Memorable Wine

1960 Chateau Margaux for taste, Mondavi 1968 Unfined Cab S for emotional factors


First Wine

Almost certainly Blue Nun or Mateus! About 1967


Unusual Wine Experience

Lunch with Joe Gallo and having my travel companion ask me what was wrong with the wine. I took a sip and said "It is cooked.Too long in the sun!" And Joe looked at me and said "You are absolutely right!"


Current Fav Wine

Pedernales Cellars GSM 2009. I think it is the best red from Texas so far!
