    Default Surprise tasting

    Howdy all,

    Been a while since I've been around these parts, thanks to TW for
    dropping newsgroups.

    The Mrs and I were out shopping today and stopped in to one of the
    local retailers to see what they were sampling.
    To our great surprise, they were pouring high end wines to promote the
    30% off anything over $30 bottle sale.

    I did not take notes, but here is what we had. All for free! (Well,
    not counting what we walked out with. )

    2005 Twomey Napa Merlot
    2006 Stag's Leap Artemis
    2006 Caymus Napa Cab
    2006 Dunn Napa Cab
    2005 Opus One
    2006 Duckhown Napa Cab
    2006 Beaucastel CdP
    2004 Heitz Napa Cab
    2002 Cristal

    Needless to say, my jaw hit the floor. They also had the high end room
    open for perusal where I proceeded to slobber over any and
    everything: Sassacia, Gaja, all 5 1st levels, box of 3 different
    vintages of Dom, etc. They even had a ginormus bottle of Ch. d'Yquem
    for $5K. Sitting on the floor!! Probably a Methuselah or a Salmanazar
    size.

    Enjoy! I just had to brag to someone who could appreciate what I just
    went through.

    And to think that I accused Dale of having too easy access to goodies
    in his wine stores.
