Something to think about!

We drank the 1991 Sterling Cab we brought back from our honeymoon for our 10th anniversary. It was 14 years old when we finally drank it. Brings new meaning to the words "Wine Hoard."

That's really cool! Was it hard holding on to that bottle for so long without opening it?

I know I would have been VERY tempted to crack into it... also how did it taste when you finally DID open it?

It was more difficult to decide when to open it. No occasion was good enough. That's why your "wise words" reminded me of the bottle. We drank it almost five years ago but I remember it being really good. We enjoyed it with grilled porterhouse steaks. No, I don't have that great a memory, we took pictures. I posted a picture of the bottle at the WWCrew.

Very true sentiment. Sometimes we hang onto special bottles for far too long, waiting for the "perfect" occasion. But that occasion never seems to come. We thus need to make our own perfect occasion, and just savor the special wines we have been hoarding.

I have some older Pleiades I should open soon. I actually have a vertical of 7 vintages but still need to decide on who to share them with, when, etc.

Hopefully you'll find that special occasion very soon Richard! How long have you been holding on to them?

That's really cool Rachel. Very nice pic of the bottle, thank you for sharing the pic and story with me. I bet it tasted just that much better because of what it meant to you and your husband. Just thinking about it makes me smile! Any other special bottles you've been saving up?

Cheers!

I have had some of the Pleaides for several years. I luckily found my oldest Pleaides last year at a local shop, and at a very good price.

No kidding! How long did it take to collect them all? If you could set up the perfect environment to taste them, what would make up the "right" occasion?

Cheers!
