (dry styles -- i consider dessert wines a whole nother category)-- Domaine Guiberteau, Breze cuvee. You probably can't find '90 anymore. But '14 is damn good too.

    Guilty as charged; suggested sources?

    Fair enough, but I didn’t become a dentist until the later aughts so I may have some catch up to do.

    Back to best at any any price IYHO: I will always love and cherish some Anomaly Vineyards cab - last I cracked was an ‘07.

    That and any Patricia Green or Lemelson Vineyards Pinot Noir - a virtual tie no matter the vintage.

    Foreau Goutte d'Or? I think we still have a few bottles stashed from the 90s.

    Then Coulee de Serrant? I've only had that once. Killer.

    Heh. Was thinking the same. Love some Beaujolais from time to time

    There are so many wines that get a bad rap because you’re drinking the cheap, only-available-in-America version or something, and then you go to the source (or at least near the source), and have some good versions, and you’re like “oh now I get what they’re talking about”. Beaujolais, (because people often have a nouveau), Chablis, Riesling, Chianti and some others I’m not remembering right now fall into this category.
    Straw basket Chianti is really good isn’t it
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    I’ll take that a step further if you don’t mind; not just varietals, but entire regions.

    I’ve been blown away by some wines from Czech Republic, and despite much preconceived notions, areas like North Georgia/Western NC mountains, The Upstate, and Idaho.
