    Cheval Blanc is Cab Franc/Merlot, as are most wines from St Emilion…sometimes with dollops of Cab Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec….Petit Verdot is so often overlooked but it adds unbelievable floral aromatics even when present in small amounts

    Decided to change my name, too many Tony’s. Please let us know when this wine comes in! This sounds like a homerun and I love the Merlot based Bordeaux’s, so email us or something.
    Oh, and thanks for squeezing one in.

    Gary – Hope you had a good time at the game. I was out of town this week and just caught up on 3 episodes. Was in Chicago and picked up the CLIO for $34.00. Heavy glass bottle. I hope the wine is as good as the score of 96.. I will have to back track a couple of episodes to see if you mentioned roughly how long this one will keep.

    Did a big dinner @ Mortons in Chicago (Had the fillet – Awesome) Anyways we had 3 wines poured at the same time. We had the 2002 Cakebread Cab, 2003 BV Georges De Latour, & 1999 Ferrari Carano. Only the Ferrari was decanted since it came from a 3L bottle. As we had a 3 hour dinner I thought that each had some time to show even though young. Winner by leaps and bounds was the 2002 Cakebread. It showed very well all night!!!! Lovely. The BV GD Latour just didn’t deliver, and I didn’t expect much from the Ferrari as I have always that this was overpriced and as so – It was young, green, lacked fruit, etc. Overall a great experience and a great time!!!

    Deja Vu looks pretty interesting. Kilmer and Denzel are some of my favorite actors.

    Where do you actually hang that sign? Is it in the front of the store or does Lizy let you have that in your place?
