My favorites are from Washington.  Specifically the Walla Walla region.  Northstar Merlot is always good.  Le' Cole 41 Cab is great.  My absolute favorite though is a Plump Jack Reserve.  I have a 2002 right now that I just can't open.

Wine posts should never die.  Age, yes.  Sour and die.  Never.

I'm a big fan of a small vineyard in Napa called .  Their wine is no Clos des Papes, but I have an old sentimental attachment to it.  I purchase their Reserve Cabernet whenever it makes its way to my little 'burb.

Hailmary, if it is a really good liqour store the only one you definetly wouldn't be able to find is the Chalk Hill. They only make it in certain years when the conditions are right and they haven't made it I believe since '97. Not all of those years would be easy to find but there are web sites you can go to find and order them, or, I think. Also the latest vintage of the Insignia as well as the Angelus are over my price range too.

Heh MPO,

I love wine and buy a bottle or two every week end to enjoy with freinds or simply to go with the game.  Love cheese as well.  But you seem to be a little over my taste bracket. My favorite though is Borolo's.  I do not really try to distinquish to much from one Borolo to another but whenever I have guests I will break out a couple of Borolo's.  The problem with Borolo's is that the sensation wear's out after a a few glasses.  At that point I switch to Bordeaux's or Chianti's.

Now MPO, if I was going to pick up one of the bottles you have mentioned above. What do you think might be available at my local liquor store. It is a pretty good liquor store.

I just thought of something.  If you ever see it, Stones Throw makes tons of great wines, I love almost any Stones Throw wine.

I've started getting a taste for the aussie wines, like Alice White.  When I was in Germany, I fell in love with the spaetlese wines.  I'm more of a white/rose wine drinker then I am with the reds.
